Stetsons, saddles and spectacular Mount Rushmore - this Wild West family adventure takes in the frontier town of Jackson, the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. You'll enjoy Insider moments like the rush you get when thousands of gallons of water gush from Old Faithful, as our naturalist guide explains why this world-famous geyser exists at Yellowstone National Park. It's staying in a historic ranch in rural Montana, a 110 year old homestead which welcomes you to Gallatin Canyon with down-home hospitality, a real saloon bar for the grown-ups, and natural pursuits to enjoy in wide open country. And it's the epic sight of Crazy Horse Memorial, carved from the sacred land of Thunderhead Mountain.

This morning, say farewell to majestic Yellowstone. Head east to the town of Cody, named for its most famous native son, Buffalo Bill. Get a glimpse into the fascinating history of the American West at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West where your Local Specialist will reveal the culture of the cowboy, the role of the firearm in the early days and the culture and art of the Plains Indians. Then it's on to Sheridan to check into your hotel.
After a hearty breakfast, your journey continues on to South Dakota. Visit Crazy Horse Memorial where you'll gaze in awe at the towering tribute to legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse being carved into the mountain and discover the culture of his people. The evening is yours to explore in Keystone, once a gold mining boomtown. Or perhaps take an optional trip to the moving Mount Rushmore Lighting Ceremony, a chance to see one of America's most famous landmarks from a different perspective.
The first stop this morning is Bear Country USA, a wildlife park featuring the world's largest private viewing habitat of American black bear. Enjoy a drive through this spectacular and unique park and then walk through the Wildlife Center, where younger and smaller animals frolic in their outdoor exhibits. Next, head to the famous Black Hills of South Dakota. Then it's on to view one of America's most iconic landmarks: the presidents sculpted at Mount Rushmore. You have seen the pictures of Mount Rushmore, but they pale in comparison to seeing this majestic site in person. It took 400 artisans 14 years to carve the sculptures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln into the mountain. This evening, join your fellow adventurers at a Farewell Dinner featuring an American Indian dancer.
Your Wild West adventure comes to an end after breakfast. Say so long to your newfound friends this morning and traverse some of the heavily forested Black Hills and the expansive grasslands of Wyoming on your way to Denver International Airport for your flight home. However, your adventure doesn't have to end here. You may decide to extend your stay and include a city stop over at New York or Boston before you head back to the UK.
