Snowshoeing Tours in Yellowstone
Winter in Yellowstone is a magical place, and a hotspot for adventurous photographers. Wildlife, which is often spread all across the park in the summer, groups together in the lower valleys such as Lamar Valley. While many are happy to explore the sparse roads of Yellowstone, those looking for more adventure will want to take part in a private guided snowshoeing tour of Yellowstone National Park.
Why Snowshoe in Yellowstone?
Snowshoeing is a classic winter pastime. Dating back to over 6,000 years, indigenous peoples would use snowshoes as a method of travel to tackle cold and snowy conditions. Snowshoeing provides the perfect balance of hiking and enjoying the solitude of winter. Winter is a quiet time in Yellowstone. The crowds are gone and snow blankets the landscape of the northern Rockies. Winter is a special season in Yellowstone! Experience the winter with a guided snowshoe tour.
