Yellowstone by Snowcoach: Amazing Winter Waterfalls
There’s more than one way to have a winter adventure in Yellowstone National Park, and if you’re not up for piloting one of our rented snowmobiles, you might love embarking on one of Scenic Safaris’ luxurious snowcoach tours. A Yellowstone snowcoach features either our Bigfoot vehicle or our Mattracks van. Either one makes for a comfortable ride right into the thick of some of Yellowstone’s most famous features, including its waterfalls.
Standing from 30 feet high, the Moose Falls waterfall is a highlight of our snowcoach winter tour. Just west of Yellowstone’s south entrance on Crawfish Creek, Moose Falls earned its name in the late 1800s after explorers of the area saw the abundance of moose that use this area as a habitat. Moose Falls is an early attraction on our Old Faithful snowcoach tour that spans 45 miles so be sure to have your camera ready when you pass by this beautiful spot.
Lewis Falls, along the Lewis River, is another attraction you might see when embarking in our Yellowstone snowcoach. Just two miles south of Lewis Lake, Lewis Falls is located near the halfway point of Yellowstone’s south entrance and Grant Village. Named after the famous expeditionist, Meriwether Lewis of the Lewis and Clark expedition, these falls are a sight to see when passing by on our tour.
Of course, no Yellowstone snowcoach tour of Old Faithful would be complete without a visit to the park’s most famous geo-thermal feature. This geyser erupts during regularly scheduled times throughout the day, blasting super-heated water as high at 184 feet into the air. It’s a sight to behold, and one that draws millions of visitors to the park every year.
If you’re planning a winter getaway to Yellowstone National Park this year, be sure to book one of Scenic Safaris’ exclusive Yellowstone snowcoach tours that will take you past these amazing water features. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the waterfalls and let your senses take it all in, especially if the falls have frozen over. You’re going to love the way your favorite national park looks in the winter.
