Explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks with expert guides

9 days

from £2,995pp (excluding flights)

Explore the wonders of Yellowstone National Park with a local guide and the far less visited Grand Teton National Park. This holiday is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.

  • View the geysers, hot springs and mud pools that make up part of the Yellowstone National Park
  • Explore the wilderness of Yellowstone with a local guide in search of moose, elk and black bears
  • Float down the Snake River below Americas quintessential mountains, the Grand Teton range
  • Take part in any number of outdoor activities on offer here in this visually stunning area
  • Extend your holiday and drive north to Glacier National Park for some fabulous hiking and wildlife viewing

Begin this journey travelling independently through Yellowstone National Park, famous for the steaming thermal pools, bubbling mud volcanoes, and of course Old Faithful Geyser that has been shooting a majestic plume of steam and water in the air since before records began. This national park has vast open spaces of wilderness, a fantastic place for wildlife including wolves and bears. Explore the National Park for a full day with a local guide who can interpret the wildlife and geothermal features as well as take you from the crowds and show the hidden secrets.

Grand Teton National Park is far less visited than its neighbour, home to the mighty snow-capped Teton mountain range and wildlife such as moose, elk, beaver and black bears. A fantastic way to view the iconic Grand Teton range is by boat floating down the Snake River, a truly memorable experience. This area offers the outdoor enthusiast an endless list of activities from hiking, climbing, fishing, canoeing, biking and riding

Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872 by Ulysses S. Grant, was the first national park in the world and home to the majority of the world's geysers. The diversity found in these 3,500 square miles is amazing and ranges in both geology and wildlife. The park is made up of many lakes, canyons, rivers and mountain ranges. Amongst these is Yellowstone Lake; one of the largest high-altitude lakes in North America and Old Faithful the most famous geothermal feature in the world. It is also home to 1,700 species of trees and plants and hundreds of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles.

Sue Grimwood, Travel Expert

"It was tremendously helpful to be able to speak to someone who had been to Antarctica before - Sue had been on the ship we had booked, so was able to give us some very useful information. We felt that at every stage of the booking process that we were in safe hands. "

""I was uncharacteristically worried about this trip - neurotic some might say - and I was given 110% support and help with everything. I had been disappointed by not being able to get a space on the 2014 trip and so Sue was stuck with me for 2 years - a testament to her patience and professionalism. I was confident in Sue - she knows Antarctica and speaks from experience, that is worth a huge amount. Emails, which I would send were responded to almost immediately.""
