As one of the first and arguably most pop­u­lar national parks in the coun­try, Yellowstone National Park can be a bit over­whelm­ing for first-time vis­i­tors. Togwotee Mountain Lodge, located right out­side the park near Jackson, Wyoming, offers guided trips that show­case the best of Yellowstone. With var­i­ous tours to choose from, guests can rely on an inter­pre­tive guide to explain the sights instead of fran­ti­cally flip­ping through a guide book.

Togwotee has some of the most spec­tac­u­lar and pop­u­lar snow­mo­bil­ing des­ti­na­tions in North America. Snowmobilers of every level can enjoy stun­ning views of the majes­tic Teton Mountain Range, a match­less wealth of wildlife, and sur­real geot­her­mal features.

Operated out of the Togwotee Lodge, Togwotee Snowmobile Adventures pro­vides guided trips of Yellowstone from the town of Jackson. All of Togwotee’s Yellowstone tours include an inter­pre­tive guide, trans­porta­tion, pho­to­graphic oppor­tu­ni­ties, and break­fast in Jackson, cloth­ing, snow­mo­bile, gas and oil, lunch in the park and trans­porta­tion back.

  • Snowcoach Tours into Yellowstone occur every­day pro­vid­ing a com­fort­able warm method of vis­it­ing Yellowstone—via vans equipped with tank-like tracks to maneu­ver the snow­mo­bile trail into Old Faithful. Visitors can learn from the spe­cial­ized knowl­edge of their Yellowstone dri­ver as they travel through the park.
  • Togwotee Snowmobile Adventures also offers three Yellowstone National Park Snowmobiling Tours:
  • The Old Faithful Tour is a clas­sic snow­mo­bil­ing adven­ture that pro­vides a one-on-one encounter with the finest beauty that nature has to offer. The tour includes pick-up at the lodge, a buf­fet break­fast, a hot grill lunch at the geyser and drop-off back at the lodge. Mileage: 90 miles round trip
  • The Canyons Tour enters from the south entrance of Yellowstone and trav­els up to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone on the east­ern roads of the park. This tour does not visit Old Faithful, but guests have the oppor­tu­nity to explore the Canyons and Yellowstone River, travel to the south gate and enjoy a pic­nic lunch. Mileage: 125 miles round trip
  • The Yellowstone Loop Tour enters from the south entrance of Yellowstone and trav­els up to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone on the east­ern roads of the park. After a short stop at the Canyon, this more advanced tour con­tin­ues on the lower loop of the park to Old Faithful. Mileage: 170 miles round trip

Togwotee trans­lates to “from here you can go any­where” in the lan­guage of the Mountain Crow Indian tribe. True to this mean­ing, Togwotee Mountain Lodge lies in close prox­im­ity to the Grand Loop, which includes Jackson and Grand Teton, as well as Yellowstone. The cen­tral loca­tion of Togwotee Mountain Lodge allows for easy access to other win­ter activ­i­ties such as extreme snow­mo­bil­ing, dog sled tours into the back­coun­try and night and day trips to Jackson.
