Bison, bear and wolves, oh my! You will not believe this trip. Steaming pots of turquoise and copper. Sulfur in the air. A geyser shooting off like clockwork. Tumbling waterfalls. Another Grand Canyon! Golden grassland. Snowcapped peaks. Rushing rivers. Weathered barns. An old Western town - with real-life cowboys! The Continental Divide by bike. Gorges by foot. Glacial lakes by boat. Finding your way through a life-size maze. And camping out every night. These two national parks are unreal.

  • Marvel at Yellowstone’s extraordinary geysers, including the granddaddy of them all, Old Faithful
  • Pedal beneath the Teton Range, passing weathered barns and grazing horses
  • The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, with its multicolored walls and thundering waterfalls
  • As you kayak across Yellowstone Lake, look for white pelicans, waterfowl or even a bald eagle
  • Breathe in fresh mountain air while kicking back with your family under a vast Wyoming sky

Itinerary

Day 1 Bubbling mud pots, spouting geysers and steaming vents in Yellowstone Pedal through the heart of the park along the Firehole River, taking in the sights, sounds - and smells! - of this strange wonderland Kids will love seeing the fumaroles of Biscuit Basin and legendary Old Faithful Geyser up close.

Day 2 Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the park's most dramatic feature, where waterfalls cascade over pastel-colored cliffs A leisurely walk through alpine meadows and stands of lodgepole pines along the canyon rim provides breathtaking vistas deep into the gorge.

Day 3 Breathe in fresh mountain air while kicking back with your family under a vast Wyoming sky Local guides take us on a flat-water kayaking trip across Yellowstone Lake, providing insight on the region's history and geology as we paddle.

Day 4 Eagles and bison and bears, oh my! Explore Grand Teton National Park, a paradise of bluebell-strewn meadows, shimmering lakes, thick woodland and sawtooth mountains Hike through conifer forests and aspen groves near the shore of Emma Matilda Lake or giddyup on an optional horseback ride.

Days 5-6 Pedal beneath the Teton Range, passing weathered barns and grazing horses Ride to the old-west town of Jackson Hole Traffic up ahead - watch for roaming bison! Our comfortable campground lies in view of the jagged Teton peaks Spin to glacier-carved Jenny Lake and hop aboard a boat for a different perspective of this awe-inspiring landscape.
