Legendary Journeys and Adventures

The heart of Yellowstone beats with nature's gems... furred, feathered, smoldering and sculpted... in moving tableaus wild and wondrous.

Venture into the wilderness with naturalists passionate about the landscapes you'll explore – and the grizzlies, wolves and elk you'll encounter. The excitement heats up during a stay next to Old Faithful... on geology walks to bubbling geothermal wonders... on a whitewater rafting trip and interpretive hikes in Grand Teton National Park... and during visits to museums and ranches where the West really comes alive on Tauck's Yellowstone American Safari Vacation.

Four nights inside Yellowstone

Nights 3, 4, 5 and 6

Spend four nights at two lodges inside Yellowstone National Park

Named among "50 Tours of a Lifetime" by National Geographic Traveler magazine, our small group "Yellowstone & the Tetons: American Safari" defines adventure in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, and features four nights at two inside-the-park properties in Yellowstone National Park – two at Old Faithful Snow Lodge, recognized with the Cody Award for Western Design as a significant modern example of "classic" new-style architecture within the park; and two at the historic, recently renovated Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Cabins.

Snake River rafting trip

Day 2

Enjoy a whitewater rafting adventure on the Snake River

Legend has it that the Snake River got its name by mistake, when a Shoshone hand sign for "fish" was misinterpreted as "snake," and the name stuck. Whatever you call it, it's a pretty awesome river – as you'll find out for yourself when you head out on a whitewater rafting adventure along the Snake's route through the magnificent Tetons.

Bicycling in the Tetons

Day 8

Go bicycling in Grand Teton National Park

Trade in your hiking boots (temporarily) for a bicycle as you join our guide for a leisurely ride on the new Teton Mountain Trail, travelling along the scenic sagebrush of Antelope Flats, with the majestic Tetons just beyond – keeping an eye out for bison, pronghorn and, naturally, antelope as you marvel at the grandeur around you.

Expert talks in Yellowstone

Days 4 and 6

Enjoy talks by a park historian and a wildlife photographer in Yellowstone

Our exclusive partnership with award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan has created exclusive on-tour film vignettes, Ken Burns Events, and Crafted by Tauck and Ken Burns journeys including "Yellowstone & the Tetons: American Safari." The many exclusive touches to these specially created tours include access to Ken and Dayton's extensive network of local experts to maximize your travel experience in the National Parks in ways that add layers of meaning and appreciation… like talks by a national parks historian at your lodge and a wildlife photographer in his log cabin!

    Travel Documents

    Yellowstone & The Tetons: American Safari begins and ends in the U.S.

    Real ID Act - Effective May 3, 2023

    Beginning in May, 2023, some state IDs will no longer permit you to board a domestic flight. Currently, some states are compliant, some have received extensions, and some are not compliant. Click here to see the status of your state. If your state license is not compliant, you can use a passport in lieu of a valid state ID.

    Note: The federal government has extended the deadline to May 3, 2023 for domestic airline passengers to secure a Real ID driver's license for use as identification at the airport. Travelers without a verified license or ID card will also have the option of showing other identity documents, such as a passport or military ID to board a plane.

    If you are a citizen of another country traveling internationally, you should contact an embassy or consulate of the U.S. to determine what travel documentation is necessary. You may also log on to the U.S. State Department's Internet site by clicking here.

    If you are traveling by air to join and/or depart from this tour within the U.S., please read the section entitled Airline Security Measures under Additional Information to determine what travel documentation is required.

    If you are a citizen of the U.S. or Canada who travels frequently between the two countries , you may benefit from the NEXUS program, which is a joint initiative between the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency and the Canada Border Services Agency that allows pre-screened and approved travelers faster processing at designated highway lanes in high-volume border crossing locations, at a NEXUS kiosk at several airports, and at certain marine reporting locations in the Great Lakes and Seattle regions. For further information, you may log on to the Nexus Internet website by clicking here. Please note that longer stays abroad for any purpose may require additional travel documentation.

