Wake Up to Wildlife

Per NPS guidance, all tour passengers aare strongly encouraged to wear a CDC-compliant face covering. The health and safety of our guests and employees remain top priorities.


Morning Tour

Dawn is really the best time to search out the wild things, so we’ll leave Canyon Lodge bright and early and head for Hayden Valley. Here expan­sive views pro­vide great opportunities to find spectacular megafauna grazing or hunting on the open hillsides, and your driver/guide will know where the action has been as of late (as we’re look­ing for genu­inely wild animals, there are no guarantees of course!). Our Historic Yellow Bus will be provisioned with muffins and juice for all aboard, and we’ll be gone about five hours. If you really want to take your best chance to glimpse the great beasts, come Wake Up to Wildlife with us!
