If you’re as obsessed with Yellowstone as we are (both the National Park and the TV show,) then hold on to your hats. Under Canvas has opened one of their luxe safari hotels, Under Canvas North Yellowstone-Paradise Valley, on 50 acres of spectacular Montana ranch land near the North entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The property offers sweeping Absaroka Mountain Range views and unmatched access to mother nature.

“Yellowstone, and Montana more broadly, is where we started more than 10 years ago,” says CEO, Matt Gaghen. “We’re convinced that our guests will fall in love with the less-discovered north entrance to the park and in particular, Paradise Valley. This incredible location is reminiscent of the breathtaking scenes that have showcased Montana and its Western charm in shows like Yellowstone.”

The Yellowstone River flows through the property, providing more than a mile of private access to world-class fly fishing. If you’re less of an angler, there’s also horseback riding, river floats, hiking tours, and whitewater rafting on offer through their on-site Adventure Concierge. There’s also nearby Lamar Valley to explore, with its awe-inspiring geothermal vents at Mammoth Hot Springs and opportunity for viewing wildlife and wolves.

“The American West offers some of the most beautiful outdoor destinations, attracting guests from around the world,” says Gaghen. “We enable our guests to discover some of the most special places in and around the national parks and truly experience it, while also enjoying the comforts of upscale hospitality.”

The goal of Under Canvas is to do that by treading as lightly as possible. The camps are designed to minimize disturbance and maximize open space, each with dedicated, undisturbed green spaces. At their camps across the country, they’re acutely focused on waste management, water use, and special lighting to mitigate light pollution, maximizing the enjoyment of the night’s sky. 

At the Paradise Valley location, they’ll have many of the amenities the brand is known for: West Elm furnishings, plush king-size beds, luxe linens, and even a wood-burning stove for chilly nights. Their riverside dining concept, Embers, will serve Western-style, specialty barbecue including smoked meats and sides, and cocktails mixed with local fixins. Rates start at $279 a night and can be booked on the Under Canvas site here.
