This was a great trip. It's fairly active, which I like, but there was plenty of "down time" as well. I would go back in a heartbeat!

What an amazing experience. Our guide Heather was very knowledgeable and we were blessed with seeing wolves, coyote and fox . The activity was well spaced with down time and learning . Would highly recommend


Plenty of tourists visit Yellowstone in winter, but not the hordes of summer. So if you're hardy enough for cold/snow/ice, this is the time to go. The park is gorgeous in winter, and your guides know how to show you the best of it. Charley and Lee will suggest how to dress for each day's adventures as well as provide lots of fascinating information about the park. Although not everyone wore them, I personally suggest bringing along a pair of Yaktrax or similar traction device. All meals are ample and tasty. Be prepared to get up early and walk outside for breakfast; three days we walked across a small parking lot and two days to restaurants a few blocks away. Some of us took the opportunity to peel off from the group when we'd had enough of various activities; our leaders were very accommodating. We saw plenty of wildlife (think bison!) and geothermal phenomena. Use of Road Scholar provided listening devices made sure we didn't miss any of Lee's fascinating commentary. Our small group (the max of 14) was a collection of wonderful people of different backgrounds and the perfect size for our adventures. Most of us flew into Bozeman and took the recommended group taxi to West Yellowstone, a ride of about 2 hrs. If you do this, make sure you double check the time you need to meet up for the taxi. We stayed in Bozeman two nights before (and rented a car for a couple of days) to allow for airline delays and cancellations and also explore Bozeman while doing some altitude adjustment. There are lots of good restaurants, as well as the Museum of the Rockies and the Grizzly Encounter, both of which we chose to visit and enjoyed. If you're a good walker who can handle cold, snow, & ice, do this trip!


Always wanted to do Yellowstone in the winter and this trip certainly met mt expectations. I would definitely sign for it again having experienced it.


The activities available in this program allow you to actually be a participant in the amazing Yellowstone landscape and does not limit you to just looking down on the Park from the windows of a van.


It was awesome getting to see Yellowstone in the winter! It was great to stretch my comfort level while spending the week in the snow and learning how to snowboard, cross country ski and ride a snowmobile. It was fun getting to know the other participants from all over the country that share a passion for travel and learning. My husband and I highly recommend this trip!


What a wonderful opportunity to see Yellowstone in the winter. Not one but two trips through the park: one by snowmobile and the other by snow coach.


I really loved this program. Yellowstone is truly amazing in the winter. The group size is perfect for this type of trip. Truly an American Wonder!


Experiencing Yellowstone in the winter is not to be missed! The activities were amazing and our leaders were so knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I never thought that at 68 I would drive my first snow mobile, see the glory of Yellowstone and drive through a herd of bison. WOW!!!!
