Overview

See Yellowstone Alpen Guides has operated small group and private tours in Yellowstone for 32 years. Our naturalist guides are experts in all things Yellowstone and are fun travel companions. They will help you experience the extraordinary wonders the Park has to offer during both winter and summer. Small group size guarantees you a personalized touch not found on most tours. A company with experienced long-term employees, we pay close attention to detail and quality and strive to be the premier guiding company in Yellowstone and the surrounding area. Join us as we explore this delicate ecosystem that is home to Old Faithful and two-thirds of the world’s geysers; where grizzly bears, wolves and other abundant wildlife roam freely. We cater to individuals, families with children and groups of all sizes. We have lodging and tour packages available; one call will take care of your Yellowstone vacation planning needs. Winter snowcoach tours operate daily to Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. We offer the option of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on our trips, and customized charters are also available. We provide shuttle services to guests staying at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. We operate two types of snowcoaches. One is a converted Ford Vanterra and the other is our classic, historical bombardiers, modernized for comfort and low emissions, made for over-snow travel. Summer tours include Lower Loop, Evening and Morning Upper Loop Tours, Grand Teton Tours, and private customized tours to meet your desires. Whether you are a first time Yellowstone visitor or are returning for your next adventure, we can help plan your itinerary. Your trip can include things like wildlife watching, a day hike to a backcountry geyser basin, a photography safari, and seeing the sites that make Yellowstone America’s grandest Park. See Yellowstone Alpen Guides believes it is important to protect and preserve our national treasures. We generously donate to the worthy Yellowstone Forever, the West Yellowstone Foundation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Trout Unlimited, and many other organizations dedicated to protecting the environment.

The Old Faithful snowmobile tour was on the snow-covered, plowed park roads and not bumpy at the time. Our top speed was about 35-40 mph.
