Excerpt from an interview with Jason Smith of Scenic Safaris.
Is a three-day, two night a snowmobile, adventure, popular?
The three-day, two night is also popular in that it really goes into what the guests are trying to accomplish. When they really want to know more about Yellowstone, they want to have the opportunity for more wild life. They want to be able to take more photos. Maybe they want to spend the afternoon and do the north geyser basin walk.
The beauty of the park is that you can get more entrenched into the experience that you have to have more time to do it. 90% of the people that see Yellowstone National Park in the summertime are driving through and they’re not getting more than 250 yards from their vehicle and that’s kind of what they see. But they’ve seen Yellowstone.
The folks that are the good target market for this three-day, two night is going to be the guests and the clients that they want to see the thermal features. They want to see some of the beautiful geysers go off. They may want to wait an extra hour and, and just get lost and Gibbon Falls or hanging out at Bee Hive until it erupts again.
There are so many options with the three-day, two night, you don’t have to keep moving. You can take a step back and unplug and kind of really get yourself lost into the environment.
Are the meals and accommodation included on the three day two night package?
Yes. Meals and accommodation are included. The overnight packages are more expensive, obviously in that directly relates to we’re paying for the lodging, breakfast, lunch, and for dinner for all days. We’re going to make decisions based off years of experience that we’ve had in the past.
We’ve, done a lot of packages over the years and we’ve found the best vendors. We found the best places to eat. We found the best places for lunch and we wrap that into these packages so that the guest doesn’t have to do anything other than show up at the right time on the morning and be ready to do something that they’ve probably never done before.
