Reminder: We don’t have a single retreat center. Make sure you double-check the location of your specific retreat before hitting the road. Find more information about our luxury venues… and get driving directions.

Getting to Bozeman, MT

Traveling to Montana is easier than you think — as long as you plan ahead. Bozeman is located in the southwest corner of Montana in the heart of the Gallatin Valley and near Yellowstone National Park.

You’ll fly into our beautiful, modern Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) and immediately feel like you’ve stepped into the Old West. Exposed wooden beams, friendly people, and a laid-back vibe greet you the moment you step off your plane. Airfare to Montana can be expensive, so we recommend purchasing your ticket early — not trying to find last-minute fares.

And, remember, don’t skimp on the size of your suitcase! Montana weather is notoriously unpredictable. Pack more layers than you think you’ll need. Pack for warmth and cold — no matter what month you’re coming for a retreat.

Trust us (and read our packing lists).

Yellowstone National Park

Don’t leave Montana without exploring our breathtaking Yellowstone National Park. These guidelines will help you maximize your time in the park:

Make Yourself at Home

If you plan to arrive early or stay late in the surrounding area, we have some recommendations for extending your stay.
If you’re staying for a trail ride on the Monday after your retreat, flying out Tuesday morning is your best bet. Keep in mind you probably won’t get flights out in the evening (especially to the east coast). Flights typically have early morning or early afternoon departures out of Bozeman.

Extending Your Stay

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park (YNP) Day Trip: One option to consider is adding on a day trip to Yellowstone Park on Monday. We can provide maps for routes to take through the park and ideas for short hikes. If you have more time, we definitely recommend more then one day in YNP.

If you would like to use a guide, we recommend Chris from Yellowstone Guidelines, who we use on our Yoga & Yellowstone retreat.
