Journey West – The Adventure Awaits!
Get ready for a foot-stomping road trip through the Wild West! Feel the beats in Denver, cruise through Wyoming’s canyons, and let The Rockies serenade you. We’ll make a pitstop to witness the awe-inspiring Old Faithful in Yellowstone before hearing tales of Calamity Jane & Wild Bill Hickok in South Dakota. As we roll past Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, the adventure ramps up. Omaha, Nebraska, sets the stage for legends, and Kansas wraps it all up with prairie melodies. Join us for a music-fuelled journey where landscapes, legends, geysers, and unforgettable moments come together in perfect harmony!
DAY BY DAY TOUR ITINERARY
After arriving in Denver and checking into your hotel, your guide and driver will have a welcome meeting in the hotel so you can meet your fellow travellers.
This morning, we will wave goodbye to Denver and travel the short distance to Boulder Colorado. Boulder, nestled against the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, offers a delightful blend of cultural experiences, and culinary delights. We'll take a stroll along the historic Pearl Street Mall, and discover Boulder's unique mountain charm before heading for our next stop - the fantastic Cheyenne, Wyoming. Around the world, the very name Cheyenne conjures up images of cowboys, trains, and the great outdoors. Today's Cheyenne is all of that and more! Enjoy the Wild-West history in the unique downtown on our first night here!
It's another day of rodeo action and behind-the-chutes tours, trick riding and a wild-horse race. Visit the Native American Village, an old frontier town, a saloon, dancing, a chuck wagon cook-off, pancake breakfasts and an art show that carry through the frontier theme. A carnival midway, an air show, top-name entertainment, professional bull riding shows and several parades including antique carriages and automobiles are also on offer at Frontier Days.
Today in the self-proclaimed “Rodeo Capital of the World” we'll learn about all-things pioneer, in this spirited community that preserves its history and celebrates its position as a gateway to Yellowstone. Steer yourself to downtown’s Irma Hotel, built by Buffalo Bill himself. Catch The Wild Bunch reenacting a shootout in front of the hotel in summer, which is Cody’s most vibrant season. Take a Cody Trolley Tour to see the Buffalo Bill Reservoir, pioneer homes and the historic district. Stroll through Old Trail Town, which features 25 restored historic buildings just off the Yellowstone Highway. Then this evening, we'll visit the Cody Nite Rodeo which is a unique and thrilling event that offers visitors a taste of the authentic cowboy experience. Enjoy both seasoned professionals and amateur riders competing in various events, including bull riding, barrel racing, and team roping. We'll witness the bravery and athleticism of the riders as they take on the challenges of riding bucking broncos and fierce bulls, in this truly unforgettable experience that captures the essence of the American cowboy!
After breakfast today, we make our way to Billings, Montana via the Yellowstone National Park. You'll have plenty time to explore this small but busy town with a rich history this evening as we'll go out as a group to the vibrant downtown area of Billings.
