In the 19th century, the Oregon Trail was forged by the pioneers of America when they first migrated across to the Pacific Northwest in covered, horse-drawn wagons with the hope of creating new settlements according to the Manifest Destiny. It eventually came to reach from what is now Missouri all the way to Oregon.

Railways eventually took over, but the striking, varied landscape of the Old West seems just as it once was in many areas, and trekking across the grassy, golden prairies, past windswept rock formations, close-packed forests and tumbling, pristine rivers, it’s not hard to imagine that you’re part of the first wagon train ever to roll its steady way through, way back in the 1800s.  For a day and a night, at least.

As part of the Oregon Trail Wagon Train experience, you’ll also have a chance to eat a cook-out dinner of prime ribs or steak, and all the pioneer trimmings, with your fellow travellers around the campfire, and sleep under the stars, trying out just enough of the covered wagoneer's life to have fun on the Nebraska prairies, but without any of the physical challenges the real pioneers experienced.  

As well as the 24 hour covered wagon treks you can also arrange day rides and shorter tours around the area around the famous Chimney Rock.
