Family American West

Howdy buckaroos and welcome to the great American West, land of vast spaces, grand national parks and rustic cowboy ranches. With a barrel load of entertainment and activities available – plus some seriously cool farms and ranches to stay in – our team of travel experts can take the reins and create that perfect tailored luxury family holiday for a darn tootin’ good time.

One of the most iconic places to visit in the area - and an absolute must - is Yellowstone National Park. Situated (mostly) in Wyoming, the world's first national park features alpine rivers, hot springs, luxuriant forests, impressive canyons and erupting geysers - including the famous Old Faithful. During your time in Yellowstone, immerse yourself in a whole range of fabulous family activities. Discover the park while hiking, biking or horse riding; and thrill the little ones with exciting ranger activities, including the chance to become a junior ranger. In the evenings, camp outside, roast marshmallows and yarn the hours away a roaring fire.

If the great outdoors continues to call, what better way to answer than a fun family trip on the Tribal Park Loop in Monument Valley. This arid rusty-red landscape has featured in numerous Westerns as well as forming the backdrop for more recent Hollywood films. Photograph the massive sandstone buttes, take an off-the-beaten-track tour with a Native American guide and spend the night stargazing at the Milky Way, waking up in time for that picture-perfect sunrise.

For the ultimate family adventure in the American West, experience the traditional life of a cowboy while staying on a working ranch. The whole family can enjoy getting wild with horseback riding and cattle drives, hiking and fishing, plus a whole range of other activities, from adrenaline-pumping rafting in rapid waters to getting hands on and mending fences.
