      About this trip

      Follow the call of the wild and have a “howling” good time with our pack as we explore a winter wonderland in search of Grey Wolves and other iconic wildlife of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.


      Our Yellowstone winter wolves women's adventure will prowl the Northern Yellowstone Range in search of Grey Wolves. Participants will see and learn about wolves in the wild, and gain a better understanding of the complexity of wolf conservation in the United States.


      Join us on our Yellowstone winter wolves women’s adventure for an unforgettable multi-day winter wolves and wildlife safari. We’ll spend 3 full days exploring the Yellowstone Ecosystem, focusing on the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park, some of the best wolf habitat in the lower 48 States! 


      Why Wolves of Yellowstone?

      Who hasn’t tried to imitate a lone wolf howling at the moon? Humans have been both fascinated and fearful of wolves for centuries. In the 1920s the last wolf pack of Yellowstone was eradicated by the US Government because the philosophy at the time was that less wolves meant more deer and elk. As time played out, the opposite became true and without wolves, the ecosystem was off balance. In the 1990s wolves from Canada were introduced by wildlife biologists into Yellowstone, and since then, Yellowstone has become a setting to study the importance of Grey Wolves as a keystone species which many other species relies on for survival.


      On this adventure we hope to ignite your fascination with wolves. Participants will observe wolves in their natural habitat and learn about their physical and behavioral adaptations that make them an apex predator in the ecosystem, including their complex social structures and cooperative hunting skills. Participants will meet experts in the field who are studying the wolves of Yellowstone. We want participants to learn first-hand about the issues affecting the conservation of wild wolves and why we need to protect them.


      More than wolves! Our winter wolves women's adventures are small groups, each departure is limited to just 11 participants with 2 guides. We will explore together like an extended family in the warm company of like-minded women and led by expert local guides. With Yellowstone as their backyard, you can be assured that our naturalist will introduce you to all of the wildlife in the park and surrounding areas. You can expect to see bison, moose, elk, pronghorn deer, bighorn sheep, swans, eagles, coyotes, foxes, and ermine.


      Our Yellowstone Winter Wolves women's adventure is for anyone who would like to learn about wolves and the ecology of Yellowstone National Park. The trip is open to women ages 18 and older.

      I am 85 years old and checked with my doctor before planning this trip. He told me it would be the trip of a lifetime and that I should go. He was right, it was the trip of a lifetime. Traveled with a great group, met three African tribes, and saw a great many animals. The accommodations were great, and the food was good. So happy that I had this opportunity.

      This was an amazing, bucket-list, trip-of-a-lifetime type of trip! The local guide is the absolute best and makes sure you experience the best that Uganda has to offer. The wildlife viewing and the cultural experiences are second to none. You will be planning your return trip before you even finish this one! As always, the trip leader and the rest of the GreenEdventures crew also do a great job and make sure every detail has been planned and taken care of. I can’t recommend this trip or GE enough.

      The Green Edventures Roatan trip was absolutely 100% one of my favorite trips I have ever experienced. The accommodations were perfect. Every bungalow had its own deck jutting out into the crystal clear sea. The wildlife interactions on this trip were absolutely phenomenal sea turtles, sloths, dolphins. Did I mention the SLOTHS?! Snorkeling the Mesoamerican Barrier reef was an experience I will never forget. The Anthony’s Key staff and our phenomenal trip leader Kelly bent over backwards for us daily, which is no easy task! You could really tell everyone involved loves their job and was truly happy to help. I appreciated the educational aspect, learning about the reef and fish and our impact as humans on both. The capstone activity was zip lining which was an absolute blast and the views were breathtaking. I wish I could go on this trip over and over again!

      The trip to Roatan was wonderful. Our trip leader ,Kelly, was very accommodating, , kind and so helpful. The accommodations and employees at Anthony's Key Resort were amazing. The snorkeling was great ! I was not in love with snorkeling before, but this trip changed my mind... warm water, beautiful fish and reefs. Our snorkel guide,Jennifer, shared her knowledge on fish, reefs, and snorkeling. I would highly recommend this trip !!

      Overall I think it was a good trip. The accommodations, food, and weather were perfect. The local people were very friendly and helpful. The snorkeling activities were enjoyable, but you could see the reefs were suffering from some degradation. The tour of the island was interesting but very long - 5 1/2 hours in the van was too much. Swimming with the dolphins was the highlight of the trip for me. Bugs (noseeums) were bothersome. Our trip leader did a good job of managing 16 people. She was kind but sometimes overwhelmed which made her unable to accept suggstions about little changes that people thought would make things better.

      I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

      I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
