David Alder of Lava Creek was a fantastic guide for us this summer - late in reviewing as I just came across his business card! We hired Lava Creek for an evening tour (all day tours were full, so book early). Evening turned out to be great though - less busy, and we saw things that we never would have... More

We planned our summer vacation at Yellowstone Park and chose Lava Creek to discover all the secrets of this beautiful park. It's been a great experience thank to David Alder, our guide. David did very well in guiding us through beautiful spots, describing geothermal activities running at Yellowstone and we had a lot of fun with him. He really rocks... More

It is hard to put into words how awe-inspiring our vacation was thanks to our guides!! I brought my two daughters, 5 and 7 to Yellowstone to experience the wonder and beauty of Nature. We spent a few days on our own seeing all the tourist attractions. Then we spent 3 days with Lava Creek guides and that made all... More

We are professional photographers (not kayakers -only second time) and this company designed a trip to fit our needs. Debbie was our guide- and very professional as she led us down the river explaining the area as well as how and what to do. We had such a great experience we now have fallen in Love with the sport and... More

Lava Creek is the place to go if you need to rent kayaks for Yellowstone National Park. They got us outfitted with boats and all the gear we needed -- paddles, PFDs, dry bags, bilge pump -- to have a fantastic paddling trip in Yellowstone's Lewis and Shoshone lakes. The owners were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and they are located... More

We booked our outing about two weeks in advance with no trouble at all. The communication was great, it was easy to find and hassle free. Debbie was a great guide for the kids, as they needed a little more instruction. We had a great time, Hebgen Lake was beautiful, and we had it basically to ourselves. Highly recommended!

What a great day! Yellowstone supplied the natural beauty of both the landscape and the wildlife, but David Alder, our tour guide, made it all come to life with his wealth of information. It is a rare individual that can even make a rock seem interesting. He conveys a deep passion for this park which gave us a respect for... More

There were many companies to choose from, and we definitely made the right choice. We reserved 2 private tours: a driving tour on 6/22 and a hiking tour on 6/26. Our guides were Amy and Dave, respectively. Our kids are 8, 12 and 14 and we were looking for someone to show us things we would otherwise miss by ourselves.... More

From the beginning, Lava Creek was easy to work with, and designed a guided trip for our family that was just what we needed. What a pleasure it was to spend the day with our guides, who were passionate about their love for the environment and wildlife of Yellowstone. We would do it again in an instant!
