Best Yellowstone Guided Tours This Summer

Nothing helps you beat the heat like a trip to sunny, beautiful Yellowstone National Park. Whether you’re lunching in an outdoor café, hiking through shaded woods or splashing on the river, summertime is for immersing yourself in the great outdoors … and the country’s first national park does “outdoor adventure” better than anywhere else.

Looking for a tour or two to introduce you to this most majestic of American wild places? Here are four of our favorite guided tours for summer in Yellowstone.

1. Yellowstone Lower Loop Full-Day Tour

Want to see it all? There’s no better way to do so than from the comfort of a Scenic Safari van as we take you to Yellowstone’s best stops, from its Grand Canyon to Old Faithful. If you want the full experience but only have a day to do it, this trip is for you.

2. Whitewater Rafting on the Snake River

Looking for an adrenaline rush? Then whitewater rafting should be your go-to summer sport. Mad River Boat Trips is here to help you out, with bumping rides that spin you through some of the Snake River’s most entertaining rapids.

3. Side-by-Side Tour

Get a true outdoor experience with a side-by-side tour. These open-air vehicles are tons of fun, removing barriers between you and nature as you tour Elk Refuge, Shadow Mountain and the Gros Ventre Valley. See a lot and do a lot, in not a lot of time, when you take a half or full-day tour of national forest lands.

4. Scenic Sunset Floats

Whitewater thrills not really your thing? Never fear; you can still enjoy the beauty of Yellowstone’s waterways with a scenic float. Better yet, why not take in a sunset? Our Snake River float and sunset wildlife tour is the perfect way to experience soothing river burbles, otters and birds, and those glorious end-of-day colors.

If that’s not enough adventure for you, we don’t know what is! Don’t hesitate to book your trip (or trips!) today, because they fill up fast. If you have questions, please feel free to get in touch with us here at Scenic Safaris and our team will be happy to help you out. In the meantime, good luck and have fun!
