Day 1: Arrive in Jackson, Wyoming

Welcome to the historic town of Jackson, Wyoming, where fur trappers and frontiersmen once gathered. Surrounded by towering mountain ranges and the meandering Snake River, Jackson is your gateway to discovering Yellowstone National Park. We’ll have a group meeting at 6 pm, followed by a welcome dinner. Afterward, the evening is all yours to explore the town’s nightlife. Feel free to wander the plaza or maybe head to the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for a drink.

Day 2: Grand Teton National Park

After breakfast, embark on a day exploring Grand Teton National Park, one of the most stunning places in Wyoming. The Grand Teton mountain range rises above a scene rich with abundant wildlife and pristine lakes. Take a walk to Inspiration Point for outstanding views or enjoy a scenic stroll around the glacially carved Jenny Lake and gaze up in awe at the surrounding landscape. Have a picnic, maybe spot a moose or even a grizzly bear, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place. Other wildlife you might find include elk, beavers, and black bears, so keep your eyes peeled! We’ll continue to view sites for buffalo and antelope herds along the Gros Ventre River and Antelope Flats.

Day 3: National Museum of Wildlife Art

This morning, visit the fascinating artworks of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Featuring work by famed artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Andy Warhol, the museum’s collection chronicles the history of wildlife in art. From the present back to 2500 BC. You’ll have the rest of the day free to explore Jackson – perhaps wander among the many shops or opt for an exciting whitewater rafting adventure on the Snake River.

    Day 4: Yellowstone National Park

    An early start sees us on the road to the crown jewel of the American national parks, where you’ll spend the full-day exploring with your expert guide. Yellowstone is the country’s first national park and is a mountain wilderness, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of buffalo and elk. Watch as Old Faithful sprays over 4000 gallons (14,000 liters) of boiling water into the air, then be hypnotized from the astonishing colors of the Grand Prismatic Pool. Other highlights include Yellowstone Canyon with its geysers along the north and south loop and the tranquil Yellowstone Lake.

        Duration: Walks options range from easy to moderate and 2 to 5 miles (3 to 8 km) in length.

        Day 5: Yellowstone National Park

        It’s another early morning for a fascinating day with a local wolf-tracking expert. There is no better place than Yellowstone to see these magnificent animals in the wild. We meet up with an experienced naturalist guide who tracks the movements and behavior of Yellowstone wildlife almost daily and knows the best places to find the animals. There will be top-of-the-line binoculars and high-powered spotting scopes on board, so no one will miss out on seeing these creatures close up.

              This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
