Your adventure to some of America’s most beautiful National Parks begins today as you travel to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and meet up with the rest of the delegation before travelling into Grand Teton National Park.
Grand Teton National Park is a pristine ecosystem where most of the species of flora and fauna that have existed since prehistoric times can still be found throughout the park. It’s a popular destination for hiking, fishing, mountaineering, and all sorts of outdoor activities! Mormon Row, Snake River Overlook, and Oxbow Bend are three of the most iconic spots in Grand Teton National Park. We’ll have an opportunity to visit all three as well as take a hike around Lake Jenny and up to Inspiration Point.
In the morning we’ll visit the Laurence S. Rockefeller Reserve Center to learn about wildlife and conservation in the Teton area. Later in the day we’ll travel north to Yellowstone National Park, America’s first National Park, and visit the Midway Geyser Basin, Grand Prismatic Spring, and Fairy Falls.
We’ll kickstart our first full day in Yellowstone by visiting the most famous geyser in the world- Old Faithful, and learning about Yellowstone’s unique and volatile geothermal landscape by taking a class on seismology and geology.
In the morning we will see Mammoth Hot Springs and the beautiful Lamar Valley to see some of Yellowstone’s most popular residents- the American Bison. Later we’ll go horseback riding through the park and enjoy a cookout picnic dinner.
Today we’re going to head into Montana towards Glacier National Park, close to the border with Canada. The park encompasses over 1 million acres and is home to some of the most pristine and breathtaking landscapes in North America, along with some of the largest glaciers in the lower 48 states. On our first day at the park we’ll take part in a conservation volunteer activity to help repair trails that have been damaged over time by visitors to the park.
Glacier National Park is home to a number of beautiful Alpine lakes, and we’ll have an opportunity to go boating on them as well as hike around them to view not only the terrain, but hopefully spot some local fauna such as moose and mountain goat.
Enjoy a scenic drive along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the only road that traverses the park, crossing the Continental Divide through Logan Pass. Later we’ll hike the Trail of Cedars, a raised path through a forest of ancient western cedars and western hemlocks.
Get your paddles ready as we go whitewater rafting within Glacier National Park! Later we’ll visit the quaint town of Whitefish, Montana where we’ll reflect on our trip out west and have a farewell dinner.
Depart for home after visiting three of America’s most majestic National Parks!
