Full description

See the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Norris Geyser Basin, Hayden Valley, and much more on this private tour from Gardiner to Yellowstone National Park. Keep an eye out for hidden gems, local wildlife, and other surprises. Enjoy drinks and meals throughout the trip.

Start in a comfortable vehicle equipped with air conditioning, heat, and large windows for viewing opportunities. Then, beat the crowds for an early morning walk to explore the fascinating and complex Norris Geyser Basin, home to Steamboat Geyser, the world’s tallest erupting geyser.

Spend the rest of the day completing short hikes that take you away from the crowds to best explore, understand, and connect with the majestic waterfalls, deeply carved chasms, and “painted” rocks in the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

Admire the mighty Yellowstone River that remains a powerful symbol of raw, untamed wild beauty, and explore the vastness of Hayden Valley, where the pristine Yellowstone River slowly winds through gently rolling meadows, a prime habitat for grazing animals.
