Yellowstone National Park Tours

Train to Yellowstone

When stories of Yellowstone first made their way back east in the 19th century, people were skeptical. The early visitors' descriptions of impossibly deep canyons, enormous herds of roaming bison and boiling water erupting from the ground were beyond the realm of belief. The rumors of this geological wonderland so captivated the public's imagination that the United States government sent an expedition to verify the claims. It was all true. In 1872, Yellowstone became the world's first national park.

Sprawling across 3,468 square miles, Yellowstone presents endless opportunities for adventure and exploration. In Geyser Country, experience the most active geothermal area in the world. While Old Faithful never fails to impress, do not overlook the other spectacular features like hot springs, fumaroles and the gorgeous Artists' Paint Pots on your trip to Yellowstone. Also not to be missed is canoe- and kayak-friendly Lake Country, home to giant, pristine Yellowstone Lake, head to the aptly named Inspiration Point for breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and Yellowstone River. See and hear the thundering Yellowstone Falls. Look for roaming wildlife in the Lamar and Hayden Valleys. You never know what lies ahead in this magnificent wild space.

Yellowstone vacation packages allow travelers to explore all of this and more as they embark on bus tours and excursions through both the upper loop and lower loop of the park. As if this national treasure were not impressive enough on its own, many vacation tours include time in the West's other spectacular parks, as well. Select from tours on Amtrak to Yellowstone, our vacations of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, trip packages that travel from Mount Rushmore to Yellowstone and vacation tours that go to parks such as Zion, Bryce Canyon, Glacier, Canyonlands and Arches in addition to highlighting the granddaddy of them all, Yellowstone.

“It was a wonderful trip, with the tour guide Sally Bell and bus driver Alex Hess being the best part. . All the museums, animals, and scenery were fantastic. The raft trip on the Snake River and the jeep ride through Custer State Park were the best parts of the trip. The weakest part of the tour was the California Zephyr train. The observation deck was great and the food was good, but the roomette was too small, the train too jerky, and the whole train showing that it was in need of a good cleaning. But we loved the trip and thought it was an awesome itinerary. Thank you.

“The train trip from Chicago to Whitefish, MT was a difficult ride. Staying in the coach seats was really uncomfortable. I believe that there was a defect in the seat I was in; a bent hard wire on the right side was irritating my leg. My husband had a VERY difficult time sleeping, or getting any rest in those seats. I would have considered the bedroom or the other option, but I believed the prices to be OUTRAGEOUS! In December, I was quoted a price over $1K for ONE NIGHT! In May, the price had increased to OVER THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!! Had we flown to Whitefish, or somewhere close by, I think the overall trip would have been much better. I realize that your name is VACATIONS BY RAIL, however, much of the time on the train was during darkness, so not much scenery was available.

California Zephyr with Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

“The views were amazing! We had a car rental waiting for us at Salt Lake City. We enjoyed driving ourselves into Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons (and they are GRAND!), and Yellowstone. Simply amazing! The bedroom was small and cramped, but served it's purpose. The toilet in our room did not flush appropriately so we ended up with a smell in our space. The hotels were great, as well as all the other accommodations made. As senior adults, it was part of our bucket list to experience train travel. We did, but seriously doubt we will ever travel this way again. There should be some sort of rotation system placed on the observation car. This is one of the most scenic train trips. People should NOT be allowed to camp out in there with no disregard for others on the train.
