Yellowstone Park - A World Heritage Site
The creation of Yellowstone National Park Park in 1872 is often cited as one of America’s greatest ideas.
National parks were created to protect and preserve America’s most unique wilderness areas. The goal was to keep the wilderness and its wildlife in their natural state for public enjoyment and for the enjoyment of future generations.
The large ecosystem of Greater Yellowstone is regarded as one of the world’s biggest remaining intact temperate-zone ecosystems. On October 26, 1976, Yellowstone National Park was designated an International Biosphere Reserve and a year later in 1978, a World Heritage Site.
How Big Is Yellowstone National Park?
Yellowstone Park is over 2.2 million acres in size. It is situated atop a huge volcanic basin (a crater or caldera) that was created over 630,000 years ago during the last major volcanic eruption.
The Yellowstone Supervolcano formed a crater that spans almost half of Yellowstone National Park. In fact, the caldera is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined!
Old Faithful Geyser & Other Geothermal Features
Come experience all that Yellowstone National Park has to offer.
On your Yellowstone National Park tour, you’ll visit the Park’s famous geyser, Old Faithful, which is only one of 250 active geysers in the Park. In fact, approximately 10,000 thermal features and almost two-thirds of all the world’s geysers can be found here.
Other geothermal features include mud pots, steam vents, and natural hot springs & pools like Mammoth Hot Springs. These geothermal wonders are evidence of one of the world’s largest active supervolcanoes.
Yellowstone Falls & Wildlife
Along with steaming geysers, panoramic views, and pristine untouched mountain lakes, this Caravan Yellowstone National Park tour also includes Yellowstone’s thundering waterfalls. Did you know that Yellowstone Falls is twice the height of the Niagara waterfalls?
Also, since 80% of Yellowstone Park is covered by forest, there is abundant wildlife including bighorn sheep, moose, grizzly bear, wolves, bison, elk, and the American bald eagle.
Mount Rushmore & Yellowstone National Park Tour
Your Mount Rushmore & Yellowstone tour ends in Salt Lake City. Along the way, you’ll also get to enjoy other unique US landmarks and historical attractions including:
- Mount Rushmore Monument Tour

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
