Day 1 – Rapid City

Welcome to Rapid City! Your tour starts at 9 am with a group meeting followed by a short drive to Badlands National Park. Have your camera handy to capture the sweeping prairie grass plains and dramatic rocky pinnacles. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope, chirping prairie dogs and American bison. We’ll take a short hike on one of the scenic trails before continuing to the nearby Wall Drug Store, drawing millions of visitors every year. It’s hard to believe this store won over customers in its early days by offering something as simple as free ice water. Take some time to wander around and grab lunch (at own expense).

Included Activities: Badlands National Park hike and scenic drive

Meals: There are no meals included on this day.

Day 2 – Rapid City

Drive to Custer State Park and wander through the State Game Lodge, a stately residence which was built in 1920 and has played host to several presidents. Then it’s time to jump in a jeep and go wild on a Buffalo safari.

Day 3 – Sheridan

It’s an early start for the drive to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. After a stop along the way for lunch, join your Crow Nation Guide for a three-hour tour which provides an Apsaalooke perspective on the conflict. With a tribal historian at your side, traverse the battlefield and learn how Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho warriors defeated the US Army on the Greasy Grass at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. After the tour, drive to Sheridan where you might like to visit the Sheridan Inn for a drink and a chance to learn about the history of Buffalo Bill who auditioned new members for his “Wild West” show from the front porch of this historic inn.

Other highlights include the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone with its geysers along the north and south loop.

Day 6 – Yellowstone Wolf Tracking / Bozeman

You’re up before the sun this morning, but we promise it’s for good reason. We’re heading back into Yellowstone to join a wolf-tracking expedition with an experienced naturalist guide. There’s no better place than Yellowstone to see these magnificent animals in the wild. Your guide tracks the movements and behaviour of Yellowstone wildlife almost daily and knows the best places to find the animals. There will be top-of-the-line binoculars and high-powered spotting scopes for each person, so no one will miss out. After lunch, travel to Bozeman where your adventure ends at around 4pm.
