Exploring Yellowstone's Hydrothermal Features

In 1872, congress set aside Yellowstone as the world's first national park primarily because of its thermal features. The park is home to approximately two-thirds of the world's geysers and is the most active geothermal area on the planet. On our pack trip, we visit three thermal regions on the Mirror Plateau and discuss the various types of thermal activity that is found in Yellowstone and the geological history of Yellowstone's caldera.

This trip includes visits to Joseph's Coat and Hot Springs Basin. In addition to thermal features, this area of the park has the highest grizzly bear concentration in the lower 48 states. We seldom enter this region of Yellowstone without seeing a bear.

This is a four-day pack trip and the total cost is $1,800 per person.

This trip has a stationary Base Camp. Check our Calendar for availability and have a look at our menus and packing list.
