This tour travels to our favorite destination in the Park: The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River with the Upper and Lower Falls. The tour travels along the Madison River where trumpeter swans, bald eagles, elk, bison and coyotes are common sites. At Madison Junction we turn north along the Gibbon River with a stop at the nearly 90 ft tall Gibbon Falls. Beryl Spring and the Norris Geyser Basin are also possible and popular stops enroute to the canyon. A side trip to Hayden Valley is generally worth the time as it has some of the best wildlife viewing in the park. This tour is also offered daily. You will need to bring your own lunches or purchase a boxed lunch as there is no food service at the Canyon Area.
