Northern Idaho - Western Montana Drive

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip to briefly explore northern Idaho and part of Montana in mid-July. We only have a week and will be flying into Spokane, then driving a rental car. Tentatively, we want to visit Sandpoint and Bonner's Ferry, Idaho then Kalispell/Glacier NP and Missoula, Montana before returning to Spokane and flying home. I know that is a lot of ground to cover in just one week, but more time and fewer places are not options - we'll just get a glimpse of the highlights and hope for another visit later.

Though I would welcome suggestions regarding must-see places and things near our planned destinations, my primary questions are these:

a. Kalispell to Missoula - Which is more scenic - Highway 93 or Highways 83 and 200?
b. Missoula back to Spokane - Which is more scenic - Highway 200 through Sandpoint or Interstate 90 through Coeur d"Alene?

I should point out that we've previously spent time in both Coeur d"Alene and Sandpoint, so the portion of the drive between those towns and Spokane is not part of my question. However, we have never driven between Missoula and those towns .

Which way should we go?
