The United States of America’s epic and varied nature has long been responsible for the nicknames of metropolises and states. The Windy City will blow you away with its high-flying architecture and emblematic dishes. Whimsical public art, steely skyscrapers and a superb range of global eateries stud the streets of Chicago. Further west, the Great Plains meet the Rockies in Big Sky Country. Montana’s landscapes are defined by the sculpted peaks of Glacier National Park and vast wildernesses. On this suggested itinerary, discover the urban delights of Illinois’ capital and road trip through the picturesque scenery of Montana.
Upon arrival, be privately transferred to your luxury hotel in the heart of the Windy City. Enjoy a three night stay here, getting to know the capital of the Prairie State.
Privately tour the iconic buildings of the Windy City.
Discuss with your expert guide which route you would like to take whether it be past historic skyscrapers, Art Deco downtown, sculptures in the Loop or the secrets of Millennium Park. We’ll also reserve tables at our favourite eateries so that you can sample Chicago classics.
Board your flight to Montana.
Upon arrival, collect your rental car and drive to your luxury accommodation in scenic Glacier National Park for a three night stay. The park’s pristine forests, alpine meadows, rugged mountains and spectacular lakes are ripe for exploring.
Drive to historic Livingston.
Spend two nights in this town located on the banks of the mighty Yellowstone River. The town is rich in history, harkening back to the glory days of rail and some of the Old West’s most iconic figures including Calamity Jane. Just a short way south, Yellowstone National Park is a must-see during your stay.
Head west to Big Sky.
Spend four nights here at a charming ranch, immersing yourself in activities in the rugged scenery including horseback riding. With a guide to teach you about the area’s flora, fauna and history, ride a suspended tram to the peak of Lone Mountain. At 11,166 feet up, enjoy spectacular highland views.
