Go Native America, as its name implies, specializes in introducing people of all ages to Native American culture. Visit sacred sites, hear Native American stories, and learn a history missing from most school books. The day tours - Badlands, Black Hills, Wounded Knee, Little Bighorn and Devils Tower - are ideal for families with kids aged 8 and up. These individual adventures are fully customized experiences enabling you to establish an itinerary that best suites your interests. All Native American Indian tours are guided by knowledgeable and experienced Native Americans. Of note, the multi-day tours for which the company is best known are tough going for kids under 15 years of age. They involve significant travel, do not offer activities especially designed for children, and rarely include kids.

Gardiner, Montana based Flying Pig Adventure Company is a rafting outfitter at heart. But that doesn't mean their wildlife safaris and horseback rides aren't worthwhile. Flying Pig has teemed up with top Yellowstone specialists to create a winning combination of rafting trips, horseback rides and wildlife viewing excursions. Sample one or try all three. Children must be at least 7 years of age to horseback ride. While there is no hard and fast minimum age on rafting trips the minimum weight is 50 lbs (23 kg). Of note, not all trips take place in Yellowstone National Park. Rafting is done on the Yellowstone River outside the park. Horseback rides take place in the Gallatin National Forest. Wildlife safaris are in Yellowstone's Lamar Valley.
