Planning your next board retreat, association meeting, corporate event or group tour just got even easier. Beginning today, American Airlines is offering nonstop flights from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Los Angeles (LAX), and Chicago (ORD) to Glacier Park International Airport (FCA) in Kalispell, in addition to nonstop flights from nine other cities throughout the U.S.  Access to Kalispell, Whitefish and Glacier National Park has never been easier. Here are five reasons why you and your attendees or clients should head to Western Montana’s Glacier Country for a fresh perspective and some fresh mountain air.

Oh, Montana. You are beautiful.

Combine all that with charming small towns, exceptional lodging and amenities, meeting planning assistance, unique venues, state-of-the-art technology, transportation and, of course, adventure, and we’ve got everything you need for an unforgettable time.

ACTIVITIES + ADVENTURE

Book a group stay at a national hotel chain, or, for a quintessentially Montana retreat experience, consider a lodge or guest ranch. Team-building activities abound here, too. Gather your group for a guided whitewater, floating or fly-fishing excursion; a hike in Glacier National Park; a local festival or a live music event; a bike, fat bike, ski or snowshoe adventure; or a brewery, distillery or cidery tour. Groups come together in Montana because our recreation opportunities are second to none.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

There are many reasons why Kalispell and Whitefish make a spectacular mountain meeting or group tour destination, but one of the top reasons is their proximity to what makes Western Montana so exemplary. Both are bustling communities, Kalispell has a historic downtown district that pairs Old West charm with a lively arts and culture scene, and is centrally located between Flathead Lake—the largest freshwater lake in the West—and the Crown of the Continent—Glacier National Park. Whitefish is one of Montana’s most charming mountain towns—located at the base of Whitefish Mountain Resort—full of boutiques shops, art galleries, cafes and eateries offering fresh local foods. Both have unmatched outdoor recreation opportunities beckoning from every direction. Explore wilderness areas, national forests, countless rivers and lakes, two Indian reservations, wildlife-viewing areas, museums, galleries and let’s not forget the local micro brew and distillery scene. You’ll find endless options for day trips and side excursions that let you take in everything Western Montana’s Glacier Country has to offer, making your meeting, convention or group tour extraordinary.
