Day 1: Fly to Salt Lake City. On arrival you will be transferred to your hotel and later meet your fellow travellers for a welcome dinner.
Day 2 Salt Lake City/Grand Teton: As you depart Salt Lake City, see famous Temple Square and State Capitol Building before travelling north across the Oregan Trail to visit historic Jackson. Continue to the stunning peaks and glaciers of Grand Teton National Park.
Day 3 Grand Teton/Yellowstone: The Grand Tetons thrust skyward 6,562 feet from the valley floor and you can admire some of the incredible views at Jenny Lake. Then enter Yellowstone, known for its unique geothermal activity, spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife.
Day 4 Yellowstone: Walk among the geysers and watch them erupt and then stroll through Yellowstone's Upper Geyser Basin with your tour director. There's plenty of time to see the colourful bubbling mudpots and observe Old Faithful shooting water over 120 feet in the air. See free-roaming deer, elk and bison in their natural habitat and experience the roar of the Lower Yellowstone Falls as they thunder down the steep canyon walls.
Day 5 Yellowstone/Clearmont: Travel through the stark Shoshone Canyon and Absaroka Rocky Mountains to reach the Wild West town of Cody. Visit the Buffalo Bill Centre of the West, built in honour of one of America's great western legends. Continue to Clearmont in Wyoming.
Day 6 Clearmont/Spearfish Canyon: Perhaps start your morning horse riding with a river guide, fishing or just relaxing in these beautiful surroundings. Then, head towards Devils Tower, an astounding geological feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie surrounding the Black Hills. Travel to Spearfish Canyon, a great spot for wildlife enthusiasts where the breathtaking limestone palisades of this creek-carved gorge are more ancient than the Grand Canyon.
Day 7 Spearfish Canyon/Custer State Park: Keep a look out for pronghorn antelopes as you cross the great high plains to the Black Hills of South Dakota. In Deadwood, join Kevin Costner's Original Deadwood Tour and explore this once lawless town. With a Local Expert, hear about the days of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, who made this town famous during the gold rush. Later, hear stories told by Lakota tribe members as they share a live narrative of the Great Sioux Nation. Continue to Custer State Park, renowned for its beautiful landscape and abundant wildlife.
Day 8 Custer State Park/Black Hills: View the Crazy Horse Memorial, dedicated to all Native Americans. Move on to Mount Rushmore National Memorial, where carvings of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt dominate the Black Hills. The rest of the day is at leisure before a farewell dinner.
Day 9 Black Hills/Denver: Transfer to Denver international airport where your tour concludes.
