Found a hair in my soup. The service was just 'ok'... not near what you'd expect for the price. i had to ask for tea multiple times, then they brought hot water, and took another 20 min to get a teabag. The ride up the mountain was nice as was the ride back. As for the experience AT the yurt,... More

Yelp.com removed this identical review as a fake review without us even requesting them to do so. It is identical word for word but written under a different name on tripadvisor.

We had such a fun experience! A good friend and I went. The instructions for meeting up with the group was simple and clear. The food was excellent, though the helpings were so large I was super full at the end. No fears about going hungry! The aquivit was amazing in the cider--and great presentation. We loved how the experience... More

We have visited the Viking Yurt twice on our visits to Utah. Always a great meal and one of a kind experience complete with epic sleigh ride, gourmet dinner and amazing ambience. Make sure you try to the aquavit (a Scandinavia spirit with caraway seed flavor) which is served to you, of course, in via a shot ski. Skål!!

If your looking for a unique dinner - The Viking Yurt offers a mountain adventure with a 5 course meal. The over all atmosphere is cozy and comfortable - Sitting at 10k ft the Yurt is reached by CAT. Limited indoor seating and outdoors a bit chilly, but blankets provided help. Load and unload at the base of Park City... More

This is a great place to go for those who love something different and a little adventurous. You travel up to the mid-mountain area of Park City ski resort in an open sleigh pulled by a snow-cat. (They cover you with a blanket, but still, dress warmly!) They could probably get away with average Viking-style food that you eat with... More

Came here with friends for the second year in a row, during the Sundance Film Festival. This year we paid a bit extra and on the way up the mountain sat inside. Outside is fun, but inside is warmer. The food is amazingly good, although prepared in a very small kitchen. The table sat eight, we were a party of... More

Ah sorry about the piano music being too loud. If you had mentioned it to a server they could have changed that. Some nights guests are singing along so it does get rowdy. The pianist tries to read the crowd. Just FYI - the seats on the open sleigh and heated cab are all priced the same. I'm thrilled you... More

Don't let their impersonal onlinereservations-making process put you off. The Viking Yurt experience is well-orchestrated and perfect in every way. If you would rather be jostled and warm, you can sit in in the snowcat ride up and down the mountain. Hint for those in the sleigh-sit facing aft on the trip up, forward on the trip down...and you will... More

Your comment about the reservation process made me really laugh. A very ORIGINAL comment, thank you! Our capacity is SO small, only 40 per night and we are sold out 98% of the winter so our phone rings NON STOP. It would be an fruitless cost to pay someone to answer and return phone calls all day and evening. Our... More
