About
Immerse yourself in the wildness of Yellowstone’s landscape by utilizing the ancient technology of snowshoes. This tour provides an unmatchable backcountry experience of magnificent winter ecology. Though winter can seem like the least likely time to go for a walk in the woods, it is really one of the most rewarding. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem comes alive as wildlife moves from summer to winter ranges. Snow illuminates the landscape in a way you may never have noticed. Wildlife tracks appear frozen in time, and plants and rivers allow for our reflection on resilience and longevity. On this private full-day snowshoe trek, you will explore the environment in an in-depth, hands-on way. Your expert naturalist guide will interpret what you find and what you see, and you may be surprised with the story that arises.

        Fantastic way to see Yellowstone and wildlife!!
        What a fantastic guided adventure through Yellowstone National Park. From ease in booking the trip to punctual pick up and our amazing and enthusiastic guide, Randolph, this has been a trip highlight! Randolph worked hard to search out the wildlife and we were able to see so much including 2 wolves! He has a keen eye! He is also extremely knowledgeable on the history of the park and the ecosystem. Lunch and snacks were superb! I highly recommend booking with this tour company!

        A great guide and a beautiful snowshoe adventure
        We recently took a 1/2 day snowshoe into Yellowstone Park from Big Sky MT. I would like to commend our tour guide, Grant. He was extremely knowledgeable, considerate and made our afternoon one that we will not forget. His enthusiasm and appreciation of our surroundings was infectious. The Yellowstone Safari Company is fortunate to have Grant as one of their guides.

        Great GREAT adventure (and company)!
        Wait...are there six stars? We (two couples) booked the 2 Day Winter Wolves & Wildlife Safari. WHAT AN AMAZING two days. Our guide was Gabrielle Murray. She was fantastic. Super knowledgeable and incredibly engaging. We witnessed wolves (fleetingly), bison, moose -- and (yes) mating coyotes feasting on a carcass. A slight hitch in pickup was quickly remedied -- and profusely apologized for. Meals were terrific. The accommodation was simple, but lovely. Communication with the company was clear and always immediate. Cannot recommend this company enough...and do ask for Gabrielle if you can. Thank you so much Yellowstone Safari Co.

        Highlight of my trip!
        I can not put into words how truly amazing this experience was! I highly recommend booking the wildlife safari trip if you are visiting the area! It was honestly the highlight of my entire trip & the entire team was absolutely fabulous. From help with booking me on a public tour day, to the actual tour itself and every step in between they were all amazing. Excellent customer service. I will absolutely be booking another trip for the summer time. Don’t hesitate. Just book it. It’s so worth the money and you won’t regret the experience. 13/10 recommends!

        Majestic, a true winter wonderland!
        Randolph is amazing! He led 4 of us on a full day winter wildlife tour of Yellowstone, and we had the absolute best time. Our entire group (some of us met as strangers that day!) had a blast together. He’s impressively knowledgeable about so many aspects of the wildlife species in the park—population sizes, their habits, where they live in the park, and a pulse on the research being done currently to monitor the wolf and bear populations. His innate passion for nature and animals came through and inspired us to ask so many more questions. We learned so much! He possesses this next level ability to spot wildlife with the naked eye (often while driving!) and would pull over safely and expertly bust out a scope to hone in on the animal of interest to make it visible for the rest of us. He did this for a mountain goat that blended in with the pure white snow on a far off mountain cliff and for a dipper bird that was fishing, such a unique species that was fascinating to watch. He’s friendly and welcoming and is an excellent communicator, giving us a head’s up from the beginning on where the rest stop and coffee opportunities would be along the way. And he asked from the start what we were hoping to see to tailor the experience to the interests of our group, which was really cool. Beyond being knowledgeable and kind, he’s also a genuinely interesting person and he shared lots of memorable stories—from inside and outside the park. We laughed so many times, and shared some heartfelt moments too. Can’t compliment him enough for guiding us through the park and creating such a positive vibe as the backdrop for what became many fun memories. I’ll admit, there was a moment a few weeks before my trip to Montana that I suggested to my friend we just rent a car and figure out the park ourselves. I live for national parks and know how to improvise & maximize a day long trip—and I am so glad she convinced me to take this tour! There’s *no way* we would have jampacked that many epic wildlife sightings into one day—and we would have only learned *a fraction* of what we did if we hadn’t opted into this truly memorable experience.

