Expert Tips

Martyn

Destination Manager

“Pack adequate waterproof footwear for your travels across Yellowstone. The terrain varies throughout and can be dangerous without the correct footwear providing the grip and comfort you’ll need here.”

Christie

Destination Executive

“An underrated and often overlooked landmark, the Fountain Paint Pot mud pots are just as spectacular as Old Faithful, but with significantly less visitors.”

Clive

“Bring mosquito repellent. Some might not expect it, but at lower altitudes and in woodland areas, mosquitoes can be plentiful.”

Frequently Asked Questions

During the summer months of July and August, Yellowstone experiences midday highs of around 25°C, with temperatures dropping below freezing as night falls. You should come equipped with several layers of protective clothing, including gloves, hats and scarves, as the temperatures can vary quite dramatically depending on your altitude. From November through until April, temperatures will rarely peak above 6°C. 

The Yellowstone Caldera supervolcano is not set to erupt for another few thousand years, with the scientists of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory reporting that minor seismic activity is not reason for concern.

Visitors will experience the mildest weather and fewer crowds between April and May, and September to November. July and August see the largest influx of visitors, as the hotter weather permits outdoor camping, and schools will break up over the summer holidays.
