Why You Should Take an Old Faithful Snowmobile Tour

While summer brings tank top weather, spring offers flowers and newborns, and fall offers a bounty of glorious color, there’s nothing quite like winter. Untouched snowscapes, fences of icicles, frozen rivers and foraging wildlife make this the most wonderful time of the year – even in the deep backcountry.

It goes without saying that you want to experience it all up close and personal, right? Well, here’s your chance: an Old Faithful snowmobile tour.

Fewer People to Jostle You

Wintertime brings a much-reduced crowd of tourists, so it’s a better time to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of our first national park. Plus, on a snowmobile you can get away from the bustle of the lodge and its grounds, and see Old Faithful from a different vantage point.

A Glorious Winter Backdrop

While Old Faithful is impressive any time of year, imagine those hot jets of water blasting against a frozen background, with bursts of steam heaving into the shivery air.

Let’s just say it won’t be your least interesting Kodak moment.

A Range of Landscapes

Getting on a snowmobile makes it so much easier to explore the parks. When you take a national forest tour (like Turpin or Togwotee), you can cruise along the road soaking in the sights or explore the unpaved trail if the opportunity presents itself. Over the course of your tour, you’ll enjoy grasslands, mountains, and forests.

In addition to Old Faithful, you can choose from tours of:

  • The Grand Canyon
  • Gros Ventre
  • Togwotee High Mountain
  • Turpin Meadows

If you prefer, Scenic Safaris also offers a Classic Half Day tour in which you can experience much of the winter magic offered by this untamed corner of Wyoming backcountry.

Super Friendly Guides

Oh, and did we mention that Scenic Safaris employs some of the nicest folks this side of the Mississippi? Well, it’s true.
