Geysers to Glaciers
Breathtaking glacier lakes, rugged mountains, stunning waterfalls, fascinating geysers, and the “big sky”—these and much more wait for you on this National Parks tour. Your tour starts in Salt Lake City, ends in Seattle, and overnights along the way in Jackson, Yellowstone National Park, Helena, Kalispell, and Spokane. Stay two nights inside Yellowstone National Park, where you’ll view the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Stand in awe as you hear the roar of the water and view the glorious falls of Yellowstone’s impressive Upper and Lower Falls, almost twice as high as Niagara Falls. Witness Old Faithful Geyser as it explodes into the air, and admire the herds of bison, elk, and other wildlife as you travel the park. In Grand Teton National Park, enjoy beautiful glacier-fed Jenny Lake and the rugged mountains crested with snow most of the year. In Coeur d’Alene, explore the lakefront town and enjoy Lake Coeur d’Alene, a striking lake with a boardwalk perfect for a stroll! A highlight of this western National Parks tour is your ride on the vintage Red Jammer bus in Glacier National Park, with its pristine forests, jagged mountains, alpine meadows, and gorgeous lakes. You’ll drive along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of North America’s most spectacular roadways. Hugging the mountainside, witness stunning scenery along the way. Words and photos cannot capture the beauty—you must witness it in person! This National Parks tour also includes sightseeing in Salt Lake City and Seattle, a full day of leisure in Jackson, and a stop at the National Bison Range with a chance to watch for bison, elk, antelope, and mountain sheep. Scenic drives will let you discover why Montana is called Big Sky Country. For the value-minded traveler, this tour is the perfect vacation!
