Why you'll love this trip
  • Keep an eye out for wildlife like bison, elk, coyote and bighorn sheep as you snowshoe along a groomed road towards Tower Falls tumbling into the valley below.
  • Explore Yellowstone’s unique thermal features as you snowshoe through the Upper Geyser Basin towards Old Faithful and watch it spray over 4000 gallons of boiling water into the air.
  • See the Mammoth Hot Springs travertine terraces where underground thermal activity expands and contracts to create an incredible hot spring feature.
  • Take in the power of one of the more unique and impressive backcountry geysers in the park – Lone Star Geyser – and see the thermal features that give the Firehole River its name.
  • Return to a delicious hot meal each day after exploring the park and spend your evenings chatting in front of the fire at a comfortable hotel with plenty of character and rustic charm.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip involves hiking or snowshoeing from 2 to 8 miles (3 to 13 km) per day with a total trip distance of 20+ miles (32+ km). The maximum daily elevation gain/loss is 750 feet (229 m). Please check the trip itinerary for more details.
  • On this trip, you’ll be required to carry a daypack weighing approximately 8-12 lb (3.5- 5.5 kg).
  • Yellowstone can be very cold in the winter so you must have the appropriate footwear and clothing. To be fully prepared, please follow the recommended clothing list closely. Yellowstone National Park snow coaches have limited space for luggage, so we ask that you have no more than 1 bag or suitcase weighing less than 22kgs, a day pack and a small carry-on bag.
  • Winter weather can be unpredictable in Yellowstone so we may need to make itinerary changes to keep the group safe and well at all times. If this occurs, we will do our best to find comparable activities and experiences.
