Yellowstone awe

"Our Yellowstone Adventure exceeded our expectations and ranks at the top of travel experiences. Our guides, Jamie and Zach, treated us like royalty and were very responsive to our needs. The meals they prepared and served were excellent. Having a room with a view of Old Faithful was so unexpected and very cool. The hikes were very manageable, even for seniors like us. Our guides provided lots of encouragement for activities that might have been out of our comfort zones.

Yellowstone Adventure

"This was a beyond amazing adventure. I was looking forward to hiking in Yellowstone, but had reservations about zip lining, whitewater rafting and horseback riding. I did them all despite them being outside my comfort zone!!
Staying at the historic Old Faithful Inn and having a room that looked out on Old Faithful was a fantastic beginning to the trip. The meals Zach and Jamie fixed while on the trip were delicious and their knowledge of the area added to the enjoyment. Our last night in Chico was sad because our adventure was over, but also a celebration of the time we’d had together and the memories we made

Yellowstone, Big Sky & Paradise Valley Adventure - September 2023

Yellowstone Big Sky & Paradise Valley trip

"Our adventure was FABULOUS. We had an absolutely wonderful time. I’ve never finished a vacation when I wouldn’t have changed a thing, until this one. Our group ranged from my 20 yo daughter to a 75 yo grandfather. We all clicked from the start and the entire trip was full of laughter and camaraderie. Our guides, Bryson and Zack, took great care of us and gave us the red carpet treatment the entire trip. I felt very spoiled. They showed us things we never would have experienced on our own and cooked us delicious lunches. Every day was different and we kept saying they couldn’t top it the next day, but somehow they kept exceeding expectations. Zack and Bryson made a memorable trip completely unforgettable.

Worth every penny

"Trip was extremely well organized from start to finish. All accommodation were above my expectations. Most food options were very good, had a fantastic meal at the Jackson Lake Lodge. The planned activities were amazing and we all had a lot of fun. We had enough time after our planned activities to relax before the meal. 100% would recommend for anyone who wants to see the best of Yellowstone.

Cousins Trip to Yellowstone

"As our 17 year old son said about the trip and I think we all agree, the Cousin Trip to Yellowstone was, "Straight up ballin'." Our guides, Jackie Querido, David Whayland, and Jaime Gault were extremely knowledgable, very gracious and friendly, super responsive to all the guest's needs, and kept a pace that was good for teenagers and adults alike. The lunches that were made by our guides and the one dinner that was a barbecue cookout were fantastic! We also deeply appreciated all of the personal special touches they provided- strawberry beverages at the end of a hot hike to the beach, music playlists and guest DJing in the vans, and birthday celebrations to name just a few. The accommodations in and just outside of the park were awesome (especially the historic inns), and the last evening at Chico Hot Springs was so special many of us were moved to tears. Yellowstone is an unbelievably special place, made more special by the crew at Austin Adventures.

"Our family of 4 (2 adults + 11yo + 9yo) had a great time on the Yellowstone Family Vacation tour. The guides were amazing - full of knowledge, surprises, and desire to keep everyone happy. This saved us a ton of trouble planning everything and allowed us to stay in the park multiple nights, seeing much more than we could have ourselves. BIG kudos to David, Jackie and Jamie for a great job!!!!

Yellowstone, Big Sky & Paradise Valley Adventure - August 2023

An activity filled week in Beautiful National Parks

"I have travelled with Austin adventures before, so I knew the quality they deliver. The itinerary is well delineated giving time for things you might not think of doing on the way to Big Attractions like Yellowstone. The attention to that detail eg doing loops instead of retracing steps in the driving path as well as hiking is deeply appreciated. The accommodation and activities result from connections and relationships, so you get the best available, esp in the Absaroka Mountains. It's wonderful to meet 6th generation cowboys on your outride, and really understand their lifestyle.
Without a doubt the guides are what makes the tour seamless and special. They know how to engage and get the disparate people talking and engaged and playing together as a group. Their attentiveness and anticipation of your needs is remarkable. Our two guides, Bryson and Jamie, were exceptional in their knowledge, warmth and cheerful attentiveness.

