Yellowstone Expeditions Yurt Camp

Only about 100,000 people visit Yellowstone during winter. Overnight stays are limited to some seasonal lodging options at Mammoth Hot Springs and Old Faithful. But there’s another choice for a special kind of traveler: Sign on with Yellowstone Expeditions to stay at their yurt camp, located a half mile from the rim of the park’s Grand Canyon, and you’ll feel like you have Yellowstone all to yourself. “Rooms” here are private, double-occupancy heated cabins, and four-, five-, and eight-day trips are available. The camp also offers a cedar sauna, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared daily and served around a wood-burning stove in a yurt. The main activities? Wildlife watching, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.
