In May 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set out on an amazing expedition across the Louisiana Territory.

Their harsh travels of unexplored lands secured them a place in history as two of the world’s greatest explorers, and we closely follow their travels on this 46 Day tour. We rendezvous in the historic town of St. Charles, Missouri where members of the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery expedition began their Historic Trip.

This trip is the most unique, complete and comprehensive Lewis and Clark Trail tour available and we assure you that we have included the best of all there is to see and do. The itinerary is great – check it out! It is loaded with historical sites, museums and points of interest – all related to the Lewis and Clark Historical Journey. We have organized this trip to help you understand the Lewis and Clark Expedition as much as possible and still take in most of the non-related exciting and interesting sights and activities along the way.

We visit Camp River Dubois, the starting point of the Expedition and attend the Lewis & Clark Heritage Days Festival. In Nebraska, we visit the Lewis & Clark Monument and Interpretive Center. We embark on a Lewis & Clark Riverboat Cruise in Bismarck, ND. We enjoy a Lewis & Clark Living History Performance in Washington, along with numerous other Lewis & Clark sites along the way. Our last stop in Warrenton, OR is the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment, where the expedition succeeded in reaching the Pacific Ocean.

Some of the other excursions we take are botanical gardens, a tour of the Budweiser Brewery, the Gateway Arch and Tram Ride in St. Charles, MO. We visit the World Famous Corn Palace in South Dakota and take a Deluxe Hells Canyon Jet Boat Cruise (including lunch, drinks and guide) in Washington. See the 620’ tall Multnomah Falls and Mount St. Helens in Oregon. There are numerous guided motorcoach tours so you can learn about the history of this area firsthand.

We want this vacation to be as comfortable and exciting as possible for you. We include many activities and meals which are at special places or unique to their areas. See that we didn’t leave any stones unturned. Don’t miss this great tour!

  • Regarding our 31-day Canadian Maritimes caravan Cindy and I would like to express how much we enjoyed the caravan with Rick & Sharon Gilbert and John & Sally Mincks. Both couples were outstanding and we would love to book any caravan they are involved with. We booked for the 2018 Big Sky caravan and hope you can assign one or both off them to that trip. We met many wonderful people and hope we have made some new life long friendships. We hope to meet up with Rick and Sharon at the Tampa RV show in January. The tour guides for our various bus tours were top notch, all added much information and interesting stories to the tour. Please give a big thanks to Roger in Quebec City, Roddie in PEI, Carolyn in Halifax and Paul on The Cabot Trail.
