About this itinerary

Driving distance: 480 Miles
Recommended travelling time: 9 Days
Recommended travel season: Summer
Utah's capital, Salt Lake City, has grown into a visitor destination for outdoor and cultural pursuits. Beyond Salt Lake City, follow the Snake River to explore Yellowstone National Park and get a taste of the Old West in nearby mountain towns.

Salt Lake City, Utah


Fly into Salt Lake City. Temple Square is the city's main attraction, dedicated to its founding religion, the Mormon church. Explore the free botanical gardens and arboretum at Red Butte Garden. Experience Utah's famous powdery snow at Wasatch National Forest, or venture on the high-speed bobsled ride at Utah Olympic Park (you might see Olympic athletes training). A visit to Great Salt Lake in the summer is a must; the water is so salty, you can float right on top.

Idaho Falls, Idaho

Three hours north of Salt Lake City, Idaho Falls offers visitors a chance to slow down. Take a walking tour to learn about the city's history and view buildings dating to the early 1900s. Explore downtown restaurants, pubs and shops, then walk along the paved pedestrian path of the Idaho Falls Greenbelt next to the picturesque Snake River. In the summer, the arts council hosts a popular outdoor concert series.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

It's about a two-hour drive from Idaho Falls to the southern portion of Yellowstone. The park is vast and has many activities, including camping, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, waterfalls, winter sports, fishing and horseback riding. A guided tour is advised for travellers looking to maximize their visit. The park is closed to automobile traffic from November through May, but snow vehicles are available. There are nine hotels inside Yellowstone, and two stay open during winter.

Jackson, Wyoming

The small town of Jackson in the Jackson Hole valley embraces a pioneer sensibility, evident in stagecoach tours, rodeos and heritage tours. The Town Square is famous for four large arches made from elk antlers collected at the nearby National Elk Refuge. In the winter, take a sleigh ride at the refuge to view the majestic elk. Skiing is popular in winter and rodeos, chuckwagon dinners and the evening 'shootout' are common summer activities. Fly out of Jackson airport.
