Itinerary

Arrive in Jackson

Fly into Jackson, Wyoming and head to the hotel, located in the middle of town. In the early evening, meet at the famous Wort Hotel for dinner with the knowledgeable biologist. This is an opportunity to ask questions, go over the map to trace the traveling route, and learn what to expect on the trip.

Explore Grand Teton National Park

The expedition kicks off this morning, with the guides picking you up at the hotel to head first to the National Elk Refuge, where you take a private sleigh ride amongst the wild elk. Enjoy lunch and a quick exploration of the National Museum of Wildlife Art, before heading to the Murie Center in Grand Teton National Park. Spend the afternoon snowshoeing around this former home and property of famous naturalists and conservationists Mardy and Olaus Murie.

See Old Faithful & Herds of Bison

This morning, continue the wildlife viewing en route north through Grand Teton Park and into Yellowstone, America's first national park. Change vehicles during lunch at Flagg Ranch and head into snow coaches to marvel at the majestic sight of the Old Faithful geyser blowing off some steam as you walk around the geyser basin. In addition to taking in the park's spectacular geothermal features, witness its impressive wildlife, like the famous herds of bison.

Fairy Falls Snowshoe Hike

After breakfast, take a walk around the Old Faithful geyser basin once again, keeping an eye out for wildlife. From here, board the private snow coach to the Fairy Falls trailhead, then enjoy a 5-mile round-trip snowshoe along a flat surface to the falls, almost 200 feet in height. Then travel via snow coach to West Yellowstone for the night.

Marvel at Mammoth Hot Springs & the Lamar Valley

Depart West Yellowstone this morning and travel on to Mammoth Hot Springs, stopping for wildlife along the way. Upon reaching Mammoth, a legendary geothermal site on a hill of travertine, transfer to vehicles for the drive to the Northern Range of Yellowstone. On the way to Cooke City in Montana, enjoy a snowshoe trek in the Lamar Valley area, known as the Serengeti of North America for its wildlife herds and striking views.

Explore the Northern Range of Yellowstone

Spend today searching northern Yellowstone for elusive gray wolves by snowshoe. While wolves are the star species in the Lamar Valley, make sure to also look out for golden eagles, coyote, bighorn sheep, moose, pronghorn antelope, and bison. In the afternoon, visit with local photographer Dan Hartman for a presentation on the wildlife of the region and a tour of his gallery, followed by an afternoon of wildlife spotting.

Look for Lamar Valley Wolves & Return to Bozeman

This morning, take another drive through the Lamar Valley looking for wolves. In the afternoon, enjoy one final opportunity to snowshoe in the Northern Range before departing Mammoth Hot Springs by vehicle and north out of Yellowstone National Park. Head back into Montana through Paradise Valley to Bozeman, for the final dinner together.

Say Goodbye to Bozeman

Enjoy breakfast before taking the hotel shuttle to Bozeman airport for your homebound flight.
