Example Itinerary: 14 day roundtrip Denver

An RV roundtrip from Denver is a great way to explore the states of Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. In these states you will find an abundance of beautiful scenery, national parks and American towns. To get you started, our team of experts has put together the ultimate RV round trip for you. Of course, this can be customized to your needs, but we like to think along with you! 

Day 1: Denver
Coming from an international destination, you always need to plan at least one overnight in the US before you can pick up your RV. No problem on this trip, because there is plenty to see and do in the Mile High City of Denver! Denver is home to no less than six professional sports teams, from baseball to American football, so watching a game is a must. There are also many museums, including the Denver Art Museum and the Nature & Science Museum. Downtown Denver offers great dining and shopping on the lively 16th Street Mall.

Day 2: Denver - Rocky Mountain National Park, 104 km - 1.5 hours 
Today you will pick up your RV and drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. This beautiful park is also located in the state of Colorado and is relatively close to the capital. Here you will find beautiful mountain scenery, vast forests and rich biodiversity. There are several roads in the park that you can travel by RV. Don't forget to look for wildlife along the way! Spend the evening at one of the park's campgrounds. 

Day 3: Rocky Mountain National Park - Cheyenne, 146 km - about 2 hours
Continue into the state of Wyoming to the cowboy town of Cheyenne, a 2 hour drive. Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming and has a cozy atmosphere with boutiques and coffee shops downtown. Being the capital, you will find the Wyoming Capitol Building, which is well worth a visit.

Day 4: Cheyenne - Buffalo, 465 km - 4.5 hours
Depart Cheyenne early in the morning and travel to Buffalo. Buffalo is located at the base of the southern part of the Bighorn National Forest, which is an excellent area for recreation. There are interpretive sites, waterfalls and scenic byways. The latter are roads that are tourist destinations in themselves, with unique scenery and views. Buffalo itself is also a fun city to explore.

Day 5: Buffalo - Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, 198 km - about 2.5 hours
The northern part of the Bighorn National Forest is also a great area to explore. Access it through the town of Sherdian. Stop here to visit the hidden gem King's Saddlery. Handmade saddles, boots and ropes are made and sold on site. As you walk through the shop and workshop, you'll also find the Don King Museum full of historic western artifacts. After this visit, continue on Route 14 through the Bighorn National Forest via the beautiful Medicine Wheel Passage. Here you can visit the Medicine Wheel, a sacred site for Native Americans.

Day 6: Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area
There is so much to do in this area that we recommend two nights. Drive the Bighorn Canyon Scenic Byway with great views of the canyon and Bighorn Lake. You can also hike, fish, kayak, and take boat tours through the canyon. Our recommendation is a trip with Hidden Treasure Charters. Keep an eye out for wildlife along the way! In the evening, enjoy a beautiful starry night by the RV.

Day 7: Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area - Billings, 174 km - approx. 2 hours
The first town you will visit in Montana is Billings. Here you can enjoy good food at a variety of restaurants and sample local beers at one of the many breweries. In fact, there are so many that they have created the Billing's Brew Trail! So once again, put on your most comfortable walking shoes and sample local creations from nine breweries, three distilleries, one cider mill and one winery.

Day 8: Billings - Yellowstone National Park, 150km - approx. 2 hours
From Billings, head south to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The drive there over the Beartooth Highway is truly beautiful. This All-American Road offers breathtaking views of the Beartooth Mountains and is a tourist destination in itself. Tonight is your first night in Yellowstone with your RV. 

Day 9/10: Yellowstone National Park
We recommend at least two days to explore Yellowstone by RV. Here you can visit attractions such as the geysers of Upper Geyser Basin, Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Mammoth Hot Springs and Lamar Valley (known for wildlife viewing). Yellowstone is known for its abundant wildlife. Look for bison, elk, and even grizzly bears and wolves. Keep a safe distance, preferably staying in your RV, and never approach or feed the animals!

Day 11: Yellowstone National Park - Grand Teton National Park, 80 km - 1 hour 
After visiting Yellowstone, drive your RV south to the next national park, Grand Teton. This park also has several campgrounds where you can park your RV. However, these campgrounds can fill up quickly, especially during the high season. Consider making reservations in advance or arriving early in the day to secure a spot. Some campgrounds are first-come, first-served, so plan ahead. One of the park's most popular areas is Jenny Lake, where you can hike the Jenny Lake Loop Trail to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point for stunning views of the Tetons.

Day 12: Grand Teton National Park - Rock Springs, 295km - approx. 3 hours
Heading south, you will pass through Jackson, a charming and vibrant town just outside Grand Teton. Stop here to explore the western culture and vibrant arts scene. Continue on to Rock Springs, where you will spend the night. 

Day 13: Rock Springs - Laramie, 335 km - 3 hours
There are two ways to get to Laramie, the first is directly on Interstate 80, the shortest and fastest route of about three hours. You can also drive through Saratoga on Highway 130. This route takes half an hour longer, but it takes you through the beautiful Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest! Once you arrive in Laramie, you can choose from a number of delicious local restaurants for dinner, and don't forget to save room for dessert at the local favorite: The Sugar Mouse Cupcake House.

Day 14: Laramie - Denver, 209 km - about 2 hours
Return the RV and end your unforgettable journey!
