Helena, the capital of Montana, is a four-season vacation destination of boundless appeal for outdoor adventurers, active families, history and architecture buffs, and anyone who enjoys spending time amid a scenic and photogenic setting. The surrounding wilderness offers thousands of miles of forest trails and trout-filled streams, while downtown Helena reveals its gold rush heritage through streets of well-preserved Victorian buildings that invite hours of pleasant ambling. Find flights to Helena and be on your way to Helena Regional Airport (HLN)—the gateway to this charming city in the mountains.
Helena flights land just a 10- to 15-minute drive from downtown. Get there by renting a car from one of five rental companies based at the airport. Having a car is probably the most convenient option if your plans include trips to the Great Divide Ski Area, located about 30 miles northwest of Helena. Consider stopping at the ghost town of Marysville on the way. Other transportation options include taxis and a town car service. A courtesy phone for the local cab company is located in HLN's baggage claim area, near the east entrance to the terminal. Curbside pick-up by the local town car company should be arranged in advance. A number of Helena hotels offer free shuttle services for their guests. After you reach your hotel, you'll find most of the city's sights—including the Montana State Capitol building, the turn of the century Helena Cathedral, and the historic Westside Mansion District—can be reached on foot. Furthermore, the city operates a free, seasonal shuttle that takes hikers and mountain bikers from downtown to many of the region's trailheads.
