Day Tour of Yellowstone National Park

This tour allows you to see the significant wildlife, geothermal, and cultural sites of Yellowstone’s Lower Loop in one day (12-13 hours). During this whistle-stop tour, you will have a chance to take several short hikes to the Mud Volcano, Artist Point, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Grand Prismatic Hot Spring, the largest hot spring in the world, and the world-famous Old Faithful Geyser before returning to Jackson, Wyoming. Wildlife encountered may include black bears, grizzly bears, bison, coyotes, eagles, osprey, pronghorn, and wolves.

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. From there, we will continue driving north to West Thumb Geyser Basin before making a short pitstop at the famous Lake Yellowstone Hotel. From the hotel, we will continue traveling north 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 Faith back to Jackson is approximately 2.5-3 hours.
