Be part of a unique wilderness expedition through Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole
Here, in a remote corner of Wyoming, was where it all began. Home to wolves, grizzlies and the densest concentration of geysers on the planet, Yellowstone was not just America’s, but the whole world’s very first national park. Join us on this special expedition as we tour the highlights of the park – Old Faithful, the Fountain Paint Pots and Yellowstone’s own Grand Canyon – before heading deeper into the wilderness for a full day of hiking. Unlike many tours, this trip also takes in the natural wonders of nearby Grand Teton National Park. Camp on secluded Grassy Island, explore Jackson Lake by kayak and float down the Snake River as eagles swoop in the air above. Designed so you have enough time to get under the skin of each place, this adventure is truly a walk (and a paddle) on the wild side.
Warning - this is a new trip for us!
While we have thoroughly researched this area to put together this trip, it still must be remembered that this is a relatively new trip for us. To be frank, we expect some things to go wrong. When we head to new destinations, we usually find there are more pleasant surprises in store than unpleasant ones, but the warning is sincere. If it concerns you then we recommend that you wait for a year until we get any bugs ironed out.
Yellowstone is one of the world’s greatest and oldest national parks, but visitors often just drive to its hotspots. This trip gets you out into the middle of the wilderness – explore it up close and on foot on a choice of trails past waterfalls, canyons and geysers
Get a truly wild wilderness camping experience – spend two nights at a private campsite on an island in the middle of Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park
Don’t miss out on the stunning landscape of Grand Teton like the majority of travellers who just pass through. This trip takes you into its remote heart, to kayak around Jackson Lake and hike away from well-trodden trails
Challenge yourself with active days hiking and kayaking, then savour the reward of an effortless float down the Snake River, watching the mountains go by and animals graze along the shore
This trip spends two nights camping in the wilderness without showers and permanent toilets. This lack of facilities is more than made up for by the beautiful surroundings and isolation from other people.
To reach wild spots for camping, transportation is partly by kayak. While you don't have to be an expert kayaker, a reasonable level of fitness and comfort on water is suggested.
Sleeping out in nature can get cold overnight, so be prepared for low temperatures – be sure to pack lots of warm clothing.
Yellowstone National Park is filled with roaming wildlife and so a great place to spot animals – but this means they can also wander into campsites at night. So stay aware and follow your leader, who’ll provide instructions on animal-proofing sites.

I traveled with seasoned Intrepid travelers, all of them having traveled to worldwide destinations with your company. They were great companions and our adventure was awesome! It was beyond my expectations and I would never hesitate when my next opportunity comes up!!

This was a new trip and one I would recommend continued. But, I found too short for the activities/wildlife/scenery covered. Wild life viewing etc. takes time with each encounter a captivating experience each time. I felt rushed when walking around the many hot springs and geysers where I would have appreciated time to just absorb the stunning beauty of the oft multi-coloured scene spreading before me. All-in-all a most enjoyable highly variable trip to Yellowstone and Teton National Parks. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is fit and enjoys the outdoors. Note: our planned hike up Mount Washburn was sadly cancelled due to an horrendous thunder storm with hail on reaching the start point....!
