- Location: West Yellowstone, MT
- Product code: YSDAYLL
Every other day, Monday – Sunday
A Yellowstone wildlife and backcountry photography expert will join us on our day as we explore the Lower Yellowstone Loop, stopping to view and photograph the geological wonders inside the caldera of the Super Volcano.
Driving along the Fire Hole river, we’ll visit key areas such as:
Norris Geyser Basin
Upper Geyser Basin
Grand Prismatic Spring
Lower Geyser Basin
Old Faithful Geyser
We’ll break for lunch at the historic Old Faithful Lodge and Old Faithful Visitor Center before continuing around Biscuit Basin and West Thumb Geyser Basin, reaching the alpine waters of Lake Yellowstone for panoramic views of the Gros Ventre Mountains.
Continuing back along the Yellowstone River, the golden hours of the evening bring us to Hayden Valley, where herds of North American bison feed on the luscious green landscape. Enjoy an in-field dinner prepared by our chef and capture the sunset as elk, moose, bears and wolves emerge into the valley.
We’ll board the Limo Liner once more to make the drive back to the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone. Thank you for choosing Experience Park Tours.
