Family Yellowstone Adventure

A Fun-Filled Family Nature Odyssey in America’s Favorite National Parks!
When President Theodore Roosevelt visited Yellowstone National Park in 1903, he proclaimed it “absolutely unique in the world.” Embracing the idea of natural beauty as a national asset, he championed the idea of national parks, building a priceless legacy for generations to follow. In the northwest corner of Wyoming, two treasured parks offer a classic family vacation as captivating today as in Teddy’s time. What better way to explore Yellowstone and the Tetons than on this fully guided adventure with our naturalist Expedition Leader? From wildlife to waterfalls, smelling sage and looking up at the stars, Yellowstone Country still works strong magic.

Trip Highlights

  • Explore Yellowstone’s treasure trove of geothermal wonders with our Expedition Leader, who unveils the park’s secrets especially for kids!
  • Meet the West’s most famous wild residents – bison, elk, deer, pronghorn antelope and bears – as we search for wildlife while avoiding crowds
  • Float the placid Snake River through Jackson Hole in the shadow of the Grand Tetons, scouting for elk and eagles
How We Make Your Yellowstone Vacation SO Much Better!
Every year, multitudes of families venture off for an all-American vacation to Yellowstone National Park. Most go on their own, struggling to get reservations for crowded hotels and campgrounds, navigating maps and trying to sightsee with hordes of other tourists. We offer a very different family Yellowstone experience -- a true western vacation, one that avoids all the stress and reveals natural wonders you’d totally miss otherwise. You’ll return home feeling relaxed, invigorated and basking in memories you’ll treasure forever! 

  1. We Take the Hassle Out, and Keep the Fun In!
    When you travel on your own, you spend a lot of time researching, planning, asking questions and poring over maps. This can be part of the fun of preparing for a trip, but in a destination like Yellowstone, traveling on your own also requires competing for reservations, waiting in lines and driving around trying to figure out where to go. As a result, you lose precious time and miss the hidden gems. We’ve taken the legwork and guesswork out: Since our staff has spent years researching and inspecting all the possible routes and out-of-the-way locales, you benefit from our intimate knowledge—and we coordinate reservations far in advance, allowing you to experience and enjoy so much more than most people visiting on their own can accomplish.
  2. A Custom-Designed, Family-Focused Itinerary 
    Our itinerary is geared toward families with a variety of fun activities and hands-on learning experiences, such as a rare opportunity to identify, tag and catalog songbirds. Our in-depth knowledge lets us take you to less visited corners of Yellowstone and Grand Teton where you’ll view wildlife up close without hordes of people around. Over the years we’ve developed relationships with a range of interesting locals, and we enjoy providing our guests with family-focused experiences they wouldn’t have access to on their own.
  3. Small Groups Enjoy Nature More Fully
    Our custom family trips are perfect for your own immediate family, a multi-generational group, or more than one family traveling together, should you want to combine your vacation with friends. Because we divide our groups into small vehicles, we have access to wildlife areas that motorcoach tours can’t get to, and casual tourists don’t know about. We are also able to move quickly to places where wildlife has most recently been spotted and to quietly observe animals without disturbing them.
  4. Expert Naturalist Guides Enrich Your Experience 
    Our Expedition Leaders are full-time naturalists who live here year-round. No one has more knowledge of the places we visit, the behavioral patterns of wildlife, and where and when to be in particular places to see animals. We can't emphasize enough how much this expertise will add to your family’s overall experience! Each Expedition Leader has a formal biology background and is also a natural history educator. They are also in constant communication with local wolf researchers, giving our groups the most up-to-date, inside knowledge of wolf locations and activity. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
  5. Custom Safari Vehicles for the Best Wildlife Viewing
    We use custom-outfitted safari vehicles built specifically for wildlife viewing with roof hatches (kids love the roof hatches!) and large side windows that slide all the way open. Everyone has a window seat, and plenty of room for gear and spreading out. 
  6. Our Quality-Value Guarantee Ensures Your Family Yellowstone Adventure
    With Natural Habitat Adventures, you receive our exclusive guarantee, stating clearly that we will meet the lofty expectations we set forth in our promotional materials. We think this is the most ambitious guarantee made by any adventure travel company. Read our important promise.

  8. Natural Habitat Adventures is WWF's Travel Partner
    Because of our commitment to environmentally friendly travel, as well as the exceptional quality of our adventures, World Wildlife Fund – the world's leading environmental conservation organization – has named Natural Habitat as its worldwide travel partner, a designation that makes us exceedingly proud!
