The area encompassing the beautiful US Rocky Mountain States of Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota and into Colorado has its own unique cultural history, combining both the heroic and tragic aspects of the opening up of the American West – from the epic movement of pioneers from east to west to the displacement of a native population. From the Black Hills of South Dakota to Hell’s Canyon in Idaho, from Montana’s breathtaking Glacier National Park to the awesome expanses of Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park, the area is blessed with an unspoiled and natural scenic beauty.

Here is just one idea to include Yellowstone as part of your winter holiday – it could easily be added to a longer holiday to include skiing or other winter activities…

Day 1: Arrive Jackson
Arrive Jackson Hole airport then transfer by shuttle bus to your hotel in Jackson (or the ski resort Teton Village) for a 3 night stay.
Here you will have 2 full days to enjoy activities including skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling or perhaps take a horse drawn ride through the National Elk Refuge.

Day 4: Old Faithful, Yellowstone
Travel by shuttle bus to the South Entrance of Yellowstone. From here transfer by snowbus to Old Faithful Snow Lodge for a 3 night stay

During your stay take a full day tour to the “Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone” to see the Falls of the Yellowstone River, wildlife and other park wonders. Guided snowmobile, snowshoe or ski tours are all on offer from the Snow Lodge.

Day 7: Jackson
Return by snowbus and shuttle to Jackson for your final night before your onward journey.

Day 1: Rapid City
Your trip begins in Rapid City (indirect flights from the UK with perhaps an overnight stop in Denver or Minneapolis en route). Give yourself at least 3 nights to explore this area, in the Black Hills of Southern Dakota. Discover the moon-like landscapes of Badlands National Park- with its jagged spires and deep crevasses; explore this unique scenery by foot, horseback or by car. Immerse yourself in the history of Native American Culture, marvel at Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial, drive the Wildlife Loop Scenic Byway in Custer State Park – in addition to bighorn sheep, antelope, deer, elk, coyote, prairie dog, and numerous birds, this park is home to the worlds largest buffalo herds.
Rapid City area 3 nights

Day 4: Buffalo
Traverse the cowboy country from South Dakota into Wyoming; passing through Deadwood, a Gold Rush town and once home to Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Overnight in Buffalo, nestled in the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains. This area, steeped in history, was once the prized hunting grounds of the native Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapho tribes; the historic sites of many turbulent battles, including Fort Phil Kearney and the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, are waiting to be explored.
Buffalo 1 night

With a little more time, a ranch stay to the south of Buffalo is home to the original Hole in the Wall gang – the infamous Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Day 5: Cody
Drive through the beautiful Bighorn Mountains – hiking trails, stunning vistas, waterfalls, wildlife and forests make this a memorable drive. Choose from one of 3 scenic routes across the mountains (you may consider adding an extra day to explore). Your destination is Cody, in Buffalo Bill Country. Arrive in time to visit the Buffalo Bill Historical Centre where 5 museums are brought together under one roof. During the summer Cody hosts a nightly rodeo – not to be missed.
Cody 2 nights

Day 7: Yellowstone via the Beartooth Highway
Today’s drive takes you along, arguably, one of the most spectacular alpine highways in North America, the Beartooth Highway. With sweeping views of snow-covered mountains, crystal clear alpine lakes, there are wonderful hiking opportunities. If you would like to extend your time here, there are several ranches in the area offering you the chance to live your cowboy dream. View and photograph wildlife including mountain goats, moose, elk, marmot, mule deer, black bear, grizzly bear, wolf, bison… Then into Yellowstone through the Lamar Valley – at least 4 nights here in 2 or 3 different locations, allowing you ample time to explore the diverse landscapes and wildlife of this superb park.
Yellowstone 4 nights

Day 11: Grand Teton National Park
Depart Yellowstone and spend a couple of nights in Grand Teton National Park where the magnificent Tetons rise from the valley. The famous Snake River flows through the park – white water rafting is a favourite pastime.
Grand Tetons 2 nights

Day 13: Jackson
And down to Jackson Village for your final night in the cowboy State of Wyoming. Excellent shops, restaurants, bars and galleries – this is a great place to round off your trip.

Little Gems

Some would not class this as a Little Gem, but a visit to the Heart Mountain Interpretive Centre just to the north of Cody is a stark reminder of second world war Japanese internment camps that sprung up in the USA following Pearl Harbour.  This one is well restored and gives a good account of life in these camps – it is well worth a visit.

Explore Hells Gate, just four miles south and the gateway to the Hells Canyon Recreation Area, the deepest canyon in North America.

Summer Holidays 2015 – USA, Canada, Southern Africa or Australia?

Posted on:
Posted by:

Vicki Tester

 

With the sun starting to shine and the temperatures beginning to rise, our thoughts turn to the summer – the hopes that the weather here in the UK will be lovely, and the realisation that it’s probably not likely! If you haven’t already planned your summer holiday, now is the time to think about it. Flights and accommodation are starting to get very busy for the peak travel dates in July and August and before long it will be tricky to find availability.

Consider the United States or Canada – perfect for a family holiday with plenty of diverse attractions to include – vibrant cities, wild national parks, stunning scenery and of course beautiful beaches. Get out on the open road in a hire car or motorhome, and explore at your leisure. We can help you build an itinerary to cater for your interests and preferences.

Or how about Southern Africa? Whilst our summer is their winter, this time of year brings glorious clear skies, great game viewing and a fascinating culture. The exchange rates with the South African Rand at the moment make this a very affordable region to consider.

Finally, if your timeframe allows, consider a bespoke or tailor made trip to Australia – the northern tropical part of the country will be in its dry season – the best time of year to travel. Enjoy beautiful sandy beaches, the incredible Great Barrier Reef or the ancient Daintree Rainforest. The north west of the country is home to the Kimberley region – a wild and unspoilt outback best explored by four-wheel drive or by expedition style ship along the coast.
