Grand Canyon Winter Expedition
The Grand Canyon Winter Expedition brings you to the dramatic Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River and its crowning Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls. These massive waterfalls are often encased in an icy veil. The white snow covering the colorful canyon walls provides a sight unfound during the summer season. This expedition also visits the Hayden Valley, Mud Volcano and West Thumb Geyser Basin. You travel from Jackson, WY to Flagg Ranch (just south of Yellowstone) in wheeled vehicles. Then our custom designed Mercedes-Benz Snowcoach takes you over snow packed roads through Yellowstone National Park. We provide breakfast and lunch along with the use of high quality optics, Yaktrax traction devices and walking poles. National Park entrance fees and gratuity are not included.
