Why O.A.R.S. in Wyoming?

Despite its remote location, Wyoming is as big and beautiful as any adventure vacation destination in the U.S. and O.A.R.S. offers you something most other Wyoming adventure travel companies can't give you—a unique way of experiencing iconic Wild West icons such as Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.


See the best of these two National Parks on our 5- or 6-day, multi-sport Yellowstone & Grand Teton Explorer or paddle away on our Snake River Rafting & Kayaking getaway..

Our unique Wyoming adventure vacation itineraries allow you to see, first-hand, and sense this state’s authentic mountain soul. Our Jackson Lake kayaking trip includes overnights spent right in the middle of Grand Teton National Park—a feature you simply can’t find elsewhere. Just you and the crew under the Western U.S. stars and meteor showers.

Our Yellowstone National Park adventure kayaking on Yellowstone Lake is also an unparalleled adventure where you can see the splendors of this famous Western U.S. wilderness from the intimate cockpit of a stable sea kayak. While traffic and hikers bustle on far-off shores, you've got Yellowstone’s majesty, all to yourself.

Hotels? Motels? Campgrounds? Nope. With O.A.R.S. arrangements and expert guiding, you can see Wyoming for the Wild West that it was, and still is.

Discover the best of Wyoming adventures in the Wild West's last stand—Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks

O.A.R.S. Wyoming adventures include our "all in one" Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Park Explorer, kayaking on Jackson Lake near Jackson Hole, kayaking on Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park as well as Snake River rafting. These scenic Wyoming adventure vacations transport you into the heart of the largest unspoiled wilderness in the continental U.S., to the shores and swells of its biggest mountain lake, and through the pristine habitat of some of the nation's largest animal populations. Our adventurous Wyoming itineraries offer rare experiences in both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, via "easy-to-learn and handle" sea kayaks, by raft and on foot—by lakeshore, river and trail.

The legends of Yellowstone and Jackson Hole are embraced by the jagged glory of the 13,770-foot Grand Teton on our Wyoming sea kayaking and multi-sport adventures in the world renown Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. In the early 1800's, this wilderness in Wyoming marked the edge of an unknown land where the Rocky Mountains soar out of the Great American Plains. Less than a century later, after the great battles and adventures of names like William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Crazy Horse and Kit Carson, the arrival of homesteaders, outlaws and heroes marked the last days of the wild, western frontier. Today, Wyoming is still steeped in cowboy culture and the lifestyles of big, bold Wyoming backcountry.

Wyoming's northwest corner is a geothermal theater of awe, including thousands of ever-erupting geysers, hot springs, enormous thermal basins and hissing steam vents. Ancient forests, some petrified, others buried in volcanic ash, are all that remain after a violent volcanic age that started over six million years ago.
