Seeking thoughtful advice on Yellowstone/Tetons trip!

Jump to last reply

We are going to Yellowstone and the Tetons! Looking for your thoughtful advice on how to SPREAD our time and where to do a few activities. We have three boys going with us ages 16, 14 and 11.

First, activities. We are beginners. Where do you suggest we do the following?
1. 1/2 day fly fishing trip
2. Horseback ride to see scenery and wildlife
3. Whitewater rafting

Second, itinerary. Here's the tentative plan. Questions are embedded:

Day 1: Drive from Fargo, ND to Red Lodge, MT.
Day 2: Leave early from Red Lodge and drive Beartooth Pass into Yellowstone.
(Husband will determine Yellowstone route). We have a condo lined up in West Yellowstone as our base to explore.
Day 3: More Yellowstone exploring
Day 4: More Yellowstone? Go fly fishing in Big Sky? Go fly fishing somewhere else? Thoughts?
Day 5: Head to Tetons. Stay in Jackson or in Tetons? Thoughts?
Day 6: Another day in Tetons/Jackson or head towards Cody, WY?
Day 7: Cody, WY
Day 8: More Cody? Get out of Cody and get to Medora, ND.
Day 9: Drive from Medora to Fargo.
