A 14 day adventure to the REAL America

Start Jackson, WY |Finish Kalispell, MT

Discover the REAL America

The diverse and intriguing American states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming epitomise the REAL America. Year-round adventure, awe-inspiring
scenery, majestical mountains, shimmering lakes, expansive prairies and tumbling waterfalls await. Not to mention legendary history and heritage, real-life cowboys,
rodeos and ranches, American Indians, iconic National Parks and monuments, plus more wildlife than people. The REAL America has it all.

No REAL America adventure is complete without a visit to the world’s first national park. Yellowstone boasts the world’s most extensive area of geothermal activity,
harbouring more than 10,000 geysers, hot springs and mud pots; the most famous being Old Faithful. A mountain wildland, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of
bison and elk, the park is the core of one of the last, nearly intact, natural ecosystems in the Earth’s temperate zone.

The REAL America is blessed with an unspoiled, natural beauty that beckons visitors from around the world. Take time to discover it yourself.
