All Day Yellowstone National Park Tour

Key landmarks include the Old Faithful Inn, the Lake Yellowstone Hotel, and the Canyon Village Visitor Center.

As you travel through the Park, your guide will discuss how ancient tribes of Native Americans, mountain men, pioneers, artists, the military, and Presidents influenced the establishment of the World’s First National Park. You will also learn how ancient oceans, earthquakes, fires, floods, glaciers, and volcanic eruptions have sculpted the ecosystem. And if you’re lucky, you’ll see plenty of animals before returning to Jackson. Wildlife may include black bears, grizzly bears, bison, coyotes, eagles, elk, moose, osprey, ravens, redtail foxes, pronghorn, and wolves.

Expect to walk a leisurely 3.5 to 4 miles over the tour. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages are provided.

Itinerary

If you only have one day to visit Yellowstone, this one-day, 280+ mile tour of Yellowstone’s Lower Loop is the tour to take. After departing Jackson, we will transit through Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway while making our way to Yellowstone. We will make several stops along the way to take photos, admire wildlife, and take advantage of the Flagg Ranch restrooms. Using bathrooms with running water is how we roll.

We will then enter Yellowstone through the South Entrance just a little before 9 AM. We will continue driving north to West Thumb Geyser Basin from there before making a short pitstop at the famous Lake Yellowstone Hotel. We will continue traveling north from the hotel to admire the Mud Volcano, Hayden Valley, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone before taking a lunch break at Canyon Village Visitor Center.

Continuing west from Canyon, we will explore Fountain Paint Pots, Excelsior Geyser Crater, and Grand Prismatic Hot Spring. We will cap the day with a visit to the Old Faithful Inn (the largest log-cabin-style structure on Earth) and see Old Faithful Geyser gush in all her glory. The drive from Old Faithful back to Jackson is approximately 2.5-3 hours.
