Tackled the class II & III rapids of the Snake River? If you’ve been on Austin Adventure’s Yellowstone & Grand Teton Vacations, chances are your answer is yes!

Worth every penny

"Trip was extremely well organized from start to finish. All accommodation were above my expectations. Most food options were very good, had a fantastic meal at the Jackson Lake Lodge. The planned activities were amazing and we all had a lot of fun. We had enough time after our planned activities to relax before the meal. 100% would recommend for anyone who wants to see the best of Yellowstone.

Could Not Have Asked for a Better Experience!

"This was our first group trip and we didn't know what to expect. It exceeded anything we could have imagined in terms of the guides and the entire smooth process. Derek and Moose (Michael) are top notch. They were knowledgeable, anticipated our needs, great ambassadors for the area and Austin Adventures. They were attentive and the little touches like refreshments and snacks, in addition to the excellent lunches, were much appreciated. The days were well planned out; interesting and thoroughly enjoyable!

TETONS, YELLOWSTONE, GLACIER

"The trip was nothing short of fantastic! The sights were amazing. They were everything that we'd hope for and then some. Not having to deal with the logistics of things was a real luxury. The guides knew how to avoid the crowds as best as possible and were always there to help. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and hard working. We were surprised and amazed by the wonderful lunches that seemed to appear out of nowhere. From forest settings, mountain views or on the beach, we never went hungry. Restaurants were top notch as well. We were also fortunate in that we were a small group of 5 and everybody got along well with each other. It was like traveling with family.

Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier trip - FANTASTIC! The guides are AWESOME!!!!

"We loved our trip to Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier. The views were fantastic. But what made our trip extra special were the guides and other members of our group. The guides Nicole and Ryan (better known as cornbread) went above and beyond what was expected. Both are very friendly and caring. Our lunches made by Nicole were exceptional, Ryan's cornbread was how he obtained his nickname by our entire group. The resorts and restaurants picked out where top notch. Only exception for meals was the Canyon Lodge. The dinner and breakfast were really bad!
The members of our group were so much fun.
They guides really went above when my husband couldn't do some of the tougher hikes. One would hike a shorter distance with him so he was included.
Can't say enough great things about the trip!!!

The Family Didn't Want to Come Home!

"This vacation was nothing short of EPIC. It was well-planned and efficient, with everything running smoothly. There was a great variety of activity that kept the whole family engaged (ages 9-70+). The food was great, and meals accommodated all dietary needs, including vegan. The views and the experiences are things we will be talking about for many years to come - whitewater rafting, Old Faithful, moose and bison galore, Artist Point, Wapiti Trail, and biking in the shadows of the Grand Tetons. Every picture I took on my phone looks like a postcard!

It was our magnificent guides, Rhet and Bryson, that made it all happen. This was concierge service at its finest! These gentlemen joyful engaged the whole family, especially the kids. They recognized and addressed needs even before we expressed them. They kept us safe and entertained at every step. They adjusted our itinerary based on our interests and energy levels. By the end of the trip, we were prepared to adopt them as permanent members of the family.

Austin Adventures Should Be Awesome Adventures

"We took the Grand Teton -Yellowstone Family Adventure June 25-30, 2023. It was beyond incredible. A friend had recommended Austin Adventures after taking his family on the same trip a couple of years ago. He was super excited about how great the guides were and how wonderful it was for his whole family. It was far beyond our expectations. We had Dereck, Moose and Nicole as our guides and they went far beyond our expectations on every phase of the trip. What a team they were in interacting with our grandkids ranging in age from six to seventeen. They prepared outstanding lunches out on the trails and they gave us so many facts about the history, geology, nature and what to expect. We could never have had such an experience on our own. It was worth every penny of the cost. The lodging was outstanding, the meals were superb, the hikes were fantastic, the biking was just right for our group, and the rafting was incredible. They would stop so we could see wildlife, and they explained things such as what fur was left on the trees the animals rubbed against. They had the bikes sized right, and even saw…

They acquired an extra large helmet for my head, when the large didn’t fit on day one. The guides felt like part of our family. Several in our party of 12 balked at the white water rafting, but we trusted the guides and everyone went. They all loved it!! It went too fast is all I can say and we will never forget that as our best ever family vacation. read less

Both of our guides were kind, gracious and incredibly knowledgable! They truly went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way.

FAQs About Visiting Grand Teton

Do you recommend buying travel insurance?

As an Austin Adventures traveler, it’s highly recommended you take out travel insurance to cover the likes of travel delays, missed connections, medical expenses or injury, or lost baggage for your travel with us. Please head to our Travel Protection page for more in-depth information and our recommended insurance provider.

What's included on your North America trips?

Accommodation

We've spent years finding places to stay that are quaint, perfectly-located, and comfortable when we take you to the most amazing parts of North America. We offer a wide variety of accommodations on our trips ranging from locally run inns and first-class hotels to resorts, dude ranches and historic national park cabins. Accommodations are selected for their location, unique charm and history, and offer a true feel for the region. We strongly believe in the value of a good night's sleep and our accommodation reflects this. We also like to have somewhere comfortable to relax after the day's activities.

