How to go glamping in Western wagons for the eclipse

Complete with an exclusive viewing area in the Path of Totality

If you love the great outdoors and want to experience the very finest natural spectacle the planet has to offer, you could do worse than this package tour to go glamping in Western wagons in Wyoming.

Close to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone National Park, Goosewing Working/Guest Ranch is situated almost bang on the centerline of the Path of Totality and will get a whopping 2 minutes 20 seconds of Totality on Monday August 21. Best of all, you’ll have a private viewing area all to yourself.

UK tour operator Ranch Rider (01509 618 811; is offering a six-night package from UK£1,929 per adult/UK£1,639 per child (six to 12 years) for August 20 – 26 to coincide with the Total Solar Eclipse.

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 (the glamping site is accessed by UTV.). Additional activities on offer include horseback rides, hiking, fishing, and shooting sports, and spa treatments will be available back at the ranch. The campfire is set in the middle of the circle of wagons.
