Yellowstone National Park
The world’s first national park is an astonishing geothermallandscape of geysers, lakes and waterfalls. Drive the Grand Loop Road and discover remarkable sights such as the magnificent waterfall at the ‘Grand Canyon of Yellowstone’ and Old Faithful geyser’s famously regular eruptions. The park is also home to an array of wildlife including buffalo, elk, bears and even the elusive wolf.
Grand Teton National Park
Just south of Yellowstone, and no less impressive, is the spectacular scenery of Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. Huge, rugged mountains are reflected in the pristine, alpine lakes below. Explore the park on a hike or scenic drive and look out for moose, buffalo and even bears and bald eagles. Stay close to the park in Teton Village, within the Jackson Hole valley.
Glacier National Park
Towering mountains, deep valleys carved out by glaciers and crystal clear lakes make up this incredible national park in northern Montana. Soak up the mesmerising vistas from one of the many hiking trails and take a scenic drive along the twists and turns of Going-tothe-Sun Road. Stay in the charming mountain town of Whitefish, a 30 minute drive from the park entrance.
Fly into Denver or Salt Lake City to start your Rockies adventure. Explore Denver’s lively downtown, enjoy its museums and breweries or visit Cherry Creek for great shopping. Friendly Salt Lake City is home to Temple Square with its picturesque gardens and historic Mormon Tabernacle. Both cities are blessed with a dramatic mountain backdrop.
From the snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes of Rocky Mountain National Park to the remarkable red rock formations of the Colorado National Monument, Colorado offers magnificent and diverse scenery. It is also home to the extraordinary Pueblo cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park – the largest archaeological preserve in the USA.
The Black Hills of South Dakota are home to many varied attractions and Rapid City is an ideal base from which to explore them. See the presidents’ faces at iconic Mount Rushmore then head to Custer State Park with its scenery of granite spires and roaming buffalo. For a taste of the wild west visit Deadwood, once a notorious town of outlaws and gamblin’ saloons. To the east of the Black Hills lies the stark, haunting landscape of Badlands National Park.
