Wyoming Vacations

national parks vacations v2

Experience the untamed beauty of two of our nation's most beloved national parks - Grand Teton & Yellowstone - on our Wyoming adventure vacations.

Grand Teton and Yellowstone’s majesty springs to life on our adventure-filled Wyoming vacations. Each vacation celebrates one of North America’s most recognized and revered mountain ranges. The highest of the snow-capped, snaggle-toothed Tetons towers 13,770 feet into the clouds. Twelve breathtaking summits in all, the Tetons are home to pristine glacier-carved valleys, spruce and fir forests, alpine meadows, and rushing creeks.

Yellowstone is the world’s first national park. Its beautiful mountains create spectacular valleys that are peppered with geysers, fumaroles, steam vents, and mud pots. Rushing rivers feed crystalline lakes, and lush forests make a comfortable home for grizzly bears, moose, elk, bison, wolves, deer, coyotes, and eagles.

Spend your Wyoming vacations hiking Yellowstone’s backcountry trails and the granite spires of the Tetons. Bike winding country roads, past historic ranches, and wildflower-studded meadows. Raft the rowdy Snake River through a spectacular granite canyon. Witness, up close, the rich diversity of wildlife. At night, cheer on the wranglers at the Jackson Rodeo, dig into a steak dinner, kick back with a cold beverage, and count the stars polka-dotting an open night sky.

Yellowstone in Winter - February 2024

Incredible wildlife

"The wildlife was outstanding in winter. Our guides, Steve Rogers and Bryson Shafer were exceptional in taking care of us and making a hard job seem easy. They had our well-being and safety in mind and made our experience fun. We laughed a lot.

Yellowstone in Winter - February 2024

Yellowstone in the Winter, A lifetime adventure

"This trip was perfect from beginning to end because of the wonderful guides we had. Steve and Bryson were not only knowledgeable about the park and where to go, what to see, but paid such attention to the extras as having a lunch in the park set out by Bryson. The park is just such an incredible work of God's creations, with wildlife, geysers, mudpots, fumaroles and settings so beautiful a camera just can't capture the site. Our weather was perfect and we were so lucky to see all the wildlife we did. Bisons of course, wolves, big horned sheep, prawn horn antelope, Bald eagle, swans, and a skunk. Thank you again Bryson and Steve, we couldn't have had a better time, and you guys just were the icing on the travel cake!

"Our Yellowstone Adventure exceeded our expectations and ranks at the top of travel experiences. Our guides, Jamie and Zach, treated us like royalty and were very responsive to our needs. The meals they prepared and served were excellent. Having a room with a view of Old Faithful was so unexpected and very cool. The hikes were very manageable, even for seniors like us. Our guides provided lots of encouragement for activities that might have been out of our comfort zones.

"This was a beyond amazing adventure. I was looking forward to hiking in Yellowstone, but had reservations about zip lining, whitewater rafting and horseback riding. I did them all despite them being outside my comfort zone!!
Staying at the historic Old Faithful Inn and having a room that looked out on Old Faithful was a fantastic beginning to the trip. The meals Zach and Jamie fixed while on the trip were delicious and their knowledge of the area added to the enjoyment. Our last night in Chico was sad because our adventure was over, but also a celebration of the time we’d had together and the memories we made

Yellowstone Big Sky & Paradise Valley trip

"Our adventure was FABULOUS. We had an absolutely wonderful time. I’ve never finished a vacation when I wouldn’t have changed a thing, until this one. Our group ranged from my 20 yo daughter to a 75 yo grandfather. We all clicked from the start and the entire trip was full of laughter and camaraderie. Our guides, Bryson and Zack, took great care of us and gave us the red carpet treatment the entire trip. I felt very spoiled. They showed us things we never would have experienced on our own and cooked us delicious lunches. Every day was different and we kept saying they couldn’t top it the next day, but somehow they kept exceeding expectations. Zack and Bryson made a memorable trip completely unforgettable.

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.

Cousins Trip to Yellowstone

"As our 17 year old son said about the trip and I think we all agree, the Cousin Trip to Yellowstone was, "Straight up ballin'." Our guides, Jackie Querido, David Whayland, and Jaime Gault were extremely knowledgable, very gracious and friendly, super responsive to all the guest's needs, and kept a pace that was good for teenagers and adults alike. The lunches that were made by our guides and the one dinner that was a barbecue cookout were fantastic! We also deeply appreciated all of the personal special touches they provided- strawberry beverages at the end of a hot hike to the beach, music playlists and guest DJing in the vans, and birthday celebrations to name just a few. The accommodations in and just outside of the park were awesome (especially the historic inns), and the last evening at Chico Hot Springs was so special many of us were moved to tears. Yellowstone is an unbelievably special place, made more special by the crew at Austin Adventures.

