Featured Group Trip: Winter American Safari
American Safari Series: Winter Wildlife in Yellowstone
Wolves, bison, moose, big horn sheep & more
Jan 08 - 15, 2022
Experience the wonders of Yellowstone in winter with Bill Given, founder of The Wild Source, and Taylor Phillips, an expert Yellowstone area guide and naturalist. We’ll spend 6 full days exploring the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, with time in Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in search of wolves, bison, elk, moose, bighorn sheep, eagles, trumpeter swans and much more.
Winter here is incredibly scenic, with steaming thermal features and frozen waterfalls in the park’s snowy interior. There are very few visitors at this time of year and travel in the park is restricted to snowcoaches, making for an exclusive experience.
