YELLOWSTONE WINTER WILDLIFE SAFARI

Coyote

Coyotes can be seen quite often in winter throughout our trip.

  Yellowstone is rich in wildlife and in winter much of it is even more visible! Fewer people and limited access allow us to explore the park more freely, using snow coaches and SUVs. Coyotes, bison, bobcats, elk, bighorn sheep, fox and hopefully wolves and mountain lion will be seen. We will also enjoy a couple great locations for winter birds. From West Yellowstone we will explore the Madison River by snow coach, in search of bobcats, wolves and waterfowl. This is typically one of the best locations for bobcats in the park. From Gardiner we will explore the famed Lamar Valley, known for its wolf packs, bison, owls and bighorns!

This portion of the tour gives us our best opportunity for bison covered in hoarfrost and some truly unique wildlife opportunities such as bobcats and red fox.

Every species of mammal in Yellowstone National Park, except for the bears, will be concentrated throughout this stretch of the park come this time of year.
