Welcome to the Travel Montana Media Center! Interested in how we got started? Want to know more about being active in Montana? Looking for the latest press information? You’ve come to the right place!
Travel Montana is part of Zephyr United, a small company based in Red Lodge, Montana that has been running tours around the world for 24 years.
We formed Travel Montana in October 2020 as a response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. With new demand for domestic vacations due to restrictions on international travel, we decided to leverage our Montana expertise to offer Americans (and, ultimately, those outside the country) vacations in the state we consider the top active travel destination in the country.
Why We Are Unique
- Based in the small town of Red Lodge, Montana (population 2,300)
- 24 years of experience running tours
- Focused only on active tours in Montana
Allan Wright, founder and president, launched Zephyr Adventures in 1997 as the world’s first inline skating tour company. Since then he’s expanded Zephyr’s offerings to include active vacations of all kinds around the world.
In 2000 Allan, a Seattle native, wanted to move back west to the mountains. After doing a search of small towns in Colorado and Montana, Allan selected the extremely cute town of Red Lodge as international headquarters for his small company.
In 2014, the company launched Taste Vacations, a luxury travel company exclusively focused on food, wine, and beer tours.
In 2020, the company launched the Montana Vacation Company in response to the pandemic, to put in one place all the Montana tours it was already running, and to create more tours to meet the demand for domestic vacations.
For more information, please contact Allan Wright. We are happy to be a resource for general questions on Montana active vacations.
