Wind River Country Summer Vacation Deals – Mix and match our adventures for your dream vacation

Lander, WY – Ever wanted to hear tribal tales told by real storytellers or feel the beat of the Native American drum circle? Look no further. There is so much to savor like Indian powwows, authentic cultural dance exhibitions, and historic tours being served up all summer long across Wind River Country. Visit a land steeped in the ancient cultural traditions of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Indian tribes, who called this fertile valley “Valley of the Warm Winds.” Today we call it Wind River Country—Fremont County. 

Explore our natural wonders that appear in every direction while you are here. Learn fishing secrets from a pro angler on a guided fishing trip, choose a relaxing horse packing excursion with a side of yoga, fly high above it all, or just kick-back and let the scenery come to you in several guided backcountry driving tours. Why not take advantage of more than one of our package deals while you are here? Make your play money go even further for a summer full of endless stories that can only come alive in Wyoming’s Wind River Country.

To help tempt you, here are some “appetizers.” For complete package deal listings and logistics, visit windriver.org/trip-planning/packages/ or call 800-645-6233 for your free vacation packet.
