While Yellowstone’s most popular wonders like Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring and Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone can be seen without getting too far from the parking lot, there’s so much more of the park to explore when you get off the beaten path.

Join In Our Nature Guiding Services for an off-the-beaten-path trip in the park. The company is based out of Gardiner, Mont.,at the North Entrance to the park and offers guided hikes, vehicle-based wildlife watching tours, winter excursions and night tours.

With more than 900 miles of trails, Yellowstone is a hiker’s paradise. In the summer, book a guided day hike to fit your hiking abilities from a 3-mile flat trek to an 8-plus-mile adventure. In Our Nature guides will help you pick the perfect trail for you and your group. Fancy an even bigger adventure? Book a totally customizable backpacking trip to see Yellowstone’s backcountry with the help of a guide.

As a biologist, In Our Nature’s founder Cara McGary started the company to help others develop a fascination for the natural world. One of the best ways to do that in Yellowstone is by going on a wildlife-watching tour. You’ll start your day at dawn for the best chance of seeing wolves, grizzlies and other Yellowstone wildlife. Premium spotting scopes will help you see far away critters, and you’ll learn about the natural history, ecology, science and on-going conservation efforts in the park.

Yellowstone is a winter wonderland come the first snowfall and the best way to explore is on a pair of snowshoes or cross-country skis. Book anywhere from a 2-3 hour jaunt to a full-day excursion exploring the northern part of the park. Gear rental, binoculars and hot drinks are included on all trips, and lunch is included on the full-day outing.

Want to really ditch the crowds? Book a Night Sky Photography Tour to see Yellowstone after the sun goes down. You’ll get the opportunity to photograph the park’s incredible dark skies and gaze at the mysteries of the night through telescopes.
