Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Arrive Salt Lake City
Saddle up for a Wild West family adventure starting with a relaxing afternoon together in small-town Salt Lake City before meeting your travel buckeroos for a rootin' tootin' evening Kick-off Party with your Travel Director.

Day 2 Salt Lake City – Montpelier – Jackson
Put on your cowboy hats, pull up your boots and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime. Follow trails blazed by rugged mountain men centuries ago, stopping at the Oregon Trail Center in Montpelier to get a glimpse into the thrills and challenges of the Old Trail. Enjoy lunch in a covered wagon before travelling to the Old West town of Jackson. Walk through the town's famous landmark arch of tangled elk antlers and step back in time as you explore the Town Square with its Western boardwalks, craft boutiques and ice cream shops-all surrounded by the majestic Rockies. This evening, take a wagon ride out to the river for a rib-stickin' Chuckwagon Regional Dinner. (Breakfast)

Day 3 Jackson – Grand Teton National Park – 320 Guest Ranch
Rise early if you'd like to rollick down the Snake River on a scenic optional wilderness float trip (seasonal). Later, discover dramatic Grand Teton National Park. Travel onward to Montana's Big Sky Country and settle in for big 'Family Fun' fun at your 'Stay with a Story', an 1898 homestead, where you'll feast on a classic Western dinner. (Breakfast)

Day 4 320 Guest Ranch – Yellowstone National Park (2 Nights)
Giddy up cowboys and cowgirls. There are many fun choices on the ranch this morning. Join a whitewater rafting trip down the Gallatin River or saddle up and ride with a real-life horse wrangler in the Montana wilderness. After lunch at the ranch, visit The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone where you'll 'Make a Difference' by contributing to its conservation programmes. Tonight, we stay inside the UNESCO-listed Yellowstone National Park, where each lodge has its own unique setting and atmosphere. (Breakfast)

Day 5 Yellowstone National Park Sightseeing
Discover Yellowstone's astounding wonders-the thundering Yellowstone Falls, brilliantly coloured hot springs, bubbling mud pools and hissing steam vents. The highlight is a visit to Old Faithful, which has been spouting steam water regularly for thousands of years. Do you know how to locate a bear or tell what it's been eating? Enjoy a stroll around the boardwalks of Yellowstone and learn the answer, plus even more cool facts about the park's abundance of wildlife. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 6 Yellowstone National Park – Cody – Sheridan
Tip your Stetson to "Buffalo Bill" in his hometown of Cody and get a glimpse into the Spirit of the American West at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Delve into culture of the cowboy, the role of the firearm in the early days and the culture and art of the Plains Indians. (Breakfast)

Day 7 Sheridan – Keystone – Rapid City (2 Nights)
After a hearty breakfast, your journey continues on to South Dakota and the Crazy Horse Memorial. Gaze at the towering tribute to legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse being carved into the mountain and learn how your visit 'Makes a Difference' by preserving the culture of his people. The evening is yours to explore in Rapid City. Or consider an optional trip to the Mount Rushmore Lighting Ceremony, a chance to see one of America's most famous landmarks from a different perspective.
