Yellowstone National Park Tours

Yellowstone National Park has a way of making your dreams feel real. Steam rises from the ground, bright yellows, deep blues, and vibrant greens flood your sights, and animals you’ve only ever seen in movies roam so close beside you that you can almost touch them. Here, you’re surrounded by natural beauty, curiosity, and century old secrets that inspire awe inside you. And that’s just a scratch on the surface. Located primarily in the state of Wyoming, but also stretching into Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone is home to some of the most iconic natural features in the world. This natural wonder spans over 2 million acres of stunning landscapes, unique geological formations, and abundant wildlife. Yellowstone is waiting for you. It’s about time you experienced it. 

Our Yellowstone National Park Tour allows you to safely venture throughout the area and learn alongside a knowledgeable and passionate naturalist guide. Based on your interests and the time of year of your visit, you’ll have a choice of Animal Safaris, Yellowstone Photography Tours, and hiking in Yellowstone to discover the stunning vistas and natural beauty of the area such as Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, and so much more.  

Things to See in Yellowstone


Probably the most common interest that Yellowstone visitors have is the wildlife. Yellowstone is part of an incredibly special ecosystem thanks to years of conservation efforts from land preservation and wildlife management, including the famous reintroduction of the gray wolf and the tireless recovery of the grizzly bear. There are very few places in the lower 48 where you can potentially see and photograph a long list of charismatic megafauna, including these two endangered apex predators. Seasonal events such as breeding and migrations promise quite a show of these magnificent species, attracting both amateur wildlife watchers and professional photographers from around the globe.

Stunning Landscapes

If you, like most people, appreciate an impressive waterfall, awe-inspiring canyons, open spaces, and the serenity of the forest, there is no doubt you are in Yellowstone for its undeniable natural beauty. Everywhere you turn, you will be rewarded with vistas and landscapes that many only see in paintings or nature documentaries. There’s no better place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and feel rejuvenated.

Geothermal Activity

Usually, the mere mention of Yellowstone makes people think of Old Faithful. This famous geyser is one of the most popular destinations within the park and considered one of the biggest highlights. What many don’t know is that it is only one of 500 geysers in the park, and only one of 10,000 geothermal features! Yellowstone is one of the world’s largest volcanoes which has been dormant for 70,000 years. The last major eruption was approximately 631,000 years ago, forming the monstrous Yellowstone Caldera which covers more than 40% of the park.

Due to this extreme volcanic activity, Yellowstone is home to hot springs, mud pots, steam vents, travertine terraces, and of course, geysers! Bright yellows and oranges swirl around the springs and geysers giving a striking painted appearance amongst the thermal areas, formed by thermophilic (heat loving) bacteria. Steam bellows from the ground all across the landscape, creating an other-worldly atmosphere. Many exclaim that they feel they are on another planet! Having a guide to accompany you is particularly helpful when observing these phenomena to be able to interpret what you are seeing and understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’, which only makes it more interesting!

Yellowstone Seasonal Tours

The seasons change so drastically in this region that the activities and tours available to you will vary, as will the wildlife. Be sure to check what’s available during the time of year that you are visiting, and what you can expect to see!


During the spring and summer months there are plentiful opportunities to see wildlife including moose, elk, deer, bison, pronghorn, fox, coyote, bald and golden eagles, black bears, grizzly bears, and even wolves! From May – October we even offer two and three day safaris that focus primarily on finding the ecosystem’s most dominant apex predators: wolves and bears. Our Yellowstone day tours that depart from Jackson aim to take in all of the “greatest hits” of the southern loop of the park, filling the day with unforgettable scenery, geysers, hot springs, and wildlife. The roads are generally clear and all areas of the park are easily accessible, although potential snowstorms in April/May and September/October due to the elevation can cause some brief road closures which may affect tours, but there are usually options available in the unlikely event your tour is impacted. 


