Itinerary details

Montana

1 nightBILLINGS

Fly into Denver and catch your connecting flight to Billings, in south Montana. This city will be your gateway to Yellowstone National Park, but first you can relax here before you hit the road the following morning. After a good night’s sleep at Best Western Plus ClockTower Inn downtown, pick up your SUV, pack up your suitcases and begin the first phase of your road trip. As you drive out of Billings towards Yellowstone you’ll hit Beartooth Pass, a winding road cut into the side of the Beartooth Mountains along the Montana-Wyoming border. This is one of the most scenic drives in the US, a long road of switchbacks through the stunning mountain landscape.

Yellowstone National Park

3 nightsYELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

After a spectacular three-and-a-half-hour drive from Billings, you’ll arrive in Yellowstone National Park– the first national park in the world. A beautiful landscape of soaring snow-capped peaks, glassy lakes, emerald-green pine trees and steaming-hot vibrantly-coloured geysers, Yellowstone has a wealth of hikes, trails and activities through which you can experience this stunning national park in all its glory. A land relatively untouched, Yellowstone provides a glimpse of how the pioneers might have found this sublime landscape when they first started moving westwards. Now, bison, bears, wolves and elk still roam across the land as they would have done hundreds of years ago. Yellowstone Cabins are located right in the national park and from here you can spend the next three days discovering the sheer magnificence of this vast region.

After spending three days exploring Yellowstone, drive for a couple of hours down to Jackson, just outside Grand Teton National Park. Here you can rest your feet for two nights at Amangani, the most luxurious five-star resort in the northern national parks. This Aman hotel resides in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Grand Teton National Park and has views across the prairies and mountainous scenery that rolls through western Wyoming.

Salt Lake City

1 nightSALT LAKE CITY

After a couple of days in your luxury retreat, climb back in your SUV and drive for about four hours down into Utah to Salt Lake City. This historic city was founded as a centre for Mormonism and today it retains strong links with its past. You’ll spend one night here as a stopover in the Grand America hotel, which has stunning views of the mountains that surround Salt Lake. If you fancy getting out and about, there are many Latter Day Saints sites around the town that you can visit to get a taste of the city’s heritage; Salt Lake Temple is particularly stunning.

Arches National Park

2 nightsARCHES NATIONAL PARK

Leaving Salt Lake, drive for three and a half hours eastwards until you reach Moab and Arches National Park. So-named after the amount of naturally-formed archways– numbering over 2000– Arches National Park is a desert region in the east of Utah. The sandstone rock formations have a backdrop of snowy peaks that loom up behind the dusty desert terrain. Sorrel River Ranch is located in Moab, just outside the national park, and is a good base for exploring Arches. You can hike, bike or horse-ride around the national park, whitewater raft or kayak down the Colorado River, or even go on a hot air balloon ride across the Utah plains.
