Service Description

This is a unique trip offered all seasons to showcase the spirit of southwest Montana and Big Sky. We will explore exciting and dynamic geological areas, breathtaking views, view wildlife, and visit grizzly bears, wolves, and the ever-so-cute otters ($15 admission). This tour is great during Yellowstone's shoulder and winter seasons when the West entrance to the Yellowstone National Park is only open to on-snow vehicular travel (vehicles with tracks or super large tires) or when YNP is closed. If you have already toured Yellowstone and want something a little different and more affordable, then this fun tour provides more adventure and discovery. The tour includes exploring the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem area, but outside of the park. Your tour guide, who is a Professional Geologist, will narrate along the way the landscapes that we explore. We can include snowshoeing, hiking, or even stop at an old saloon. Weather conditions will impact what we see and where we go. We can depart your hotel between 7 and 10am. Our Mercedes Sprinter van seats 1 to 11 guests.
