Journey to where the Wild West begins… but keep your eyes peeled for outlaws!

Be enchanted by never-ending blue skies and radiant starlight while on our 39 Day Big Sky & Rocky Mountain High Caravan. This picturesque area is home to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, and the Rocky Mountains. You will experience Mother Nature at her finest on this spectacular display of bounty and plenty.

From the Black Hills National Forest to a Mount Rushmore Evening Light Show, South Dakota is awash in incredible beauty. We enjoy two days in the legendary Wild West town of Deadwood, location of Boot Hill and final resting place for Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane before stopping at Devils Tower, Americas first National Monument, where Close Encounters of the Third Kind was filmed.

We travel to Buffalo and Cody, WY, areas of the country that have been a significant part of American History. Buffalo was named by Time Magazine as one of the most charming communities in the Rocky Mountains. The majestic beauty and natural wonder of Yellowstone National Park and the Tetons will astound us as we enjoy seven unforgettable days grasping the sheer beauty of what these two great phenomenons give us.

Heading into Utah and Colorado, we are surrounded by some of the world’s most colorful scenery every minute and mile of your trip. Each mile capitalizes on the beauty and splendor of the region, giving you many Kodak moments. You are in for a special treat, as you ride the Durango & Silverton Railroad, Canyonlands by Night Boat Cruise, Royal Gorge Aerial Tram and Pikes Peak Cog Railway. This trip ends with five exciting days in Colorado Springs. This is a tour for the senses, and you will remain forever changed. Don’t miss out on this great tour!

Note: We use buses whenever possible, but due to the nature of this trip and the areas we traverse, it is more practical to use your own vehicle or ride share in a few areas as your interests or desires may differ from the next person. This allows you to spend more or less time at some locations depending on your individual desires. This also gives us the opportunity to enjoy many highlights we would other-wise miss, since buses are not allowed.

Our knowledgeable staff will guide and make sure you see all important places and enjoy the many historic sites.

Testimonials

  • “We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the lasting friendships we made.”
    George & Bev Boykin
  • “It exceeded my expectations!”
    George & Kathy Snyder
  • “We enjoyed looking at the photos. I agree regarding the description of the Kaori Wildlife Sanctuary stop. In fact I would rate it as the high point of the entire Queensland / New Zealand tour. I am surprised to see other tours, even tours billed as "wildlife tours", that don't even make that stop.”
    Norm Day
  • “Thank you for making all our dreams come true. Looking forward to all the new adventures with you next year.”
    Neal & Cassie Allred
  • “Very nice campgrounds. Our Wagonmasters and Tailgunners made the experience very enjoyable!”
    Ed & Marjorie McMahon
  • “Four star, a wonderful time, we did so much, saw so much and made at least three couples as life-long friends.”
    Monte & Linda Toon

  • “Will recommend this to many of our friends. So well done. The best of the best was seen at all of the stops.”
    Wayne & Wendy Mikkelsen
  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and the Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.
