Vast, empty and starkly beautiful, Wyoming’s wildernesses are exceptional. The north west corner of the state is where you’ll find the bubbling, living legend that is Yellowstone National Park and the great peaks of the Grand Teton National Park. Plus the skiable peaks and bowls of Jackson Hole. Much of the rest of Wyoming is ranch land and this is about as close as you’ll get to frontier country these days. If you’re here to see the national parks then Jackson is probably one of the best places to stay in Wyoming, but if you’re looking for a real escape from everything then some of the best places to stay in Wyoming for you will also be some of American’s most remote properties.

Yellowstone is why most people come to Wyoming, America’s first national park and a dramatic volcanic landscape of geysers, boiling mud ponds and warm, bright blue lakes at some of the highest elevations on the planet, and all atop a supervolcano. Yellowstone is also home to some of America’s most impressive beasts: grizzly bears, the quarterbacks of the bison world, wolf packs, black bears, buffalo, elk, pronghorn and eagles.
The Grand Tetons are just to the south, and have jagged, snowy peaks, alpine forests and glaciers, inhabited by bears, moose, grouse and marmot.
Another good base for getting up close and personal with the great outdoors is Saratoga. Famous for its hot springs, it's also a destination for keen fishermen, watersports and a whole raft of adventure sports.
Chic Jackson, the adventure sports playground and outpost of the old west, is a lively place known for its celebrity second homes and cultural life way beyond its population. Its Centre for Arts attracts big names, there’s a wonderful Museum of Wildlife Art, and a huge selection of restaurants. But of course you’ll be there for the adventure sports and the views. Ski, climb, hike, bike, kayak, ride horses, go rafting, it’s all here and more.
Cheyenne is the state capital, best known for its huge rodeo and country music. If you’re here for the wild west experience then Cody - named after Buffalo Bill Cody, its founder - and Buffalo, are the places you’ll want to visit. Both cities stage amazing wild west shows, with Cody between the Bighorn Mountains and Yellowstone, and Buffalo, with its historic buildings, closer to the Bighorn Mountains.
Casper has the museums and art galleries, Laramie is the state’s university town, at the foot of the Medicine Bow Mountains, with a pretty, historic downtown, and Lander is great for outdoors-folk, with its rock climbing and mountaineering opportunities.
Whether you're here for a wild west experience or a spot of hiking or skiing, don't forget that the best places to stay in Wyoming are very popular year round.....so do yourself a favour and book early.
