Trace the legends and natural splendors of the American West.

A frontier of adventure, storied sights, and pristine nature.
The country our ancestors dreamed about—and that still resides in our nation’s great parks—is filled with beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, hiking, storytelling, and incredible old lodges you will write home about.

Program Highlights:

  • Experience the diverse and unspoiled natural wilderness of our National Parks, accompanied by an Orbridge Expedition Leader.
  • Overnight in landmark lodges that are national treasures themselves.
  • Witness one of the world’s largest free roaming bison herds and enjoy a chuck wagon cook-out.
  • Marvel at the grandeur of Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, and the world’s largest mammoth site, where scientists are excavating remains of woolly mammoths from 26,000 years ago.
  • View the natural wonders and unique geothermal features of Yellowstone National Park, such as Old Faithful Geyser and the Fountain Paint Pots Nature Trail.
  • Relax: Included are nine nights accommodations, transport via a private deluxe motor coach, airport transfers (for guests arriving and departing on program dates), most meals (9 breakfasts, 1 lunch, and 6 dinners), and admission to all parks.
