Day 3-4: Yellowstone National Park

Today visit Yellowstone National Park, the world's first national park and home to a large variety of wildlife including Grizzly Bears, wolves, bison and elk. This park is so large that its boundaries cross into three states. Most of the park sits in Wyoming, but parts of the reserve extend into Idaho and Montana. Yellowstone has one of the highest concentrations of geothermal activity on the planet. Herds of bison roam amongst the erupting geysers and steam rises from the various rivers running through the park. A fire in the 1980s destroyed much of the park, but it has recovered to the extent that it is now considered a living monument to nature's power of regeneration.See Old Faithful bubbling and erupting for an authentic Yellowstone experience. This spectacle is one of the main reasons the park was established in 1872 as America's first national park - an idea which has since spread nationwide. The rest of the day is free for further exploration and by following the boardwalk around the hot pools and scorched earth you'll gain a true understanding of what makes Yellowstone such an incredible place. Being primarily a driving national park, your tour leader will be on hand to drive you to some of the more out of the way places.

Meals Included: Meals paid locally


Day 5-7: Parade Rest Guest Ranch

Experience a true taste of the American West at Paradise Rest Ranch! A year older than the town of Yellowstone itself, this classic ranch sits on rich history – it was originally part of the Bannock Indian Trail, a 200-mile stretch used by the Bannock Indians to make their way to the rich buffalo hunting grounds in the surrounding area. You’ll get to experience life here in true wild west style – on horseback, of course! Follow trails that wind through meadows to incredible vistas and hidden mountain lakes. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including moose, elk, deer, bears, and the occasional bison. Delicious, hearty meals are served daily to keep your energy levels up, and there are plenty of opportunities to try out some fly-fishing and mountain biking, all while enjoying the stunning Montana scenery.
