One Day Yellowstone Bus Tour

This one day Yellowstone bus tour departs from Salt Lake City, which is the closest major airport.  You will see so many of Yellowstone's famous sights, including Old Faithful, in just one day!  More information on this Yellowstone tour can be seen here.
Our one day Yellowstone bus tour leaves from the downtown Salt Lake City area.  You're going to be in four states in just one day!  The route travels north up Interstate 15, through Utah, before crossing into Idaho a little to the south of the small town of Malad.  At Idaho Falls we leave the freeway behind as we pass a number of small picturesque towns, including Rigby, Rexburg, St. Anthony and Ashton.  There are plenty of comfort breaks.  Please just let your driver know if you need to stop.             Continued below

The scenery, which has been good, really comes into its own as we depart Ashton, and climb up into the Targhee National Forest.  Island Park - which bills itself as having the longest Main Street in America, but only has a few hundred residents - is just ahead.  A short distance past that we climb up over the Continental Divide, and into Montana!  West Yellowstone is only 10 miles (16 km) away now.

There will be a short stop when we get to West Yellowstone, so we can pick up your lunches and have a comfort stop.  The fun really starts as we make our way into the park!

Apart from the incredible natural beauty and the wildlife, Yellowstone is most famous for its thermal features - the geysers, hot springs, mud pots and fumaroles.  This is what the tour will focus on mainly, and yes, you will watch the world's most famous gusher, Old Faithful, erupting!  We will travel east into Yellowstone, and see how the great fire of 1988 decimated the park, just after we cross into the state of Wyoming. The Madison River is to the north, and there is often wildlife to be seen here, particularly bison and elk.  At Madison Junction we'll turn right or south, and the first geyser area at which we will stop is the Lower Geyser Basin.  You can walk through the basin, taking in the almost other worldly sights, including several geysers, mud pots, hot springs and even a fumarole (we'll explain!).

Next up is the Midway Geyser Basin, home to one of the biggest hot springs in the world, as well as a defunct geyser.  You will see that the colors here are spectacular, as are the steam and mist which often surround the basin.

Old Faithful and the Upper Geyser Basin are just down the road, and you'll have a chance to watch the world's most famous geyser erupt.  There is a lot more to the Upper Basin than just Old Faithful though, and with any luck we'll be able to see other geysers erupting as well.  The Old Faithful Inn is a wonderful old wooden building, and is also well worth a visit. 

Those are the main destinations on this Yellowstone tour, but there will be many other stops as well.  There are various other areas with thermal features, as well as wildlife, and places of beauty and interest along the way.  Basically we will stop whenever there is something to see or to be photographed, and those occur in abundance!

The tour finishes in the downtown Salt Lake area, and can be seen in almost hour by hour detail here, where it can also be ordered
