TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.— Snow-capped peaks, impressive wildlife and a week in the nation’s first National Park. This is the winter vacation you’ve been waiting for. Want Expeditions, expert tour operator and world leader in highly personalized, conservation-oriented small group travel, delivers a unique look into the diverse ecosystem that is Yellowstone National Park. The trip begins in Jackson Hole as travelers are whisked away on a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride into the National Elk Refuge where they will witness eagles soaring, coyotes running and bison grazing. A jeep safari ride brings explorers into Grand Teton National Park to view big game including elk, moose and bighorn sheep. The group soon enters Yellowstone National Park via snow coach, with off-roading abilities allowing for extraordinary viewpoints for photography and breathtaking moments.
No trip to Yellowstone would be complete without the viewing of Old Faithful and other geysers that never freeze, along with a visit to Mammoth Hot Springs. Perhaps the height of the trip, though, occurs while on safari in Lamar Valley. Here, onlookers are said to have the greatest chance of observing wolves in their natural environment. The remaining days of the trip will begin before dawn to ensure the best chances of spotting the infamous Yellowstone wolves. Achieving the delicate combination of winter’s tranquility and the thrill of searching for wildlife, this itinerary delivers a not-to-be-missed experience for the entire family this winter!
