Pick up in Gardiner, MT or meeting at the Tower Roosevelt Junction
Yellowstone National Park encompasses 2.2 million acres of spectacular flora, fauna, geothermals and waterfalls. Therefore, staying in more than one place is highly recommended. Lamar Valley Touring now operates out of the North Entrance in Gardiner, MT (https://www.visitgardinermt.com), where white water rafting, horseback riding and fishing are offered. You may also enjoy a soak at the Yellowstone Hot Springs, just seven miles out of town. The famous Mammoth Hot Springs are five miles into the Park where you can stroll the boardwalks around the steaming terraces. If staying in quiet and quaint Silver Gate, MT at the Northeast Entrance, Lamar Valley Touring will accommodate you as you drive 40 minutes into the Northern Range to meet at the Tower Roosevelt Junction.
The West Entrance at West Yellowstone, MT gives easy (crowded but fun!) access for a couple of days to enjoy Yellowstone’s incredible geothermal features. Bubbling mud pots, sapphire blue hot springs and erupting geysers including Old Faithful never fail to delight as you visit the many geyser basins. If you’d like to stay next to Old Faithful as she erupts, the modern Snow Lodge or the world famous Old Faithful Inn will give you “ringside” seats every time. A stay in Canyon Village places you in the heart of the Park next to the awe inspiring Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River featuring the Upper and Lower Waterfalls and their many viewing points and hiking trails.
From the East Entrance, located near Cody, WY, the drive into the Park along the Shoshone River offers a unique scenic route with its many striking hoodoos and spires gracing the skyline.
And finally, the South Entrance is the gateway to Grand Teton National Park where the majestic peaks of the Tetons welcome you on your way to Jackson, WY.
Lamar Valley Touring, while focusing on “the Serengeti of America”, also accommodates multi day tours to other parts of the Park from the North Entrance in Gardiner, MT.
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering Lamar Valley Touring!
