TRANSPORTATION: Transfer to/from the Great Falls International Airport or Great Falls hotel. Round-trip: $100 per person, $75 per person for parties of 4 or more. We provide transportation as per the following schedule only:
Arrival: We typically pick up guests between 12:30 to 1:30 pm and will depart Great Falls no later than 2:00 pm on arrival day. Call beforehand for a meeting time and place. Please make flight arrival before 2:00 pm.
Departure: The JJJ van will leave the Ranch around 9:30 am on departure day, arriving in Great Falls around 11:30 am. Please make sure the flight is after 12:00 p.m. on departure day.
If your itinerary must fall outside this schedule, you can arrange to stay in one of Great Falls’ many motels the night prior to, or after your trip. We can help with hotel referrals. *Because airlines often overbook flights causing some guests’ arrival delays, it may be wise to arrive in Great Falls the day before. If your flight arrives late, or you have an early flight out on departure day, you must rent a car.

NOTE: We reserve the right to change the day-to-day itinerary for reasons of weather, wildfires, rider ability, and unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. Children must be at least 10 years old and physically capable of riding long days in the saddle. Due to the nature of horseback riding in the wilderness, participants MUST be in good physical condition, and trips are not recommended if many health or physical issues exist or if you require a special diet. While we carry a satellite phone for emergencies, it is very difficult to bring someone out from a trip to seek medical attention. The emergency helicopter is costly and is for emergencies only. We also have the right to exclude a rider from a trip for inability to ride or behavior that endangers the other riders or the horses. **
