Features of Yellowstone Park

Yellowstone Geology

Geology of Yellowstone

Yellowstone’s geology is one park highlight you won’t want to miss! In fact, Yellowstone is one of the most geologically dynamic areas on Earth!


The park was home to one of the largest volcanic eruptions known to have occurred in the world, which created one of the largest known calderas (or crater). The park’s geologic activity helped form the mountains, canyons, plateaus, and thermal features that make Yellowstone so beautiful - including jaw-dropping sites like the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

Yellowstone Thermal Features

Out of all of Yellowstone’s park features, its many geysers, steam vents and hot springs are probably the most famous. The park has more than 10,000 hydrothermal features, including about 500 geysers - more than half of the world’s known total!


And while Old Faithful may be the Yellowstone thermal feature best known outside of the park, our Yellowstone tour guides can help you see even more hydrothermal sites - and explore the science behind them!
