A Geothermal Adventure Through Yellowstone National Park

6 days & 5 nights, Private Journey

Grand Teton National Park & Yellowstone National Park

Discover the wonders of Yellowstone National Park, the first national park in the world, on this outdoor adventure. Begin your travels in the Wild West town of Jackson before embarking on an exploration of the magnificent Teton Range in Grand Teton National Park. Then it’s on to Yellowstone, which was declared a national park in 1872 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site soon after. With your naturalist guide, see the volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pots and other geothermal features of the park. Then search the wild landscapes for some of the park’s 67 types of mammals and 330 species of birds. End your journey with one night of absolute luxury at Amangani in Jackson.

  • Day 1
    Arrive Jackson

    Welcome to Jackson, Wyoming, the gateway to the Yellowstone National Park. As soon as you arrive into town you’ll be met by your driver and whisked away to the Rusty Parrot for the evening. Relax and take in the cool mountain air before your adventure begins tomorrow.

  • Day 2
    To Grand Teton National Park

    Fuel up at breakfast before departing Jackson with your private guide. Your luxury safari vehicle for the next few days offers a comfortable, spacious interior with oversized windows and three roof hatches that allow you to get a superior and unobstructed view of the incredible surroundings. Your tour also includes state of the art optics technology including binoculars, tripods and long-range scopes allowing for a more intimate and enjoyable wildlife viewing opportunities. Grand Teton National Park includes the major peaks of the Teton Range, the tallest of which naturally bears the name, Grand Teton. The human history at Grand Teton extends some 11,000 years. The rocks, however, date back as far as 2.7 billion years, some of the oldest in the United States. Accompanied by an expert biologist guide, explore the unspoiled ecosystem and visit some of the best viewing spots for elk, moose, big-horn sheep, bison, mule deer, foxes and eagles. Following this experience, settle in at Turpin Meadow Ranch, which is located in the heart of the Tetons. Steeped in history, this ranch has been operating on a U.S. Forest Service Resort Permit since 1932, making it one of the oldest continuously operating ranches in the West. For dinner tonight, we recommend a “ranch-to-table” experience in the historic dining room where sustainable proteins are paired alongside locally sourced produce in a simple yet elegant setting.

  • Day 3
    To Yellowstone

    Giddy up and slap on your chaps as this morning you will be touring on horseback with your guide from Turpin Meadow Ranch. Surrounded by the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Teton Wilderness, Turpin has millions of acres and hundreds of miles of trails to explore. Enjoy a two-hour morning ride along the Buffalo Fork River with the majestic Tetons as the backdrop. After your morning ride has concluded you will continue exploring Grand Teton National Park with your private guide. Not only will you observe wildlife in their native habitat, but you will also gain a greater understanding of these residents by learning about their springtime mating rituals or summer nesting rituals. Between yesterday’s discussion of ancient human survival techniques and your observations of the animals today, you may be struck by the symbiotic ways in which they lived harmoniously together — and by the similar behaviors they practiced to survive in this formidable wilderness. Stop at one of the most visually arresting sites in the Tetons for a picnic lunch before resuming your journey to the southern end of Yellowstone National Park. Depending on your accommodations, this evening, we suggest dinner at the historic Lake Yellowstone Hotel, recently renovated and added to the National Register of Historic Places, or the Old Faithful Inn, which was built at the turn of the 20th century with local logs and stone, and considered the largest log structure in the world. Settle in for the night and enjoy a well-deserved rest.

  • Day 4
    Yellowstone

    Today is the day of the geysers! Begin your morning with a tour of the Upper Geyser Basin and the Old Faithful Basin. Yellowstone contains sixty percent of the world’s geysers and the Upper Geyser Basin is home to the largest amount of them, with Old Faithful being by far the most famous and with the most impressive and most frequent eruptions. Its name is derived from the frequency of eruptions that are timed so exactly that your guide will be able to pinpoint within ten minutes when an eruption will occur. You will also visit the Grand Prismatic Spring, the largest hot spring in the United States, named for its striking coloration. The vivid colors are the result of pigmented bacteria that survive the extreme temperatures found in the mineral-rich waters. While you will notice many visitors staking claim and views from ground level, your guide will escort you on a lesser-known path from which you may enjoy stunning views away from the crowds. From here, make your way to the Fountain Paint Pot, where the oxidated states of iron in the mud create stunning arrays of colors. Enjoy stunning views and lesser-known access to the geothermal activity, along with a picnic lunch before returning to your hotel for the evening.

  • Day 5
    To Jackson

    Your final day with your private guide begins with a journey to the Norris Geyser Basin, Yellowstone’s hottest, oldest, and most volatile geothermal attraction with the highest recorded temperature in the park. Continue east on a wildlife expedition in Hayden Valley. You will glimpse the native wildlife and perhaps one of the rare bird species in the serene surroundings. Before long, you are off to admire the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Stop to enjoy a picnic lunch at the best vantage point and marvel at the striations and layers of rock within this magnificent canyon. As you drive south and exit the park, make your way up Signal Mountain, a popular black bear habitat. At the summit, enjoy stunning panoramic views of the park and surrounding valley. Later, return to Jackson for your final evening spent at the luxurious Amangani Resort. We recommend a treatment at their award-winning spa — a perfect way to conclude your Yellowstone Adventure.
