The winter scenery adds a whole new dimension to Yellowstone and the areas surrounding it. Coupled with the snowy landscape, the odds of seeing wolves in their natural habitat is dramatically increased thanks to the expert guide in tow for the duration of this two day tour.
Although inhabited for over ten thousand years, Yellowstone was only truly discovered by North American settlers in the last 150 years. Explorers who chanced upon the region before the 1860s were dismissed as fantasists who had fabricated their accounts of Yellowstone - after all, tales of a land filled with prehistoric forests and giant erupting geysers were difficult to buy into at the time!
The park is an astounding land of wonders in the summer months, but magic truly happens in the winter. The complex icescape stretching northwards into Montana is a great place to see gray wolves - usually elusive, they’re easier to spot in the snow and become more active during the winter months, long after the bears have holed up for the cold stretch. On this two-day tour you’ll get to watch wolves prowl and hunt on native elk, staying overnight at a log cabin and escorted around the area by your own personal biologist.
Also on the itinerary is opportunity to see coyote (cousins to the gray wolf), bald eagles and more bison and elk than you could shake a frozen stick at!
Yellowstone Park, neighbouring Montana, can get quite cold in the winter. This is not as silly a point to mention as it may look - by ‘quite cold‘, we’re talking lows of -20 Celsius. Best to pack some mittens!
The tour is primarily conducted with vehicle support, but can be combined with some more physical activity including snow-shoeing if that’s your kind of thing. Otherwise, the tour is relatively easy-going so long as you don’t mind the biting cold.
