Exploration of three national parks: glaciers, geysers, wolves and bears.
The Rocky Mountains span from northern Canada to New Mexico in the USA. In the middle of this range are three celebrated national parks harbouring its most varied scenery and wildlife: the spires and azure lakes of Grand Teton, the towering sentinel peaks and broad valleys of Glacier and of course the vigorous geology and wildlife of Yellowstone.
From colourful meadows, canyons and waterfalls to fiery volcanic pools and glaciated rocky spires, this is a trip with dramatic views. Bison, bears, wolves, coyote and eagles roam amongst the forests, plains and peaks.
Different specialist local guides accompany us in each park to make the most of our visits. We track with a wolf guide and hike amongst geysers with a geology guide in Yellowstone, while wilderness and wildlife guides show us the highlights of the incredible mountains of Glacier and Grand Teton.

What makes this trip responsible?
When hiking we stick to marked trails to reduce our impact on the local environment and we camp in the designated grounds regulated by each National Park. We employ a ‘leave no trace’ policy throughout in regard to litter - everything taken into the park is taken out to preserve the local environment and we recycle wherever possible. Local shuttle services are used for transportation within the parks.
We also support conservation of the wilderness areas visited by employing specialist local guides in the fields of geology, wilderness and wildlife to accompany us at different stages of the trek. This channels money back into the local economy and at the same time increases our understanding of the environment that we are visiting and its local flora and fauna. With a small group size of 12, we hope to reduce the environmental impacts of visiting remote areas.