    We recommend that you make at least two photocopies of all the travel documents that you bring with you. Include copies of the photo page of your passport that contains the date of issuance, the date of expiration and your citizenship. Secure one set of copies in the safe in your room while traveling and leave one set behind with someone at home who will assist you in the event your documents are misplaced, lost or stolen.

    To facilitate Travel Requirements, destinations are increasingly utilizing online forms that require digital proof that you've successfully completed your submission (via an email, QR code, etc.) To ensure smooth travels and peace of mind, we strongly recommend all guests carry a personal smart phone and sign up for international data plans before traveling overseas.

    Note: For activities marked with an asterisk (*) in day-by-day descriptions, participation is at your own risk; a signed liability waiver will be required.

     

    TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN AS A GUARDIAN: If you are traveling as the guardian of a child/children, we strongly suggest that you carry a letter from both parents of the child authorizing emergency treatment in the event of illness or accident. For travel abroad, many foreign countries have specific entry requirements for children under 21 who are traveling internationally without BOTH parents. (These requirements are in response to the increased incidence of children being abducted and taken abroad.) PLEASE NOTE THAT TAUCK IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for the disruption of travel caused by improper documentation for children traveling without both parents.

    The deposit and the fees for the optional Protection Plan or Cancel Fee Waiver [CFW] coverage are due at time of booking.

    The deposit amount is $350 per person

     

    Final Payment:

    Final Payment is due to Tauck 60 days before departure for lands trips, and 120 days before departure for cruises and rail journeys. If your deposit was made by credit card, final payment will be automatic unless you opted out at time of booking. Bookings without full payment at this time may be subject to cancellation without notice.

    Travel Protection Plan

    Effective for plans purchased as of July 1, 2021:

     

    Tauck's Guest Protection provides you with cancellation protection before your journey begins as well as insurance benefits while you are traveling. Guest Protection includes the following:

     

    Cancellation Waiver – Provided by Tauck:

    Under Tauck's Cancellation Fee Waiver you can cancel your tour for ANY REASON up to the day before departure and receive a money-back refund (except in Extreme Circumstances*) on the land tour cost, based on your original method of payment.

    *Extreme Circumstances: In the event of an act of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorism, accident, natural disaster, outbreak of disease, or other event or circumstance beyond our control that contributes to or results in cancellation rates above our historical cancellation rates in the absence of such event or occurrence, Tauck reserves the right to issue a credit to you in lieu of a money-back refund, applicable to a future Tauck journey.

    Travel Insurance Benefits – Underwritten by United States Fire Insurance Company.

    • Trip Cancellation – If you must cancel your tour due to a covered reason, the plan provides coverage for the amount you paid for your travel arrangements. Since the non-insurance cancellation waiver takes care of the land package cancellation fees already, this benefit reimburses the airfare cancellation charges up to the value of your original airfare purchase.

    • Trip Interruption – If you have to interrupt your tour for covered reasons, the plan provides reimbursement for up to $5,000 to catch up to your tour or return home.

    • Travel Delay – Provides reimbursement for missed, prepaid travel arrangements if you are delayed by a common carrier, natural disaster, unannounced strike, or other reasons as cited in the plan.

    • Medical Expense – Reimburses covered medical expenses incurred in the event you become injured or sick during your trip. 

    • Baggage / Personal Effects Protection – Provides reimbursement in the event your luggage or personal effects are, lost, stolen, damaged or delayed during your trip.

    Worldwide Emergency Assistance Services – Provided by Carefree Travel Assistance; 24-hour emergency telephone assistance hotline for medical and travel related problems.

     

    The cost of Tauck's Guest Protection is: $349 per person

     

    This protection provides insurance coverage that applies only during the covered trip. You may have coverage from other sources that provides you with similar benefits but may be subject to different restrictions depending upon your other coverages. You may wish to compare the terms of this policy with your existing life, health, home and automobile policies. If you have any questions about your current coverage, call your insurer, insurance agent or broker.

