With 20 years of experience in wildlife biology and guiding, we specialize in educational Wildlife Watching, Day- Hikes, Multi-Day Backpacking and Winter Wolf and Cougar Tracking. We also offer specialized Family-Oriented Tours for your young adventurers. We custom-tailor each trip to meet your specific interests, of course, welcoming the special surprises that Yellowstone bestows upon us each day.
Our tours begin as the first light peeks over the snow-capped Absaroka Mountains and drifts slowly across the Lamar Valley, illuminating century-old cottonwoods and warming one thousand American Bison grazing on the lush valley floor. Wolves howl from high on Druid Peak, and a mother grizzly bear leads her cubs across sage-covered hills in the unforgettable beauty of a Yellowstone dawn. So, come with us and allow that majestic wolf howl, the iconic call of North American wilderness, welcome you to an unforgettable adventure with us in Yellowstone!
We provide luxury door-to-door service to and from your local accommodations.
