If you have long dreamed of visiting Yellowstone, this scenario is just for you!
Your trip begins with Salt Lake City, visit the National Museum of Utah, explore the sights of the city and discover the local cuisine.
The scenic route runs through a worth visiting nature reserve, which offers the great opportunity to see the largest herd of elks.
Visit one of the most beautiful natural parks, Grand Teton. Enjoy walks in virgin nature and the tranquility of untouched lands here.
One of the main points of the route is the legendary Yellowstone Park! This is a huge caldera, hidden under the ground. Geysers and hot springs bursting out of the ground, and you have a great opportunity to see this natural wonder for yourself.
Please note, that the route is seasonal: the main part of the trip lies in national parks, and the roads, cafés, hotels and other facilities there are fully open only from May to September. In case you travel in April or September, please, be aware, that the majority of the venues might be closed.

Let's Hit the Road!

Now, the moment you've been waiting for. It's time to hit the road! Check you've got everything. Before the departure, go to the store and buy some food for the day because there could be no cafés on your way. Get to Jackson by nightfall. This is an intermediate stop on the way to the park. A small city, but an important part of the history of Wyoming.
