The much anticipated Winter, 2020 trip to Yellowstone National Park will be hosted again this winter by Bob Waters and  Chris Dekle. You won’t want to miss it. Our past 6 trips have been loved by all who went and we have a lot of former participants who are waiting to go again on this trip.

DATES In-Park: February 8th through the 13th, 2020.


This trip sells out quickly so don’t delay

Because of new insurance requirements, you must be a GNPA member before you can register for the trip.

Please note, registration will open in August. We will announce in advance when it will open.

  • Five full days shooting inside Yellowstone NP in new tundra-tired buses.  Each bus holds 13 people, however, we are limiting the number of people per bus so there will be plenty of room for you and your gear.
  • Park Entrance Fees. But bring you National Park Pass if you have one, it may be needed.
  • Lodging at the 3 Bear Lodge, Double occupancy. Single rooms are available.
  • A breakfast burrito to go in the morning and coffee for those staying at the 3 Bear Lodge.  An optional deli box lunch can be individually purchased each day from the 3 Bear Restaurant. (Order the day before and pay in advance.)
  • Your transportation from Bozeman, MT to the West Yellowstone and back to Bozeman.

What’s the trip like? Watch Videos From Prior Trips What not included:

  • Your travel to Bozeman, MT and back.
  • Meals. Your food and bar bill are on you for the entire trip. We’ve found people want to eat differently and one size doesn’t work.  With lots of places in W. Yellowstone to eat, people can easily pick what and when they want to eat without being shoehorned into one plan.
  • THIS IS NOT A PHOTO WORKSHOP.  It is a group rate trip put together for the benefit of the GNPA members so we can go to great places and photograph. We do not offer formal instruction on these trips.  Of course, if you do need help with about anything photographic, our members all pitch in and help you with any questions you have and give you good suggestions if you ask.

Trip Fee:

  • Double Occupancy: $2,395 per person You are responsible for finding a roommate. (8 rooms available).
  • Single Occupancy: $2,945. Maximum of 4 rooms available.
  • Staying in a Different Location Discount: $595.00 (If you elect to stay elsewhere or bring your own motor home, igloo, etc.)

  • We will be staying at the Three Bears Inn. It has an excellent restaurant we have eaten in before and it’s close to a number of other places to eat.
  • We will eat lunch on the go while in the park since we stay in the park all day. If you would like to have a breakfast box made for you to carry along, you can arrange for them at the 3 Bear Restaurant when you get to the hotel.  You pay for what you want when you order.
