Yellowstone Park is one of those destinations that every family must visit at least once in their lifetime. Imagine a big blue sky, soaring mountain peaks and acres of lush backcountry seemingly untouched by the outside world. Then multiple that by at least 5, and you begin to understand the enormity and magnificence of this stunning national park.
With so many activities and sights to see, it can be a challenge to get everything in, but our Yellowstone tours offer all the enough excitement and fun to deliver a full and exceptional family adventure that won’t ever be forgotten. Here are the top 3 adventure activities every family will enjoy while on an Austin Lehman tour of the park.
Spring vacations in Yellowstone offer guests such a natural setting for hiking that they might not ever want to stop. The fresh air and exercise as families venture out on the trail is only the tip of the iceberg. Hiking as a family really brings everyone together in such an awe inspiring and peaceful place.
No experience is needed to participate in this cool (and wet) river rafting experience. The Yellowstone River is the longest free flowing river of its kind in the U.S. (lower 48 states) with inspiring scenic views.
A gentle walking horseback ride takes everyone up Pine Creek as they venture on their four legged friends into the Mountains of Absaroka. The incredible views of the mountain top lookouts as the family ventures out with 4th generation Montana cowboys will create long lasting memories sure to be spoken of for years to come.

Our family vacation to Montana and Yellowstone Park was our first experience with Austin-Lehman, and we definitely plan to be back! The guides were great. The itinerary was perfect. We ate very well. As a matter of fact, we were treated like VIPs and loved every minute of it. I noticed from the very beginning that you guys treat your customers like family, and it shows throughout the entire trip. And talk about great food! It was diverse and tasty. The Chico Hot Springs Resort was our favorite, and I think our dinner with them was the best! The guides were very friendly and professional. Keep doing what you are doing. Don’t ever change a thing – it was perfect!

After my son-in-law passed away two years ago, my grandson has really had a rough time dealing with the loss of his father. My daughter and I thought a little one on one time with grandpa would be a great way for us to connect. One of her coworkers told her about adventure trips from Austin Lehman so after looking through your catalog we thought a Montana family vacation would be just right.
I really have to commend your company on a trip well done. As a matter of fact, my grandson didn’t want to go home at the end, and his time spent white water rafting really brought a smile to his face. With horseback riding, rafting and time at the pool while at Chico Hot Springs, it was really hard to pull him away. I was just glad to see him full of excitement and joy of living again. Our guides really made the trip fun for everyone, and I couldn’t be more pleased at how the entire trip turned out. Thank you so much for bringing such joy to me and my family.

I’ve never shared a story online before, but with the outstanding Montana vacations that Austin Lehman arranges, I just had to tell others about my family’s experience. I have to say that the trip was outstanding in every way. I could never have planned such a trip for my family. They were right on the mark in their planning from start to finish. Our three guides were very patient with my teenagers and the younger kids on the trip, and you couldn’t ask for more kind and responsive guides for all the families attending. I was personally impressed with the lunches that the guides prepared for everyone – in a word, excellent. There was no reason for concern the whole week because every detail was taken care of. So, if anyone out there is considering an Austin Lehman adventure trip, I’m here to tell you to go for it! You will be so happy you did.

Montana is truly a traveler’s playground for all four seasons. Different adventure trips can be enjoyed all year round. During winter, Montana’s mountains are blanketed in snow and its slopes await skiing enthusiasts’ different moves. Yellowstone Park has different trails for cross-country skiing.
There are snow coaches that will comfortably tour you around the landscape without risking frost bite and the various ill-effects of the harsh winter weather. Snow coaches will keep you warm from the below-zero temperature. If you can stand low temperatures and are ready for a new kind of sport, try snowshoeing. Snowshoeing is basically walking on snow using special shoes. While it may look like an easy sport to enjoy, snowshoeing is great way to lose weight.
Snow mobiles are available for rent so you can explore the area in a faster way. Riding the snowmobiles requires a permit. Because winter can be harsh, it is important to follow snowmobile safety procedures so you can enjoy an accident free ride. You can try sleigh rides for a more relaxing way to explore the scenic outdoors. At the end of the adventure filled day, relax your muscles by soaking them into hot springs. Share wonderful stories with the family over the fireplace while sipping hot chocolate.
