The Flathead Valley is composed of lakes, green meadows, lush timber, quaint towns and awe-inspiring views of the Mission and Swan Mountain Ranges.

These guardians with snow-capped peaks, green meadows and lush timbered slopes protect a world lost in time and untouched by mankind. Naturalists refer to this wild and scenic area as the “Crown of the Continent,” which touts the most intact ecosystem in the “Lower 48.”
