Yellowstone National Park is the world’s first national park – and it boasts views that justify that title! Established in 1872, it covers an area of nearly 9,000km2 in three United States: Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. UNESCO recognized it as a natural World Heritage Site in 1978; it is home to thousands of animal species and has a unique geography that creates its beautiful views.
What makes Yellowstone stand out is its volcanic activity. The Park is centered on Yellowstone Caldera – still considered an active volcano. It is the influence of this activity that creates sights such as geysers and hot springs. The plethora of geographic features makes for unique biodiversity!
