2 Days & 1 Night Tour – The Wonders of Yellowstone in the Upper and Lower Loops
Day 1: Jackson, WY to Yellowstone- Wildlife and Waterfalls!
Your 2-day Yellowstone tour starts when we pick you up from your Jackson or Teton Village lodging. We begin our adventure traveling through Grand Teton National Park– stopping for wildlife encounters, enjoying spectacular Teton mountains, glaciers, rivers, wild tales of fur trappers and mountain men, and exploring historical sites. We only have time for a taste of The Tetons; many guests add an extra tour day to explore just Grand Teton National Park. We’re on to Yellowstone! The world’s first national park founded in 1872. We’ll explore the amazing geo-thermals, the spectacular Grand Canyon of Yellowstone with Upper (97 ft) and Lower (308 ft) waterfalls. Tasty lunch and healthy snacks throughout the day. We cross Mt Washburn and by evening we arrive to the northern loop of Yellowstone and the famous Lamar River Valley. This is where wolves were reintroduced in 1995, and home to abundant antelope, bear, elk and where the Buffalo DO roam!
Day 1 Lodging: Inside Yellowstone Park or gateway town: rustic lodges and hotel options.
Day 2: Yellowstone Wildlife & Volcano: Geysers & Hot Springs Old Faithful:
