Samaa Retreat Center, located in the heart of the beautiful Flathead valley, is in an area that offers an abundance of adventurous activities. Surrounded by the Swan and Mission mountain ranges and a multitude of serene lakes the valley is filled with picturesque beauty for you to enjoy around every turn.
Glacier National Park
No trip to Flathead Valley is complete without time in our beloved Glacier National Park. A multitude of day hikes and scenic views await those who visit this truly spectacular place.
The Bond Creek trail is a brief jaunt down the 83 along the shores of Swan Lake. The relatively moderate hike offers serene forest views up to the brilliant crystal blue colored two-tiered waterfall. A dip in these crystal waters will rejuvenate your mind body and soul.
Hiking the Jewel Basin, home to different 27 lakes, is a treat like no other. The climb rewards you with scenic views overlooking the Flathead valley, glorious patches of summertime wildflowers and ample wildlife.
A quick 10-minute drive away, the shores of Flathead Lake offer a wide array of scenic beauty and water activities. The largest lake west of the Mississippi river, Flathead Lake has ample opportunities for fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing and jet skiing
We are located a short drive from two incredible ski resorts: Whitefish Mountain Resort and Blacktail Mountain Resort, so you can hit the slopes then come back to unwind.
Make your winter dreams come true with a dogsledding excursion with local business Base Camp Bigfork! Their dogsledding excursions provide a “hands on” approach allowing you, the participant, the opportunity to drive your own team of their friendly and hard working Inuit Sled Dogs.
