While some yurts are commonly found in Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan, travellers may still try it around Glacier National Park. Nestled in the Rockies’ of Montana, tourists who wish to hike through the mountains visit the place as it is one of the desirable activities of the park. If you have a permit, you can even camp on the campsites along the trails! However, I propose trying out the yurts in the area. These yurts are far more modern in style and much more convenient- some with electricity or air-conditioning, as opposed to the traditional yurts used by the nomads in Central Asia. While staying in yurts may be unconventional, its uniqueness is what makes it truly enjoyable and livable. Everything you need to know about living in one may be on the list below. So take the chance and check out these top eight yurts in and near Glacier National Park, USA.
Those looking for yurts near Glacier National Park should consider this listing. Considered one of the best yurts in Montana, this two-bedroom yurt is in complete isolation on the northern end of Flathead Lake. Guests may indulge in the beautiful, outstanding 360-degree views of Flathead Lake, Glacier Park and Whitefish Mountain to the north, the Swan Mountains to the east, and the Blacktail Mountain. But that doesn’t end there! During the day, clear blue skies are set to greet you warmly and for the finale, the gleaming stars of Montana at night. As it is in the secluded area, guests will need to bring a car which they can freely park on site. There’s also an ample living-dining space, and a kitchen well equipped for all the guests’ needs. The yurt is air-conditioned and features a heating facility at the same time, so guests need not worry whatever season they’ll be visiting. Also, if you happen to share this wonderful trip with a baby, you may ask for a crib which also makes it kid-friendly.

Surrounded by trees and lush vegetation, this solar-powered yurt rental near Glacier National Park is the perfect spot to enjoy activities like hiking and horseback riding. Tourists may find various trails for bikes to see more of the beauty the neighbourhood has to offer.

What’s a better way to completely enjoy and relax? Stay in a place where there’s no Wi-Fi and completely disconnect yourself from the stress of the hurly-burly city! This yurt is a traditional Mongolian Ger where there’s no electricity and running water. However, the clean drinking water in a container will be handy at the property. Just like some of the yurts you’ll find in town, this private accommodation is only available during the months of June through mid-September. But trust me, these are the best months to enjoy this place! Please do also take note that as it is nestled in the woods, there would be no public transportation present during your visit. I suggest bringing a four-wheel drive to go in and out of the property conveniently!

This yurt has recently opened its doors to travellers on July 1, 2018. As it is new, guests will instantly feel fresh, cozy, and may take advantage of using spick and span amenities and equipment. Example of these is the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedroom, and the living area. Again, there would be no public transportation available in the area, so it’s better to bring a car or rent one before your stay. There’s a gas station accessible nearby and a spacious parking space for the guests. You’ll find two local restaurants not far from the property and two adventure parks namely Glacier Highline & Amazing Fun Center.
