YELLOWSTONE IN WINTER

8 DAYS – WEST YELLOWSTONE & THE GRAND TETONS


 

Tour Details

Join Aaron to experience Yellowstone, and its rich wildlife under a fresh, white blanket of snow.

We will spend the first half of our trip aboard a privately chartered luxury snow coach, and we will journey throughout the park searching for the best wildlife activity and landscapes. Traveling throughout the park in these massive vehicles is truly an experience of a lifetime.

The second half of the trip will be spent exploring the northern section of the park where we will search for elusive predators like wolves, foxes, and coyotes, as well as large mammals such as big-horned sheep, moose, elk, bison and mule deer. All the while we will be surrounded by scenic landscapes

Our intimate group size equals better photography and  allows plenty of room for personal space and photographic gear.

If you have traveled to Yellowstone before, but were unable to see this majestic park in the winter, then sign up now, it’s an incredible experience you will remember for a lifetime.

Aaron’s Photo Tours is an Authorized Permittee of both Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks.
