Montana Lake Excursions
Lake Excursions at Paws Up
There’s something uniquely wonderful about a glacial lake. Maybe it’s the calm, cerulean surface, inviting you to splash right in. Or maybe it’s the remote beauty and spectacular views of distant, rocky shores. Whatever it is, high-mountain lake excursions from The Resort at Paws Up® deliver on the promise of an idyllic retreat. Zip around on a personal watercraft, skim along on skis or a wakeboard, soak up glistening rays and ogle the majestic Chain-of-Lakes scenery. Your Paws Up guides will handle everything from launching your boat to serving you a tasty lunch. With two Clearwater Valley lake houses to choose from, you’ll have easy access to a wide assortment of wet adventures and relaxing ways to dry yourself off. For anyone who loves the water, this is nature at her very best.
The Lake House at Seeley Lake
Blast away from shore and into a 1,025-acre aquatic paradise. Situated on a wooded shoreline, the Lake House at Seeley Lake boasts a dock large enough to accommodate all kinds of water activities. Take a two-passenger Polaris personal watercraft for a spin. Go for a joyride in our speedy powerboat. Or strap on your skis and show the locals a rooster tail or two. There’s also tubing, wakeboarding, a water trampoline, paddleboats and sea kayaks. A short 25 minutes from The Resort at Paws Up, trips to the Lake House allow for a leisurely stop into the town of Seeley Lake for a cone of locally made huckleberry ice cream. Full- and half-day excursions are available. Contact a Paws Up concierge for pricing and availability. (Guests must be 18 to pilot motorized watercraft with passengers and 16 to pilot personal watercraft solo.)
The Island Lodge at Salmon Lake
Nestled among pines on a breathtaking island, the Island Lodge at Salmon Lake provides access to five picturesque miles of water at the southernmost tip of the Seeley Swan Valley. It serves as the central gathering spot for a host of activities, including waterskiing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and sunset pontoon boat tours. In every direction, you’re surrounded by the largest and oldest ecosystem in the Lower 48. To the west, you’ll take in the incredible Mission Mountains; to the south, the gorgeous Garnet Mountain range and to the east, the legendary Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. What’s more, the lake is protected by a game range on three sides. Just 15 minutes from The Resort at Paws Up, trips to Salmon Lake will have you bobbing up and down for joy. Full- and half-day excursions are available. Contact a Paws Up concierge for pricing and availability.
