  • Interesting geysers here where the steaming water flows into the river below. This is also where the Grand Prismatic Spring is. Can be a busy place, but worth the stop.  more »
  • In this area you can see few geysers but worth mentioning, like the famous and colourful Grand Prismatic Spring and Excelsior Geyser. A short ride but lovely (although in my opinion the picture from the top of Grand Prismatic Spring that can be found on the Internet create very high expectations that may be a bit disappointed).

  • A beautiful route that takes visitors through some of the most beautiful hot springs of Yellowstone Park (and arguably the world). Are really beautiful, but the thing that surprised me most is that (while being very close to one another) each has nuances and completely different characteristics from the rest of the sources. The most important is undoubtedly the Grand Prismatic Spring, with its larger size and the range of colours ranging from red to a vivid green and a very bright blue. But it is not the only one: the Opal Pool, for example, seems almost a little oasis in the middle of a vast desert. But my favorite was the Turquoise Pool, a nice source, of a blue so intense as to exceed even that of the sky, set in an expanse so white as to look like snow. The entire area is veiled by the steam light that comes from the sources and that helps to create an atmosphere so peculiar and unreal, giving at the same time emphasize those wonderful colors.

Where to stay in Yellowstone National Park

As one of the U.S.'s most popular national parks, Yellowstone provides plenty of options for sleeping within its boundaries. Choose from lodges, inns, cabins, hotels, motels, and campgrounds throughout the park. Most of the structured accommodations lie in the park's most-visited areas, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, Old Faithful Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Staying on the northern side of the lake puts you right in the heart of the park, making it relatively convenient to visit other areas. Resorts, lodges, and guest ranches line the road just outside the park's east entrance, and a cluster of motels and hotels fills the town of West Yellowstone near the west entrance. You can also opt for lodges and inns to the north in Gardiner, Montana, or find nearly every type of accommodation to the south in Jackson, Wyoming. Staying outside the park is fine if you plan to drive through in a day and catch the highlights, but you'll want to spend at least one night inside the park if you plan to explore it more thoroughly.
