Program #17306RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 12 - 15 years of age.

From streamside habitat to forested mountains, share adventure and hands-on exploration of Yellowstone National Park with a younger generation. Hiking, horseback riding, a river float, campout and interpretation take place within the largest nearly intact, temperate ecosystem on earth, where plants, animal, bugs, fish, water, geology, habitat and weather patterns working together to make the whole.


Highlights

• Float the mighty Yellowstone River outside the park to experience riparian habitat and geology, then make camp for the night under star-filled skies.
• Yellowstone’s volcano is revealed through thermal basin, canyon, forest and foothill hikes. Examine mud pots, fumaroles, geysers and hot springs.
• The creak of saddle leather and hoofbeats on the trail punctuate trailside discoveries in the high country, followed by a cowboy cookout.

Activity Notes

Three hikes up to three miles each on moderately challenging terrain. Elevations from 5,200 feet to 7,700 feet. Ride horseback for two hours. Whitewater rafting seven miles on Class 2 and 3 waters.
