How to get here.

West Yellowstone is a very small but quaint little town that spans just about eight blocks. You can fly here by arriving at the Idaho Falls (IDA) airport in Idaho or the Bozeman (BZN) airport in Montana, each about an hour and a half’s drive away from the lodge. In the summer (June – September), you can also find direct flights from Salt Lake City to the West Yellowstone.
