Yellowstone National Park in Winter

February 9 – 15, 2020

Led by naturalist Paul Regnier, experience the dramatic natural world of Yellowstone National Park in winter—considered by many to be the best time of the year to visit.  Yellowstone is a nearly 3,500-sq.-mile wilderness recreation area atop a volcanic hot spot. The park features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers. It’s also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope. Wildlife viewing is enhanced during the winter months, when fewer park visitors are present. From frosted landscapes to frozen waterfalls, this is truly a magical season in our country’s first national park.

Trip Highlights

  • Enjoy multiple guided explorations.  Travel by minibus, snowcoach, and on foot with professional guides, whose knowledge of the ecology, geothermal features and wildlife of Yellowstone is unmatched.
  • Search for wolves.  Head out with a Yellowstone Forever naturalist guide to search for Yellowstone’s elusive wolves and other wildlife.
  • Observe wildlife at every turn. Throughout the trip, we will observe wildlife including big horn sheep, bison, elk, and native birds.
  • Visit Old Faithful. Stand next to billowing geysers including the famous cone geyser, Old Faithful—the first geyser in the park to receive a name.


The base trip cost is $2,975, double occupancy, with $775 single supplement. Cost includes 6 nights lodging (including 2 nights in the famed Snow Lodge at Old Faithful and 2 nights in the historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel), most meals (breakfasts and lunches), guided tours, two all-day snow coach tours to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful and Norris Geyser Basin, donation to NRF, and ground transportation after meeting in Bozeman.
