Side-by-Side Rentals


The town of West Yellowstone is known for many things, mostly our close proximity to the western entrance to Yellowstone National Park. But did you also know that West Yellowstone is known as one of the best recreational locations in North America? It’s true! With literally HUNDREDS of miles of trails to choose from – some of which start right here in town – it’s no wonder why trail riding enthusiasts flock to West Yellowstone every summer.

Choose from any of our models you like, pick out a trail that suits your skill level, and off you go. Before you depart, one of our attendants will give you a free orientation on the side-by-side you select, ensuring that you know how to operate each of the simple controls so that you can have a safe and fun journey exploring the surrounding National Forests on your own.

If you’re more interested in buying than renting, Yellowstone Vacation Tours offers great machines in great condition, at great prices. The maintenance program we follow (every 1,000 miles) far exceeds original equipment manufacturers’ recommendations. This maintenance program and our storage procedures are the reason for rental longevity, far exceeding the mileage you typically see “wear out” a privately owned machine. Plus, each vehicle goes through a pre-delivery checklist before being shipped. Buyers of our machines will receive a copy of our procedures, and if closely followed, they can greatly extend the life of their SSV’s.
