There is no better time to visit the Grand Canyon! As it celebrates its 100th year as an official National Park, experience one of the seven natural wonders of the world in all of its majestic glory.

This Adventures By Disney itinerary will have you hiking along iconic trails. Rafting through the Colorado River. Exploring Arches National Park in Arizona, and witnessing the red rock canyons of Moab, Utah.

2. Montana (Yellowstone National Park)

You better pack your cowboy boots for this Old West adventure! Go glamping under the stars and stay at a rustic dude ranch in Montana.

In addition to horseback riding and fly fishing, you’ll have access to the geothermal wonders of Yellowstone! Marvel at Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces, Old Faithful Geyser, Grand Prismatic Spring and more.

You don’t have to tell me ‘yee-haw’ twice.

3. Canadian Rockies (Banff and Lake Louise)

Bask in the beauty of Banff and Lake Louise as Adventures By Disney visits Canada. Glacial cliffs, pristine lakes, and rushing rapids await you at every turn.

If gondola rides and guided expeditions over the Colombia Ice Fields aren’t enough, this itinerary will be particularly pleasing for the foodies. After you’ve worked up an appetite exploring, you can take a food tour of Alberta’s Cowboy Trail.

4. Alaska (“The Last Frontier”)
