Itinerary

ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any such changes once on tour. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested in the Group Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

Day 1 - Jackson
Welcome to the historic town of Jackson, Wyoming, where fur trappers and frontiersmen once gathered. Surrounded by towering mountain ranges and the meandering Snake River, Jackson is your gateway to discovering Yellowstone National Park. We’ll have a group meeting at 6 pm, followed by a welcome dinner. Afterwards, the evening is all yours to explore the town’s nightlife. Feel free to wander the plaza or maybe head to the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for a drink.
Day 2 - Grand Teton National Park
After breakfast, embark on a day with your expert guide exploring Grand Teton National Park, one of the most stunning places in Wyoming. The Grand Teton mountain range rises above a scene rich with abundant wildlife and pristine lakes. Take a walk to Inspiration Point for outstanding views or enjoy a scenic stroll around the glacially carved Jenny Lake and gaze up in awe at the surrounding landscape. Have a picnic, maybe spot a moose or even a grizzly bear and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place. Other wildlife you might find include elk, beavers and black bears, so keep your eyes peeled! We’ll continue on to viewing sites for buffalo and antelope herds along the Gros Ventre River and Antelope Flats.
Day 3 - Jackson
This morning, take in the fascinating artwork of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Featuring work by famed artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Andy Warhol, the museum’s collection chronicles the history of wildlife in art, from the present all the way back to 2500 BC. You’ll have the rest of the day free to further explore Jackson – perhaps wander among the many shops or opt for an exciting whitewater rafting adventure on the Snake River. In the evening, there is an optional activity (at your own expense) to experience an authentic chuckwagon meal at the famous Bar J Chuckwagon. In the 1800s, cowboys who rode the western range would share a meal over tall tales and music around the chuckwagon. Embrace the spirit of the Wild West with a rib stickin’ meal and authentic cowboy entertainment.
Day 4 - Yellowstone National Park
An early start sees us on the road to the crown jewel of the American national parks, where you’ll spend the full day exploring with your expert guide. Yellowstone is the country’s first national park and is a mountain wilderness, home to grizzly bears, wolves and herds of buffalo and elk. Watch as Old Faithful sprays over 4000 gallons (14,000 litres) of boiling water into the air, then be hypnotized by the startling colours of the Grand Prismatic Pool. Other highlights include Yellowstone Canyon with its geysers along the north and south loop, and the tranquil Yellowstone Lake. Be sure to pack your bathing suit for a soak in the Mammoth natural hot springs.
Day 5 - Yellowstone National Park
It’s another early morning for a fascinating day with a local wolf-tracking expert. There is no better place than Yellowstone to see these magnificent animals in the wild. We meet up with an experienced naturalist guide who tracks the movements and behaviour of Yellowstone wildlife almost daily and know the best places to find the animals. There will be optics for everyone- top-of-the-line binoculars and high-powered spotting scopes for each person, so no one will miss out
Day 6 - Yellowstone to Jackson
After breakfast, make your way back to Jackson (approximately 3 hours), where you will arrive early afternoon. Your tour ends here and you are free to explore more of Jackson or depart at your leisure.
