The Ultimate Yellowstone Experience – Geysers and Wildlife

This 2-day geysers and wildlife tour explores the major highlights of Yellowstone with an experienced and knowledgeable guide. The first day will take you on a journey exploring the geysers and other thermal features of the Old Faithful area and beyond, stepping back in time to experience the history of the first National Park. The following day, your same guide will bring along binoculars and spotting scopes, as you will head out on an early morning exploration of the Northern Range and Lamar Valley, looking for bears, wolves, bison and the countless other animals that call Yellowstone home. Throughout these two days, your guide will be sharing the fascinating and complex ways in which the geologic events of the past (volcanism, glacial periods, plate tectonics, and hydrology) have shaped the landscape and laid the foundation for the wildlife we see in Yellowstone today.

The Yellowstone Volcano is one of the largest active volcanoes in the world and contains more than 200 active geysers and over 10,000 geo-thermal features, including hot springs, geysers, mud pots and steam vents. As the world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park was created to protect the area’s geysers, hot springs, mud pots, waterfalls and canyons that were deemed so unique and precious they should be protected forever for the benefit and enjoyment of the people. Those geological wonders remain among the most celebrated natural features anywhere in the world today.

In addition to its geologic wonders, Yellowstone National Park is now globally recognized as one of the top wildlife destinations on the planet. Almost every nation looks up to Yellowstone as the ultimate example of successful wildlife conservation. Yellowstone’s global recognition stems in large part from the successful restoration of the gray wolf 1995. With wolves roaming freely once again, scientists believe Yellowstone is currently just as wild and ecologically healthy as it has ever been – a truly remarkable feat in today’s world! In fact, all of the original wildlife species found here are thriving, living wild lives, and interacting with one another just as they have done for thousands of years.

Wolves, grizzly bears and bison roamed all across the West when Yellowstone was formed on March 1, 1872, but today there is no other place where we can find all three of our continent’s most iconic and arguably most important wildlife species. Throughout all of North America, only in Yellowstone can we witness a wholly intact ecosystem!
