Winter in Yellowstone Private Journey

Wolf Tracking, Wildlife Viewing, and Snowshoeing in a Snowy Wonderland

Experience the majesty of Yellowstone National Park as few others do—in winter, when peace and solitude permeate the land, the snowy forests are cloaked in mystical silence, and the rivers breathe clouds of steam into the frosty air. Accompanied by your private naturalist guide, you’ll journey into the glacier-sculpted Lamar Valley, a veritable Serengeti in the snow, in search of the herds of bison, elk, and pronghorn that descend to this lower elevation refuge, as well as their attendant predators—the iconic grey wolves. Yellowstone’s wildlife is easier to spot in the snow during this “secret season”—you can even see their tracks. The sight of steaming geysers and snowy mountains under crisp blue skies creates perfect photo opportunities, and you’ll have many on your snowshoe and cross-country ski outings on the park trails. All these outings are tailored to your interests, and they offer an ideal way to explore Yellowstone in winter. Having your own private guide maximizes your chances of seeing wildlife and also offers an “insider’s” opportunity to learn about the ecology, scientific studies, and conservation efforts in Yellowstone. Your final overnight is at century-old Chico Hot Springs Resort, a stone’s throw from the Yellowstone River, where you can soak in the big, open-air pools fed by natural mineral hot springs. We highly recommend our day-trip extension by snowcoach to Old Faithful, where you’ll have the famous geyser almost all to yourself!
