Wyoming's Cowboy Culture, Geology & Wildlife

Yellowstone & Tetons National Parks Cultural Walking Adventure

6 DaysStarting at $5,995


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 the rich 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.

  • Walk through sagebrush flats to some of the most iconic spots including Ox Bow Bend, Signal Mountain look out, and Jenny Lake for epic views of the Teton peaks (Authorized Permittee of Grand Teton National Park)
  • Soak up western Wyoming’s wondrous landscape from the water, on a cinematic raft float down the winding Snake River, spotting adorable beavers playing on the riversides and bald eagles soaring overhead.
  • Bring the black and white pictures by Ansel Adams to life when you explore Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon today in person.
  • Marvel at the majesty of the two-part waterfall, carved by the Yellowstone River and thundering down more than 300 feet on a guided canyon walk.
  • Hike through Hayden Valley, keeping your eyes sharp for bison, elk, grizzly, coyote, wolves, swans, and pelicans.
  • Follow the Yellowstone River on foot, and with your guide be on the lookout for the iconic, protected Yellowstone cutthroat trout.
  • Check your vision when you come face to face with Old Faithful because its colors — the most crystalline blue, glowing yellow, deep terracotta red — seem too vivid to be natural.
  • Watch wolf packs in the wild, spy lone bison grazing in a field, and get a glimpse of grizzly bears within the brush as you walk in glacier-carved Lamar Valley.
