Snowshoe Old Faithful – January

During the winter Old Faithful is only accessible by snow coach (one of the 80 ways to see the world).

We can’t help but think there’s something more romantic about seeing this famous geyser erupt against the background of a snow-covered landscape.

It’s even better if you’ve just snowshoed 2.5 miles through the Upper Geyser Basin.

Hike Uncle Tom’s Trail – May

The 328 stairs shackled to the walls of Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon lead to an incredible perspective of the park’s Lower Falls.

The spectacular view here rivals the legendary Grand Prismatic Spring for the title of most breathtaking spot in the park.

Head here in May, and enjoy the view in relative peace.

Native American Powwow – June

The Wind River Reservation is one of the best places to catch a Native American powwow.

Once an important ritual of honour, today tribes use these traditional gatherings as a way of sustaining their culture.

Though the purpose may have changed, the pageants continue to orient around dancing and elaborate dress.

3-day Horseback and rafting adventure – August

This trip packs so many back-country experiences into one we don’t know where to begin.

The highlights include exploring Yellowstone on horseback, white-water rafting, a stay in a classic Montana cabin and a night camping beside the river.

Track wolves – November

By late autumn the crowds have gone and adventurous souls have the Lamar Valley’s wild country practically to themselves. Well apart from the resident wildlife of course!

Based out in comfortable lodgings, visitors spend five days on the lookout for wolves settling into their winter territories, mass migrations of elk and bison to lower elevation, and a few grizzly bears searching for a last good meal or two before hibernation.

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
