Overview

Yellowstone National Park Tours

Yellowstone National Park ToursYellowstone is literally bursting at the seams with fascinating natural beauty and if you're interested in exploring sub-alpine forest pines as raging rivers and active geysers bubble away nearby, then 'hold onto your picnic baskets Boo-Boo',  as this national park is top of the pile.

Located mainly in the northwest state of Wyoming, which is one of America's least inhabited, it's easy to see why fans of peace and tranquillity hold the park in such high regard. With over two million acres of protected wilderness to explore, rest and relaxation are never far away.

Yellowstone Insider Tips

Back Basin hike
For everyone hoping to gather some park ranger knowledge from their Yellowstone holiday, make sure you pack your best boots and check out the following trail, which is considered to be one of the park's best day hikes. Back Basin at Old Faithful is a three-sided loop that takes in Black Sand Basin and Biscuit Basin before heading back to the old geyser. The route stretches for around six miles and is extremely flat and easy going, with loads of thermal features to keep you warm along the way.
When to go
Thanks to Yellowstone's mountainous landscape you can generally find summer temperatures to be a pleasant - low to mid-twenties - although the higher up you are, the colder it gets. Packing a fleece and sun hat is advisable if trekking, and be warned that the evenings can get decidedly chilly. Spring and autumn tend to be pretty fresh and anywhere between 15c to zero figures. Although this is nothing in comparison to the winter, where temperatures plummet to below freezing and the park is covered in snow and ice.
Highlights & Activities

Yellowstone Tour Highlights

Geothermal activity
It's estimated that Yellowstone is home to over 10,000 geothermal features so prepare for some impressive displays of heat and power. Discover Yellowstone's most fabled residents, Old Faithful & Mammoth Hot Springs.
Amazing scenery
The scenery of Yellowstone is as eclectic as it is beautiful and, as most of the land is undeveloped and has been left to grow organically, it's considered to be one of the greatest intact ecosystems on Earth.
Wildlife experiences
Yellowstone is a haven for creatures great and small. Bears, buffalo and elk can be found within the park's protected boundaries. If you're extremely lucky, rare lynx, wild wolves and mountain lions may make an appearance.
Walking trails
The park is a huge draw for walkers and trekkers seeking solace from the trappings of urban life. Or, with such an abundance of scenic spots available, if you just fancy unrolling a rug and watching the clouds float overhead, who could blame you?
