Trip Itinerary: Bike, Hike, Rock Climb and Raft in
Wyoming's Wilderness. The pristine wilderness and rugged
beauty of America's most beloved national parks--Grand Teton
and Yellowstone--set the stage for our action-packed
adventure. In six extraordinary days, we discover waterfalls,
buffalo herds, and thundering geysers in Yellowstone, a premier
geological treasure. In the Tetons, we rock climb, bike
backroads and raft the Snake River's fun-filled rapids.
Day 1 Bridger-Teton-Upper Geyser Basin. Pedal
through Bridger-Teton National Forest with a gradual descent
through beautiful alpine meadows to the Buffalo River valley.
Then head to Yellowstone and walk through Upper Geyser Basin
and the world's largest concentration of active geysers. Witness
Old Faithful's dramatic performance and settle in to the comforts
of classic Old Faithful Inn, dating from 1903.
Day 2 Avalanche Peak. After a last viewing of Old
Faithful's predictable eruption, head off to hike to the summit of
Avalanche Peak with breathtaking, panoramic views of the
craggy, snow-capped Absaroka peaks and the serene waters of
Day 3 Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Spend
the morning watching wildlife in pastoral Hayden Valley and
then hike the golden-hued rim of Yellowstone's Grand Canyon
to view the chasm and Lower Falls from Artist's Point.
Day 4 Jenny Lake-Grand Tetons. Choose your own
adventure! Spend the day in Grand Teton National Park taking a
self-guided hike to Inspiration Point and Cascade Canyon. Or
choose to stroll the shoreline of idyllic Jenny Lake or paddle a
canoe through its crystal clear waters.
Day 5 Hidden Falls-Grand Tetons. Strap on a
harness and experience an introductory day of rock climbing
thrills near cascading Hidden Falls. Just bring a brimming smile
and a spirit of adventure, then leave the rest to our expert
guides. Or you can choose instead to take another hike,
horseback ride or fly fish in the area.
Day 6 Antelope Flats-Snake River-Jackson. Pedal
through wildlife-filled Antelope Flats beneath the soaring Tetons
before boarding rafts for a thrilling afternoon of whitewater fun
on the Snake River and the conclusion of our memorable journey
Family Trip Highlights: Experience a camping or
