Itinerary

Day 1: Each guest will be picked up early in the morning from their hotel in Jackson Hole. We will begin our expedition by traveling to Grand Teton National Park and exploring the varied wildlife habitats and beautiful mountain scenery. In the shadow of the towering Tetons, we will have an excellent opportunity to see moose, elk, pronghorn antelope, mule deer and bison. Lunch will be at Signal Mountain Lodge, located on scenic Jackson Lake. We will then head up to Buffalo Valley and check into our hotel. This area is frequented by predators such as wolves, coyotes and black bears.Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 2: Moose will be our objective of the morning as we search the willowed bottomlands of Oxbow Bend before heading up to Yellowstone National Park. This stop provides spectacular reflections of Mount Moran and an excellent opportunity to view trumpeter swans, osprey, bald eagles and white pelicans. Our next stop includes the wonderful mysteries of the world’s first national park. We will walk among Yellowstone’s fumaroles, hot springs and geysers at Old Faithful. A tour of Old Faithful geyser will be conducted just before our lunch at Old Faithful. The afternoon will be spent touring various geyser basins or possibly hiking to Fairy Falls. The evening will consist of dinner in the Old Faithful Dining Lodge and accommodations at Old Faithful. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 3: We will travel north to Mammoth Hot Springs to view the springs and learn about the creation and early years of Yellowstone National Park, then travel to Yellowstone’s famed Lamar Valley. This is where the Yellowstone wolf reintroduction began. Lamar Valley, often called America’s Serengeti, offers our best opportunity to see wolves, grizzly bears and large herds of elk and bison. We will check into the Alpine Hotel in Cooke City, Montana, then return to Lamar for a wonderful late afternoon in search of wolves. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 4: Today’s adventure takes us back through Lamar Valley for one last glimpse of predators and their prey.
