Breakfast and Bears

Did you know that grizzly bears are connoisseurs of caraway? Well they are. They have it for breakfast. And we will have breakfast with them – at a safe and respectful distance, of course!

Grizzly bears have occupied wild places for millennia. They probably have occupied the imagination of humans as long as they've co-existed. Grizzlies are iconic symbols of a healthy, wild ecosystem: a place where the many components of life balance in order to maintain a sustainable whole. Grizzly bears are impressive beings that evolved in an environment that shaped them to be assertive as well as diplomatic. Their challenges created an intelligent mind.

Wildlife Watching Without the Crowds

Join us on this exciting outing that combines a one-of-a-kind viewing opportunity of wild grizzly bears feasting, with a hike through their habitat on the doorstep to Yellowstone as well as thought-provoking discussions about the bears' fight for their place on the planet as Earth itself struggles for survival. This area is accessible from Gardiner, Emigrant, Pray and Paradise Valley despite the temporary closure of Yellowstone's North Entrance.

That's right: this unique tour takes place just outside of Yellowstone National Park, away from busy roads and crowds, in an area where mountains and ranch lands meet. You will watch the bears getting on with their day - at a respectful distance with the guidance and expert interpretation of our biologist guides.

Bears are not the only wildlife that can be viewed on this tour. Most of the wildlife found in Yellowstone can also be found here. Moose, deer and elk live here in substantial numbers, with wolves, coyotes, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elusive bobcats and mountain lions and many small mammas, as well. Birding here is wonderful, with mature stands of aspens; complex, mature riparian willows; forests and meadows. These diverse of habitats support more than 75 bird species including sandhill cranes, bald and golden eagles, kestrels, northern flickers, meadowlarks, mountain bluebirds and spotted nighthawks.

We will enjoy a hike of the area after breakfast and explore the landscape beyond Yellowstone, all part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Discussions on this tour include, but are not limited to, subjects such as protection of grizzly bears through the Endangered Species Act, wildlife ecology principles, creative cooperation with local ranchers living closely with predators, responsible tourism and more. This program is made possible through our relationship with the National Forest Service and local ranching families.
