Bozeman, Mammoth Hot Springs, Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson

Explore two of America’s greatest natural treasures: Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. On daily excursions, discover Yellowstone’s wilderness and geothermal wonders, and venture into magnificent valleys to spot bison, bears, elk, eagles, and coyotes. Peer into the yawning abyss of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and witness Old Faithful’s thrilling eruptions. Then head south to the awesomely jagged peaks of the Teton Range. Go on a ranger-led hike in a glacial valley, raft down the wildlife-rich Snake River, and cruise the emerald waters of Jenny Lake.

 
The expedition cost includes meals, accommodations, and excursions as indicated in the itinerary; services of the National Geographic expert or expedition leader and local guides; ground transportation; most transfers; baggage handling; gratuities (except for those for the ship or train crew, where applicable, unless otherwise noted in the itinerary); and pre-trip materials.
