Here, in a remote corner of Wyoming, was where it all began. Home to wolves, grizzlies and the densest concentration of geysers on the planet, Yellowstone was not just America’s, but the whole world’s very first national park. Join us on this special expedition as we tour the highlights of the park – Old Faithful, the Fountain Paint Pots and Yellowstone’s own Grand Canyon – before heading deeper into the wilderness for a full day of hiking. Unlike many tours, this trip also takes in the natural wonders of nearby Grand Teton National Park. Camp on secluded Grassy Island, explore Jackson Lake by kayak and float down the Snake River as eagles swoop in the air above. Designed so you have enough time to get under the skin of each place, this adventure is truly a walk (and a paddle) on the wild side. Warning - this is a new trip for us! While we have thoroughly researched this area to put together this trip, it still must be remembered that this is a relatively new trip for us. To be frank, we expect some things to go wrong. When we head to new destinations, we usually find there are more pleasant surprises in store than unpleasant ones, but the warning is sincere. If it concerns you then we recommend that you wait for a year until we get any bugs ironed out.

Highlights

Yellowstone is one of the world’s greatest and oldest national parks, but visitors often just drive to its hotspots. This trip gets you out into the middle of the wilderness – explore it up close and on foot on a choice of trails past waterfalls, canyons and geysers

Get a truly wild wilderness camping experience – spend two nights at a private campsite on an island in the middle of Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park

Don’t miss out on the stunning landscape of Grand Teton like the majority of travellers who just pass through. This trip takes you into its remote heart, to kayak around Jackson Lake and hike away from well-trodden trails

Challenge yourself with active days hiking and kayaking, then savour the reward of an effortless float down the Snake River, watching the mountains go by and animals graze along the shore
