Adventure Daily Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrive in Jackson, Wyoming
The snow-capped tops of the awe-inspiring Teton Mountain Range surround Jackson Airport. Once you're on the ground, a driver "wrangles" your luggage and takes you to the historic Wort Hotel! Unwind from your journey and enjoy the wintry scenery as your Adventure Guides check you into your home for the next 2 nights.

Private Welcome Dinner
Meet the other families who will share your adventure for a private meal at the Wort Hotel. Have a hearty meal, hear live cowboy music and get ready for your quest!

Meal Included: Dinner


Day 2:

Jackson Hole Iditarod Sled Dog Tour
Fuel up on breakfast at the hotel before you bundle up for a howling good time! Learn the art of "mushing" on a modern sled with a musher-guide. Take turns guiding these beautiful dogs or riding the sled as it dashes over the powdery white snow through serene scenery.

Granite Hot Springs
After sledding through the frosty terrain, relax in the rejuvenating waters of this natural hot spring as steam rises from the pool surface. Nestled in the Gros Ventre Mountains, this getaway sits beneath the snow-kissed branches of towering fir trees. Float, swim, soak and marvel at the magnificent view as your mush-guides prepare lunch.

Lunch at Granite Hot Springs
Refreshed and invigorated by the spring waters, sit down for a lunch of delicious hot stew at the picnic tables, surrounded by the springs and sled dog teams. Afterward, mush back to the Iditarod and then return to your hotel. The evening is yours to spend in Jackson Hole as you wish!

Dinner On Us in Jackson Hole
Let your Adventure Guides help you choose the perfect restaurant for a family meal on us.

Day 3:

A Leisurely Morning in Jackson
After a leisurely breakfast, take the next hour or so to explore Jackson or just rest up at the hotel for the day's adventures. Then board a motor coach to start your journey to Yellowstone National Park.

Lunch at Flagg Ranch
Stop at this picturesque ranch for a picnic lunch! Dine on a delicious boxed meal provided by The Wort Hotel as you take in the dazzling wilderness sights covered with snowfall.

Journey to Yellowstone National Park
Board a snowcoach and set off on a 4-hour trek to Yellowstone National Park and your next hotel—Old Faithful Snow Lodge. Keep your camera handy because the coach makes stops along the way at both flowing and frozen waterfalls, steaming geysers and other geothermic features.

West Thumb Geyser Basin
On the way to the lodge, the snowcoach stops for a visit to the breathtaking West Thumb Geyser Basin! Learn the history and highlights of this fascinating destination on an interpretive tour. The steam and snow create a hauntingly beautiful landscape of gurgling mudpots, multi-colored "paint pots" and misty hot springs. Let these otherworldly sights transport you without ever leaving earth!

Arrive at Old Faithful Snow Lodge
Located near the famed geyser, this contemporary hotel reflects its natural surroundings, with timber construction and authentic western furnishings. This snowy haven will be your home away from home for the next 2 nights.

Private Welcome Dinner Gather in a private room at the hotel for a buffet dinner with your fellow Adventurers.

Ice Skating, S'mores and More!
Relax by the fire or glide over ice in the crisp air at the hotel rink. After a few invigorating laps, settle down for s'mores and storytelling as your Adventure Guides spin a yarn or two telling the lore of the land.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner


Day 4:

Lower Loop Tour
Board a snowcoach for a quest through glorious Yellowstone National Park as you visit the awe-inspiring landmarks that have captured the imagination of artists and adventurers alike. Join a naturalist guide for a morning tour as you discover magical places like Black Sand Basin, Fountain Paint Pots, Artist Point and more! As you explore waterfalls, wildlife and famous views of the park, your guide entertains you with fascinating historical, geological and environmental highlights of this famous caldera.

Picnic Lunch at the Canyon Visitor Center
This is your chance to gather 'round and grab some grub before heading off to your afternoon adventures. Chow down on a boxed lunch provided by the hotel before completing the second half of your journey.

Lower Loop Tour Continued
The excursion continues as you make your way to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Sculpted by ancient volcanic eruptions and floods, the wintery canyon walls rise dramatically along either side of the mighty Yellowstone River that occasionally breaks through the ice. The breathtaking views are made even more magical by the blankets of frost.

Next we travel through the expansive Hayden Valley. This time of year the grassy valley floor is transformed into a broad wintry plain with scattered geysers, springs and other geothermal curiosities. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as coyotes, red foxes and even wolves roaming the winter terrain.

Farewell Dinner at Old Faithful Snow Lodge
Gather at the hotel with your fellow Adventurers for a festive farewell dinner. Toast your newfound friendships and the extraordinary beauty you've shared these last few days. After dinner, settle in for a private screening of the Disney movie Snow Dogs. It's a night to remember—with some surprises along the way!

Breakfast at the Lodge
Bid goodbye to your fellow Adventurers and enjoy one last breakfast in the wintery Wild West.

Old Faithful
