When an early explorer described Wyoming’s wild wonders, people proclaimed them ‘tall tales’ and declared him delirious. But Wyoming truly is as fantastical as it sounds. Volcanoes sculpt this ever-changing scenery, where plains of bubbling geysers and technicolor springs merge into wildflower meadows, pine forests and sky scraping peaks. The wildlife is as jaw-dropping as the landscape—from grazing elk to howling wolves, and prowling grizzlies to soaring bald eagles. Lasso in rich the cowboy culture only found in the true Wild West, and you have yourself a week so unforgettable, folk back home might think you’re telling ‘tall tales’ too.
DAYS 1-2 GRAND TETONS
Join your guide to see the best of the Grand Teton, including where peaks and pines reflect perfectly in the water. Then take to the water yourself on a raft ride along the winding Snake River. Spot beavers and bald eagles then stop for a spectacular farewell evening meal.
DAYS 3-5 YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
Begin your exploration of America’s first national park by marveling at the Mammoth Hot Springs, as your Classic Journeys Guide explains how these fascinating, constantly-evolving formations came into being. Walk up to Yellowstone’s cinematic Grand Canyon in all its three-tiered glory, along the banks of the Yellowstone River and among half of all geothermal geysers on the planet, including the world-famous Old Faithful.
