Aboard specially equipped vehicles that allow for both comfort and proximity to incredible wildlife, you’ll view wolves, bison, elk, and other creatures that call the park home. Visiting Yellowstone in winter is a transcendent experience! The air is crisp with the scent of pine trees and the promise of adventure. The snow-covered landscapes provide the perfect backdrop to nature’s unfolding drama.



  • Enjoy the landscape from our custom-outfitted safari vans. These heated vehicles feature oversized windows and a rooftop hatch for premium viewing from every seat.
  • Prepare for incredible photography opportunities. Yellowstone is a prime location for spotting majestic wolves from a respectable distance.
  • Delight in a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge, a sanctuary to one of the largest elk herds in North America.
  • Keep binoculars close at hand as you explore this “Serengeti of North America,” home to the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 states. Resident bison, elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, moose and other wildlife live among seven large predator species.
  • Experience awe-inspiring geothermal features at Mammoth Hot Springs, including Old Faithful — a true icon of Yellowstone’s marvels! — as well as mud pots and fumaroles.
  • Gain a deep understanding of the wolves’ revival story as well as the vast flora and fauna that exist in this complex ecosystem from knowledgeable naturalists who will accompany you throughout this journey.
