Today you will be met by your guide to visit Grand Canyon of Yellowstone to appreciate the sheer beauty of the region’s geographical wonders. The massive canyon was formed over 640,000 years ago from a huge volcanic eruption. Today, the mighty Yellowstone River flows through its channels as steam from the falls and the hydrothermal features in the canyon's walls fill the air.

Visitors can take in the Canyon’s beauty with a hike along the south rim and to Uncle Tomas Trail and Artist point, and then also to the North Rim to the Brink of the Lower Falls. After your exploration, continue to Cooke City to rest for the evening at your selected accommodation.

Morning Wolf Watching with Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces

This morning, you will wake before sunrise to be met by your guide for an early morning wolf watching experience in the Lamar Valley.

While in search of the grey wolves, you will learn about their interesting history and their contribution to the park.

After an exciting morning of watching wolves from a safe distance, enjoy an excursion to Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces. Walk on boardwalks above the steaming hydrothermal features or take a drive around the vibrant travertine terraces. In the afternoon, enjoy looking for more wildlife in Lamar Valley such as large herds of bison, pronghorn, badgers, grizzly bears, bald eagles, osprey, deer, and coyotes.

Grand Prismatic Springs - Old Faithful

This morning will be reserved to explore Grand Prismatic Springs, the largest hot spring in the United States and the third largest in the world. Here, extremely hot water travels from a crack in the earth’s crust to the spring’s surface.

Continuing a short drive south, we will walk around the Upper Geyser Basin to take in one of the greatest highlights of Yellowstone, Old Faithful. Earning its title from its timely eruptions, Old Faithful spews hot water up to 180 feet high with steam temperatures reaching over 300 degrees Fahrenheit!

At the end of this day full of adventures, transfer to your selected lodging near the Grand Teton National Park. ...read less
