Group Size
Approximately 12 Travelers
The best nature encounters happen only in small groups, and this is especially true on photography adventures. With just 12 travelers, you’re assured plenty of space for your gear, angling for shots, and personalized attention when you need it. Traveling in Nat Hab's specialty North American Safari Trucks, we maintain flexibility to adapt to changing conditions in order to maximize photo opportunities—we depart early in the morning to chase the best light, remain at a site of specific photographic interest to fully explore its potential, or move to a new destination when desired. On private snowcoaches into the interior of Yellowstone National Park, we limit capacity to just six guests (though the vehicles can accommodate 15). Capacity is capped at three per helicopter on our aerial photography survey of the park, with a window seat for each person. Your Expedition Leader, an expert naturalist and professional photographer guide, is always by your side to help you capitalize on every possible photography opportunity.

Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
Tracking wolves in Yellowstone typically occurs in snowy, icy and/or wet conditions, and temperatures can be extremely cold, often dropping well below zero at night with daytime highs in the 30s. Our days generally start before sunrise and are very full with activities. Hikes and snowshoe excursions require moderate physical exertion. They range from one to three miles in length over level ground and slight inclines, though snow and ice may create rough and/or challenging terrain conditions. In order to view Old Faithful, participants must be able to walk 300 yards over icy, snowy pavement and boardwalk. To explore Yellowstone’s geothermal basins, you must be able to walk at least one-half to one mile over ice- and snow-covered boardwalk, dirt trails and pavement. If you opt to snowshoe, you must be able to go at least one-half mile. Maximum potential distance for snowshoeing is two miles. While much of our wildlife viewing takes place from our vehicles, participants should be prepared to spend extended periods of time outside in very cold temperatures. While travelers are not required to participate in all activities, if you should opt out of any of the day’s scheduled activities, we cannot guarantee that alternatives will be available. Travelers should be aware that activities in the park occur at altitudes between 4,810 and 7,380 feet.
Important Information About This Trip
While the Lamar Valley and Yellowstone National Park offer some of the best opportunities to see wolves in the wild, these animals are still very elusive, and they usually do not come in close range of humans. This trip offers a totally natural, uncontrived experience, and as a result, most wolf viewing is done at a distance through spotting scopes. This allows us to watch the packs go about their normal behavior uninfluenced by the presence of humans. It is important to understand that it is incredibly difficult to see the wolves without the use of a spotting scope (Nat Hab provides spotting scopes on your trip). Often, the best way to get photos of the wolves is with a cell phone camera through a spotting scope. Your Expedition Leader will help you with this technique, called “digiscoping.” While a long lens is a must for photographers, even then, we can't guarantee excellent shots of the wolves. However, the sheer beauty and grandeur of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem provides magnificent nature imagery, and we are likely to see plenty of the region’s other iconic species. Please note that winter temperatures in the region are often very cold, and we do spend a lot of time standing in the outdoors. At times, temperatures may fall below 0° F. On some dates, our itinerary operates in the reverse order of what is listed on our trip page. Please contact our office for details.

Natural Habitat Adventures is an authorized permittee of the U.S. National Park Service.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrival: Arrive by 4 pm in order to attend a welcome dinner beginning at 6 pm on Day 1.
Departure: You may depart at any time on the final day of your itinerary.
