Ernest Hemingway spent 5 summers in the mountains northeast of Yellowstone in the 1930’s. He wrote here, fished here, hunted here and many of his experiences in this region helped make him the American Icon he became. We believe that the time Hemingway spent in this region represents the most neglected part of the writer’s biography. You are invited to come and learn all there is to know about Ernest Hemingway’s Adventures in the Yellowstone High Country.
Tours leave from the historic Range Rider Lodge in Silver Gate, MT, Wednesday through Sunday at 8:00am, returning at about 11:00 am. Our guide will accompany you in your own vehicle to our Hemingway exhibit at one of Hemingway’s favorite watering holes and enjoy a fully catered breakfast before touring two of America’s most beautiful roads: The Beartooth Highway and The Chief Joseph Scenic Highway.

Evening Dinner Tours
Like our Lunch Tour, this trip will cover both the Beartooth and Chief Joseph Scenic Highways and cover every detail of Hemingway’s five seasons in the Yellowstone High Country. The sunset timing will provide a more dramatic setting for the tour and increase the chance of wildlife sightings and photo opportunities. We will cover all the writing, hunting and fishing adventures while enjoying two of Hemingway other favorite pastimes: eating and drinking.
Horse Pack Trips
On this trip we will ride on horseback to a backcountry camp near the Crazy Lakes, one of Hemingway’s favorite places. We will revisit his trips to this region and study Hemingway’s time in the Yellowstone High Country, while in the capable hands of the guides at Beartooth Plateau Outfitters who have been operating out of Cooke City for more than 20 years.
