The Old Faithful Snowmobile Tour is an incredible journey into the heart of Yellowstone National Park. During the tour to Old Faithful, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to experience the beautiful scenery and learn about the history and geological aspects of Yellowstone. Yellowstone has the largest concentration of geysers and hotspots in the world including the most famous geyser of all, Old Faithful. Old Faithful currently erupts around 20 times a day with intervals that range from 60-110 minutes and eruptions normally last between 1.5 to 5 minutes. It is time to check off another item on your bucket list by joining us for the Old Faithful winter tour.
