If you’re looking for the best guided hiking trip, then you’ve come to the right place. Experience your next trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks with a Scenic Safaris guided hiking tour. Geysers, wildlife and amazing views await in this area of Jackson, Wyoming. Here’s an overview of our most popular guided trips depending on which sights you want to see. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong!

 Guided Tour #1: Old Faithful

 Many people come to Yellowstone to see Old Faithful erupt. If this is you, then the Old Faithful Geyser Basin Hike is right for you. This is a full-day hike where you’ll not only see the popular tourist areas like Old Faithful, but you’ll also go off the beaten path to hike around lesser known geyser basins. Points of interest may include West Thumb geyser basin, Moose Falls, Kepler Cascades, and Lewis Falls.

 Guided Tour #2: Yellowstone Falls

 There’s nothing like the mist of a waterfall to cool you down from your hike. This is what you’ll experience on the guided Grand Canyon Trail Hike tour. This hiking trip is all about the scenery. You’ll follow your guide through the course of the mighty Yellowstone River as it cuts through granite chasms that create the Yellowstone Falls. Like many of our hiking tours, this trip is enjoyed in our “Bigfoot” comfortable luxury van with opportunities to get out and hike around. Points of interest include the Upper and Lower Falls and the magnificent Hayden Valley.

 Guided Tour #3: Snake River

 Part one of this guided tour is a float down the Snake River. Part two is a wildlife adventure where you can roam the antelope flats and check out the Shane Cabins. You’ll also enjoy dinner with a sunset view over Jackson Lake. The North American Moose has been known to make an appearance on the trek back to Jackson Hole.

 Guided Tour #4: Everything!

 If you want to see everything Yellowstone has to offer, including scenery, wildlife and famous geysers, then this hike is for you. The Yellowstone Lower Loop Tour covers all that can be seen in Yellowstone in one day. You’ll cover a lot of miles, hitting up the major points of interest, like Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This is the trip for you if you want to view wildlife in a natural habitat, geothermic wonders and vast forests all in one place.
