Day 1: Jackson or Teton Village – Grand Teton – Yellowstone (L)
Your 2-day wilderness escape starts in the early morning in Wyoming with pickup from your Jackson or Teton Village area hotel. As you travel by coach among the towering peaks of Grand Teton National Park glowing in the gentle morning light, enjoy complimentary snacks and refreshments and keep your eyes peeled for moose, elk, bison, grizzlies, black bears, wolves, coyotes and eagles. Binoculars will be provided for optimal viewing.
Continue to nearby Yellowstone National Park, the first national park ever established, and see two of its many lovely waterfalls: the Upper Falls and Lower Falls. Take in views of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, a chasm on the Yellowstone River that cuts up to 1200 feet (366 m) deep. Savor a picnic lunch in this park teeming with animal and plant life as your guide shares facts about the geological and human forces that have shaped this area over thousands of years.
Spend the evening in Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley – often called the ‘American Serengeti’ – searching for more wildlife. It was here that bison were brought back from the brink of extinction in the early 1900s. Look for these great woolly beasts and herds of elk coming out for their evening meal. Afterward, cross just over the border into Montana and have your own hearty dinner (own expense) at a local restaurant to finish off your day of exploration before settling into your comfortable hotel room for the night.
Overnight: Hotel in West Yellowstone or Cooke City, Montana
Day 2: Yellowstone – Jackson or Teton Village
Head back to Yellowstone’s Lamar Valley this morning to search for bears and wolves. Wolves were successfully re-introduced to this area in the 1990s, and your chances of seeing one are high. Lamar Valley is also the best place in Yellowstone to spy a grizzly bear, so have your camera ready!
Spend the rest of the day taking short and easy hikes around some of the many geothermal features at Yellowstone created by volcanic activity. See famous Old Faithful’s massive eruption of water and the dramatic rock terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs.
Reminisce about the most memorable wildlife sightings from your small-group tour as you are driven from Yellowstone back to your hotel in the early evening.

It was one of the most memorable holidays for my son and I, great fellow passengers not to mention our Guide/Driver Mike, who was well informed, courteous and very likeable. We saw lots of wild life and the scenery was spectacular. I would recommend this trip to any wild life and scenery lovers without a doubt

This two day trip was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had! I had been to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks many times in the past, but this trip was like seeing them for the first time. Our guide, Evan, was awesome he was very personable, thoughtful, and professional. Furthermore, his knowledge of the parks and points of interest was amazing, and he must have bionic vision because he was able to spot wildlife that was nearly impossible to see, initially. In all my trips to Yellowstone and the Tetons, I have never seen as much wildlife as I saw on this trip. Seeing the Lamar Valley was a life changing experience, and we were privileged to see interactions between grizzlies and wolves that humans rarely see. I more than highly recommend this trip and Evan as your guide.
