Private Yellowstone Geothermals & Hiking Tour

What makes a Private Yellowstone Geothermals & Hiking Tour special is that we can tailor the day to focus on what your group is most excited about seeing and exploring. We can explore the west side of Yellowstone Park at your pace, adding in longer hikes, focusing on wildlife or seeing off-the-beaten-path geo-thermals within the 2.2 million acres of Yellowstone.

Private tours are uniquely crafted and personal for you. They include longer hikes if desired, tasty local snacks, beverages and lunch. Choose from of one of the great park restaurants or a picnic lunch!

Hiking & Super Volcano Geo-thermals Tour (Mid May-October) – This fun tour day will focus on the west side of the Lower Loop road, exploring and experiencing Geysers, Mud pots, Hot springs and Fumaroles (gas vents). Yellowstone national park was created because of how unique to our planet these hot, steaming, bubbling thermal features are and that curious people can safely explore some of the 10,000 Yellowstone geo-thermals. Our guides will craft a day for all ages to experience and enjoy. Lunch will either be picnic-style or at the Historic Old Faithful Inn, built in 1904. We will witness the might of the Yellowstone Caldera, watch Old Faithful Geyser erupt, marvel at the intense colored Extremophiles and much more. This day can include longer hikes through geyser basins and other backcountry locations few have seen. Of course we will stop to enjoy wildlife viewing opportunities!

There are hundreds of miles of hiking opportunities in Yellowstone to explore more off-the-beaten track geothermal and wildlife locations. If you’re interested in doing longer backcountry hikes or several hikes during your tour day, then consider a specialized hiking tour. Hiking tours focus on exploring one side of the Lower Loop–either the west side Super Volcano & Geothermals OR the east side Wildlife & Waterfalls. These tours are great even if you’re not up for hiking but are interested in a slower pace and more in-depth exploration of Yellowstone attractions, or if you desire a shorter tour day.

We had a very knowledgable guide for each tour. We saw many animals and geological sights. Last year, my husband and I did the same 2 tours with Buffalo Roam and the weather was beautiful. We were so very impressed with these tours that I wanted my friend and I to take them this year.
