Itinerary

DAY ONE: YELLOWSTONE LOWER LOOP

This tour allows you to see Yellowstone’s significant wildlife, wild places, and cultural sites. On day one, we will visit the murky and mysterious Mud Volcano area, Hayden Valley, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Norris Geyser Basin (one of the hottest places on Earth), Obsidian Cliffs, and Mammoth Hot Springs. We will overnight at the historic Chico Hot Springs Resort (Chico), located in Paradise Valley, Montana. The resort is a short and scenic 30-minute drive north of Yellowstone.

DAY TWO: YELLOWSTONE UPPER LOOP

On this tour, we will explore the Lamar Valley (the American Serengeti), Firehole Canyon Drive, Grand Prismatic Hot Spring, the largest hot spring in the world, and an obligatory stop at the world-famous Old Faithful Geyser before returning to Jackson. Wildlife encountered may include black and grizzly bears, bison, bighorn sheep, eagles, elk, moose, mountain goats, osprey, wolves, pronghorn, and coyotes.

DAY THREE: GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

This tour allows you to see the significant wildlife, scenic vistas, and cultural sites of Grand Teton National Park in one day (approximately 9–10 hours). You will have a chance to see moose near Mormon Row, visit the Pierce Cunningham Cabin (the site of an old-fashioned western shootout), Mt. Moran, Coulter Bay Marina, Signal Mountain, Jenny and Jackson Lakes, the Bar BC Dude Ranch, and a couple of our secret spots along the way.
