The world’s oldest National Park sits atop a super-volcano and features Earth’s largest collection of geothermal features. The Tetons contain some of the oldest rock in North America – 2.7 billion-year-old metamorphic gneiss. Experience the superlative beauty of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
Yellowstone and Grand Tetons have very extreme weather – in fact, the highest recorded difference in temperature in a 24-hour period was recorded in Montana at over 100 degrees! July can be warm and dry in the day, but cold in the evenings with highs in the 70s and lows in the 30s. It can snow any month of the year and often does!

You will be flying into Jackson Hole Airport. You’ll want to pick a flight that arrives before 12pm MST on the first day. Alternatively, we can collect you from your accommodation in Jackson at around 11:15am if you’ve arrived early. At the end of your trip, your guide will drop you back at Jackson Hole Airport at 12pm for your travel home (or back at your accommodation in Jackson if you’re staying on.)
Your journey begins today! You’ll meet your group and guides in Jackson and get to know each other over lunch at a local brewery. Then, set off for a hike to prepare you for the week. In the evening, you’ll enjoy dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants.

Make an early start in Grand Teton National Park to spot the wildlife when it’s most active. You’ll spend several hours with your naturalist guide exploring the park and looking for bears, elk, bison, pronghorn, elk, and more! In the afternoon, you’ll spend 3 hours floating down the scenic Snake River. Look our for moose and bald eagles, who are often spotted along the shores! After the float, we’ll make our way to our campsite in Yellowstone National Park.
Meals: B, L, D
Early this morning, we’ll head up into the Lamar Valley, where wolves, bears, bison, and more are most active at dusk. We’ll spend some time spotting wildlife before setting off on a moderate hike. In the evening, we’ll relax at camp and tell ghost stories by the fire.
Meals: B, L, D
This will be the most challenging day for hiking, but it’s most definitely worth it as you hike the Seven Mile Hole. This trail combines Yellowstone’s best features – the rugged beauty of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, coniferous forests, robust wildlife, and active geothermal features along the trail. You’ll enjoy lunch at the base of the canyon before making the challenging ascent back to the campsite. Shorter hikes are available for those who would like them! In the evening, we’ll retire to our glamping accommodations in West Yellowstone.
Meals: B, L, D
Today, we’ll hit Yellowstone’s most famous features: Grand Prismatic Spring and Old Faithful. After enjoying the show, we may have time for one last hike in the park. In the afternoon we’ll slowly make our way back to Jackson for one final evening together.
Meals: B, L, D
Enjoy breakfast in a lovely cafe in Jackson Hole, known for its delicious European-style pastries. Squeeze in one final hike if there is time along the Snake River before departing for the airport and bidding farewell to a new group of friends, and your adventure in The West.