    This optional Guest Protection must be requested at time of booking and fee must be included with initial payment. Fees are based on costs as of July 1, 2021, and are subject to change. Details will be provided with written confirmation of your tour reservation. Guest Protection does not protect travel agent commissions. Reimbursements will be made according to original method of payment. The amount of any refund shall be reduced by any recoveries obtained by you from any third parties.

    The Guest Protection plan waives cancellation fees outlined below, provided we are notified of cancellation before your tour departs. Tour cancellation fees are waived regardless of reason, without written notice, and Tauck will refund land tour cost.

    To obtain your state-specific Certificate of Insurance that contains the complete terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the certificate, visit affinitytravelcert.com/docs/TACGPPDOM.

     

    If You Have To Cancel

    If you cancel within 10 days of initial deposit

    Within the first 10 days after you place your initial deposit, you may cancel your reservation for any reason with no cancellation fees.

    If you cancel more than 10 days after initial deposit

    Regardless of reason, cancellations result in costly charges from our travel and hotel providers covering penalties and fees incurred by canceling confirmed bookings. These fees vary from tour to tour. Therefore, the following fees apply.

     


    Cancellation Fees with Tauck's Guest Protection Plan:

    Loss of Guest Protection fee, per person

     

    Cancellation Fees without Tauck's Guest Protection Plan:

    60 days or more before departure = $350 per person

    59-8 days before departure = $600 per person

    7-1 days before departure = $900 per person

     

    Time of cancellation will be when notice is received in our Wilton Woods, CT office.

    In the event of an unforeseen circumstance beyond our control, Tauck reserves the right to amend the cancellation terms outlined herein.

    Note: All Guests, regardless of residency, who book a Tauck journey have the option of purchasing the Cancellation Fee Waiver provided by Tauck in the event they need to cancel their trip after making their reservations.

    The national park lodges do not have televisions or Internet hook-ups, so bring along a good book to read!

    Following is a list of recommended items to pack for your journey:

    • Casual daytime wear – shorts, slacks, long and short-sleeved shirts
    • Optional: Jacket and tie for men
    • Optional: Casually elegant evening wear for ladies

    Health, Safety and Mobility

    Tauck Care and Global Response

    Keeping our guests safe and secure has always been of paramount importance at Tauck. While we cannot predict or prevent events outside of our control, we have learned to expect the unexpected. In fact, we've planned for it and have safeguards, protocols and teams in place to deal with any eventualities. You'll travel with a comprehensive, built-in support system that starts with the care and local knowledge of our Tauck Directors and extends to our network of partners around the world, including hoteliers and transportation companies.

    Our Global Response Team stands ready to respond to situations around the world. Over the past two decades, they have successfully led us through a variety of challenges around the world, from weather events, high and low water on rivers, work stoppages and more. We are well prepared for Covid. We provide assurance and comfort in knowing that help is readily available if and when it's ever needed.

     

    Enhanced Covid Protocols:

    Tauck has worked closely with our supplier partners around the world to deliver the comfort and safety you expect. To learn more about the enhanced protocols we have put in place for Covid, please visit: tauck.com/travel-and-health/tauck-protocols.

    HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS

    If you have a medical condition that might limit your participation in activities, please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice and notify us as soon as possible, if you have not already done so. We will advise your Tauck Director accordingly.

    Please check with your health insurance provider to determine whether you are covered while traveling. If you will not be covered under your current policy, we strongly suggest that you arrange for adequate coverage while on tour.

     

    VACCINATIONS

    Visit our COVID-19 Travel Requirements page to learn about Tauck's universal vaccination requirement and destination-specific COVID policies.

    If you are a resident of another country traveling to or within the U.S., we suggest that contact your physician, the public health service in your area, or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to obtain information regarding vaccinations and medications for vaccine-preventable diseases and other diseases for which you might be at risk when you reach your destination in the U.S. The Travelers' Health Section of the CDC operates a 24-hour "Travelers' Health Hotline" at 800-232-4636 (toll-free in the U.S.). You may also log on to the CDC website by clicking here.

