Day 2: Grand Teton – Yellowstone (B)
Today, enjoy wildlife tours at both dawn and dusk. Rise and shine for an early breakfast at your hotel before your first adventure.
Explore Grand Teton National Park by coach in the soft morning light. Search for grizzly and black bears, eagles, bison, pronghorn, moose and wolves with the binoculars and sighting scopes provided by your guide. Your guide will also share facts about the park’s history as you take in panoramic vistas from scenic overlooks.
Then, travel to nearby Yellowstone National Park for your dusk wildlife tour in Hayden Valley, a lovely grassy valley known as one of the park’s best places to see wildlife. Afterwards, unwind over dinner at a restaurant (own expense) and prepare for another early morning.

Day 3: Yellowstone (B)
Have breakfast and get out early for an action-packed day exploring the Upper Loop of Yellowstone National Park. Go on brief hikes to see some of the park’s more than 300 waterfalls and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, a dramatic and colorful chasm.
Enjoy another day of plentiful wildlife sightings, and try capturing photos of grizzly and black bears, coyotes, bison, mule deer and bighorn sheep as you explore Yellowstone’s 2.2 million acres (890,308 hectares) of protected habitat. Head to the Lamar Valley, where wolves were re-introduced to the park in the mid-1990s, for your best opportunity to view these wild and mysterious creatures.
Then, cross just over the border into Montana and settle into your lodge for the night.
