This is the Wild West. The land of bison, ranches and sprawling glacier valleys. But you don’t have to be a cowboy to enjoy it. After all, we love our elegant hotels, afternoons at the pool and ranch-to-table meals. And most of all, we love our vast wildernesses, deep forests and towering mountains. This country can be as wild as you can imagine and as indulgent as you want. Discover Bozeman, Jackson and two national parks—the Wild West without compromises.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations & Service Standards

On this trip we spend one night at Jackson Lake Lodge. While this accommodation reflects the natural surroundings of the national park and provides unparalleled access to the best activities in the area, it is simpler than typical Backroads lodging. The lodge has basic guest rooms that are not equipped with televisions or air-conditioning. Overall, the service standards can seem slow and casual when compared with the hospitality found on other Backroads trips. Please note that internet and cell phone service are extremely limited throughout the parks.

Interpretive Guides & Hiking without Your Leaders

The National Park Service limits the size of all groups and Grand Teton National Park doesn't permit guided hiking. Accordingly, in Yellowstone National Park you'll bike and hike in small groups with Backroads leaders. In Grand Teton National Park, you'll bike in small groups with Backroads leaders. If you choose to hike in Grant Teton National Park, you'll hike without Backroads leaders or local guides, but your leaders will provide pre-walk briefings, maps and directions. We appreciate your cooperation with park regulations.
