Yellowstone Winter Wonderland (AW)

7 Day Tour from Jackson to Jackson

2017 Tour Details

The only thing more impressive than Yellowstone National Park in the summertime is Yellowstone in winter—a time when the place seems magical! On this Yellowstone National Park winter tour, see Old Faithful without the crowds, marvel at the snowy landscapes, admire the bison as they shake off the snow, and be amazed by steaming geysers. Winter offers some of the best wildlife viewing because of the color contrasts between the animals and the snow, so have your cameras ready for animals such as bison, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, deer, and coyote.

Enjoy a walking tour of the Upper Geyser Basin, the greatest geothermal basin on Earth, where you’ll witness Old Faithful. Travel via snowcoach to some of the famous places in the park, and take an excursion to Lamar Valley, known to locals as the Serengeti of Yellowstone. This unique experience arranged by Globus gives you an opportunity to spot wildlife such as elk, bison, moose, wolves, coyotes, and more.

On this magical Yellowstone winter vacation, you will also tour Grand Teton National Park and enjoy a sleigh ride in Jackson’s National Elk Refuge, where as many as 10,000 elk congregate each winter—another special experience offered by Globus! You’ll have leisure time to participate in some of the outdoor activities, such as snowshoeing or cross-country skiing, or you may choose to relax with a warm drink by a crackling fire. Regardless, you’re sure to come away from this Yellowstone National Park winter tour with some amazing stories, fond memories, and unique photos.
