Yellowstone 45 Hour Quickie!
This tour is for those with limited time but want to see as much of Yellowstone as possible. It starts in Salt Lake City at 10 am and includes two nights’ hotel stay, a full lower loop tour and the shuttle to and from Salt Lake City. You have multiple options for the departure after your second night, enabling you to be back in Salt Lake as early as 6:40 AM on day three.
Your tour starts at either a central downtown Salt Lake location, or at the Salt Lake airport, from where will travel by shuttle, making several stops along the way, to West Yellowstone. Please remember that the driver is not a guide and this is an unescorted leg of your tour. You will be dropped off at West Yellowstone Lodge to check-in and then are free to wander West Yellowstone taking advantage of all the stores, the IMAX theater, and the Grizzly And Wolf Discovery Center where you are guaranteed to see grizzly bears, wolves and otters!
On day two 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 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.
