Great day on the trails
Jul 2021
We are a family of 4 and rented the 4 seat utv for the day and had a blast. I ask a lot of questions and they were patient and willing to answer everything. The utv was clean and ran great. They give you a map of the trails and some basic instructions and you are on your way. The trails all start just yards away from the shop. We went up and down some crazy trails and saw some great views. We discovered the mud puddles at the end of the day not far from the rental location and spent the last hours getting soaked and muddy and it was awesome. Brought the unit back filthy and they just smiled and said that cleaning is part of the rental price. Bring a sense of adventure and some clothes you don't mind getting dirty and you will have a great time!

Great Time!
Feb 2021
We did both Old Faithful and Grand Canyon tours. Lindsey was our guide for the Old Faithful tour and was very knowledgeable and friendly. The trip to canyon was a longer trip and our guide Gary was excellent. Gary even spent some extra time and brought us to Hayden Valley. We seen plenty of wildlife on both tours. My wife and I shared a snowmobile, and it was probably for the best. Remember tour guides are only as good as the group they are guiding so let then know your interest. Dress in layers and be prepared. You have only yourself to blame if your cold. This was a great experience and are looking forward to our next Back Country Adventure. You can find our video on You Tube. Palmers 2021 Yellowstone National Park Trip for our video.

Magical Snowmobiling on Groomed Trails
Mar 2021 • Couples
What a fantastic team!! They outfit with warm suits, helmets, boots- everything you need to stay warm. You can go on self guided tours. All the opportunities for food were closed while snowmobiling so pack a lunch and they will strap it to your vehicle. They give perfect instructions on how to drive the snowmobile- there are no stupid questions. Jerry is the owner and the mayor!!
Loved the pace of this place!! Highly recommend!

Nothing short of amazing
Mar 2021 • Friends
Backcountry Adventures was hands down the best tour I've done. Lindsey was super knowledgeable and went out of her way to make our experience everything we could have imagine. She took us to some of her favorite places (per our request), stopped to let us out to take as many pictures as we wanted and was all around super friendly. I would highly recommend her (as would my family) and Backcountry adventures!

Yellowstone Perfection
Mar 2021 • Couples
Backcountry Adventures and our guide Carl were absolute perfection for our winter tour of Yellowstone. Carl knew every answer to our questions, just like Google. He was respectful of the wildlife while helping us find many different types of animals. We saw Bison, Coyotes, Trumpeter Swans, Canadian Geese, Mallard Ducks, a Bald Eagle, plus Grizzly Bear tracks in the snow. Carl explained the ecosystem of Yellowstone and the balance of nature in the park. We also saw many types of geysers, including Old Faithful. This locally run company is the one to choose for your snow coach tour, and be sure and ask for Carl.

Perfect Medium-Octane Adventure
Mar 2021 • Friends
My friend and I had the best day riding snowmobiles through Yellowstone with our guide, Gary. He was super knowledgeable, great at spotting wildlife, and really made the trip special. We saw bison and coyotes as well as Old Faithful and several other thermal features.

It’s definitely more exciting than the snow coaches, but those would be better for people who want a more relaxing and comfortable experience.

P.S. Don’t forget to tip your guides!

Snow coach - great day
Mar 2021 • Family
We had a fantastic day with Pierre. He was on time picking us up and very knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend this outfitter for your day at Yellowstone! Old Faithful produced an amazing show! The covid precautions taken by this provider are above and beyond. I really appreciated all the effort and felt safe all day. The actual snow coach is really nice and set up perfectly for comfort and snow!

We are fans of Lindsey and Gary! We had a tour to Old Faithful with Lindsey on Monday and then a private tour outside the park with Gary on Wednesday. Both of our leaders were a pleasure to spend the day with and they were patient and very knowledgable. The owner, Jerry, recognized us in a local restaurant and thanked us for our business. If I return to West Yellowstone, I would use this company again. We had a great experience with them.

top notch
Feb 2021
We did a snow coach tour with Darren to Old Faithful. His knowledge and interest in the park, wildlife and history was amazing. It was the highlight of our trip to West Yellowstone. As a family owned business I felt like they truly cared about the experience provided to guests.

If we are back I would absolutely use them again.

Yellowstone snowmobile tour
Feb 2021 • Family
My family of three spent five days in West Yellowstone and the day we spent with Backcountry Adventures was by far the best day of our trip! Jerry, the owner, answered every question I had, returned every email and call, and had a smile on his face every time I saw him. Gary, our guide into Yellowstone, has a passion for what he does and quite the “eagle eye.” Gary spotted all sorts of wildlife on our excursion. We also stopped at numerous geological features on our way to Old Faithful. I would recommend this tour to anybody! My 13-year-old son is already to go back…as soon as he can drive a snowmobile ;)
