Explore the Beauty of Yellowstone National Park

Located in Wyoming and established as the world’s first national park in 1872, Yellowstone encompasses a vast expanse of natural wilderness boasting a combination of extraordinary geology, rugged landscapes and jaw dropping scenery that’s virtually unsurpassed.

Situated atop a super volcano, the park is a geothermal hotspot best known for its dramatic erupting geysers, notably “Old Faithful” which draws millions of visitors every year. But there are numerous more geothermal features to marvel at (some 10,000 to be exact) with everything from gurgling mud pots to hissing fumaroles and colourful hot springs. Throw in dizzying canyons, ancient forests, massive lakes, flower-filled meadows and plummeting waterfalls and you have a truly remarkable landscape unlike anywhere else on the planet.

The park’s other big draw is undoubtedly its teeming wildlife. You’ll find some of America’s most emblematic species here, from vast bison herds and vocal wolf packs to bald eagles and grizzly bears. Yellowstone is also home to elk, marmots, prairie dogs, plenty of birdlife, copious trout and more than 1,000 species of native plants, including an abundance of fragrant wildflowers that set the grassy meadows ablaze every spring.

How best to experience it all? Unlike many of America’s national parks, most of Yellowstone’s landmark features are easily accessible from the roadside. A driving tour along the Grand Loop is ideal for those who want to experience the highlights in a day or two. Meanwhile, endless hiking paths provide opportunities for further immersion in the backcountry and more wildlife watching opportunities away from the crowds. Yellowstone is also a fantastic winter destination with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling drawing visitors in the chillier months.
