Description of Wildlife holiday in America, incl Yellowstone

This wildlife holiday in North America is a journey around three national parks, starting in Seattle in Washington State, up near the Canadian border, and then travelling down south, with private transport, through the Rocky Mountain national parks of Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

Yellowstone National Park is the most famous, in the state of Montana, but the lesser known national parks are still home to stunning wildlife, such as the bison and bear that inhabit the broad valleys and dramatic peaks of Glacier National Park. Or the moose that amble around Grand Teton in Wyoming.

The wildlife habitats and scenery of these national parks are also a major highlight of this holiday, such as the glacial lakes and waterfalls of Glacier, the famous Jackson Hole valley of Grand Teton and, of course, the thermal geysers and lunar landscape of Yellowstone.

Staying in local hotels, and having guided tours around canyons, wildflower filled meadows or amongst glacial rocky turrets, every day is different on this wildlife holiday, which also includes an urban day in the charming city of Seattle at the start and the fascinating city of Salt Lake City at the end of the tour.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit both the places and communities we visit as well as our travellers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a 'Travellers' Code of Conduct' to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. The code includes tips on everything from handling wildlife encounters to how you can help to conserve precious natural resources. Our tour leaders will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic, this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimise the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Some key guidelines we follow include keeping to existing trails, staying in official campgrounds and disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whatever we can.

We are proud supporters of the American Hiking Society, which champions conservation issues in the United States and represents millions of hikers committed to preserving America’s vast network of hiking trails and their surrounding ecosystems.

By offering a trip which covers a smaller and more focussed area, we can spend more time highlighting the key highlights, whilst avoiding covering large amounts of road miles to visit them.

All water is safe to drink from the tap on this trip and we advise customers to bring a reusable water bottle from home, and not buy single use plastic bottles.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

On this tour as most meals are included, we shop locally for groceries, eat in small family-run restaurants and visit local shops whenever possible. This all brings economic benefit to the local communities that we visit. We use local campsites, accommodation and activity providers.

In Yellowstone, this tour provides employment to local specialist guides such as a wolf tracking guide, geologist guide, and wildlife guide. As well as giving travellers a greater understanding of wildlife in its natural habitat, we view from a safe distance and with minimal impact so as not to upset the balance of nature.
