      Sure, I own some hiking boots, they're even worn in, but they don't go on long trips. I like my creature comforts and I like to give a range of activities a go.

    #2087

    Grand Teton National Park is an almost pristine ecosystem with species of flora and fauna that have existed since prehistoric times. After meeting in Jackson, we’ll journey to the National Park and hop on bikes, getting our first views of the iconic mountain range close up, enjoying the winding paths as we pedal under the five peaks of the Cathedral Group. Once we’ve toured the park by wheels, we’ll enjoy a picnic lunch before driving up to Yellowstone National Park through its south entrance. This afternoon we’ll venture off onto a picturesque hike above Lake Yellowstone. The hike will take us to a high mountain meadow for a commanding view of the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake and the Absaroka Mountains in the distance. The loop trail ascends steeply, passing backcountry thermal features, then gradually descends through meadows & forest. Tonight we’ll stay at Grant Village, located in the southernmost corner of Yellowstone, Grant Village will allow for quick access to Grand Teton National Park and you’ll cherish the peace and quiet the secluded lodgings provide.

    This morning we’ll take a short drive east where we’ll begin with a walk alongside bubbling hot springs leading to the boardwalks around Upper Geyser Basin. The area is full of pools, springs and geysers and we’ll hopefully manage to catch an eruption of the famous Old Faithful geyser. After a picnic lunch, we’ll continue the exploration of this area including walks around Geyser Hill, Old Faithful Inn and the Visitor Center. From here we’ll make our way to the north of the National Park where the rustic accommodations allow for the opportunity to step back from technology and embrace lodging in the country’s oldest national park.

    Hiking: 2-3 miles (3-5 kilometers)

    Today you’ll fortify yourself with breakfast at Canyon Lodge before we embark on a backcountry hike full of surprises that include spectacular views high above the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. The Wapiti Trail hike will bring us to the rim of the 10,000-year-old, 1,000-foot deep Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. As we carefully make our way back along the canyon wall, at every bend the pinks, yellows, reds, and oranges of the rock appear all the more bright as you walk to the grand finale of Artist Point, the most spectacular viewpoint of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. After lunch, we’ll drive south back towards Grand Teton National Park and take in the spectacular views on the way to your accommodation for the night, Rustic Inn. Enjoy a night on your own in Jackson exploring this unique mountain town.

Behold the jagged Teton peaks and get close-up views of local wildlife, including bald eagles, moose, bison, elk, osprey, and beavers as you float along the water.

Useful Info

Where does the trip start?

On the first morning of the trip, our two pick-up locations are Lexington Inn at 7:30am or at the 49'er Inn & Suites at 7:45am. You are welcome to book your pre-trip stay at either of these hotels directly or any other hotel in Jackson, though you must make your own way to one of the two pick-up points at the pre-designated times.

Where does the trip end?

Your trip ends with a drop-off at either the Jackson Airport at 12pm in time for flights below or at a hotel of your choice in Jackson around 12:30pm.

What flights would you recommend?

Arrival: We recommend arriving in Jackson at least the day before your trip starts. Many guests like to arrive a day or two early to accommodate potential flight delays and/or explore the city prior to your trip start.
Departure: Flying out on the last day of the trip, we recommend departing from Jackson after 2pm. Earlier flight times will require a separate transfer booked at your own expense.

How do rooming arrangements work?

Trip prices are based on shared arrangements (typically two guests per room), unless otherwise stated. For solo travelers, we’ll pair you with another person of the same gender to share rooms and if there’s no one suitable to share with, there’s no forced single supplement. However, if you specifically request your own rooms, you can opt to pay the single supplement. Solo travelers who book within 90 days of departure, where there are no other solo travelers willing to share, will be required to pay the single supplement. 

For Family Vacation bookings, families consisting of four guests traveling 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 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 is not included?

Flights to and from trip start/end points
Pre/Post Accommodation
Optional extra activities
Travel insurance
Gratuities for your guides

What should I bring with me on the first day?

When you speak with your guides the night before your trip, they will give you a detailed description of what to bring with you on Day 1. Typically, this includes a day pack with your rain jacket, sunglasses, hat, camera, etc. Anything you want easy access to during the day should go in your day pack as the rest of your luggage will go in the locked cargo trailer pulled behind the van. Your guides will provide you with a water bottle on the first morning of your trip and will always have water available for refills. There will be snacks available at all times in the van. Your guides will also have bug spray and sunscreen accessible for you to use.

Will I have contact with my guides before the trip starts?

Your guides will call your cell phone the night before your trip begins to touch base on the first day’s plan. If they don’t get through to you, they will leave a voicemail on your cell phone with all the details you need to plan for your first morning.

What are your recommended guide gratuity guidelines?

You will have 2-3 guides on your Austin Adventure (depending on group size). We recommend USD$20 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.
