3 Days in
Day 1: Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic

Day 3: Mammoth and Norris
DAY 1: ARTIST PAINT POTS
Hot springs sputtering mud and small geyser eruptions are your first taste of hydrothermal activity in Yellowstone.
GRAND PRISMATIC SPRING
Marvel at the rainbow colors of the largest hot spring. Visit via the boardwalk at Lower Geyser Basin or take a short hike on the Fairy Falls Trail
Yellowstone's most famous geyser is the star of the Upper Geyser Basin, but there's so much more to see and do here! Don't miss Morning Glory Pool or the other geysers!
DAY 2: WEST THUMB GEYSER BASIN
Located on the shores of Yellowstone Lake, some of the hydrothermal features here bubble right out of its waters.
This geothermal area features bubbling mud, boiling acid lakes, and Dragon's Mouth Spring - which thrashes and rumbles like a cave housing a dragon.
GRAND CANYON OF THE YELLOWSTONE
Yellowstone's most jaw-dropping feature is its massive canyon showcasing 300+ foot Lower Yellowstone Falls.
DAY 3: MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS
Don't miss the picturesque white mineral terraces near the park's northern entrance.
NORRIS GEYSER BASIN
Your last stop is Yellowstone's hottest geothermal area, which is also home to the world's tallest active geyser - Steamboat.
