Circle of Fire
All Day Adventure
It’s easy to spend a week touring Yellowstone, and if you did you’d still never see all the features that combine to make the world’s first national park. About 70% of the famous features lie along the lower loop of the Park’s figure-8 road system, and the best way to spend one day taking in all you can on this route is on the Circle of Fire. This is the Park’s senior (and signature!) tour, being offered for decades longer than any other. Your driver-guide will pack the day full of all of Yellowstone that he or she can, including showing you Old Faithful Geyser, Yellowstone Lake, Hayden Valley (with stops for wildlife as available), the Upper and Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and the Fountain Paint Pot Nature Trail (where all four types of Yellowstone’s thermal features may be seen). For the classic tour of Yellowstone, ride the Circle of Fire!

A nice full day tour
My family and I, including an 8 and 11 year old did this tour so that our entire family, including my husband who is the usual family driver could just sit back and relax and enjoy the sites. Tom was our driver. He was very knowledgeable and very patient with the kids. He took us to see Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Kepler Cascades, Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, Sulfur Cauldron, Fountain Paint Pots and a couple of other stops. This tour was a nice overview of the lower loop.
Ring of Fire - Fantastic tour!
We are first timers in Yellowstone and while we drove ourselves to a few spots, we wanted to take a tour as well to learn about the area. We contacted Yellowstone and heard about the Ring of Fire full day tour and jumped on it. And we were glad we did! Jackie was our tour guide and she was incredible... she knew answers to all of our questions! She was a great driver that was able to get us into parking areas, regale us will little known facts and show us additional spots that are some of her favorites. We really enjoyed the history of the area and all of the facts she knew for all of the spots we stopped. We saw a lot of animals - from American Bison to Elk and a lot of geysers, mudpots, springs, steam vents, water falls, lakes and more. Such a good tour - worth the money!
Circle of Fire tour
This is the absolute best way to see the lower loop of the park. You learn so much and hit the major highlights: West Thumb Geyser Basin, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Kepler Cascades, Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, and we got a special stop at Brink of the Upper Falls. Nic did an amazing job making sure we saw everything and had a great time! Well worth it!
