Adventure Like a Local with Roam Yellowstone Guiding

Personalized tours of Yellowstone with a hands-on, science bent.

There’s no better way to experience a vast and diverse national park like Yellowstone than through the eyes of a local.

Roam Yellowstone Guiding offers highly personalized Yellowstone experiences for all ages and abilities. Book a guided hiking trip to get off the beaten path with an expert guide to explore a geyser basin, search for wildlife, experience the Yellowstone River or hike up a volcano. Is driving more your speed? Book a Summer Vehicle Tour. Your knowledgeable, local guide will curate an itinerary based on your interests and give you an in-depth look at the park. You won’t even have to worry about lunch— your guide has it covered.

Or, if you’d rather tour from the comfort of your own car, book a Roam Ride Along Guide.

Or, opt for a winter trip to experience Yellowstone at its most beautiful. Don’t stress winter driving— your guide will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. You’ll get to experience Lamar Valley, known as America’s Serengeti, where you may spot wildlife like bison, bears, coyotes, moose and if you’re lucky, wolves. Warm up at the end of the day with a soak at Yellowstone Hot Springs, a privately owned business located outside the park, which is included in your tour.
