Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

20 of 21

Veteran guides focus on Yellowstone and Grand Teton's natural history on this overland driving trip. While staying in Yellowstone, participants assist in reversing the annual wear-and-tear from the park's 2.9 million visitors by painting historic cabins, mending flood-damaged sidewalks, and sanding and staining park picnic tables. Tauck World Discovery has led clients into U.S. national parks since 1926, and has contributed more than $1 million to the preservation of these treasures.

Trip Tip: At Yellowstone's Firehole River, don't miss the Grand Prismatic Spring's rising blue steam, which the first mountaineers recorded in historic journals dating to the early 1800s.

Luxury Level: Thanks to a sustained relationship with Yellowstone, Tauck guarantees hard-to-come-by, in-park accommodations. From Old Faithful Inn's 1913 East Wing, look out to Upper Geyser Basin, and dine at the preserve's 117-year-old Lake Yellowstone Hotel.

Tauck World Discovery; 800/788-7885; tauck.com; $2590, all-inclusive; May-Sept, 10 days.
