New Year's Eve Yellowstone Expedition
Looking for a romantic way to spend New Year's Eve? Or perhaps you're seeking a once-in-a-lifetime way to bid adieu to 2017 and welcome 2018? We are offering a two-day, one-night tour to Old Faithful from December 31, 2017 to January 1, 2018 that will allow you to celebrate the start of the New Year from within the heart of Yellowstone. Imagine watching Old Faithful erupt like champagne from a bottle at midnight on this truly unique tour! The tour includes all transportation, five meals and one night of lodging at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge in addition to superior educational interpretation from your guides.
Day 1: On day one your guides will pick you up in the early morning at your hotel, condo or home. With your guides, you’ll eat a hot buffet breakfast at a local cafe in Jackson before beginning your journey north. You’ll spend approximately two hours traveling in a wheeled vehicle through Grand Teton National Park, stopping along the way to observe wildlife and picturesque vistas. Approximately one mile south of the Yellowstone entrance you will transition from the wheeled vehicle into a custom Mercedes-Benz snowcoach. Your guides will drive you from the south entrance of Yellowstone to West Thumb Geyser Basin and then to Old Faithful—your final destination. Depending on what time of day you arrive at Old Faithful, you’ll have the opportunity to go on a short, guided walk, snowshoe or cross-country ski in the Upper Geyser Basin. Dinner will take place in the Obsidian Dining Room in the Old Faithful Snow Lodge.
Day 2: After a hot breakfast, you’ll have another opportunity to go for a guided walk, snowshoe or cross-country ski before beginning your return to Jackson. As you recount the fun from the night before on the way back to Jackson you’ll continue to explore and learn about the natural history of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Celebrating this momentous annual event in the depths of the world’s first national park is sure to provide you with experiences you’ll never forget—especially considering the fact that you will only be one of less a few hundred people in Yellowstone during this special time of year.
