Wyoming's Yellowstone & Tetons & Montana's Big Sky Multi-Adventure Tour

National Park Adventure from Bozeman to Jackson

Southwest Montana is Big Sky Country. Soak up its grandeur on horseback and while rafting the Gallatin River. Yellowstone is one of a kind. Geysers really do erupt hourly. Sulfur-scented hot springs glimmer like jewels. Bison and elk are as common as tourists. The Tetons. Majestic peaks above, meadows and glacial lakes below. From Bozeman to Jackson, this is the American West at its finest.

Accommodations & Service Standards

Canyon Lodge and Jackson Lake Lodge are fairly rustic national park lodges that reflect the natural surroundings of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. While these historic hotels offer simpler accommodations than the typical Backroads property, they provide unparalleled access to the best riding and hiking in the region. Please note that the guest rooms are not equipped with televisions or air-conditioning.

Generally speaking, service in the national parks can seem laid-back when compared with the high standards of service found on other Backroads trips.

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 hike and bike in small groups with Backroads leaders. In Grand Teton National Park you'll bike in small groups with Backroads leaders, however you'll hike without Backroads leaders or local guides. Your leaders will provide pre-walk briefings, maps and directions. We appreciate your cooperation with the park's regulations.
