Took a family vacation to Yellowstone last month with Austin Adventures and had the most amazing time! Kasey and Zach were awesome guides who really went above and beyond to assure my family enjoyed every minute as well as maximized our potential to experience as much as possible in the 4 days we were there; I wish we could have stayed longer! We left Yellowstone feeling that this was our best family vacation ever! Thank you Zach, Kasey, and Austin Adventures! Have a great summer.

Just got back from the Yellowstone/Tetons trip, our first with Austin Adventures, but definitely not our last. Our guides Carrie and James set the perfect tone and kept our spirits up despite some rainy days. I highly recommend this tour company and look forward to more adventures with them!

Recently completed our first trip with Austin Adventures. We experienced a fantastic adventure in Glacier National Park - biking, hiking, and rafting. Our guides, Carrie and Porter were outstanding. The attention to detail throughout the trip was extraordinary.

Itinerary

Day 1: Billings

Day 2: Red Lodge

Day 3: Cooke City

Day 4: Lamar Valley

Day 5: Cody

Day 6: Billings

Night 1: Northern Hotel

This Four-Star hotel is located in the heart of downtown Billings.  Reopened in early 2013, the Northern invites you to relax in the luxuriously-renovated guest rooms featuring warm, contemporary interiors by award-winning designer, Mitch Thompson. With 24-hour room service and unique in-room amenities (do you like aquariums?), the hotel has dotted every I and crossed every T in creating a luxurious Western experience.

Night 2: Pollard Hotel

Steeped in history, The Pollard is located in the former mining town of Red Lodge at the edge of the Rocky Mountains and is the destination hotel near Yellowstone’s east entrance. Open the French doors in your suite to a private balcony, or relax by the fire with a rich coffee in The Gallery, or appreciate a single malt scotch and a good book in the History Room.

Nights 3 & 4: Alpine Motel

Located in Cooke City right near the Northeast entrance to Yellowstone, the Alpine Motel's rustic charm mirrors the stunning scenery surrounding it.

Night 5: Irma Hotel

Step back in time into the old west of today at the Irma Hotel, a place the famous hunter and showman Buffalo Bill Cody called “a gem.” Here, you can stay in historic rooms that housed some of the most iconic figures of the West: Frederic Remington, Annie Oakley, and Calamity Jane. Fancy enough for royalty and comfortable enough for cowboys and cowgirls, the Irma Hotel exemplifies the spirit of Cody, Wyoming!

Accomodations

The Pollard Hotel

Hospitality, and history—this is The Pollard, a beautifully restored historic hotel near Yellowstone National Park. Beautiful woodwork, linen napkins, a menu for all tastes and an enviable wine list await you in the dining room. Open the doors in your suite to a private balcony, or take a rich coffee into The Gallery and relax by the fire, or appreciate a fine single malt scotch and a good book in the History Room. The hotel that served Buffalo Bill Cody, Calamity Jane and other western legends was completely restored in 1994. Since that time, graceful comfort combined with modern amenities and attentive staff have earned The Pollard national recognition and many awards.

Irma Hotel

Visit the Irma Hotel – a place that Buffalo Bill Cody called "a gem" just outside of Yellowstone National Park. He built the hotel in 1902 and named it for his daughter, Irma. Today, you can stay in historic rooms that housed some of the most famous personalities the world ever has known, including Frederic Remington, Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane. You can even stay in Buffalo Bill's private suite. There are a host of other historic or non-historic rooms, all with up-to-date amenities and air conditioning.
