Wildlife Watching


Join us on a full day of wildlife watching.

We use high quality Swarovski spotting scopes to give you the best chance of seeing wolves, bears, and other wildlife in the field. But we don’t stop there. We are outdoor educators, and can also help enhance your knowledge of Yellowstone's natural history, ecology, scientific studies, and conservation efforts.

We depart daily at dawn (5:00 to 6:00 am in summer; 7:00 am in winter).

Tour duration is typically 7 to 8 hours, but every day is different, so it’s important to be flexible.

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

Short hikes can be included upon request.

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

 

Be Aware!

As an effort to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we request that you follow your guide in your own vehicle, or meet your guide at the trailhead. We communicate between vehicles en route via walkie-talkies. In the field, masks are required when you are within 6 feet of your guide or other park visitors. In the winter, snow tires are strongly recommended for travel in Yellowstone. We want to ensure you take home nothing more than lasting memories.

Please remember to bring clothing layers! It is not uncommon to have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in one day. In the winter, that could mean a change from -20 to +40 degrees (F). In summer, we could start the morning below freezing, and end the day in short sleeves. Be prepared!

Yellowstone has dry, high-elevation climate, where it is difficult to stay hydrated at any time of year. It is important to drink lots of water in this environment.

Park entrance fees are not included. Entrance fees are $20 per person or $35 per family, and are good for one week. Annual passes are also available. Please see Yellowstone's website: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/fees.htm or a park entrance kiosk for more information.

Gratuity is not included.
