Eric + Veronica Sheckleton


Highline Adventures was originally created as a way for two outdoor adventure-lovers to raise a family in the state they love. CEO Eric met Veronica in Glacier National Park in 1994, where they were both employed. Their first hike together was the Highline Trail, following the Continental Divide below the Garden Wall. In 2006, after 12 years together, the birth of two beautiful daughters, and a wealth of industry experience, the two decided to pour their expertise into a business. With a deep love for Montana and a background in guest service and hospitality, Highline Adventures was born. Their goal was two-fold: support local people with a family-style work environment while treating guests like family, too. Ever since then, it has been their sole focus to treat Montana’s people, visitors, and lands with care.
