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.

“The package put together by Vacations By Rail went above and beyond what I could have done on my own. They really considered logistics when booking overnight hotels and rental car pick up/drop off. Overall as our first experience with long distance rail travel, I am very happy we chose Vacations By Rail.

“Booking the trip was easy and fast with Ryan's assistance. The trip itself was wonderfully organized, with Joan our Tour Director keeping us well informed throughout the trip. Hotels were great, food was delicious, and Dale our bus driver was wonderful. I'd do this tour again. The step-on guides for Yellowstone and the Black Hills added a lot of great information. The only change I would make would be to take a bedroom instead of a roomette if traveling with two people. The roomette was good during the day but extremely cozy at night.

“My wife and I had seen many of our national parks, but had never been to the northwest. We took a trip in September sponsored by Vacations By Rail to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Canyonlands, and Arches. We met the remainder of our group (46 in all from various parts of the country) in Chicago along with Jennifer, our guide for the tour. The journey from Chicago to East Glacier, Montana, was long (30 hours), but smooth riding. Our hotel for the next 3 nights was the beautiful Lodge, a very imposing log building built by the Great Western RR in the late 1800s. The scenery was fantastic, especially on our Going to the Sun Road on the famous Red Jammers. We saw lots of game, but no bear or wolves. Our 2 night stay in Yellowstone was equally impressive, especially The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Lots of elk and bison along the way. The Grand Tetons were impressive. If we had to pick our favorite park at this point in the tour, we could not. Each was beautiful in its own way. The highlight of our Tetons portion of the trip was the rafting down the Snake River past the Teton Range. We spent 2 nights in Jackson at The Jackson Lodge, the nicest of our hotels in creature comforts. The highlight of Jackson was our evening at The Bar J Ranch for a chuckwagon dinner (those cowpokes sure do eat well) and country entertainment. A must do evening. I, unfortunately, became ill on our trip to Salt Lake City, and had to return home. I give kudos to Vacations By Rail in arranging such a fantastic trip. They employed a wonderful guide, Jennifer, who was so knowledgeable about every place we went. She and our very capable driver, Glenn, arranged rest stops that were not only spaced just right, but in places that were extremely interesting. One was at a bakery in the middle of nowhere that had the best cinnamon rolls. Another was at a picturesque chapel by the Snake River. Another was next to an elk horn bridge and a candy store. Thank you, Vacations By Rail, for a wonderful trip.