Yellowstone, Big Sky & Paradise Valley Adventure - August 2023

An activity filled week in Beautiful National Parks

"I have travelled with Austin adventures before, so I knew the quality they deliver. The itinerary is well delineated giving time for things you might not think of doing on the way to Big Attractions like Yellowstone. The attention to that detail eg doing loops instead of retracing steps in the driving path as well as hiking is deeply appreciated. The accommodation and activities result from connections and relationships, so you get the best available, esp in the Absaroka Mountains. It's wonderful to meet 6th generation cowboys on your outride, and really understand their lifestyle.
Without a doubt the guides are what makes the tour seamless and special. They know how to engage and get the disparate people talking and engaged and playing together as a group. Their attentiveness and anticipation of your needs is remarkable. Our two guides, Bryson and Jamie, were exceptional in their knowledge, warmth and cheerful attentiveness.

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.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Wyoming?

We recommend traveling in Wyoming literally at any time of year! After all, two of our world’s most beautiful national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton, beg to be explored year round. Whatever time of year you decide to travel and whatever type of Wyoming vacation packages you choose, your experience will be one you won’t soon forget!

travel tips wyoming

Planning for your Wyoming Vacation

Don’t worry, you don’t need to pack your formal wear for Wyoming vacations out west, so you’ll have plenty of room for all the layers you’ll want to have on hand for the different types of weather that may arise on your Wyoming vacation. They say, “if you don’t like the weather in Wyoming, wait five minutes” as the weather in Yellowstone and the Tetons can be unpredictable. You’ll want to prepare for hot, cold, and everything in between, no matter what time of year it is! Read on for a few great tips on how to prepare for your adventure.

Expect Four Different Seasons in a Day.
We’ve heard stories of sun, rain, sleet, hail, and snow – all in a single day! While that many types of weather may be uncommon, you’ll want to pack for both the heat and the cold, no matter the time of year. In the summertime, it may be hot during the day, but the nights can be very cool, while in the winter it’ll be cold outside, but toasty warm in the lodges. Check weather.com for an up-to-date forecast while you do your packing, so you know what to expect (but play it on the safe side and pack some layers – which brings us to our next point)

Layer Up.
Layering your clothing can play a crucial role in your comfort while on vacation in Wyoming. In the summertime, if you’re hot, you can always strip down a layer or two to cool off. In the winter, if you’re cold, adding an extra layer or two (or three or four) never hurts. You’ll want to pack some lightweight, moisture-wicking under layers and thicker (but breathable) outer layers. Always bring a light winter hat and gloves, no matter what time of year (trust us, you won’t regret it).

Pack Your Raincoat – and Make Sure it’s Always Accessible!
In the summertime, an afternoon thunderstorm can appear quite unexpectedly; and when it rains, it pours (usually for a short time but long enough to get you soaked without adequate gear!) You’ll want to bring along a quality rain jacket (we’re not talking ponchos here), and keep it near the top or strapped onto the outside of your pack for easy access. Keeping yourself dry will keep a smile on your face.

Don’t Forget Your Camera
You are about to travel to big sky country where the mountains touch the clouds, the wildlife roam the plains and the geysers put on a water show you’ll never forget! Bring your Nikon, your GoPro, your iPhone (just not your drones, those are illegal!) You’ll find a million things to take pictures of in Wyoming and will love looking back at the photo memories of your vacation years from now.

Travel Tips for your Wyoming Adventure Vacation

You’re About to Enter a High Elevation Zone

We find that many of our guests come from low elevations (many from sea level!) and adjusting to the high altitude of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (anywhere between 6,500 and 8,000 feet) can be a bit of a struggle during the first few days. Vacationing in a higher elevation means you need to drink lots of water (more than you think since you’re also being active), lay off large amounts of alcohol, and take it a little easier than you typically would out there on the trails. It will take a few days for your body to adjust, but it’ll get there! Also, don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen – humidity is low, and sun exposure is high (even on a cloudy day!)

Trip Extensions Anyone?

Your Adventure Consultants are full of ideas for ways to extend your Wyoming adventure if you have a few days to spare on either end of your trip. In the summertime, zip lining, fly fishing, horseback riding, road tripping, museum touring, peak conquering and endless other activities are abundant in or near your host city. In the winter, experience skiing or snowboarding at a local resort, take a sleigh ride through thousands of “wapiti” on the National Elk Refuge or hunker down in a quaint B&B on the edge of town.

Wyoming – Wide Open Spaces

Did you know that Yellowstone National Park is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined?! Because the national parks of Wyoming are so large, they can be challenging to navigate on your own, plus, there are so many fantastic sites to see that it can be overwhelming to pick and choose what exactly you want to look at on your Wyoming adventure. Leave it to the experts at Austin Adventures to guide you to the perfect Wyoming vacation. Our expert tour guides will take you to all the “gotta-see-it” attractions (often in a way that most tourists don’t know about), but they’ll also show you the hidden gems that you just won’t find without expert knowledge. We’ve been running guided vacations in Wyoming for decades, and we feel we know how to reveal the best of Cowboy Country!

Do you recommend buying travel insurance?

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.
