Wolf Watching in Yellowstone National Park Escorted Tour
In 1995, wolves were re-introduced into Yellowstone National Park and now there are several packs within the park. You, with the help of Frontier America, can view them in their natural habitat, with the best viewing available in the winter months.
Both Nathan Varley and Linda Thurston have a lifetime of experience working with wolves in the Rocky Mountains, and that gives you the best chance of viewing the wolves, although sighting is never guaranteed. The tours have a maximum of 15 people with one tour operating per month, whilst itineraries do vary slightly from month to month the one provided is the most typical one.
Here's a day-by-day guide to your itinerary. Feel free to ask us to add other days or ideas and excursions by adding them to your wishlist, so we can give you the best price.View full itinerary

Bozeman to Yellowstone National Park
After breakfast, your adventure starts as you are driven to Yellowstone National Park. The route travels through the scenic Paradise Valley and the rugged mountain peaks. Once you arrive in Yellowstone, the group will visit the famous Roosevelt Arch before visiting Mammoth Hot Springs to walk the terrace boardwalk to experience the amazing hot springs.
You will then travel to your hotel for the next 4 nights, the Absaroka Lodge in Gardiner. A comfortable motel in the town of Gardiner, your room will overlook the roaring Yellowstone River as well as the rolling hills and snow-clad mountainous terrain. The motel is a simple facility with Wi-Fi access, cable television and complimentary coffee, tea or hot chocolate available in the lobby.
A renowned local chef, Zac Kellerman, will serve dinner that will be accompanied by the orientation by the wildlife biologists Nathan Varley and Linda Thurston.
4 nights in Yellowstone National ParkClose
An early start today around 6am, with breakfast served on-the-go, and head off into the Northern Range area of the park. The search for wildlife is often fruitful in this area of patchy forest and meadowland. You will also visit other wolf-rich areas such as Slough Creek and the Lamar Valley. You will mostly view from the road using binoculars and may also see other wildlife such as Elk, Bison and Moose. Wearing warm clothing such as insulated winter boots is advised due to some short treks. After a morning of tracking you will head to the Dan Hartman Gallery for lunch, and view some of his work as a naturalist, photographer and wildlife filmmaker. Dinner will be served at the Animal Track Education Centre.Close
A similar schedule to the day before as you continue your search for wolves. Today will largely focus on the observations of larger packs so that you can better understand these beautiful animals. Lunch and dinner will be served back in Gardiner and will feature an after-dinner session with a guest speaker.Close
Today brings another early start and it will be your last journey into the Northern Range. The hope is that you will get to view different wolf activities and have multiple sightings. Lunch will be followed by a trek to the beautiful Pebble Creek Canyon, snowshoes available. Again, you will have dinner back in Gardiner with an after-dinner session with a guest speaker.Close
