Don't miss Travel + Leisure’s December Trip of the Month, Big Sky Montana and Yellowstone National Park. In association with Travel + Leisure Elite Traveler, our travel club for deals on hotels, cruises, and more, the Trip of the Month offers T+L readers exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime itineraries from the world’s top tour operators.

Outdoors specialist Austin Adventures - Adventure Travel, one of our World's Best Awards regulars, has designed this dream winter adventure just for our readers. Stay at the 202-room Huntley Lodge at the foot of the Big Sky resort, where ski or snowboard runs, dogsledding, and horse-drawn sleigh rides are all part of the itinerary. You'll also hear from a wolf biologist about the area's species and join wildlife photographer Ryan Turner at his gallery. The highlight? A day hiking, cross-country skiing, or snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park, which draws fewer visitors during the winter, meaning you'll have the park practically to yourself. This incredible trip is the ultimate adrenaline rush—learn all about this itinerary at, then call the T+L Elite Traveler travel counselor at 855/653-9055 to book the trip now.

And you can still book our previous dream trips: October's adventure-and-city itinerary Argentina: From Patagonia to Buenos Aires and November's arts-and-culture-focused Northern Europe's Low Countries: From Brussels to Amsterdam.
