Guided Winter Tour Details and Itinerary
Each specific activity and tour will have specific meeting time. The Winter Wildlife Watching tours start earlier than the X-C Ski and Snowshoe Tours to take advantage of the early light. Your guide or a staff member of Yellowstone Guidelines will arrange the activity start time prior to the trip. Most days will start with a pick up from your place of lodging. Entering through the park's north entrance in Gardiner, MT, we will drive to the appropriate wildlife areas or X-C Ski/Snowshoe trails for a day of adventure.
What the trip includes:
All of our tours are approximately 6 to 8 hours in length and include pick up from lodging or hotel. Tours meeting in the Big Sky area will meet at a predetermined location. All of our guides are local and knowledgeable of the Yellowstone region and have a passion for the outdoors. All tours also include a deli style lunch and hot drinks. We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free lunch options. Your guides will bring spotting scopes and binoculars for wildlife viewing.
