Yellowstone NP has a unique place in history. It sits atop an enormous volcano now referred to as the Yellowstone supervolcano, with its unusual hydrothermal and geological features. It was also the first National Park of the United States established in 1872 long known for its geysers, hot springs, wildlife and dynamic landscape. It truly a remarkable area that really just makes you feel different.

Get Away from the Crowds. Let’s Hike a Trail

With 4.1 million visitors annually, the majority of those travelers visit Yellowstone in the summer months. July and August are the prime time months and travel in Yellowstone can be unexpected. Lamar Valley can be slow drive through with the “bison traffic jams”. Artist Point and any other known vantage points can be flooded with people if there’s easy access from a vehicle. This can be a problem when you want to experience nature uninhibited, unobstructed views, peace and quiet and the smells of fresh natural air. Let’s get away from the crowds and hike a trail with llamas!

Join us as we venture into Yellowstone National Parks backcountry for an incredible wilderness experience and picnic. Let llamas carry our picnic setup, food and beverages while you get to hike with a great trail companion. Beginning July 1 each year, we have some great options for day hikes with llamas from YNP north entrance at Gardiner, MT or south of Big Sky, MT.
