West Yellowstone, Montana, has been hosting Yellowstone National Park visitors since the early 1900s. Over 1.5 million visitors enter the park here annually to experience the unique beauty of America’s first national park and leave with lifelong memories.
Visitors can explore the mountains, forests, lakes, and waterfalls. All while watching wildlife along the rivers or in the open grassy meadows. Open year-round (with the exception of a few weeks each spring and fall), each season brings a new perspective to this vast ecosystem. People from around the world visit to fulfill this lifelong bucket list item. We like to think they all leave with a new appreciation for the wild lands in addition to an experience they will never have anywhere else.
Spend your days angling for trout or hiking and biking on the numerous scenic trails in the area. Keep your camera ready to capture the picture-perfect beauty of the region and its wildlife. In the winter season, snowy landscapes, erupting geysers, and geological wonders provide the perfect backdrop when snowmobiling inside the park. Experience a unique adventure with a guided snowmobile tour.