        We had the best time on this tour! Gary was an awesome tour guide, it ended up just being my wife and I and he treated us so well! He kept us warm, fed and hydrated and we learned so much about the park and the wildlife. Spectacular views of the park and we saw a lot of animals! Would highly recommend making this tour a part of your Montana trip!

        Family friendly and educational tour
        Fabulous tour! We saw the sanctuary and learned so much about the animals of Yellowstone and our 12 year old loved it. Then a wonderful lunch and a wilderness hike where we learned about reading scat and tracks and saw some Elk. Great trip we will come back again to see more so much to see in Yellowstone! (A lot of the park was closed during our visit so check ahead to make sure what you want to see is open)

        Totally worth it!
        So glad we did the guided tour. We did two yours with Yellowstone Safari Co. The first was the highlights of the park and that was worth it just in the time they saved us by knowing where to go when. The second was the wildlife tour and I never expected to see all that we did - wolf, badger, foxes, bears, mountain goats, coyote, elk, and of course bison. We would never have been able to find them all on our own. The guides were both great, highly recommend.

        Went today with Gary. Tour was excellent, Gary was excellent. Only thing that could be improved is a couple of options for lunch. Thanks Gary for an informative, great day.

        5 day safari tour if Yellowstone/Grand Tetons with Yellowstone Safari Co.
        Just completed a 5 day tour of Yellowstone Park and the Grand Tetons via the Yellowstone Safari Co. with Nate Udd as our guide. One word...FABULOUS!! Nate was the consummate guide. His knowledge of the parks, wildlife trends, tendencies and habits, contacts with other guides for the latest sighting info and knowledge of "lesser known" but excellent viewing locations was invaluable. And with an artists eye he suggested locations and times to do great viewing and photographing points for wildlife, landscapes, sunrise and sunset views. Had to be a little flexible as we were getting into shoulder season bur Nate always had options to make the most of our time on our tour. We were there to experience the natural wonders of the parks and Nate made sure we got the most of our tour. In our opinion you just can't do these parks justice in a day or two. If you have the ability to book a 4 or 5 day tour of these parks do it. And do it with Yellowstone Safari Co.

        Amazing
        Zach was our guide and did a phenomenal job of showing us everything we could see in the 8+ hours we were with him. The tour did so much more than what we could have ever seen on our own. We went with a private safari just my husband and I. We didn’t want to be held up with a group of strangers. It was worth the price of admission. We got some amazing pictures and learned a lot from the fun stories Zach told us. We had some great snacks hot tea and coffee. The box lunch as surprisingly very good. You don’t expect much from a boxed lunch on a tour. We had sandwiches chips and a delicious brownie. Kudos to the caterer. All in all I highly recommend using them and Zach.

        Our tour guide Kelsey made our day and experience one to remember. She was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions and listened to what our top priorities were for the day/what we wanted to see and made it happen! I would highly recommend this company, especially Kelsey for your trip to Yellowstone!

        Bucket list trip
        There are no words to describe the wonderful experience we had while visiting Yellowstone. Kelsey, our tour guide, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, knew all the spots to visit, friendly and down right awesome! A tour is definitely the way to go. We would not have been able to see everything we did and learn everything we did without this tour. We are forever grateful for Kelsey and a beautiful day!

