Overview

Join an experienced naturalist guide on a wildlife safari tour of Yellowstone National Park. We will focus on the geology, wildlife, and natural history of Yellowstone National Park while customizing the safari around your specific areas of interest. We will start the day by traveling north through Grand Teton National Park entering Yellowstone through the South Entrance. We then travel around the entire “lower loop” road visiting famous Yellowstone features like the Continental Divide, Old Faithful, Fountain Paint Pots, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley, Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake and much more. Wildlife will also be a priority as we travel through the park with opportunities to see moose, elk, deer, bison, pronghorn, fox, coyote, bald and golden eagles, black bears, grizzly bears and even wolves depending on season. Your knowledgeable guide will make frequent stops as opportunities for wildlife viewing present themselves. The route each day will vary depending on wildlife, group interest and road conditions.

Having been on many tours in many countries, this ranks as one of the best. The tour itself was fantastic and in one day we hit all the major spots on the lower loop. We saw many off the beaten path sights and our guide was fantastic. He was super knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible, and always available and fun.

FAQs

What is the weather like during the summer?

Summer in Jackson Hole runs from early May to late October.  Average high temperatures in the valley during the summer season range from 61F to 81F (16C to 27C), and daily temperatures can fluctuate quite a lot.  The high elevation often creates cool mornings and evenings but hot afternoons. It is important to come prepared for a variety of conditions throughout the day as they can change quickly in the summertime.
