Our Northern Pioneer camping adventure brings you right to some of the best-known wilderness spots in the world, delivering an experience you won't soon forget! Take our alternative backpacker bus to experience the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Zion National Park!

Wake up in the Ruby Mountains of Northern Nevada and hike to the glacier-carved lakes of Lamoille Canyon, then unwind in one of our favorite hot springs. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, you'll have the option to raft the class III rapids of the Snake River, or take a self-guided hike beneath some of the most distinctive mountain peaks on earth.

At Grand Teton National Park, watch for elk and moose as you hike into Paintbrush Canyon, or stroll to the base of Hidden Falls. In Yellowstone, discover a wilderness so incredible it was named the world's first National Park in order to preserve it. Catch the spectacular eruptions of Old Faithful and other geysers, view Yellowstone Falls from Artist Point, and watch for bison grazing.
