Experience the magic of Yellowstone’s iconic wildlife Your own local wildlife guide Private and fully customizable tours Small, single-party groups Away from the crowds and into the wild Vast wide open spaces and clean mountain air Breakfast and lunch – picnic style Optics for EVERYONE Safe, fun and educational Yellowstone National Park is world-famous for its abundance of iconic wildlife, stunning vistas and historic conservation efforts to restore wolves and bison. Our highly-experienced naturalist guides and top-of-the-line equipment produce the highest quality wildlife sightings and wilderness excursions. Deep personal knowledge of Yellowstone’s wolves, bison, moose and other treasures fuel our teachings, which appeal to all ages. We specialize in crafting personalized educational experiences with Yellowstone’s iconic wildlife, natural history and ecology around your interests and expectations. Our tours consistently prove to be meaningful and memorable to our guests. Winter is a special time to experience wildlife in Yellowstone, as the deep snows have pushed the wildlife out of the higher country, concentrating animals on the famed Lamar Valley and Yellowstone’s Northern Range. Thousands of elk and bison fill the lower-elevation valleys and grasslands. Abundant bighorn sheep, mule deer, whitetail deer, pronghorn and moose also filter out of the mountains and concentrate where there is less snow, milder temperatures and easier foraging. This migration places them where we can best observe them and observe the predators that come here to hunt them. Our guides track the movements and behavior of Yellowstone wildlife almost daily and know the best places to find the animals you hope to see. Your guide will interpret the behaviors you observe and share stories about the wolf packs and individual wolves that we have gotten to know over the years of observing them. You will walk through visual examples of how animals live in this beautiful landscape, what their relationships are like with the other animals and plants around them and why certain animals might live in one place over another.

Amazing Tour! Great views, stunning sights, and excellent guides. We had an awesome time. We had some special requests which were easily accommodated by the company. The staff were all amazing, the weather was just perfect, and the sights were truly so beautiful.

The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly the highlight of our vacation. The pilot was very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat!

I was visiting from out of state with my family, most of whom had never been to Yellowstone before, and we thought a tour would be a good idea - we're sure glad that we did! The experienced guide made sure that the whole day went smoothly, and luckily for us the weather was great. Highly recommended!
