Yosemite National Park
Your nine-day adventure begins in Northern California amid the Giant Sequoias of Mariposa Grove. Experience the Old World European luxury of Chateau du Sureau. Next, arrive in Yosemite National Park. A private guide will lead you on hikes to Yosemite’s towering granite cliffs, dramatic waterfalls, and glacier-carved valleys.
The Grand Canyon
Then, board a private plane to the country’s most recognizable natural landmark, the Grand Canyon. Private hikes along the canyon rim and an exclusive flight-seeing tour over its stunning ridges reveal why this deep Colorado River gorge is often considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
From your luxury suite at Amangiri, set out on a private Colorado River Glen Canyon floating trip and Hummer ride to discover the soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, and sacred slot canyons of this ancient Navajo land. Your final evening is a horseback ride to Raven’s Nest for a private dinner and reception with a Navajo tribal elder.
Grand Teton National Park
Conclude your journey in Wyoming, flying via private jet to the legendary Amangani resort within the Jackson Hole valley. The region’s most exclusive accommodation, Amangani’s legendary chalet charm and five-star luxury create a delightful Jackson Hole retreat at the foot of the Grand Tetons.
Visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art in downtown Jackson. Trek through the pristine lakes and alpine terrain of Grand Teton National Park on a private wildlife safari. Jenny Lake is hands down one of the most picturesque spots for a picnic. A private sunset horseback ride promises incomparable views of the Teton Range, the National Elk Refuge, and downtown Jackson Hole.
This luxury North America adventure concludes with an incredible flight-seeing tour over Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Landing in West Yellowstone, embark on a full-day exploration of the mountain wild lands, bursting geysers, and iconic landmarks. Yellowstone National Park is home to Old Faithful and a veritable wonderland of geothermal activity and wildlife. Enjoy the perfect ending to your Yellowstone journey with a stop for a gourmet picnic.
