Explore the remarkable great American wilderness inside Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks during a sublimely special time of year—amidst winter’s crisp air, bare trees, frosted earth and brilliant thermal features.

Here, unique and iconic wildlife roam throughout, including bison, gray wolves, coyotes, bald eagles, foxes and robust herds of elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, moose and pronghorn. Scan snow-covered landscapes to notice a wide variety of animal tracks. While some species such as grizzly bears hibernate, others trudge, scurry and slide through the snow to survive in winter. The elements of nature are in full sway, and fascinating inhabitants—such as close-knit packs of wolves—are hunting, mating and thriving throughout the greater Yellowstone region that comprises one of the largest nearly intact ecosystems in the world.

Safari through snow-kissed valleys and iconic mountain ranges for a true wonderland of natural beauty and inspiration.
