Winter brings a wonderland to the Yellowstone landscape and is perhaps the best season of the year to find and observe wolves. Dramatic behavior revs up with competition among packs for territory and within packs for mating opportunities. Among the daily sightings are frosty bison lumbering by, bighorn rams gathering on snowy cliff ledges, tall moose nibbling leafless twigs, and prowling coyotes pouncing on unsuspecting prey. But be cautioned--winter participants must be prepared to withstand frigid conditions!

Our premium program includes naturalist guiding for a 6-day, 5-night program with lodging, transportation in-park and shuttle from/to Bozeman, Montana (BZN), park fees, exceptional meals (as noted), and high quality optics for each guest. Join us for an incredible experience with wolves and other wildlife in the wilds of Yellowstone!

The difference between our 2 program offerings is that premium programs include 4 gourmet dinners (not exaggerating) in a private setting followed by a presentation by one of our local experts. For our standard offering, dinners are on your own each evening.

COVID19 Vaccination encouraged for the safety of our guests and staff.
