Why you'll love this trip
  • Hike to the largest backcountry geyser in the park, Lone Star Geyser, which is found in a clearing surrounded by dense forest and erupts from a shed-sized cream-coloured mound.
  • Drive to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone – a giant rift in a landscape of forested hills - and take a short stroll to Artist Point for phenomenal waterfall views.
  • Walk to one of the most beautiful lookout spots in the park, the summit of Mt. Washburn, and take in the views of Yellowstone Lake, the Teton Range, and Electric Peak.
  • Explore the Upper Geyser Basin which is home to more than half the world’s geysers, including what is the arguably the most famous one, Old Faithful.
  • Admire the glittering waters of Yellowstone Lake on a hike to Storm Point, a relatively flat loop that leads to a stunning vista of the largest North American lake above 7,000 feet.

The Yellowstone trip was one of my most memorable. The environment is a must see. The animals are a bonus. This trip is well organised with an emphasis on treasuring and enjoying nature. The guides were excellent is every way. Highly recommended.
