Jackson Sightseeing
Admire the dazzling natural wonders of Grand Teton National Park by raft as you float down the Snake River, keeping a keen eye out for moose and grizzly bears. You'll visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art, featuring pieces that date back as far as 2500 b.c. Then, walk through the town's signature elk-antler arches in Town Square as you enjoy the rest of the afternoon at leisure. This evening, indulge in a true taste of cowboy life, joining your companions for a Regional Dinner at a local camp, paired with stories and music.

Jackson – Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks – West Yellowstone (2 Nights)
Learn about the Mormon settlers who battled the harsh conditions of Jackson Hole to sustain their community in Mormon Row, an Historic District we'll have an opportunity to visit as we chart our course through Grand Teton National Park. Travel along the scenic Teton Park Road and stop at the Colter Bay Visitor's Center to view a collection of American Indian artefacts. Arriving in Yellowstone National Park, you'll pay a visit to Old Faithful, watching as its waters arc high into the air as it has done approximately every 90 minutes since the Washburn Expedition discovered it. Encounter first-hand Yellowstone's spouting geysers, bubbling mudpots and turquoise hot springs and learn about this geothermal wonderland.

Yellowstone National Park Sightseeing
Our day begins the expansive landscapes of Hayden Valley, home to herds of bison, scattered elk and the occasional grizzly bear. Explore the rusting walls of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, then continue on the upper loop to Dunraven Pass and the Lamar Valley, the most ruggedly beautiful regions of the park. At Mammoth Springs, admire the gentle cascade of water running down the multi-coloured mineral terraces, resembling frozen waterfalls cascading down into the valley.

West Yellowstone – Missoula
Big Sky Country beckons next as we travel through Montana and stop at the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site. Gain insights into the heritage of cowboys and cattlemen at this working ranch which celebrates the Western cattle industry.
