Jackson, Wyo., Aug. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilderness Ventures, the longest running and most experienced adventure travel program offering teen summer camps, gives families the chance to explore two of the most treasured national parks in the U.S.---Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park--on their unique Family Adventures. In addition to offering their worldwide teen adventure tours every year, Wilderness Ventures also offers these annual Family Adventures as a way to give families exclusive access and a unique perspective on these popular parks.
Based in Jackson, Wyoming, Wilderness Ventures has led teens on adventures through Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and beyond for 40 years. When the company was established in 1973, they secured exclusive operating licenses in America's most spectacular national parks and national forest areas. Because Wilderness Ventures still holds operating licenses in these places today, they offer travelers an unparalleled opportunity to explore remote wilderness areas that they would not have access to in other programs. On these Family Adventures, Wilderness Ventures offers families the chance to uncover 'hidden gems' in the parks as well as giving them a chance to participate in 'not to miss' park activities.
This family adventure tour blends outdoor adventure, breathtaking landscapes, western culture, and lessons in the history of the American West. Guests of the tour spend days hiking the beautiful areas of Yellowstone, exploring the geothermal wonders of Mammoth Hot Springs and enjoying accommodation at the iconic Old Faithful Inn. Other highlights include a one of a kind wildlife viewing and kayaking trip on Yellowstone Lake, an experience that Wilderness Ventures has special operating privileges for. Participants also have the chance to visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center and photograph spectacular wildlife in Lamar Valley---also known as the "Serengeti of America".
Families also have the chance to take a relaxing, spectacular float trip on the Snake River where they can see some of the country's most famous landscapes captured by famous photographer, Ansel Adams. Other highlights include horseback riding and bicycling through Grand Teton National Park, an exhilarating whitewater rafting trip through Snake River Canyon, an exploration of charming Jackson Hole, and much more. Family Adventures are designed for families with children aged 8 and older. For more information about Wilderness Ventures annual Family Adventures, visit www.wildernessventures.com .
