Tis the season to be jolly in Yellowstone National Park! Ride snow coaches across a spectacular winter landscape and celebrate Christmas in lodgings inside the park boundaries, beginning and ending at the historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. The mix of icy air and geothermal steam makes for a surreal winter wonderland during a two-night stay at Old Faithful complete with seasonal festivities. Spot bison, elk and eagles from the big windows of your warm, comfortable snow coach as it treks across the Great Caldera, brining you up close to yawning canyons, open valleys, towering waterfalls and sweeping overlooks cloaked in sparkling winter whiteness.


• On naturalist-led field trips, discover Yellowstone’s volcano, winter adaptions of local fauna, the travertine terraces of Mammoth and the Upper Geyser Basin’s spouting, steaming glory.
• Make holiday memories you’ll treasure forever, reveling in the joy of the season amid the quiet majesty and natural ambiance of a Yellowstone winter.
• Journey to Yellowstone’s Northern Range by snow coach to observe a vital habitat and the bison, elk, eagles, bighorn sheep and other wildlife that live in it.

Activity Notes
