Yellowstone Adventure Itinerary

Backpack in Yellowstone National Park

Set your sights upon Yellowstone’s spectacular Rocky Mountains during a four-day backpacking trip. Avoiding the crowds and heading into more secluded territory, we’ll wander past some of the more than 500 geysers scattered throughout America’s first national park—the largest concentration of active geysers anywhere in the world! This area also boasts tremendous biodiversity, and it’s likely you’ll spot some of its famous wildlife on your hike. Ancient violent volcanic activity shaped these mountains into the gorgeous and unique landscape they are today.

Canoe on Yellowstone, Shoshone, and Lewis lakes

Spend three days exploring the uncrowded waters of Yellowstone, Shoshone, and Lewis lakes. If you look hard enough, you may be able to spot some river otters. At night, the lack of light pollution allows the stars to shine brighter than you’ve ever seen them!

 

Whitewater Raft the Snake and Gallatin rivers

Ride the rapids of the most action-packed river around! Snowmelt in late spring helps form the “Mad Mile,” an insanely fun section of class 4 rapids. (Fun fact: Part of the movie A River Runs Through It was filmed on this scenic river!) Afterward, get a unique aerial view of the Gallatin as you zoom across the water on a zipline. Finish off your trip with a jaunt down an eight-mile section of Snake River, which is famous for some of the best rapids in the entire United States and offers unbeatable views as it meanders through Grand Teton National Park.

Summit Hike in Grand Teton National Park

Set your sights upon a stunning subalpine lake in Grand Teton National Park. Amphitheater Lake lies at 9,698 feet, and you’ll pass through a conifer forest with countless views of surrounding peaks during your ascent, like the famous Grand Teton, Disappointment Peak, Mount Owen, and Teewinot Mountain. Bonus: You’ll get uninhibited views of Bradley and Taggart lakes—where you did your day hike—and miles of green, rolling prairie lands. Keep your eyes peeled for black bear in the distance, mule deer, or grouse!
