Welcome to WTR Outfitters, and thanks for taking the time to see what we're all about.


WTR Outfitters is the oldest and most established outfitter operating in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. We are based out of Swan Valley in northwest Montana and operates throughout the entire Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex (comprised of the Bob Marshall, Great Bear, and Scapegoat Wilderness areas).


Our livestock and guides will take you to breathtaking areas where no roads or motorized machinery exist.


We offer guided summer pack trips and backcountry fall hunts. We also offer backpack and hybrid backback/livestock supported trips.

We combine first-rate service with quality, comfortable accommodations and hearty, healthy backcountry meals.

We invite you to learn more about our services and approach to what we do. We would love to share this beautiful country with you that we fondly call home.

“Here is one of the most completely preserved mountain ecosystems in the world, the kind of wilderness most people can only imagine: rugged peaks, alpine lakes, cascading waterfalls, grassy meadows embellished with shimmering streams, a towering coniferous forest, and big river valleys.”
