Wolf Watching

Northern Yellowstone, just a few miles south of Gardiner, is one of the premiere destinations in the world for watching wolves in the wild. While sightings aren't guaranteed, you can drive through the park and find expert information from park rangers and biologists who will be all too happy to share information about these incredible carnivores. You can also increase your chances of a sighting by going out with a GARDINER-BASED GUIDE, who are intimately familiar with the park and where to spot those charismatic carnivores.

Hot Springs

Is there anything more relaxing than soaking in naturally occurring warm water, the snow falling softly around you? The Gardiner area offers three options for hot springs enthusiasts: Chico Hot Springs, Yellowstone Hot Springs, and the BOILING RIVER. If you opt for the more rustic experience at the Boiling River, be sure to follow Yellowstone National Park regulations and only plan to soak during daytime hours.

Cross-country Skiing

Imagine gliding past steamy thermal features, wooly bison covered in frost, and snow-clad evergreen forests. Cross-country skiers of any age and ability will find a trail that’s right for them in Gardiner, Montana, but what makes the experience truly special is the incredible scenery and opportunities for solitude.
