About Yellowstone

Yellowstone is no ordinary wilderness. It has the distinction of being the world’s first national park and is a lost world of vast plains, lush meadows and endless forests defended on all sides by towering mountains.


Yellowstone is the most extensive thermal area on the planet with more than 10,000 boiling springs, fumaroles and bubbling mud pots, and more geysers than the rest of the world put together.

The park also combines natural beauty and iconic inhabitants that attract millions of visitors every year. Home to America’s last great Bison herds, the grizzly bear and the grey wolf, this landmark series reveals the grandeur of this unique place as its animals struggle to survive over the course of the vividly changing seasons.

The daily struggles of the wildlife are intimately linked to Yellowstone’s greatest secret – that sleeping right beneath the snow is probably the world’s largest volcano. The fate of everything in this extraordinary wilderness is in the hands of forces more powerful than we can possibly imagine.
