Yellowstone Geology Tours


Visit Yellowstone's Hottest Geothermal Sites with an Expert Guide

Yellowstone is one of the largest volcanoes in the world, with a chamber of partially molten magma underneath which causes all of the fanciful thermal activity in the park. There is no other place like this on earth! It truly is a Wonderland.

Visit several famous features including Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, and other geysers, hot springs, and fumaroles. Learn about the Yellowstone volcano and how the thermal features work.

Be Prepared!

Please remember to bring clothing layers! It is not uncommon to have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in one day. Even in summer, we could start the morning below freezing, and end the day in short sleeves.

Yellowstone has a dry, high-elevation climate, where it is difficult to stay hydrated at any time of year. It is important to drink lots of water in this environment. Be sure to have a water bottle with you. We provide water for refills in the field.
