The Petrified Forest Field Institute can offer guided custom trips for both small, family-sized groups of varying abilities and needs as well as larger commercial bus groups.
Custom trips for small groups
For small groups and families wanting a custom experience, PFFI can provide a naturalist guide for a full or partial day.
If you are are interested in seeing the highlights of Petrified Forest from end to end, PFFI’s guide can lead you to some of the park’s most spectacular features from the comfort of your own vehicle.
If you’d like some more off-the-beaten journeys, our guides can take you into the backcountry while providing fascinating information on the area’s geology, human and natural history, and paleontology.
Learn more on our Guided Custom Trips page.
“Step-On” Bus Tours
For larger groups, PFFI can arrange to have our guide meet your bus at either the North or South Visitor Center and continue through the entire park so you can continue along your way.
Your guide will ride along to talk about key features, providing insight to the biology, geology, history, paleontology and archaeology in the park. We can customize the trip to fit into the time you have allotted for the park and with the abilities and interests of your group.
