Group of Friends Holding Antlers in Yellowstone

At a glance...

Duration: 8-10 hours, year-round

Starting Location: Custom Educational Tours depart from Gardiner, MT or Mammoth Hot Springs, at Yellowstone's north entrance. Inquire about meeting elsewhere in or out of the park.

Best for: All ages, up to 6 in our vehicle. Inquire about step-ons, caravans, or meeting in the field.

The details...

  • Is your group seeking a deeper dive into Yellowstone? We love to work with students of all ages, families, and other groups like Scouts, retreats, youth groups, and more.

  • Days are completely customizable.

  • Our Naturalist Guides are master architects at itinerary building and helping you get the most out of your trip. We can augment your curriculum, or help create the trip from the ground up. 

  • Tours can be road-based, or include day hikes.

  • We often bring in guest speakers for longer programs, including biologists, ranchers, ecologists, Tribal voices, and others who can offer expert background on Yellowstone National Park, and across the ecosystem. 

  • Looking for something shorter to enhance your trip? We also offer guest lectures (from an hour to a half day) on any Yellowstone science- or ecology-related topic tailored to your group.  

  • We always incorporate Leave No Trace ethics into our lessons.

  • Interested in a local Yellowstone step-on tour guide in your van or bus? We know how to maximize your time in Yellowstone, and create a meaningful day for your group.

  • Spend one or more days guided by leaders in outdoor education. Your group will be rooted in an understanding of how a place-based education changes your perspective on the natural world. And we'll have a ton of fun doing it!
