Yurts make for great “glamping” spots, and the backcountry yurt featured here is an amazing place to visit during the wintertime. Enjoy the most magical winter getaway and plan to trek to this gorgeous yurt soon!
Get away from it all this winter and plan a trek to this beautiful backcountry yurt near Idaho City. Idaho City Backcountry Yurts manages a handful of great yurts, but the Stargaze Yurt is one of the most popular.