Transport

We're really focused on ensuring that we spend as little time as possible sitting in vehicles, and that we optimise your vacation for adventuring in the great outdoors. Our average driving time is just over two hours a day, and we make plenty of stops for bathroom breaks and sightseeing along the way. We use modern, comfortable 15-passenger vans for all of our transfers and a second van is added to most departures to provide more flexibility and more room to spread out while seeing the sights! Make no mistake - our trips are not typical bus tour vacation packages! Picture more of a road trip with family complete with good music, tasty snacks, and plenty of guide-supplied fun facts along the way to keep you entertained!

Meals

Just about all your meals are included when you travel with Austin Adventures in North America. We provide a wide variety of cuisine - breakfasts are typically eaten at your hotel on your own time in the morning before meeting up with the group. Lunches feature everything from elaborate picnics to roadside cafes to sandwiches trailside. Dinners are usually eaten at our hotel's dining room or a local restaurant with plenty of options to choose from. We easily cater to vegetarians, picky kids, and people with particular dietary needs. All our guides have food safety certificates and are well-practiced in the art of food prep and serving while on-the-move. You'll find the meals are a real highlight of your trip!

All Guiding Services

Each trip features two or three incredible guides and our average guest to guide ratio is 6:1. Our guests are often drawn to North America by the beautiful scenic landscapes, promise of wilderness and clean air - and there's no doubt you'll find all that, though what you may not be expecting is to forge real, genuine friendships with your fellow tripmates, including our wonderful guides. They're hands-down the BEST guides you'll ever come across.

Activities

Any activity described in our itinerary, such as hiking, rafting, horseback riding, kayaking and biking, are included in your trip cost. Our itineraries are pretty jam-packed to maximize our time spent exploring in these amazing places, and your guides will make it clear if there are additional activities available (at your expense).

How many people are there on each of our North America trips?

We get a real variety of people on our trips and they all seem to have one thing in common – a love of the outdoors! Our trips can accommodate up to 22 guests, depending on each departure. Our adult-only departures require a minimum age of 16 years and generally feature a mix of singles, couples and friends, and our family departures require a minimum age of 6 years to join (7 years on our Alaska Family Adventure) and are a great way to meet other like-minded families who like to get outside.
Please note child rates apply to children 12 years and under.

Do you charge a forced single supplement if I'm a solo traveller?

We welcome many solo travelers on our trips – in fact, we get so many solo travelers and they always say it’s a great way to travel alone, but not actually by themselves. You’ll have an incredible adventure sharing your experiences with other like-minded travelers, and the best part is we don't charge extra for solo travelers, providing you don’t mind sharing a room. However, for bookings within 90 days of your chosen departure, a forced single supplement will apply if there is no other guest of the same gender already booked to share with.

If you prefer not to share a room at all, you can upgrade to a single room, if one is available. 

If I book a trip with my children, will I be sharing a room with them?

Active Adventures & Austin Adventures family vacations are naturally about spending time with family and as such, most families opt to share rooms on our trips. At time of booking, families consisting of four guests with children aged 17 and under will be automatically assigned one shared room. However, the following alternative rooming allocations are available:

  • Families consisting of four guests with all children aged 13 and above are welcome to opt for additional rooms as per advertised double occupancy adult rates.
  • Families consisting of four guests with at least one child aged 12 and under are automatically assigned a shared room. However, families can opt to pay the adult rates for all guests in their family to have an additional room.
  • The same principles apply for families consisting of more than four guests.

Rooming preferences are subject to availability and must be communicated in writing at time of booking. Automatic assignments as per this policy will be applied in the absence of any specification provided by guests. Any request for additional rooms during trips will be at the guests’ own expense and subject to rates made available by the accommodation provider at the time. All minors (guests aged 17 and under) must be accompanied by at least one adult.

What if I need a special diet?

We’re accustomed to catering to the following special diets:

  • vegan (no meat or animal products)
  • vegetarian (no meat products)
  • pescatarian (vegetarian, and eat fish)
  • no red meat (eat chicken & fish)
  • no pork (eat chicken & fish)
  • gluten intolerant (no wheat, rye, barley or oats)
  • lactose intolerant (no dairy products)
  • picky kids (send us a list of what your child will eat and we'll make sure to have it!)
You will get the opportunity to specify your particular requirements when you fill in your travel wallet. If you have any other dietary requirements please let us know well in advance, via email or the online travel wallet.

 

How much luggage can I bring on the North America trips?

You are allowed one piece of luggage on your trip, plus a daypack. Your main piece of luggage should not exceed 50 pounds (23 kilograms) and can be anything from a duffle bag to a sports bag with wheels or a suitcase. You’ll also want a good quality backpack sized 25-30 liters (2000 cubic inches) to use throughout the days.

How much spending money should I bring and where do I get cash?

You'll be able to find a reliable ATM once you arrive to start your trip, within the township or at the airport you land in, as national park ATM locations are sparse at best. Aside from tips for your guides, you could bring $200 and go home with change though some people like to bring some cash to cover a round of drinks, a few souvenirs, and dinner on "night on your own", although you could just as easily use a credit card for these purchases too.

What are your recommended guide gratuity guidelines?

You will have 2-3 guides on your Austin Adventure (depending on group size) and we recommend $15-25 per day, per guest, per guide. Typically, gratuities are offered by check or cash in local currency on the final morning of the trip and can either be given to each guide individually or to one guide to be equally distributed. Most of our guides these days also accept gratuities via Venmo (please note this app does not work in Canada). All dining, housekeeping and activity tips are included in your trip price.
