The natural corridor of glacier-carved valleys, snow-capped mountains & volcanic geysers that intersects Montana & Wyoming is arguably one of the U.S.’ largest outdoor playgrounds and classrooms. The last pocket of wild America will be at your doorstep as we join our expert guide exploring both Yellowstone & Grand Tetons National Parks. Investigate the geological wonders of these parks and learn how they were created. Hear both sides of the debate concerning migration patterns of bison in Yellowstone. Stare 1,000 feet down into the V-shaped gorge of the red, pink, yellow, and orange splashed walls & rushing waterfalls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Search for grizzly bears, bison, elk, pronghorn, and coyotes in the rolling, sagebrush-dotted hills of Hayden Valley.
What You'll Do
Over the course of our week-long adventure, we’ll hike, raft, learn & explore in the heart of the Wild West. Beginning in the mountain town of Big Sky, MT, we’ll venture along Yellowstone’s iconic landscapes watching Old Faithful erupt into the blue skies above and hiking along the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone watching waterfalls twice the size of Niagara plummet into the valleys below. Continue to Wyoming’s outdoor paradise of Jackson Hole and raft along the scenic Snake River Canyon. End the journey meandering through the craggy, snow-capped peaks of Grand Teton National Park.
What You'll See
Each day will bring a new adventure. Keep your eyes peeled for the nation’s largest concentration of elk, wild bison herds, grizzlies, moose & antelope. Take a zip-line through Montana’s towering limestone cliffs, alpine forests and glacier-carved valleys looking out for wildlife along the way. Take a tram to the top of Jackson Hole Ski Resort and hike along the mountain trails taking in the natural beauty of the Tetons in the distance. Each day will be book-ended with the best in western hospitality including a 320-acre ranch, luxury cabins and a quaint lodge right in the heart of Yellowstone.
Where You'll Stay
Over the course of the journey, we’ll stay in three unique properties that reflect the character and history of this wild corner of the U.S. In Big Sky, MT, we’ll base ourselves at a 110-year-old homestead reshaped into a Montana guest ranch. Stay in the heart of Yellowstone National Park (yes, we have the permits for that!) at the well-known Canyon Lodge. Cap the trip off with two nights in luxury cabins at a Jackson Hole resort & spa. Each of our lodges is hand-selected to immerse you into the natural surroundings of this beautiful corner of the U.S. while retaining all the comforts and luxuries of home.
The trip begins in Big Sky, Montana. Hit the ground running exploring this beautiful mountain town and zip-lining through the alpine forest. Continue to Yellowstone National Park where we’ll uncover and learn about the park’s unrivaled natural
features including erupting geysers, steep canyons, waterfalls & fields of wildflowers and bison. End the journey in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a perfect jumping off point to Grand Teton National Park and some of the most postcard-perfect surroundings in the U.S.

“Yellowstone & the Grand Tetons have been on our bucket list for ages. It is really one of those areas that it helps having a guide so much. From the trails we explored to the endless knowledge and stories our guide shared of the area were the perfect addition to the experience. Our children were thrilled to be in the “Wild West” and each hotel we stayed at was perfectly suited for the group. Couldn’t have asked for more! ”
