Day Trips

Yellowstone Wildlife Safari

Spend the day exploring Yellowstone’s magnificent volcanic landscape while you search for wildlife during peak activity in the morning. Spend time in grizzly, black bear, and wolf habitat while also spotting other animals on the landscape like elk, bison, coyotes, foxes, eagles, ravens, pronghorn, and more! Witness the beauty of the park against the backdrop of steaming geothermal features, creating a unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

Yellowstone Winter Safari

If your travels lead you to the Yellowstone ecosystem during the winter months, you are in for a treat! The lively, rolling green landscape transforms into a quiet, blanketed, white winter world. Less visitors makes for a more serene, intimate visit to the park. The snow allows for the discovery of exciting tracks and the dark coats of the animals stand out more on the white backdrop. Step into North America’s most primal story of resilience and survival.

When is the best time to see bears and wolves?

While sightings are possible any day of the year, there are months that offer better chances due to increased activity. Springtime (April-June) is a good time; winter has come to an end and fresh resources are becoming available for hungry wildlife. This is also mating season for bears! Fall (September-October) is also fortuitous as bears are actively fattening up for hibernation (a phase called hyperphagia) and the temperatures are cooling off after a hot summer. Winter (December-April)  is a great time for wolf watching, however the bears have retreated to their dens for hibernation and are not present on the winter landscape.

What kind of bears will we see?

We have both black bears and grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem!

How many wolves live in Yellowstone?

There are just over 100 wolves in Yellowstone National Park, making up 10 individual packs. This may not seem like a lot, but it is a healthy population for this apex predator. Knowing their current habits and territories are crucial in locating them, which is why going with a guide is recommended!
