Fall Wolf and Elk Discovery Package

Health & Safety

All passengers are required to wear CDC-compliant masks.

Observe Elk and Wolves in the Wild

Team up with a Yellowstone Forever Field Educator to discover wolves and elk, Yellowstone’s marquee predator and prey species. The elk mating season, or rut, spans late summer and fall where we’ll take plenty of time to enjoy and discuss the dramatic displays of mating bulls. Wolves are more elusive in fall but sunrise wildlife watching trips will still give us a good chance of observing wolves in the wild. Other activities include short hikes in wolf and elk habitat that includes discussions on the behavior, ecology, and management of both species.  View the itinerary.

Activity Level – Hikes up to 3 miles per day with elevation gains up to 600 feet. Some off-trail hiking possible.
