Mt Rushmore Yellowstone Tours Salt Lake City
Come vacation with Caravan Tours and enjoy fully guided Yellowstone Mt Rushmore tours. Travel from Rapid City South Dakota to Salt Lake City Utah and enjoy amazing stops along the way.
See Old Faithful geyser first hand as you explore the world's first and oldest national park. Yellowstone National Park was created in 1872.
Yellowstone Park - A World Heritage Site
The creation of Yellowstone National Park is often cited as one of America's greatest ideas. National parks were created to protect and preserve America's most unique wilderness areas (and its wildlife). The goal was to keep the wilderness and the 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.
Old Faithful Geyser & Other Geothermal Features
On our Caravan Mt Rushmore Yellowstone tours you'll enjoy Yellowstone's most 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. Take a fully guided tour and come experience all that Yellowstone National Park has to offer.
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 super volcanoes.
Yellowstone 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, consisting of 2.2 million acres.
Yellowstone Falls & Wildlife
Along with steaming geysers, panoramic views, and pristine untouched mountain lakes, this Caravan Mt Rushmore Yellowstone tour allows travelers to enjoy Yellowstone’s thundering waterfalls. Did you know that Yellowstone Falls is twice the height of the falls at Niagara?
And, since over 80% of Yellowstone Park is forested, Yellowstone is home to abundant and varied wildlife including moose, grizzly bear, big horn sheep, bald eagles, wolves, and free-ranging bison and elk.
Mount Rushmore & Yellowstone National Park Tour
Your Mt Rushmore Yellowstone tour ends in Salt Lake City. Along the way the tour also includes a number of other unique US landmarks. You will get to visit Mount Rushmore Monument, the Grand Teton National Park, and other historical attractions like Crazy Horse Memorial and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, the site of Custer's last stand.
