Plan Your Summer Kayaking Trip

Does the frozen landscape of winter have you dreaming of paddling in a kayak on lazy, summer days? Despite the current cold temperatures, warm weather will be here before you know it. Which is why now is the perfect time to plan ahead for your summer kayaking trip. At Scenic Safaris, we offer a unique Yellowstone kayak package you’ll definitely want to check out.

Old Faithful & Yellowstone Lake Kayak Combo

This full-day guided tour gives you the opportunity to see Yellowstone National Park’s most popular attraction, as well as a side of the park that very few people get a chance to see. Your day will begin with a morning paddle on Yellowstone Lake. The quiet serenity of the lake in the early morning hours can feel as though the park hasn’t quite woken up yet. Explore the West Thumb Geyser Basin shoreline, where you can see some of the lake’s impressive geothermal features – both those on land and those under water.

In the afternoon, you will visit Yellowstone’s most well-known feature, Old Faithful and have the chance to see its famous eruption. Old Faithful erupts 17 times each day, with the interval between events varying from 60 to 110 minutes. In addition to Old Faithful, your professional guide will take you to see other park highlights such as Moose Falls, Lewis Falls, and Kepler Cascades. Throughout the tour, your guide will discuss the park’s wildlife, history, and future.

What to Bring with You

Even in summer, Yellowstone’s temperatures are generally much cooler during the early morning hours than in the afternoon. We recommend dressing in layers with a light jacket or an extra layer of clothing. You’ll also want to wear comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen and sunglasses. Don’t forget your camera, but remember anything you bring in the kayak could end up getting wet, so please take necessary precaution.

If you’re ready to stop dreaming of summer and start planning for it, you summer kayak vacation with Scenic Safaris is yours for the planning. Contact us today, and we’ll get your paddle ready!
