Northwest Wyoming has huge bragging rights. It’s home to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (and the skiing mecca, Jackson Hole). The landscape is classic Wild West: frontier towns, powder-puffed peaks, grazing bison, elk and pronghorn antelope.
Glacier-scraped valleys and volcanic plateaus, fossil forests and eroded basaltic lava flows create an otherworldly region that transitions to serene lakes and fierce rivers that cascade into mighty falls.
Rainbow-hued canyons backdrop the powerful geothermal forces that fuel more than 10,000 natural hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles in Yellowstone.
On the Yellowstone Multisport Adventure we’ll explore Lamar Valley in the northeastern pocket of Yellowstone. It’s often referred to as the “Serengeti of North America” due to its abundance of bison, elk and antelope. And, wolves!
Floating down the snaking Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, we’ll learn about the park’s 200 miles of trails, alpine history and “mountains of the imagination.”
After setting up camp together, we’ll sleep under the constellations in tents for four nights at Canyon Campground inside Yellowstone National Park. High-quality camping gear will be provided to ensure a comfortable and authentic experience. Expect an impressive menu of fireside cuisine–it won’t be wieners on a stick and a can of cowboy beans (though, those are great too).
The highlight of this itinerary is the horseback ride up into the Absaroka Mountains and an al fresco lunch overlooking Paradise Valley. Later, we will visit the local hot spring where we can soak our muscles after a week of big-sky outdoor exploration. We know, we had you at “hot spring.”
