Helena, Montana, is Montana’s Capital City and located between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. Helena has a rich gold rush history, and exploring Last Chance Gulch brings the history to life. Designated a ride center by the International Mountain Biking Association, Helena has over 75 miles of trails that originate in the Downtown area, offering visitors a world-class mountain biking or hiking experience. Rand McNally and Geocaching.com awarded Helena the Best of the Road “Best for Geocaching” title. Tour our Capitol. Take a hike overlooking the beautiful Helena Valley. Hop aboard the Last Chance Tour Train to discover Helena’s history. Download our Walking App and tour the Westside Mansion District, featuring the elaborate homes of early miners. Grab an ice cream cone or visit an old-fashioned soda fountain. We can’t wait to host you in Helena.

We also offer step-on guide service, guided day and half day tours, Montana T-shirts, and other selective souvenirs. We cater to individuals, group tours, and school groups, including shuttle service for special occasions. We can also arrange group food services for a Montana style lunch or dinner.
