WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This summer adventure in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons provided a spectacular opportunity to marvel at the amazing landscapes and incredible wildlife offered in both parks. I became lost in the beauty of every moment. A wondrous trip!

Can't say enough about what a wonderful experience this was for myself and my daughter. The sights, expected and unexpected. We tend to forget what a treasure our National Parks provide for us. I am truly grateful for this opportunity.

Itinerary

Day 1 — Bozeman, Montana to 320 Ranch

Depart mid-day from Bozeman’s airport and head west to the Lewis and Clark caverns. At the caverns, explore a two-mile underground passage that winds through magnificent limestone chambers filled with stalagmites, stalactites, and cave coral. Emerging from your cave exploration, travel south into the beautiful, narrow Gallatin Canyon, setting for much of the film A River Runs Through It. This evening settle into your room at the 320 Ranch. A reception and dinner welcomes your arrival. (R,D)

Day 2 — Exploring Big Sky Country

Today you and your family have a full day to enjoy Big Sky Country and 320 Ranch, where you can choose from a variety of activities. Horseback riding lessons are offered for beginners while riding pros can take a longer ride through the Montana wilderness. You can also learn how to fly-fish for trout on the ranch’s private, stocked trout pond before testing your skills on the Blue Ribbon Gallatin River.*  For those who prefer to stay grounded, there are hiking trails on the property from the main lodge to picturesque alpine meadows. (B,L,D)
