This tour is designed to really maximize your time in Yellowstone. Unlike our 45 hour Yellowstone tour, you can arrive at the Salt Lake City airport after 10 a.m., and still leave on your tour the same day you arrive.
On this 36 hour Yellowstone tour you can be back in Salt Lake, from Yellowstone, only 36 hours from the time you left! In other words, you can leave Salt Lake as late as 10.30 p.m. on the first night, and spend the night at an Idaho motel. The second day is spent touring Yellowstone's lower loop, and that evening you start making you way back to Salt Lake, an hour or so after you get out of the park. You will spend the second night in the same motel, and will then have the opportunity to get back to Salt Lake as early as 6.40 a.m. on the last morning.
Although the final shuttle departs at 10.30 p.m., we suggest you arrive by 5 p.m., otherwise you will not get much sleep on the first night! Shuttle departure times after 10 a.m. are:
12 p.m. 1.30 p.m. 3 p.m. 4.30 p.m. 6 p.m. 8.30 p.m. 10.30 p.m.
Travel time is about 4.5 hours.
Please note your flight arrival time in the comments section, when you check out.
The shuttle back to Salt Lake City departs at about 6 p.m. this evening. You will drive through Montana, before crossing into Idaho, and spending the night in a small town called Rexburg. The hotel is included in the tour price.
Tomorrow morning, you can depart from Rexburg at various times, to return to Salt Lake. Please note that this is an unescorted part of the tour. What this means is that although you obviously have a bus driver with you at all times, there is no tour guide providing a running commentary the way there was when you were in Yellowstone.
The shuttle to Salt Lake this morning makes several stops along the way. You can choose from several departure times from Rexburg. The shuttle will pick you up at your hotel, and drop you off at the Salt Lake City airport, or at a central downtown location opposite Temple Square, where the tour ends.