"This was our first group trip and we didn't know what to expect. It exceeded anything we could have imagined in terms of the guides and the entire smooth process. Derek and Moose (Michael) are top notch. They were knowledgeable, anticipated our needs, great ambassadors for the area and Austin Adventures. They were attentive and the little touches like refreshments and snacks, in addition to the excellent lunches, were much appreciated. The days were well planned out; interesting and thoroughly enjoyable!

TETONS, YELLOWSTONE, GLACIER

"The trip was nothing short of fantastic! The sights were amazing. They were everything that we'd hope for and then some. Not having to deal with the logistics of things was a real luxury. The guides knew how to avoid the crowds as best as possible and were always there to help. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and hard working. We were surprised and amazed by the wonderful lunches that seemed to appear out of nowhere. From forest settings, mountain views or on the beach, we never went hungry. Restaurants were top notch as well. We were also fortunate in that we were a small group of 5 and everybody got along well with each other. It was like traveling with family.

Yellowstone Experience

"Was a little nervous about the zipline which would be the start of our adventures. The zipline instructors were very safety minded and professional so I was willing to give it a try. As we climbed up the first platform, I saw the river we would be crossing. My turn... woo! I loved it!

So enjoyed hiking the trails with knowledgeable, helpful, uplifting, and very fun to be with guides. The variety of trails with features geysers, mud springs, wildlife, lakes, and cliffs. At times I felt we were walking on the moon! Loved the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and the clever way our guide introduced us to the stunning views.

Thank you! Happy trails.

Wyoming FAQs

Do you recommend buying travel insurance?

As an Austin Adventures traveler, it’s highly recommended you take out travel insurance to cover the likes of travel delays, missed connections, medical expenses or injury, or lost baggage for your travel with us. Please head to our Travel Protection page for more in-depth information and our recommended insurance provider.

What's included on your North America trips?

Accommodation

We've spent years finding places to stay that are quaint, perfectly-located, and comfortable when we take you to the most amazing parts of North America. We offer a wide variety of accommodations on our trips ranging from locally run inns and first-class hotels to resorts, dude ranches and historic national park cabins. Accommodations are selected for their location, unique charm and history, and offer a true feel for the region. We strongly believe in the value of a good night's sleep and our accommodation reflects this. We also like to have somewhere comfortable to relax after the day's activities.

Transport

We're really focused on ensuring that we spend as little time as possible sitting in vehicles, and that we optimise your vacation for adventuring in the great outdoors. Our average driving time is just over two hours a day, and we make plenty of stops for bathroom breaks and sightseeing along the way. We use modern, comfortable 15-passenger vans for all of our transfers and a second van is added to most departures to provide more flexibility and more room to spread out while seeing the sights! Make no mistake - our trips are not typical bus tour vacation packages! Picture more of a road trip with family complete with good music, tasty snacks, and plenty of guide-supplied fun facts along the way to keep you entertained!

Meals

Just about all your meals are included when you travel with Austin Adventures in North America. We provide a wide variety of cuisine - breakfasts are typically eaten at your hotel on your own time in the morning before meeting up with the group. Lunches feature everything from elaborate picnics to roadside cafes to sandwiches trailside. Dinners are usually eaten at our hotel's dining room or a local restaurant with plenty of options to choose from. We easily cater to vegetarians, picky kids, and people with particular dietary needs. All our guides have food safety certificates and are well-practiced in the art of food prep and serving while on-the-move. You'll find the meals are a real highlight of your trip!

All Guiding Services

Each trip features two or three incredible guides and our average guest to guide ratio is 6:1. Our guests are often drawn to North America by the beautiful scenic landscapes, promise of wilderness and clean air - and there's no doubt you'll find all that, though what you may not be expecting is to forge real, genuine friendships with your fellow tripmates, including our wonderful guides. They're hands-down the BEST guides you'll ever come across.

