The Best Way to Experience the Yellowstone Geyser

Old Faithful is famous across the world, drawing tourists from all continents to witness its clocklike magnificence.

Did you know, however, that there is more than one way to experience this marvel of nature? It’s true. While sitting at the official visitor’s area at Old Faithful Inn is a nice way to rest the bones and enjoy an ice cream cone, it’s an even more awe-inspiring experience from the remoteness of nature.

Interested in seeing the geyser as it was seen for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? Here’s the best way to head back to the land for a viewing.

Combine Old Faithful with Wildlife Viewing

Yellowstone is famous for its sweeping prairies and mountain vistas, as well as the free-roaming bison, deer, elk, wolves and more.

You’re unlikely to see much from the steps of the inn or visitors center, but from way out in the backcountry, you’re bound to enjoy an unspoiled view not only of the geyser but of the animal life for which the park is so prized.

Include the Yellowstone Geyser as Part of a Full Tour

Looking forward to seeing Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone in one day? It’s always better to see Yellowstone along with all the other great sights, so you can contextualize this natural area in its homeland and bring back a full set of memories.

When you combine Old Faithful with our Yellowstone Lower Loop Tour, you’ll also see West Thumb geyser basin, Fountain Paint Pots, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and other points of interest, depending on weather, interest, and accessibility.
