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. We’ll meet you and the rest of our excited group at the airport and make the short drive to our first campground, tucked into the Gros Ventre mountains of Grand Teton National Park. The next morning we’ll wake up early for a fortifying breakfast before embarking on a fun day of whitewater rafting down the Snake River. We’ll grow closer as a team during this exciting day’s paddle as we work together to shoot thrilling rapids under the guidance of local instructors. Later that afternoon, we’ll learn more about the balance of fish ecology with an informative visit to a local fish hatchery. That night, we’ll return to our 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, we’ll engage in a special two day fly fishing course tailored to the knowledge and experience level of each member of the group. We’ll learn basic and advanced casting techniques, water reading, nymphing, how to “play” trout and other exciting skills. Of course, we’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of fish biology and the surrounding ecosystem that supports this fun sport. After our exciting course, we’ll be ready to apply our skills to the backcountry.

Day 6-10

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

Day 11-14

Our next trip takes us to one of Wyoming’s pristine wilderness areas. Entering the wilderness allows us 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. We’ll carry everything we need together as a team, cook our own tasty backcountry meals, camp in beautiful alpine meadows and celebrate the day’s catch each evening. At the end of our four days in the wilderness, we’ll emerge as a fully formed and absolutely thrilled team — returning to Jackson Hole for our float trip.

Day 15-16

As a culminating activity to what has been a fantastic journey (and as a real treat), we’ll reunite with our 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 — and we’ll also enjoy the chance to catch up and brag about the catches of our journey. That evening, we’ll enjoy our very special final group banquet in the Old West town of Jackson Hole, taking these last moments together to celebrate each others’ accomplishments. The next morning, we’ll depart from the airport having grown as individuals and as a team through the tremendous magic of our shared experience.