Activities

Any activity described in our itinerary, such as hiking, rafting, horseback riding, kayaking and biking, are included in your trip cost. Our itineraries are pretty jam-packed to maximize our time spent exploring in these amazing places, and your guides will make it clear if there are additional activities available (at your expense).

How many people are there on each of our North America trips?

We get a real variety of people on our trips and they all seem to have one thing in common – a love of the outdoors! Our trips can accommodate up to 22 guests, depending on each departure. Our adult-only departures require a minimum age of 16 years and generally feature a mix of singles, couples and friends, and our family departures require a minimum age of 6 years to join (7 years on our Alaska Family Adventure) and are a great way to meet other like-minded families who like to get outside.
Please note child rates apply to children 12 years and under.

Do you charge a forced single supplement if I'm a solo traveller?

We welcome many solo travelers on our trips – in fact, we get so many solo travelers and they always say it’s a great way to travel alone, but not actually by themselves. You’ll have an incredible adventure sharing your experiences with other like-minded travelers, and the best part is we don't charge extra for solo travelers, providing you don’t mind sharing a room. However, for bookings within 90 days of your chosen departure, a forced single supplement will apply if there is no other guest of the same gender already booked to share with.

If you prefer not to share a room at all, you can upgrade to a single room, if one is available. 

If I book a trip with my children, will I be sharing a room with them?

Active Adventures & Austin Adventures family vacations are naturally about spending time with family and as such, most families opt to share rooms on our trips. At time of booking, families consisting of four guests with children aged 17 and under will be automatically assigned one shared room. However, the following alternative rooming allocations are available:

  • Families consisting of four guests with all children aged 13 and above are welcome to opt for additional rooms as per advertised double occupancy adult rates.
  • Families consisting of four guests with at least one child aged 12 and under are automatically assigned a shared room. However, families can opt to pay the adult rates for all guests in their family to have an additional room.
  • The same principles apply for families consisting of more than four guests.

Rooming preferences are subject to availability and must be communicated in writing at time of booking. Automatic assignments as per this policy will be applied in the absence of any specification provided by guests. Any request for additional rooms during trips will be at the guests’ own expense and subject to rates made available by the accommodation provider at the time. All minors (guests aged 17 and under) must be accompanied by at least one adult.

What if I need a special diet?

We’re accustomed to catering to the following special diets:

  • vegan (no meat or animal products)
  • vegetarian (no meat products)
  • pescatarian (vegetarian, and eat fish)
  • no red meat (eat chicken & fish)
  • no pork (eat chicken & fish)
  • gluten intolerant (no wheat, rye, barley or oats)
  • lactose intolerant (no dairy products)
  • picky kids (send us a list of what your child will eat and we'll make sure to have it!)
You will get the opportunity to specify your particular requirements when you fill in your travel wallet. If you have any other dietary requirements please let us know well in advance, via email or the online travel wallet.

 

How much luggage can I bring on the North America trips?

You are allowed one piece of luggage on your trip, plus a daypack. Your main piece of luggage should not exceed 50 pounds (23 kilograms) and can be anything from a duffle bag to a sports bag with wheels or a suitcase. You’ll also want a good quality backpack sized 25-30 liters (2000 cubic inches) to use throughout the days.

How much spending money should I bring and where do I get cash?

You'll be able to find a reliable ATM once you arrive to start your trip, within the township or at the airport you land in, as national park ATM locations are sparse at best. Aside from tips for your guides, you could bring $200 and go home with change though some people like to bring some cash to cover a round of drinks, a few souvenirs, and dinner on "night on your own", although you could just as easily use a credit card for these purchases too.

What are your recommended guide gratuity guidelines?

You will have 2-3 guides on your Austin Adventure (depending on group size) and we recommend $15-25 per day, per guest, per guide. Typically, gratuities are offered by check or cash in local currency on the final morning of the trip and can either be given to each guide individually or to one guide to be equally distributed. Most of our guides these days also accept gratuities via Venmo (please note this app does not work in Canada). All dining, housekeeping and activity tips are included in your trip price.