     

    MOBILITY

    To enjoy this tour, you should be in reasonably good health. Our journeys are active adventures which may include considerable walking on uneven terrain, involve stairs and steep inclines, touring at high elevations and visiting remote areas in newly developing ecotourism destinations, frequently in warm weather. It is important that you have sturdy, comfortable and worn-in walking shoes. Hiking boots are recommended for the hiking portions of this tour. We will also be bicycling, rafting and wildlife viewing, so shoes with a heel, water shoes, long pants as well as shorts and hats may be of use.

    Some of the excursions on this tour are:

    • Whitewater rafting on the Snake River, the journey is roughly 2 hours and requires stepping in and out of an inflatable raft 
    • A bicycle excursion along mostly flat paved roads that is 90mins in length.

    This tour spends two nights at an altitude of 6,800 feet at Jackson Lake Lodge and four nights at 7,800 feet in Yellowstone National Park. Those with heart conditions or lung ailments should consult their physician before traveling. It is important to drink plenty of water and avoid any strenuous exercise throughout all high altitude travel. If you have any concerns about the altitude we urge you to speak with your physician before your departure.

    PLEASE NOTE: We regret that this Tauck itinerary cannot accommodate wheelchairs or motorized scooters. Likewise, we regret that we're unable to provide individual assistance to guests with walking difficulties or other personal needs. The responsibility of the Tauck Director who accompanies your trip is to ensure that the larger group enjoys a relaxing and informative journey, and he or she cannot be relied upon to provide ongoing individual assistance to any one guest. Guests requiring such individualized assistance must be accompanied by an able-bodied companion who can provide it.

    Certain activities on the tour will require a liability waiver signature before participation. This liability waiver will include an assumption of risk, release and indemnification by you.

    While drinking water is generally safe at all our hotels, bottled water will be available wherever the local water is not fit to drink. We also provide bottled water on the mini coaches.

     

    SPECIAL DIETARY REQUESTS

    The restaurants, hotels, caterers and numerous other partners we work with all do their best to accommodate special dietary requests from Tauck guests. However, given the diverse nature of those food providers (from small wineries to grand hotels to world-famous restaurants in more than 70 countries worldwide), some of our partners are better able than others to accommodate such requests. We therefore cannot guarantee that all dietary requests can be accommodated at every meal. Also, please note that where dietary requests can be accommodated, choices will frequently be limited.


    SMOKING

    All park accommodations are non-smoking.


    Weather and Travel Gear

    WEATHER

    Spring & Fall: Daytime temperatures range from the 30s to the 60s (0 to 20C) with overnight lows in the teens to single digits (-5 to -20C). Snow is common in the Spring and Fall with regular accumulations of 12" in a 24 hour period. At any time of year, be prepared for sudden changes. Unpredictability, more than anything else, characterizes Yellowstone's weather. Always be equipped with a wide range of clothing options. Be sure to bring a warm jacket and rain gear even in the summer.

    Summer: Daytime temperatures are often in the 70s (25C) and occasionally in the 80s (30C) in lower elevations. Nights are usually cool and temperatures may drop below freezing at higher elevations. Thunderstorms are common in the afternoons.

    To read about current weather conditions, we suggest you log on to the Internet website, noaa.gov, by clicking here.

     

    TRAVEL GEAR

    Please refer to the Necessary Gear website at {necessarygear.com} as one option available to you for renting and purchasing apparel, PPEs, and other items appropriate for your journey.

    Reading List

    We have compiled a reading list of recommended books to give you more information about the destinations you will be traveling to on your upcoming journey!

    You can view the reading list here.

    Air Information and Luggage Restrictions

    AIRFARE: Airfare to and from this destination is not included in the journey cost. If purchasing your air elsewhere, it is very important to provide us with your confirmed arriving and departing flight information no later than 3 weeks before your arrival date. Flight information can be submitted to Tauck (or verified, if you've already provided it) in the My Account section of Tauck.com.

