Visit Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park is a true global icon and certainly one of its most unique landscapes. The oldest national park in America (and widely held to be the oldest in the world), this protected wilderness stretches across the three states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. At its heart is a volcanic plateau of hot springs and geysers that boasts its own micro climate.
At the heart of the Yellowstone Caldera is the largest super volcano on the continent and an extraordinary collection of half the world's geysers and hot springs (including the famous Old Faithful), which attest to the highly active geothermal activity occurring on this volcanic plateau. Alongside the spectacular geothermal activity is an astonishing wilderness of dense forests, towering peaks, deep river canyons and great plains, home to a diverse ecosystem of bears, wolves, elk, buffalo and the world's largest herd of bison. Travel on a Yellowstone holiday to truly soak up this wild corner of America.
