There are many spots to stop and see the canyon. All of them make you feel small next the huge canyon cut down by the Yellowstone River. If you plan on hiking any of the trails, make sure to take along bug spray. With all that water, it is easy to run across a lot of mosquitos.

We had a wonderul Xanterra guide that was very funny and witty. He seemed knowledgeable about the area. We a great experience everywhere we stopped and explored. The frozen and half frozen waterfalls were breathtaking. The view of the Tetons from Yellowstone Canyon was amazing! Winter in Yellowstone is a once in a lifetime bucket list absolute must!

There are areas of Yellowstone that are not to be missed and this is definitely one of those! If possible opt for ranger guided walks/talks as the knowledge they share with visitors makes for a more complete park experience!

This is by far the best thing in the park for a reason. Perfect for nature-lovers, national park aficionados, photographers, artists, writers, sightseers, basic tourists, and those who have seen it all. Every perspective is a masterpiece to inspire an artist and to awe any viewer. No wait is needed to see this like Old Faithful, no large crowds at... More

This place is one of the highlights of the park! The waterfall is amazing and there are different places you can climb down to see it from different angles!. The trails are safe, but they are not recommended to people with knee or back problems (you need to climb a lot of stairs), however, there are accesible places to look... More
