Join us on a private wildlife watching excursion with a local biologist as your personal guide. Yellowstone is a huge place with plenty to see!

Plus, we will spend plenty of time out on the landscape. Although not guaranteed, we have extremely high success rates seeing wolves and grizzlies in Yellowstone. Our highest-quality Swarovski and Vortex spotting scopes give you the best view of wildlife from a safe distance. We also provide binoculars. We can also enhance your knowledge of Yellowstone's natural history, ecology, scientific studies, and conservation efforts. As guides, we get excited about all kinds of observations, so let us know if you have a particular interest.

Biologist Guide

We love using our expert local ecological knowledge to help you see and learn about the wildlife you are interested in. They'll teach you about many incredible aspects of Yellowstone and help you stay safe while you go wild!

Comfortable Vehicle

Wildlife watching is most successful from viewpoints, overlooks and short trails. Using a vehicle helps us cover many miles, so we can see more of the animals you're interested in. Short hikes can be included upon request.

Brunch, hot drinks, and water refills are included. Please bring your own water bottle.

Amazing Optics

Plenty of high-quality scopes and binoculars are provided, so you won't miss out on the action!

Family Friendly + Accessible

Tours can be adapted to accommodate all ages and abilities. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have specific needs or disabilities.

Weather and Elevation

Weather varies A LOT! We can have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in a day. Bring clothing layers. Yellowstone has a dry, high-elevation climate. BYO water bottle and drink plenty of water to have your best day. We provide water for refills in the field.

We did a wildlife tour with Hannah in late December. She was absolutely amazing. Our daughter is a biology/ecology major, and Hannah was a fantastic source of information (she is basically living our daughter’s dream here). We saw bison, coyote, fox, moose, bighorn sheep, elk, mountain goats, mule deer, and many bird species. The sky was beautiful, the scenery majestic, and the wildlife amazing. Even though the wolves didn’t make an appearance, it was a pretty perfect day.

Cara is truly a gem. She customize her tour based on my interests and I got to see so many amazing sights. She was kind and funny and extremely knowledgeable. She somehow knew were all the wildlife was hiding. I had a great time and would not have enjoyed Yellowstone as much if it wasn't for her!

We went out with Ben and he was so knowledgeable about the park and animals. We started the day at 5 am and we were able to see wolves, bears, goats, Buffalo, owls, birds, prong horn and I’m sure more that I can’t think of 😆. We took our time and really enjoyed the day without ever looking at a clock or feeling like we were in a rush. He had awesome gear we used that made watching the animals SO easy. We went on a short hike at the end even. There were four of us on our tour (me and my husband and another couple) and we were all so happy with everything we experienced today. I definitely want to come back and do it again! The wildlife can be unpredictable so we definitely lucked out, but it’s amazing going with someone who knows all their stuff of where to even be looking. Even if we hadn’t seen all the things we did, Ben was such a great guide we still would of been happy with the experience
