Educational Groups

Wind River Tours first began offering tours to the Yellowstone area in 2001. Since then we have evolved to offer tours throughout the American Southwest and Rocky Mountain region. From rafting Yellowstone snowmelt to hiking the Grand Canyon, we will treat your students to an experience of a lifetime. For a complete list of current tour offerings, contact jim@windrivertours.com .

All Wind River educational tours are guided by professional licensed teachers or college instructors. Students from the primary grades through high school are engaged in appropriately challenging, but fun activities throughout the tour. Planned activities include daily exploration of archaeology, ecology, history, geology, or Native American culture. Students and chaperones will also enjoy many exciting outdoor activities, such as scenic river floats, white water rafting, horseback riding, touring world renown western museums, watching a cowboy rodeo, visiting a water park fed by the world's largest hot springs, going a on fossil hunt, or viewing wildlife.

Accommodations & Meals
We offer hotel-based tours and camping tours. Hotel-based educational tours will enjoy group-friendly hotels that are well versed in the needs and desires of both students and teachers when traveling. Outside national parks, we stay in "AAA"-approved properties that typically offer double queen rooms, a heated swimming pool, game room and restaurant directly on the premises. National park lodging varies from modern cabins with private baths to historic park lodges. Meals on a hotel tour generally are in restaurants, but may also include national park lodges, catered picnics and a chuckwagon cookout. At the conclusion of the tour, your final night is complimentary, with free breakfast and shuttle service to the airport the following morning. From the time we greet your group at the airport to our departing farewell, our educational hotel tours are an excellent value!

Camping tours are the most economical means for a school group to travel. Wind River Adventure Tours use exclusively expedition-quality Hammerhead II's and III's, dome tents made by Mountain Hardware. Guests are provided all of the camping gear they will need for a successful and enjoyable outdoor experience. Each student is supplied with a quality inflatable and/or closed cell sleeping pad, a day pack, a water bottle, and binoculars for scenic and wildlife viewing. Camping tour participants are expected to help share in camping duties, such as setting up and taking down tents, preparing meals and maintaining a clean and safe camp site. Camping tours may include at least one meal per day in a restaurant, with breakfast and supper usually prepared at camp. Generally speaking, camping tours enjoy certain features of the national parks that hotel tours cannot--campfires, ranger programs and sleeping under the stars! Camping tour guests can also look forward to a complimentary 1-night stay in a hotel on their final night, with breakfast and shuttle service to the airport provided FREE of charge the following morning.
