Circle of Fire


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!
