What To See In Yellowstone During Scenic Tours

There’s a lot to see during our scenic tours. After all, the park is roughly 2.2 million acres. People often become overwhelmed with the sheer size of the park when trying to plan a trip. That’s where our Yellowstone tours come in handy. Here’s some examples of things we’ll see during scenic tours.

Learn About Our Historic Places

It should be no surprise that this national park is full of historic places. After all, the park itself is a historic site. You might be surprised to learn that it’s the world’s first national park. However, that’s not the only historic significance you’ll find here.

Areas and structures like the Old Faithful Inn are rich in history and are in fact part of the national historic landmarks. The historic places don’t stop there though. You’ll have plenty of things to see and learn about during your scenic tours. We want to make sure that you learn important information during your time with us. 

Amazing Nature Photography Opportunities

The park also offers endless opportunities to capture incredible nature photography shots. We’ll put you at the perfect locations to capture pictures like a pro, whether you’ve been doing nature photography for years or it’s your first time.

Like we’ve said before, we are not a photography company. However, we provide scenic tours that give you everything you need, except a camera, to capture the best images to enhance your memories and make your visit something you’ll never forget.

Marvel at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

This is a part of our guided tours that everyone falls in love with. Calling the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone amazing is a huge understatement. The history behind the creation of this canyon alone is mind boggling. Thanks to enormous volcanic explosions that happened 640,000 years ago, we can now set our eyes upon one of the most awe-inspiring sights in our country, and possibly even the world.

This area offers something to see year-round. It even feels like a brand-new sight every time you look at it from a different angle. The lower falls are a staggering 308 feet tall and they will leave you feeling tiny compared to their immense size. The Upper Falls aren’t quite as tall, coming in at a smaller size of 109 feet, but they will still easily take your breath away. This is untamed nature at its finest and we’re ready to give you a perfect view with our scenic tours!

The Breathtaking Lewis Canyon

The Lewis Canyon is a beautiful place to view the Lewis River which runs its entire course within the national park. You might think the name sounds familiar. Well, there’s a good reason for that. The canyon as well as the river are named after Meriwether Lewis. This is a great place to stop during scenic tours for a couple of reasons. First, the views are amazing. Second, this is one of the top historic places to go to learn about important historical events such as the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Enjoy Yellowstone Tours of Old Faithful

Nothing is more exciting or provides more opportunities for incredible nature photography than Old Faithful. This cone geyser has had more than 1,000,000 recorded eruptions. Shockingly, Old Faithful can rocket between 3,700 and 8,400 gallons of water into the sky at heights ranging from 106 to 185 feet.

With steady intervals between eruptions, your tour guide will be able to put you at the right place at the right time to not only see but experience this natural wonder in action. People have flocked from all over the world to see Old Faithful. 

Vibrant Yellowstone National Park Plant Life

Our Yellowstone tours will expose you to the most vibrant and beautiful plant life you have ever seen. No matter where you look, something is sure to catch your eye and make you say “wow”. You’ll get a lot more than some great scenery though. Our expert tour guides will be able to inform you about the different plants.

Nearly untouched by humans, this national park offers the world’s most natural scenery. There’s no better way to get away from it all for a while and enjoy some time outdoors than our scenic tours.

A Visit to Yellowstone Lake

Yellowstone Lake happens to be the national park’s largest body of water and it also happens to be one  of the many places our scenic tours will take you to. Abundant birds and wildlife frequent the lake area so you never know what you might see!

A Trip to Hayden Valley

Hayden Valley is yet another addition to the historic places we will take you to. Historical events are what caused this valley to exist. Once covered by a portion of Yellowstone Lake, Hayden Valley looked much different many years ago. Now you’ll see sprawling fields of marshland, but little trees.

This is due to the fine-grained lake sediments left behind on the land as well as a glacial retreat that took place 13,000 years ago. Water is not easily absorbed in Hayden valley because of these events. There may not be many trees but there’s plenty of other things to feast your eyes upon including abundant wildlife and several different scenic overlooks.

Yellowstone Wolves

You weren’t always able to view wolves at the park the way you are now. In fact, grey wolves were recently restored in 1995. Since that time, the wolf population has been on a healthy rise. With the wolves now venturing beyond the boundaries of the park.

 

Tips for Wildlife expeditions in Yellowstone

We want all our Yellowstone tours to be an incredible experience for our visitors. To keep yourself safe, as well as the wildlife, there are some simple rules you should follow.

 

  • Never feed wildlife while on Yellowstone tours. This can make animals too comfortable around humans which can lead to harm to the wildlife as well as humans in the area. Always keep the wildlife’s safety as well as your own in mind while on wildlife tours. Remember, you’re in their home.
  • Never approach animals during Yellowstone tours. You may just be trying to get a closer look, but the wildlife likely won’t understand that. Always respect the wildlife by maintaining your distance during wildlife tours.
  • Keep your camera ready. You never know when you’ll have a great opportunity to capture a perfect picture during wildlife tours.
