Renowned for its family travel opportunities, Austin Adventures is offering a special trip for families in 2014. Its Yellowstone in Winter tour immerses families in the splendor of Yellowstone’s snow-covered scenery, with a wide variety of winter activities and adventure. The journey departs roundtrip from  Bozeman, Mont., venturing through snowy Paradise Valley on the way to Mammoth Hot Springs. Next, families can try out snowshoes while visiting Old Faithful and cross country ski along Spring Creek. The trip also includes an opportunity to go ice skating and relax in Chico Hot Springs. At the end of the tour, a mushing lesson prepares the group for a dogsledding adventure through Paradise Valley on the way back to Bozeman. The five-day family tours run Feb. 16-20 and Dec. 21-25 and start at $2,298 per person. www.austinadventures.com
