Specially designed for winter travel and outdoor recreation, snowmobiling is one of the best ways to explore Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone snowmobile tours showcase the geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, and snow-covered meadows that have made this region famous. All snowmobilers must be accompanied by a professional guide, and all machines must meet strict guidelines that reduce emissions and noise. These regulations help to protect park resources and provide riders with the adventure of a lifetime. Below, we’ve compiled everything you need to know about this sport!
