Start the day with an early morning pickup from your Jackson Hole hotel. You’ll drive for two hours in an air conditioned coach as you travel from Jackson to Yellowstone, admiring the sweeping, mountainous views of Grand Teton National Park. Upon entering Yellowstone National Park, you’ll visit the Lower Loop’s main attractions — including Old Faithful geyser. Gaze in wonder at Lewis Canyon as well as Lewis Lake.
You’ll next be transported towards Firehole River, which is home to the multi-hued, endlessly fascinating, colorful Fountain Paint Pot. Comprised of yellows, browns, and reds that are caused by iron in the mud, the Fountain Paint Pot, as your guide will explain, is one of Yellowstone’s naturally occurring geologic wonders.
Next, drive through the steam filled Geyser Basin towards the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone — a 20-mile (32-km) cleft in the earth that’s home to Yellowstone Falls. Watch as the water flows peacefully through the canyon before plunging over the falls, which is not only one of America’s tallest, but also one of its most famous.
Continue the drive through the rolling grasslands of bison filled Hayden Valley, where in addition to herds of powerful bison exploring the open terrain, there’s even the chance you could spot a wolf as it prowls the windswept grass.
Finally, your Yellowstone tour from Jackson Hole concludes at the Lake Hotel — a historic spot with a view gazing out over massive Yellowstone Lake. On the comfortable drive back to Jackson Hole, you can scroll through your camera and relive the beauty of America’s first national park, or stare out the window as the sun sinks low over Grand Teton National Park.
