Paddle yourself through the majesty of Grand Teton National Park and experience an authentic adventure into America's wild west.

We very much enjoyed the guides. We also enjoyed the company of the other people on the trip. It was a joy to have a large gear bag to put on the zodiac so that our camping was extra comfortable. The leisure afforded by having the guides cook and wash dishes made for a trip of "rustic elegance." The personnel in your office who helped us select a trip appropriate for our family were very helpful.
