Yellowstone 36 Hour Quickie!

Tour ID

 358

Unlike the 45 hour version of this tour, this short trip actually allows you to fly into Salt Lake after the regular shuttle departs at 10 am, and leave on your tour that same day. You’ll travel by shuttle, which makes several stops, from Salt Lake City to a small city in East Idaho. on the first day. Please remember that unlike when you’re in Yellowstone, your driver today is not a 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.

Shortly after you arrive, you’ll join your group for 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 provided today. Please view the entire lower loop itinerary.

On most days, you will then be free to wander town briefly until your shuttle picks you up at 6pm to take you to your hotel in east Idaho.

In the morning you will catch the shuttle back to Salt Lake City. It will pick you up at your hotel, make several stops along the way, and drop you off either at a central downtown location near Temple Square or at the Salt Lake City Airport.
