Discover the best of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks with VBT.

What better way to explore Yellowstone, the world’s first National Park and home to the world’s largest concentration of geothermal features, than by foot? And what better way to enter Yellowstone than through neighboring Grand Teton National Park with its towering Grand, Middle, and South Tetons overlooking the Snake River as it meanders through the Jackson Hole Valley. We’ll explore both of these iconic National Parks on foot and by boat as we discover first-hand the unique geology, wildlife, and wilderness.

What to Expect

This tour features fairly easy terrain, with some gradual climbs and spectacular views. We walk on a variety of surfaces, including dirt trails and paved roads. On rainy days the footpaths can be muddy and slippery. Both morning and afternoon walking options are available on most days. This tour is ideal for both enthusiastic beginners and experienced walkers. Our VBT support vehicle is available at specific meeting points for those who need assistance. Several of the walks require a transfer from our hotel to the start of the walk. Our tour leaders often use this time in the van for our morning route review, so we can enjoy a more leisurely morning at breakfast.
