Description of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NP tour

Times may change, but America’s Wild West still has plenty of wilderness to it, as you’ll discover on this unforgettable guided tour around two of the country’s best-loved national parks: Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Idyllic settings for nature-lovers and photographers, these vast open spaces promise dramatic landscapes, incredible wildlife and a host of authentic Wild West experiences to enjoy.

Grand Teton National Park offers some of America’s most breathtaking mountain scenery, and miles of self-guided hiking routes to explore. On the trail you might encounter moose, deer, river otter, colourful butterflies and of course this area is also home to both Black and Grizzly bear. The park is strewn with captivating viewpoints of lakes, waterfalls, mountains and forest. Cameras at the ready.

In Yellowstone National Park, which was the first ever created, wolf, elk, bison and bear roam a distinctive terrain formed by powerful geothermal activity. Boardwalks traverse beautiful travertine terraces, steaming mud pools, and hundreds of boiling geysers including the legendary Old Faithful. Because of the park’s immense size, you’ll be driven around must-see landmarks such as the geothermal pools of Mammoth Springs, and the Lamar Valley with its huge herds of animals.

Between parks, you can relax and enjoy the Old West atmosphere during a relaxing stay on a guest ranch, with the option for romantic horseback rides in the shadow of snow-brushed mountains.

See Mother Nature at her most raw and spectacular on this journey through Yellowstone and Grand Teton, two American icons.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NP tour

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.

Whenever possible, we use local accommodation and activity providers. We also 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.

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.

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

In Glacier National Park, we hire a specialist ranger guide who is employed by the national park, ensuring that this role and service continues to be offered in the future.
