Winter in Wonderland - Wildlife Watching Day Trips
Experience Yellowstone during the quiet, magic time of year with a professional wildlife biologist as your private guide
The bears may be going to sleep, but winter is a great time of year to watch wildlife! Winter is perhaps the best time of year to watch wolves, elk, bison and bighorn sheep as they interact in the stunning snowy landscape. Many people think that Yellowstone is closed for the winter, but the north entrance at Gardiner, MT remains open all year for spectacular wildlife watching and beautiful scenery.
Come spend a day or several with me in Yellowstone so you can:
- Maximize your likelihood of seeing wolves and any other wildlife you are interested in
- View and photograph wildlife through high quality spotting scopes
- Hear accounts of wolf pack dynamics and stories of individual wolves
- Learn about Yellowstone's natural history, ecology, scientific studies and conservation efforts
All trips depart from Gardiner, MT or Mammoth, WY at 7 am. Trips occur in the guide's vehicle only from October 15 - April 15 and last 6-8 hours. Maximum capacity is 6 guests unless specially arranged.
- Pick-up at your accommodation or chosen meeting location (please specify in booking, if known)
- High-quality Swarovski scopes and binoculars to view the action up-close
- Morning snacks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate; and a full lunch
- The undivided attention of you own local wildlife biologist guide for the duration of the trip
Prices are $550 for 1-4 guests and $590 for 5-6 guests
