This picturesque tour includes visits to America’s first national park, Yellowstone, as well as Badlands National Park and the impressive Grand Teton National Park. The tour begins in Rapid City, South Dakota, where you are well-positioned to see Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore, and the Crazy Horse Memorial. Continue into Wyoming, the land of the American cowboy, where you have an opportunity to visit a ranch and to meet some cowboys firsthand, followed by a rodeo; an institution of the American West. Travel to Yellowstone National Park and see all of the highlights including Mammoth Hot Springs, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and Old Faithful Geyser. The scenery and large amount of bison, as well as other wildlife, is certainly a highlight of our time here. Continue on to Jackson Hole and spend 3-nights in a centrally-located cabin-like lodging. From Jackson Hole visit the spectacular Grand Tetons National Park and enjoy a rafting float trip on the Snake River. This trip incorporates many features of the American West – and is both scenic and full of adventure.
