Wyoming, known as the Cowboy State, has wild West history, scenic plains, towering mountains, and western hospitality. There are many ways to explore the nation's least populated state, including wagon train tours, much like the pioneers of old.
Home of Grand Tetons National Park, the western corner of Wyoming has the majestic and jagged Grand Teton Mountains. Hidden Trails offers multi-day adventures into the Grand Tetons via wagon train. With all meals, group camp gear, and guides, the company offers all inclusive tours for the adventurous traveler. The Grand Tetons are an area rich with wildlife. Watch for grizzly bears, elk, bison, big horn sheep, prong horn and white tail deer, and dozens of bird species, from water fowl to raptors.
Spirit Rider Wagon Tours offers trips out of Buffalo, Wyoming. Offerings include day trips, corporate team building, equine assistance teaching, and custom corporate and business trips. Buffalo has wide sweeping plains and rolling grasslands.