    TAUCK AIRPORT TRANSFERS are included at the start and end of the journey between the airport and the Tauck hotel. Airport transfers are available for any pre tour or post tour hotel stays immediately consecutive to the tour, providing flight information is received in the Tauck office no later than three weeks in advance. Details on locating your transfer upon arrival to the tour start city will be included in your final documents.

    AIRLINES and CHECKED LUGGAGE: Due to space limitations during your Tauck journey, we ask that you please limit your checked luggage to one average-size suitcase per person. Besides complying with the Tauck restriction noted above, you should also be sure to research and comply with all airline baggage restrictions relating to your flights to and from your Tauck journey. Airlines have become much more strict in enforcing size and weight limits in recent years, and are free to revise luggage policies without notice. Researching and complying with airline luggage restrictions is the responsibility of the guest, and Tauck cannot be held responsible for any costs or disruptions to travel caused by the failure to research and comply with airline policies. PLEASE NOTE that if you are booked on a tour that includes on-tour flights, the checked luggage weight restrictions for these flights may be lower than the weight restrictions for your international flights.


    Checked Luggage – General

    Due to space restrictions, we ask that you please limit your checked luggage to one suitcase per person weighing no more than 50 pounds (23 kg) and with overall dimensions (length + width + height) not exceeding 62 inches (158 cm).

    Besides complying with the Tauck restriction noted above, you should also be sure to research and comply with all airline baggage restrictions relating to your flights to and from your Tauck journey. Airlines have become much more strict in enforcing size and weight limits in recent years, and luggage exceeding airline standards for size or weight may result in expensive overage fees or other consequences.

    Airlines are free to revise luggage policies without notice, and certain airlines have different baggage allowances for different classes of service. Researching and complying with airline luggage restrictions is the responsibility of the guest, and Tauck cannot be held responsible for any costs or disruptions to travel caused by the failure to research and comply with airline policies.

    Tauck luggage tags will be provided by your Tauck Director on Day 1 of your itinerary. Please do not attach a Tauck luggage tag to any carry-on items, as the Tauck tags designate luggage that is to be handled and transferred by ground operators and hotel staff during your journey.

    Carry-on Luggage - General

    Although oversize bags and wheeled, carry-on luggage are popular for airline travel, they are often not convenient or appropriate for motor coach travel or for many on-tour flights. Most modern sightseeing motor coaches offer limited space for numerous or larger items. Space under seats or in the overhead rack is typically small, and designed to accommodate items like coats, hats, purses, and small camera bags, etc.

    For your day-to-day travel while on tour, we recommend that you limit your hand luggage to a small, soft-sided carry-on piece, and that you bring only those items you need handy during the day such as make-up, medications, cameras, film, etc. Items too large to fit under the motor coach seat or on the overhead rack must be stored in the luggage bays beneath the motor coach, and may be inaccessible during daytime travel.

    This was our best trip ever! Not only because of the beauty and Yellowstone and the Tetons but also because of our guide. His knowledge was exceptional, his attention to details made this trip wonderful! The unique experiences like visiting the home place of Olaus & Mardy Murie and the Snake River Ranch made this trip exceptional.

    Most Memorable Moment:


    Tauck always books the finest. In the National Park this is equivalent to Holiday Inn so don't be surprised. I brought twice as many clothes as necessary. Very casual; resort casual is overdressed. Think jeans and hoodies. Never wore shorts for trip starting Aug 21. Happy to have had rain poncho, gloves, and binoculars.

    Most Memorable Moment:

    Rafting; got uber wet. They supply wet suits but I wore a fleece and poncho. Best of all was the visit to the Hartmann's, a photographer who shared his near death experience with bears while shooting owls. Such a great experience hearing his stories. And then there's the Grand Geyser, not as predictable as Old Faithful but OMG!
