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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
