Yellowstone and Grand Tetons have very extreme weather – in fact, the highest recorded difference in temperature in a 24-hour period was recorded in Montana at over 100 degrees! September can be very comfortable and dry in the day, but get quite cold in the evenings with highs in the 70s and lows in the 30s. It can snow any month of the year and often does!
Intensity – Moderate
Expect to spend up to 6 hours per day walking or hiking (up to 10 miles and 2500ft elevation change) while carrying day packs with water and snacks! Suitable for most fit people with a bit of hiking experience.
- Camping, glamping, and hotel options available
You will want to fly into Jackson Hole or Bozeman Airport.
Arrive in West Yellowstone, MT. After settling into your hotel, meet your guide for an introductory hike in the world’s first National Park!
You’ll spend a full day in Yellowstone National Park, touring geothermal features, spotting wildlife, and hitting the trails with your Good Trip guide.
This morning, you’ll meet your guide for a half-day fly-fishing adventure on the Madison River. In the afternoon, head to the Northern section of the park to explore the Lamar Valley and Mammoth Hot Springs. You’ll want to bring your bathing suit to take a soak in one of the many natural hot springs!
Although it’s your final day in Yellowstone, there’s still time for adventure! Hit the trails on a horseback riding adventure through the Gallatin Range. After your two-hour ride, you’ll say goodbye to West Yellowstone as you head on your way!
