All Of Yellowstone Tour In Just 60 Hours!
Unlike the 72 hour version of this tour, this shorter tour actually allows you to fly into Salt Lake after the regular shuttle departs at 10 AM, leave on your tour that same day, and see all of Yellowstone! The first day is an unescorted shuttle from Salt Lake City, with several stops along the way, to a small city in East Idaho, where you will spend the night. Unescorted means that there is only a shuttle driver with you, and not a tour guide.
On day two you will be picked up from your hotel just after 6 am, and be driven for approximately 1.5 hours across scenic rural Idaho, through the Targhee National Forest, over the Continental Divide and into Montana and West Yellowstone. Depending on that day’s tour schedules, you will then either be free to explore the town of West Yellowstone until roughly noon, or go directly into Yellowstone and tour the Upper Loop. Either way, you will be seeing all of Yellowstone today and tomorrow. If you do have to wait for the later tour, we strongly suggest taking in the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center where you will see live grizzlies, wolves, otters, and several birds of prey.
You will experience the full Yellowstone upper loop tour, which includes a guide offering insights on the geology, latest park updates and ecological studies. You will experience waterfalls, walks around geothermal features, taking in the historic park headquarters, and wildlife viewing in the Lamar Valley – often called “America’s Serengeti” due to the abundance of wildlife such as bison, pronghorns, elk, and depending on the season and time of day, bears or even wolves. A sack lunch is provided today. Please view the entire upper loop itinerary.
On the third day, your guide will pick you up and you’ll do the lower loop tour, offering guided investigation of the most geothermal areas of Yellowstone, while still providing great wildlife viewing opportunities along the rivers and in Hayden Valley. You will take the time to watch Old Faithful erupt, explore the historic Old Faithful Inn and wander the boardwalks of the Lower, Midway and Upper Geyser basins checking out all four kinds of thermal features present in the park. You will then go to West Thumb on Yellowstone Lake, up through Hayden Valley and on to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone where you will stop at both the Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls before returning to West Yellowstone. A sack lunch is once again provided today. Please view the entire lower loop itinerary.
