"We're going to have to ask you to exit the vehicle"

Yellowstone is best seen on foot. Yellowstone Hiking Guides gets visitors off the beaten path. Step into the footsteps of the Old West, walking on rarely visited Native Trails and old Mountain Man haunts. This living museum is home to some of the rarest animals on Earth. See it all safely while making unforgettable memories.

Why hike with a guide? Because you see so much more!

Our expert hiking team safely leads tours for all ages and fitness levels. If you want to see wildlife, join us on the Lamar Valley Safari Hike. If geysers are your reason for visiting Yellowstone, the Lone Star Geyser Hike is the option for you. If you are looking for panoramic views, then the Bunsen Peak Hike is the way to go. Some clients choose all three hikes to see all that Yellowstone has to offer.
