Travel wholesaler Travel Impressions is offering clients the opportunity to experience the great outdoors with four new day-tours of Wyoming’s national parks.
The first, the Grand Teton National Park Tour is an all-day, eight-hour tour. Stops include the Grand Teton mountain range, Snake River, Jenny Lake, Jackson Lake and Signal Mountain. Participants will be lead by an experienced naturalist guide who is an expert on both the history and wildlife of the region.
The 10-hour Yellowstone Park Tour, while similar to the Grand Teton Tour, features stops at Yellowstone’s major sites — Old Faithful, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley — and highlights its natural wildlife.
Both the Grand Teton and Yellowstone tours provide a picnic lunch, as well as optional short walks for up-close viewing of wildlife. Rates for both tours are $139 per adult and $79 per child ages 12 and under. Private tours are also available for $700 per van for up to five people with an extra $50 per additional person. Both tours are restricted to a maximum of eight people per guide.
The Summer Sunrise and Sunset Wildlife Safari tours are designed as half-day adventures, focusing on the wildlife of Grand Teton National Park and offering the best times to view and photograph animals such as sheep, moose, coyote, wolves, black and grizzly bears and 17 species of raptors. The tours also provide binoculars, spotting scopes and field guides for help with locating animals as well as a safari-style breakfast or dinner. Both the four-hour Sunrise and five-hour Sunset tours are $89 per adult and $59 per child ages 12 and under. Private tours are available for $425 per van for up to five people with an extra $50 per additional person.
All tours include hotel pick-up and drop-off, and Travel Impressions offers accommodations at the following area hotels — Snake River Lodge & Spa, A Rock Resort; Spring Creek Ranch; and The Lodge at Jackson Hole.
