Travel to Jackson Hole Wyoming. When booking flights, “JAC” is the airport code. Early afternoon arrival is best. Arrange for transport to Teton Village either by shuttle (approximately $24 per person) or cab (approximately $45 for one or two). After check-in, explore Teton Village, have lunch at one of the many eateries and then relax or take a short ride at your leisure. Bikes are off-loaded and available in the afternoon.

Today, we saddle up for Teton National Park where you will experience an unforgettable ride along the Snake River, view crystal clear lakes and loose yourself in the spectacular scenery up close and personal around every turn. Be sure to take your camera along as we stop often for the many perfect shots. During our ride, be alert to the abundant wildlife that populates the park including Bear, Moose, Elk, Buffalo and Bald Eagle. We end our day with a ride to Jackson Hole where you can browse through the many shops, explore great eateries, enjoy a drink at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and experience the excitement of a great western town.

Amazing sights await us as we ride north to Yellowstone National Park where we will watch the awe inspiring eruption of world famous Old Faithful, witness active geysers, mud pots and other volcanic geologic features. Afterwards, enjoy the ride through Fire Hole Canyon as we make our way into Idaho. Exiting Yellowstone N.P. through the western gate into Idaho, we ride south through beautiful potato fields and sunflowers all the while with the backside of the Tetons in view. Watch for Buffalo, Elk and Antelope along the way as we make our way back to Teton Village.

Our ride today takes us across Teton Pass and back into Idaho as we make our way to Swan Valley (Pop. 212) and a brief stop at the famous Rainey Creek Country Store, home of the Squire Ice Cream. After a tasty treat, or two, we follow the winding Snake River back into Wyoming, and through scenic Hoback Canyon for lunch at the Branding Iron Café in Bondurant, Wyoming (Pop. 100). Once back at the Village, be sure to pack your saddlebags for the awesome four days, three nights trip to Cody, Wyoming, Red Lodge, Montana and Gardner, Montana.

Today’s ride we’ll start somewhat earlier as we make our way to Cody. Not because of distance (~200 miles) but because there’s just so much to see. Heading north, we’ll re-inter Yellowstone through the southern gate (hold on to your park passes) with a stop at the historic Yellowstone Hotel on Yellowstone Lake. Continuing our ride through the Park, be prepared to stop for “Buffalo Jams” as herds cross the road every morning and every evening. Riding on, our next stop will be the “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone” and the Lower Falls, the second most photographed feature of the Park, second only to Old Faithful. Continuing across the mountain, we’ll have lunch at Buffalo Bill’s hunting lodge (Wapita Lodge) for lunch. Note: This is Grizzly Bear country so stay alert. Exiting the Park, we travel along what has been called “the most beautiful roadway in America” to Cody Wyoming where we will be staying in downtown Cody.

Enjoy a well-deserved day at leisure while visiting local points of interest in and around Cody, or we will saddle up for a ride across Big Horn Mountain Range, an unbelievable ride.

The adventure continues! After breakfast at Historic Erma’s Hotel, (Highly recommended. And don’t forget to checkout the huge cherry-wood bar. It was a gift from Queen Victoria to Buffalo Bill Cody), we ride north along Chief Joseph Highway and across Bear Tooth Pass into Montana, undoubtedly the most scenic and unforgettable ride of your life. After lunch in Red Lodge, we cross back over Bear Tooth Pass, through Cook City, reinter Yellowstone N.P and through Lamar Valley, one of the many wide valleys in the Park where you will see herds of Buffalo and possibly Wolves and Bears. We continue through Mammoth Springs where you can experience the smell of sulfur for volcanic vents as well as Elk feeding on manicured lawns. We exit the Park through Roosevelt Arch, the northern gateway to Yellowstone National Park dedicated by President Roosevelt in 1903, ending our days ride in Gardner, Montana.

On our ride today, we leave Gardner and re-inter Yellowstone to explore Mammoth Hot Springs. You will see colorful mineral deposits and up close Thermal Pools of the Hot Springs. As we make our way back to Teton Village, we will visit Artist Point, the Lower Falls seen from the eastern side of Yellowstone River. We’ll make several stops through the park and visit West Thumb Basin. This evening we’ll be back at Teton Village where we’ll enjoy a Chuck-wagon style dinner at Dornan’s.

Enjoy a day of leisure while exploring points of interest in and around Jackson Hole. There’s a lot to do in Jackson Hole, including a Tram ride up the mountain or take a bike ride to areas you would like to visit a second time.
