Group Size
Approximately 14 Travelers with Two Expedition Leaders
Approximately 12 Travelers with Two Expedition Leaders on Special Photo Departures

A very important feature of this winter wildlife safari is the small group size and exceptional guide-to-guest ratio. A low-impact presence is essential for a quieter, more intimate experience of nature and wildlife, and this is certainly the case when we go in search of wolves. Traveling in Nat Hab's specialty North American Safari Trucks, we divide our group into two vehicles, each with a highly qualified Expedition Leader, to ensure a light impact and personalized interpretive experience.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s) and local staff, transportation in Nat Hab's North American Safari Trucks and local snowcoaches, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, gear including warm parkas and winter boots, use of Nat Hab scopes and binoculars, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), optional travel protection and medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
Tracking wolves in Yellowstone typically occurs in snowy, icy and/or wet conditions, and temperatures can be very cold, often dropping well below zero at night with daytime highs in the 30s. Our days generally start before sunrise and are filled with activities. Optional hikes and snowshoe excursions require moderate physical exertion, ranging 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. If you opt to snowshoe, you must be able to go at least one-half mile. 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. While much of our wildlife viewing takes place from our vehicles, participants should be prepared to spend extended periods of time outside in cold temperatures. Travelers should be aware that activities in the park occur at altitudes between 4,810 and 7,380 feet. 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.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip combines the rare chance to see wolves in the wild with an all-encompassing nature adventure in two of North America’s most celebrated wildlife destinations: Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. We have an intensive opportunity to search for wolves during two full days in the Lamar Valley, but that's just one component of a much broader experience that offers a whole host of rewards for the nature lover. Over the last couple of years, we've had about an 85-percent track record for wolf sightings on our trips. Yet these are very elusive animals, and they may or may not come into the open or within close range. Much of our wolf viewing is done at a distance through spotting scopes, offering a chance to watch the packs go about their normal behavior. For those considering the photo safari, please keep in mind that since this trip offers a totally natural, uncontrived experience, the wolves are often far in the distance. A long lens is a must, and even then, we can't guarantee excellent shots. However, the sheer beauty and winter grandeur of Grand Teton and Yellowstone provides magnificent nature imagery, and we are likely to see plenty of other wildlife, too. 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.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

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.
