A World Apart: Winter in Yellowstone
Yellowstone in winter is a world apart from the busy hubbub of summer. A blanket of snow covers the silent landscape, broken by steam plumes and geyser spray from the park’s geothermal features. Against this crystalline backdrop, abundant wildlife is more easily detected than in other season, and we have our very best chance to spot the park’s legendary wolves. Join Expedition Leader Kurt Johnson for a journey into the wonders of a Yellowstone winter. Kurt is a naturalist, wildlife photographer and author of the park’s most comprehensive field guide. Years in the field have given him intimate knowledge of this great ecosystem and its wild residents, including its wolves, elk, bison, moose and more. Travel by private snowcoach deep into the park’s remote reaches and explore the Lamar Valley, the world’s best place to look for gray wolves.

The Wild Wolves of Yellowstone
In 1995, the gray wolf was reintroduced into the Yellowstone ecosystem, bringing balance back to a natural realm where wolves had once flourished decades earlier. Now, more than 20 years later, the wolf is the apex predator in the park, restoring health to deer and elk herd numbers and delighting nature travelers who make the pilgrimage to the northwest corner of Wyoming in hopes of seeing this charismatic animal that has been the subject of so much myth and misunderstanding. Join Expedition Leader Colby Brokvist on a journey into the world of the wolf. Learn about its history, habits and pack relations, and the ongoing controversy over the place of wolves in the West. And find out why Nat Hab's winter wolf safaris in Yellowstone offer your very best chance to spy these elusive hunters in the wild.
