Extraordinary Geysers, Peaks, Lakes & Wildlife

Invite the family to hike, explore, bike and camp in an incredible piece of Wyoming. With majestic sawtooth mountains. Snowcaps above, incredible wildflowers and glacial lakes below.  With geysers and turquoise hot springs. Waterfalls, bison and bears. But don't think for a second you'll be able to fathom how Mother Nature did it.

Yellowstone and Tetons Multisport Tour Map

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Welcome to the Rockies! | Bike beneath the Teton Range's jagged peaks, pedaling through Jackson into Grand Teton National Park | Whether you're up for 4 miles or 14, there are gorgeous hikes—and a scenic boat ride—to show off this grandest of parks, a paradise of flower-strewn meadows, shimmering lakes, thick forests and awe-inspiring mountains.

Day 3 Bike along Jackson Lake to the northern edge of Grand Teton National Park, then get ready for Yellowstone, the world's first national park and home to some of Earth's most extraordinary geothermal wonders | Your camp crew whips up a bit of culinary magic and dinner is served al fresco | Watch the sky for shooting stars.

Day 4 Hike to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the park's most dramatic feature, where waterfalls cascade over pastel-colored cliffs | Open meadows and stands of lodgepole pine lead to the canyon rim and Inspiration Point, with a breathtaking look deep into the gorge | Witness wondrous wildlife, from elk to eagles.

Day 5 Gaze at bubbling mud pots, spouting geysers and steaming vents in Yellowstone | Has it been 91 minutes? Watch as Old Faithful shoots into action, projecting thousands of gallons of water more than 100 feet into the air | As you bike along Firehole River, savor the sights, sounds and smells of this strange wonderland.

This trip exceeded all of my expectations! Our leaders were amazing young people who loved life and adventure. They made sure our trip ran smoothly at all times, even dealing with extreme weather conditions! Our food was plentiful and delicious, the tents were clean and dry and our equipment was ready to go and in perfect condition. My family had an amazing trip and I can't wait until we can have another adventure with Backroads!

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 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.

Tents & Sleeping Essentials

Our spacious dome tents comfortably accommodate two adults plus luggage. Cots with an extra-thick inflatable sleeping pad, sleeping bag and sleep sheet are all provided. Backroads does not supply pillows, so please bring your own. No lighting is provided in your tent, so a small flashlight is essential.

Restroom Facilities

Restroom facilities are available at each campground. The restroom floors can be wet, so be sure to bring flip-flops! We also recommend bringing a hanging toiletry bag since space is limited and surfaces are wet. Be advised that outlets and mirrors are few. Backroads does not supply towels, so please be sure to pack your own.

Attire

Comfortable, casual attire and footwear is strongly recommended—leave those heels or imported Italian leather loafers at home! Also be sure to bring along a few warm layers for the cooler evenings.

Why Travel with Backroads in Yellowstone and Tetons

Just as Faithful (Not Quite So Old)

After exploring these two extraordinary national parks for 37 years, we know quite a lot about how the mountain ranges were created, where the wildlife wanders and when Old Faithful and other, lesser-known geysers are likely to erupt. Linda Cassell, our Regional Manager, has spent nearly three decades designing and managing trips here. She uses her deep knowledge and vast network of local connections to create an active camping experience you'll never forget.

More Leaders to Support You

On our Yellowstone and Tetons trips we have an extra leader supporting you along the road and trail—for a total of three, compared to the industry standard two. So we can be in more places at once, giving personal attention to guests traveling at their own pace. Here's more on our Trip Leaders.

No One Else Camps Like This

Only Backroads offers our style of Deluxe Camping in Yellowstone and Tetons. Whether you're a first-timer or an old pro, you'll love how we immerse you in spectacular surroundings—and look after all the chores. Enjoy a great meal by the fire with interesting companions, then a peaceful night on your comfortable cot. Here's more on how we do the great outdoors.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Yellowstone and Tetons trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.

Kids Who Aren't Kids Anymore

Only Backroads offers active trips in Yellowstone and Tetons designed for families with older teens and 20-somethings. Our Family Breakaway trips are aimed at you and the amazingly grownup members of your clan—whether they're almost high school grads, already in college or further along. Find out more in this blog post.

The Best Leaders in Yellowstone and Tetons

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Yellowstone and Tetons, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Yellowstone and Tetons you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

We Were Born Here (in 1979)

Backroads has been inviting active travelers to explore our own backyard since Jimmy Carter was in the White House. We offer more trips than anyone else in Yellowstone and Tetons, and we've spent more years finding the best ones. What keeps it real is having a consistent vision and the same passionately committed leadership for nearly four decades.

We Invented the Multisport Trip

After 30 years of creating Backroads Multisport Adventures, our trip designers know how to blend the perfect balance of biking and hiking with other activities to showcase the best of a region. And then they arrange the seamless transitions that would be so hard to orchestrate on your own—adding dimensions to your trip that are exciting, inspiring and just plain fun.

We've Set the Standard

For nearly four decades we've worked to earn and maintain our right to call Backroads the world's #1 active travel company. In pursuing that vision on behalf of our guests, we believe we've set the standard for our industry—captured in the Backroads Quality Guide, which clearly sets out the benchmarks of excellence, choice and support that we live by

Signature Backroads Picnics

Guests rave about our picnic spreads. Enjoy a welcome break in a scenic spot, or a quick refuel stop if you don't want to lose momentum. And because we have two vans, one can host lunch while the other is out providing support along the route.
