Winter Yellowstone Tour
Anyone who’s ever visited Yellowstone National Park in the summer knows how beautiful it is. But do you know how beautiful it is in the winter?
Not only it is beautiful, but it tends to be less crowded. Which is perfect given that we are currently in a COVID-19 pandemic!
Another advantage of it being less crowded is that the animals are active. So you may be able to see more animals!
So this winter, you should take the Winter Yellowstone Tour offered by Good Trip Adventures! It is a guided tour with a team of guides made up of Master Naturalists, lifelong Montanans, experts with Master’s Degrees in Outdoor and Sustainability Education, etc. So you should learn a lot!
This is a private tour that will only be taken by your group. Which is another advantage given the COVID-19 pandemic!
Speaking of the COVID-19 pandemic, please note that you are required to wear a facemask in public areas. A facemask will be provided if you do not already have one. They also provide hand sanitizer. Social distancing is enforced.
