Day 1-2

Arrive into stunning Jackson Hole, Wyoming. From the moment you get off the plane, it’s clear that you’ve entered the country’s iconographic fly fishing destination. Your leaders will meet you and the rest of your excited trip mates at the airport and you’ll make the short drive to your first campground, tucked into the Gros Ventre mountains of Grand Teton National Park. You’ ll learn how to set up camp, play games, and get to know each other that first night. The next morning, you’ll wake up early for a fortifying breakfast before embarking on a fun day of whitewater rafting down the Snake River. You’ll grow closer as a team during this day’s exciting paddle as you work together to shoot thrilling rapids under the guidance of local instructors. After rafting, you’ll head into the town of Jackson to visit the Jackson National Fish Hatchery to learn more about the fish in this beautiful area. That night, you’ll head to your new campsite to cook a hearty evening meal and crawl into bed anticipating the next morning’s catch.

Day 3-5

Teaming up with the world-famous Orvis fly fishing instructors, you and your group will engage in a special two-day fly fishing course tailored to the knowledge and experience level of each member of the group. You’ll learn basic and advanced casting techniques, water reading, nymphing, how to “play” trout and other exciting skills. Of course, you’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of fish biology and the surrounding ecosystem that supports this fun sport. After your exciting course, you’ll be ready to apply your skills to the backcountry.

Day 6-9

Moving north, you’ll migrate toward Yellowstone National Park, your next fishing and backpacking destination. As your backpacking begins, you’ll travel shorter distances at first, allowing time to learn important backcountry travel skills that go hand in hand with fishing. You’ll cover the basics like cooking skills, minimum impact camping, as well as map and compass skills. And of course, you’ll have ample time to gaze at the verdant alpine meadows, abundant wildlife, and to hunt for the infamous cutthroat which Yellowstone is so well known for. You will spend three days fishing the wilderness of Yellowstone, and are sure to catch more fish than you can count! After hiking out of the wilderness on our last day, you’ll head to town for some quick showers, laundry, and other preparations for your next backpacking trip.

Day 10-13

Your next excursion will take you to one of Wyoming’s most pristine wilderness areas. Entering the backcountry wilderness allows you and your group to access little-known and seldom-visited waters in pursuit of a larger and more bountiful catch. Of course, no experience can compare with the chance to travel under your own power between one backcountry fishing spot and the next. You’ll carry everything you need together as a team, cook your own tasty backcountry meals, camp in beautiful alpine meadows and celebrate the day’s catch each evening. At the end of your four days in the wilderness, you’ll emerge as a fully formed and absolutely thrilled team. From here, you’ll return to Jackson Hole for your float trip.

Day 14-16

Before heading back on the river, you’ll take a day to explore the iconic town of Jackson Hole. You’ll zip-line and do an aerial course, check out the shops, and see the sites. Then, as the culminating activity to what has been a fantastic journey (and as a real treat), you’ll reunite with your Orvis guides and spend the day drift-boating down the rushing waters of the Snake River. Of course, the Orvis guides know all of the best, most-fertile places to make the most of our time on the water. That evening, you’ll enjoy your very special final group banquet in Jackson Hole, taking these last moments together to celebrate each other’s accomplishments. The next morning, you’ll depart from the airport having grown as individuals and as a team through the tremendous magic of your shared experience.
