Take an extraordinary winter adventure: a seven-day wildlife expedition to Yellowstone — North America’s best wolf-watching habitat.

Dressed magnificently with frost and snow, and with visitors few and far between, experience an ecosystem when its beauty is more untouched by the outside world than any other time of the year. Hushed and magical landscapes are the setting for steaming geysers, trees covered in ice crystals and the movements of bison, elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep and other wildlife — followed closely by the park’s wolves.

Journey aboard custom vehicles with expert naturalists as you explore and learn about the animals, environment, hydrothermal activity and history of the park. Enjoy a private sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge and meet an award-winning wildlife photographer for a presentation during a visit to his gallery. Each evening, overnight in atmospheric hotels and a park lodge.

Don’t miss this unique experience in the “Serengeti of North America.”
