Must-See Sights at Yellowstone National Park

A foray into Yellowstone National Park is an experience unlike any other. What draws the millions of visitors each year are the natural attractions that have been millions of years in the making. However, its grand size and scope may seem daunting to new visitors. As the first-ever national park, Yellowstone has amassed countless world-famous attractions across its massive landscape. Luckily for you, we at Incredible Adventures are Yellowstone experts and know what sights you can’t miss on your next Yellowstone National Park tour!

Gaze upon Old Faithful

Possibly the most notorious of all Yellowstone National Park sights, Old Faithful was discovered in 1870 and is most well known for its frequent (and predictable) water eruptions that can soar up to 180 feet in the air! Luckily for you, it erupts about 20 times a day for a few minutes at a time, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch this spectacle live. 

Enjoy the Colors at Grand Prismatic Spring

Though Old Faithful garners much of the spotlight, the Grand Prismatic Spring provides the most well-known visual of all Yellowstone National Park attractions. Most notably, the hot spring’s stunning color makeup of orange, yellow, and green surrounding the deep blue waters offer a remarkable contrast. It is also the third-largest spring in the world and is deeper than a 10-story building! 

Take Millions of Photos at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

Complete with three distinct and dynamic waterfalls, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is an explorers paradise. Spanning 24 miles, the canyon offers numerous hiking trails and lookout points that can take you all day to delve into. Still, if you’re short on time, we recommend heading to Artist Point, which offers an incredible view of the majestic Lower Falls Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. 

Geysers Galore at the Upper Geyser Basin

Even though Old Faithful resides in the Upper Geyser Basin, there is so much more to see. Unknown to many, the basin is home to the largest concentration of geysers in the world, including Castle Geyser, Daisy Geyser, and the tallest predictable geyser on the planet, Grand Geyser. Don’t forget to check out the eerily beautiful Morning Glory Pool on your way through the basin as well.  

Scratching the Surface of Yellowstone Tour Destinations

We’d be lying if we said that’s even close to everything Yellowstone National Park offers. The park itself expands over 3,000 square miles of nature, just waiting to be explored. And if you have any desire to see it to the fullest extent, consider booking a tour via Incredible Adventures. Our Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain Camping Tour is the perfect option for those wanting to spend a few days in the park and take in the sights and sounds at their own pace.
