THIS WILL BE YOU!
Marvel at a volcano's hidden power rising up in colorful hot springs, mudpots, and geysers. Explore mountains, forests, and lakes to watch wildlife and witness the drama of the natural world unfold. Yellowstone - established as the world's first national park in 1872 - is a nearly 3.500 sq.mile wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot. Mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It's also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.
But there's more to this tour than Yellowstone. We reach the park riding through Grand Teton NP which encompasses the Teton mountain range and the 4.000 meter high Grand Teton peak as well as Jackson Hole valley. On our way north we reach Glacier NP, a vast wilderness area in Montana's Rocky Mountains, with glacier-carved peaks and valleys running to the Canadian border. It's crossed by the mountainous Going-to-the-Sun Road, a masterpiece of mountain road engineering.
On the second half of the tour you'll get to enjoy the infamous Beartooth Hwy and a stay in Cody, once home town of Buffalo Bill. Shoot-outs, rodeos and ghost towns...
A few more mountain passes lead us west through Yellowstone NP once more before the journey reaches its end in Salt Lake City via Idaho's scenic byways. This is a fantastic tour through the states of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana with unparalleled scenary, finest motorcycle roads, delicious culinary experiences and as always nice places to rest our heads.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
- THREE NATIONAL PARKS / FOUR STATES
On this tour you will visit Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP and Glacier NP and travel through the states of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. The scenic factor on this tour is second to none as you can see in the displayed pictures on this page.
- GREAT HOTELS
We found some incredibly awesome places for you to overnight at. We'll get there after a great day's ride, check in and enjoy handing out together - each hotel has it's own unique setting and the category ranges from historic landmark hotels, mountain lodges and ranches to boutique hotels.
- CORNERS, TURNS AND BENDS
The tour has a great amount of twisty roads as well as seweral mountain passes with elevations up to, the most famous of all being Beartooth Highway in Wyoming and the alpine Going-to-the-Sun Road in Montana's Glacier NP.
As always we'll avoid riding freeways as much as possible and have scouted plenty of scenic byways in all four states that will make your heart beat faster. The route is stunningly beautiful and it seems we're being accompanied by sparkling rivers and lakes for at least 75% of the ride.
With a bit of luck you'll get to see buffalos, bears, wolves, moose, elk and an abundance of other animals which call Yellowstone and Glacier their home.
