National Park Vacations
Yellowstone National Park Vacation Packages
Welcome to Yellowstone National Park. Signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone not only became America’s first – but also the world’s first national park. Vacation once in Yellowstone and you’ll quickly understand why.
Bison seem a whole lot bigger when you pedal past them on a bike in Yellowstone National Park. A cowboy song just sounds better sung atop a horse as you climb Dome Mountain. A dip in a hot tub is a lot more refreshing when the tub is actually a natural hidden hot spring. And at the end of a backcountry hike, there's nothing sweeter than stumbling upon the 308-foot Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River.
Yellowstone is immense: 2.2 million acres – an area bigger than Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. Mountain peaks soar, reaching for the sky. Canyons, a palette of earth tones are peppered with geysers, fumaroles, steam vents and mud pots. Rushing rivers feed pristine lakes. Mighty forests make a comfortable home for grizzly bears, moose, elk, bison, wolves, deer, coyote and eagles.
Venture off the beaten path, away from the crowds – on foot, by bike, by raft, snowshoe, cross-country skiis and by horse – on one of Austin Adventures' Yellowstone National Park vacations & tours.

Did You Know?
- Yellowstone National Park contains approximately one-half of the world’s hydrothermal features. There are over 10,000 hydrothermal features, including over 300 geysers, in the Park.
- Yellowstone's Steamboat Geyser erupts without much warning and with no discernible pattern, and when it does, it rockets a column of scalding water 300-400 feet into the air. The last eruption was in April of 2003. When active, the geyser can erupt as frequently as every four days, but it has been known to be stagnant for 50 years.
- There were no wolves in Yellowstone in 1994. The wolves that were reintroduced in 1995 and 1996 thrived and there are now over 300 of their descendents living in the Greater Yellowstone Area.
- The 1988 fires affected 793,880 acres or 36% of Yellowstone National Park. Five fires burned into the park that year from adjacent public lands. The largest, the North Fork Fire, started from a discarded cigarette. It burned more than 410,000 acres.
