Getting to Helena

Glad you are planning to visit Carroll - we look forward to seeing you on campus! Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Helena can be reached by plane, train or automobile!

Planes

The Helena Regional Airport is about a 10 min drive across town from campus. Delta and Horizon Air (a branch of Alaska Air) fly into Helena.  Connecting flights from Minneapolis/St. Paul, Salt Lake City and Seattle are most common for travelers flying in and out of Helena.

We are about a hour and a half drive from Missoula, Great Falls, Butte and Bozeman, which all also have airports. The airport codes for the airports in the area are:

  • Helena - HLN
  • Bozeman - BZN
  • Butte - BTM
  • Great Falls - GTF
  • Missoula - MSO

Trains

Travel to Helena by train is a bit trickier. Amtrak's 'Empire Builder' passenger service's nearest stops are 4 hours by car to either Shelby, MT or Havre, MT.  This has been an option for current Carroll students in the past as they catch a ride to the station with friends from the area.

Automobiles

From any direction it is a scenic drive to Helena, MT! Whether you are coming from the east, driving towards the Rocky Mountains, or coming over some mountain passes to get here - it is beautiful.
