Yellowstone is magical in winter and can be accessed by either snowmobile or snowcoach with both offering spectacular scenery and unique experiences. Traveling into Yellowstone National Park by snowmobile is an experience of a lifetime. We offer two tours for snowmobilers: the Old Faithful Tour and the Grand Canyon Snowmobile Tour. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a less strenuous activity, or if you have children or the elderly, a snowcoach may be a better option, and also visits Old Faithful. For those looking for a more independent experience, we offer a shuttle that can take you up to Snow Lodge at Old Faithful from either Jackson or Flagg Ranch.
Old Faithful Snowmobile Tour
Our Old Faithful Snowmobile Tour is an exhilarating adventure that takes you 45 miles each way to the most famous geyser in the world. Along the way, other popular points of interest such as Moose Falls, Lewis Canyon, Lewis Falls and West Thumb Geyser Basin will be visited. This tour is 12 hours long and includes breakfast and lunch.
Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Snowmobiling Tour
The Grand Canyon Snowmobiling Tour is an exciting tour but not for the faint of heart. This is our most challenging tour, which includes 130 miles round-trip of snowmobiling in potentially very cold temperatures. It is a full day, 12 hour tour that starts at Flagg Ranch and heads up to the largest waterfall is the park, and the second most photographed spot at Yellowstone. Breakfast and lunch are included.
Old Faithful Snowcoach Tour
For a more comfortable and warm experience, our Old Faithful Snowcoach Tour is an option. Because we travel in a “bus,” more miles can be covered in this 12-hour day. Our snowcoaches are the same vans we use for our summer tours, but mounted on oversized low-pressure tires. These tires allow our snowcoaches to travel smoothly over the snow, while keeping you higher of the ground for better viewing of scenery and possible wildlife. In addition to stopping to see Old Faithful erupt, stops along the way may include Moose Falls, Lewis Canyon, Lewis Falls, and West Thumb Geyser Basin.
Shuttle to Snow Lodge at Old Faithful
Lastly, for those looking to spend a night at Snow Lodge at Old Faithful, we offer a shuttle to the Snow Lodge. You’ll have the option to shuttle to and from Jackson or the Flagg Ranch. Expenses for staying at the Snow Lodge should be arranged directly through the hotel. If you are interested in a laid-back excursion, with an overnight event, then this is a great possibility. Imagine staying at Old Faithful in the winter, where visitors depart the park by 3pm except for lodge guests.
Whether you are looking for an active excursion or a relaxed one, we have a tour to fit your needs. Winter in Yellowstone National Park is a fairy-like wonderland, and is experienced by few people since access is limited.
