Medicine Lake Outfitters is a wilderness expeditions outfitter specializing in horseback trips into the backcountry of Montana and Yellowstone Park.
Our trips are interpretive and offer instruction in horseback riding, fly fishing and ‘light on the land’ horse camping.
We have been host to the Yellowstone region’s visitors for the past forty four years.








In 2018 we are offering set departure pack trips to three destinations: Slough Creek in Yellowstone Park, the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness north of the Park, and Elk Horn Basin in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness on the western edge of Yellowstone.

Our Set Departure Trips are scheduled with a set destination, date, and trip length. We will book individuals and small groups on these pack trips until we reach our capacity of six to eight guests.  If you have a party of five or more we can put together a custom trip to these or several other destinations.

Bugling Bull Elk With Harem - Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness
A high country pack trip is made up of many treasured moments; the early morning sun painting the peaks, fresh grizzly tracks on a sandbar, a brightly colored trout rising to a dry fly, or perhaps the hoarse bugle of a bull elk in rut.

For the adventurous souls who undertake these horseback expeditions there are other benefits; for most a pack trip is a relaxing retreat away from the pressures and frantic pace of modern life, a chance to lose all sense of time and urgency, and an opportunity for solitude and reflection amidst the softening influences of nature.
We invite you to join us on a journey of adventure, beauty and inspiration!
