Wyoming is a hot contender for this summer’s top getaway list, as on 21 August a total solar eclipse will sweep across the state. Billed as America’s biggest tourist event of all time, guests of the Goosewing Working/Guest Ranch will have access to exclusive viewing areas as the property is situated on the path of totality.
Western Wagon glamping is the latest buzzword on the posh camping scene, and now fans of this fascinating era can cosy up in the ranch’s hand-crafted wagons, each one converted into a luxurious suite with individual bathroom. Set in the Gros Ventre Valley and Bridger-Teton National Forest each wagon also comes complete with its own Polaris Ranger UTV allowing guests to explore the beautiful Jackson Hole Valley. Additional activities on offer include horseback rides, hiking, fishing, and shooting sports, and spa treatments will be available back at the ranch.
A bonus for anyone holidaying in the great outdoors, Florence Williams, author of The Nature Fix (published, February 2017), claims time outdoors not only makes you happier and less stressed but also more creative and socially connected.
At Authentic Western glamping, the campfire is set in the middle of the circle of wagons. Departing until 3 September. Family wagons available.
