Guided Yellowstone tours for kids
Want to give your kids an experience they’ll treasure for a lifetime? Book a private Yellowstone guided tour that connects kids with the outside world. These backpacking trips give you and your family a chance to get away from screens and discover the sights and sounds of nature. Guides travel at your child’s pace, allowing them to explore spots of particular interest to them.
There are several kid-friendly campsites throughout Yellowstone. One of the most popular trips is through the Gallatin District, a short, easy and quiet hike. Kids love backpacking—it’s a lot easier to do than you might think.
For kids ages seven and up, book a Yellowstone Lake Family Trek. The experience begins with a boat ride across Yellowstone Lake. After disembarking, you and your kids can explore the lake shore and campsite, followed by a day hike on the trail. In the evening, Yellowstone crew will join you at the campsite to share stories around the campfire.
Bring the right gear
Whether you’re taking a wheelchair-accessible tour or a tour for kids at Yellowstone, bring lightweight gear, and prepare for any weather at any time. Pack synthetic, nylon or wool clothing—cotton or down aren’t recommended. Avoid bringing extra gadgets, and wear comfortable shoes or books that are broken in before your journey.
The following day, you’ll journey 2.5 miles on an easy hike to the next campsite along the lake. You’ll have opportunities to explore the forest along the way. Once you arrive at camp, you’ll settle in for another night under the stars before hiking back the next morning.
