- More Opportunities to Spot Wolves
If you're passionate about wolves, this trip offers four full days of wolf tracking in Yellowstone's Northern Range. No one else offers this extensive an immersion in the best place on Earth to maximize your odds of seeing these wilderness icons. Even though the Lamar Valley and Northern Range environs are the world's preeminent place for viewing gray wolves in the wild (and we've never missed seeing them to date), wolves are at the center of controversy, and their increasing elusiveness due to the impact of hunting can make it a challenge to find them. When we do, they are at a distance, and we view them through spotting scopes. But we embrace the challenge with enthusiasm, and that is the allure of nature taken on its own terms.
- A Small Group Offers a Peaceful, Personalized Experience
Our group of no more than 12 guests is further divided into two smaller groups in two vehicles, each with an Expedition Leader, for a quieter experience of nature with less impact on our natural surroundings. Traveling with fewer people allows us to move quickly to areas where wolves have most recently been spotted, and to observe them without disturbing them. Plus, you're guaranteed more personal attention from our Expedition Leader, at your side to answer all your questions.
- Your Guides are Professional Naturalists
You won't find more qualified guides! Our Expedition Leaders are naturalists with in-depth knowledge of Yellowstone's wolves and their habitat. They are in constant contact with local wolf researchers, giving us the benefit of the most current, inside knowledge of wolf locations and activity. Our Expedition Leaders have extensive experience in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and they receive additional training and resources from WWF scientists. We're proud that they are the guides called upon to train other local guides. Read our Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
- Low-Season Travel + Local Connections = Better Wolf Encounters
Traveling in Yellowstone's low season means far fewer visitors. In November, March and April, 90% of the park is closed to both regular and over-the-snow vehicles, ensuring exceptional solitude (plus there’s a chance we could see the season’s first bears just emerging from hibernation in early spring). The months of November and March offer particular wolf-viewing advantages. This is when the most intense wolf studies take place, with more researchers in the field with scopes and telemetry equipment looking for wolves. We have relationships with many of these researchers, constantly communicating with them to up our chances of seeing wolves.
- Meet with Renowned Local Wildlife Photographers
Drawing on our years of experience in the area, we've arranged a private visit with two of the country's premier wolf and wildlife photographers and videographers. We'll visit the gallery of famed local naturalist/photographer Dan Hartman for a personal chat, and we're joined for lunch by Emmy Award-winning wildlife cinematographer Bob Landis, a legendary filmmaker in the Yellowstone region.
- High-Quality Optics to Enhance Wolf Watching
As with all our wolf-watching trips, we provide the highest quality optical equipment to enhance your viewing experience, with high-powered spotting scopes and binoculars available for use by all travelers. Learn how to use digiscoping to capture exciting images, even when wolves are at a distance, as they typically are.