      Our safari to Yellowstone Park was spectacular. The park is BEAUTIFUL in the winter, the accommodations and food were outstanding. Our guides, Ash and Scott went out of their way to show us all that they could, their passion for what they do is evident. The wildlife we discovered was way more than we expected, and the guides had firsthand knowledge, educating us all along the way. Highly recommended, a must-do if you are in the area! Pro tip: If you book during the winter, especially on a weekday, you pretty much have the park to yourself.

      We spent the day with Yellowstone Safari Co. taking a private Full-day Snowshoe Safari Adventure. Zak, our guide, spent lots of time making sure my 10 year old grandson was safe and comfortable in the snow. He met all of our needs in pointing out all sorts of wildlife. Lunch was great. Snowshoeing was lots of fun, and so beautiful to be in Yellowstone in the midst of winter. We hope to visit again very soon! Yellowstone Safari Co. is professional, experienced and simply a great team!!

      An great experience!! Gary our guide picked us up early and brought us to the park. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and made points about the wildlife and stopping the vehicle to let us get better looks. He also provided binoculars and had an additional scope to see items even more closely. We enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch by the river. During the trip we saw bison, antelope, elk, bald eagles and a mountain goat. just to name a few! A highly recommended tour when visiting!!

      Our guide was Gabrielle and she was the best! Picked us up at our hotel since we ended up being the only guests that day (we didn’t originally book a private tour) and she was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the park and wildlife that we saw, and saw tons of bison, pronghorn antelope, a fox, a big horned sheep, some wolves, a coyote, a hawk and a bald Eagle, a mother bear still in her hibernation den, etc. during snowshoeing she pointed out the different animal tracks and took us to an overlook of a beautiful river canyon. Snacks and lunch were great and she was willing to stop for tea at a little gem in Gardiner by the entrance of the park. Gabrielle even gave us recommendations for our next day in Big Sky and our dinner that evening in Bozeman. Highly recommend. We will request Gabrielle on our next trip to Bozeman!

      Yes, you could drive through the park on your own, but the knowledge of what trails to snowshoe when everything is covered, the binoculars and scope, and the general spotting ability of our guide made the day feel truly worthwhile. She even airdropped us the pictures from the scope at the end of the day.

      We had a three day winter Safari tour led by Grant. We are grateful to all Grant offered to use during the trip. I think the best part was we could really tell that he loves going to see animals, want the guest to have great time - that really made this trip special. Seeing animals is wonderful, but to experience how he finds animals were more educational for us. We could hear wolf pack howling, coyote howling, had some close encounter with a Buffalo and big horn sheep, and met other majestic animals in the park. He made sure we were comfortable and safe throughout the trip. We had truly a wonderful time. Thank you so much!

      Loved our experience with Yellowstone Safari Company. Our guide, Randolph, was extremely knowledgeable, very accommodating (and punctual) and great with the kids. We toured the park (van and snow coach tour) and snowshoed. Randolph was able to track down a couple of the wolves, which was an amazing experience. Would highly suggest this company and Randolph in particular.

      I have been to Yellowstone many times, but Yellowstone Safari was the best trip yet. Since I am a local I never thought to go on a guided tour but it is such an amazing experience. Ash and Scott were our guides and they had so much knowledge about the park, the animals, and where all the activity was. We got to see a bear den, wolves, and much more. It was such a treat to see Yellowstone with the experts. I would definitely recommend Yellowstone Safari to locals and tourists alike!!

      We had a great day seeing wildlife and doing some hiking and snowshoeing. We had a “triple dog day” seeing wolf, coyotes and fox. We also saw all seven big hoofed animals - bison, pronghorn, moose, bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer, white tail deer. Would highly recommend.

      Two excellent days with private guides Gabrielle and Hannah, both great. Family of 11 and they knew how to manage the spectrum of ages and interests. Engaging conversations, passionate and knowledgeable about the area, history and wildlife. A super pleasant experience, they knew when we should be at various sites including popular stops like Old Faithful in order to avoid crowds and/or get the best viewing. It is a pricey tour but would highly recommend.