In the winter, you’ll find that peace and serenity overtake the park. However, a thick blanket of snow doesn’t stop nature from thriving here. The south entrance to Yellowstone is closed from mid-November to mid-May, meaning day trips are not available from Jackson. We offer a 3 Day Winter Wolves and Wildlife Safari as an incredible way to immerse yourself in the dramatic winter landscape that will take you straight from your lodging in Jackson Hole to the northern range of Yellowstone to experience the incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna, including bison, elk, coyotes, bighorn sheep, eagles, and the elusive gray wolf in their natural habitats. Keep in mind that bears are hibernating during the winter months, so they will be absent from the landscape. The colder months are the perfect time to join a Yellowstone Snowshoe Tour for a unique immersive experience of Yellowstone’s wild nature.

Because each tour is customizable, you will be able to learn about the aspects of the area you feel the most connected to and experience what interests you most. Spend more time soaking in the sights, learning about geology, or searching for exciting wildlife sightings. Welcome to Yellowstone—we are so glad you’re here.

Is Yellowstone Easy to Tour from Jackson Hole?

Yes! Not only is it easy, but you get the added bonus of traveling through Grand Teton National Park on the way to and from Yellowstone, rewarding you with some of the most beautiful mountain views you will ever see and additional chances for wildlife sightings! The south entrance to Yellowstone is about a 1.5-hour drive from Jackson, which is a treat in itself.

Can I Tour Yellowstone and Jackson Hole in the same weekend?

Yes! We recommend booking a half-day or a full-day Grand Teton tour first, and then a Yellowstone tour a day or two after. Alternatively, you can do a two-day tour and overnight in Yellowstone, spending a little time in Grand Teton on your way there and back.

What types of tours can you do in Yellowstone National Park?

If you’re short on time, a full day Yellowstone tour will take you around the southern loop where you’ll see highlights such as Old Faithful, varying geothermal features, Hayden Valley, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. 


We also offer extended tours of two and three days, beginning and ending in Jackson. You’ll enjoy comfortable lodging around the park and tour both the upper and lower loops, seeing Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, and the famous Lamar Valley in addition to the lower loop highlights. We even offer a five-day photography workshop led by a professional photography guide if you are serious about photography!


If you are visiting the park from the northern towns such as Bozeman, Big Sky, or Gardiner, our sister company Yellowstone Safari Company operates out of Bozeman and can take you on the same incredible adventures from there. All of our guides have thousands of hours in the field and an innate passion for the local ecosystem, so no matter where you tour from you will receive the highest quality guided experience in Yellowstone!

What do I need to bring on a Yellowstone tour?

For these types of excursions, it is good to be prepared for any weather. Because weather can be unpredictable at any time of the year, with temperatures varying greatly from morning to afternoon, layers are key! Wear clothes that you would be comfortable in for a warm, sunny day with an extra sweatshirt/fleece, and a shell for rain. In the early spring and late fall, a heavier, warmer jacket is recommended. Comfortable sneakers or boots are best for walking on uneven trails and boardwalks. If you have a camera, bring it along! Don’t worry about binoculars, we will provide those. For multi-day tours, a change of clothes, pajamas to sleep in, and toiletries. Bring any medication you would need. We will provide food and water!

Will there be restrooms?

Yes! There is no need to worry, there will be ample restroom opportunities. It is said that you are never more than 10 minutes away from a toilet in Yellowstone. They are not all flush restrooms, many areas of the park are remote with only vault toilets (outhouse-type bathrooms) around, but our guides will let you know when there is a more comfortable flush restroom available. In the early spring and late fall, most, if not all, flush restrooms will be closed for the season. Don’t worry, vault toilets are everywhere, and are part of the experience!

What kind of vehicle will we be in?

We provide both private and public tours, but we keep our group sizes small, so you will not be on a big bus. We use spacious SUVs and passenger vans. This allows us to focus on individual guests more closely, have a more personable experience, and we can pull over easily for wildlife sightings!
