ID: TCL-4-184


The world’s first national park inspires awe any time of the year, as any Yellowstone tour would attest. But as you’ll discover on this very special 9-day Culturious trip, visiting the national park during the winter – when bison, elk, wolves and bighorn sheep wander across snow-covered valleys, and Yellowstone's amazing geologic features are even more spectacular in the frigid air – is a whole other... and perhaps other-worldly... experience. Exploring by snowcoach, you'll see gurgling mud pots and steaming hot springs surrounded by frozen landscapes... waterfalls whose cataracts partially freeze into ice bridges... and geysers, like iconic Old Faithful, erupting dramatically into the cold winter air. And you'll meet an award-winning wildlife cinematographer who offers insights into the lives of the park’s iconic species. When Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns started thinking of new trips on which to share their unique stories and experiences, a wintertime Yellowstone tour was a natural choice – and Culturious was a natural fit. In Dayton’s words: “You’ve never really seen Yellowstone until you’ve been there in winter. Once a snowcoach takes you into the interior (the roads are snow-covered), you have this incredible place pretty much to yourself." Small groups, active travel, immersive – it’s Wonderland: Yellowstone in Winter... and it's Culturious.
