About this trip

Our Yellowstone winter wolves women's adventure will prowl the Northern Yellowstone Range in search of Grey Wolves. Participants will see, photograph, 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 4 full days exploring the Greater 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 9 participants. 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. Winter in Yellowstone is often a challenging and cold environment.  Daytime Temperatures are often below 30 degrees F and can reach below zero in this high elevation (more than 5000’) environment.  Tours typically encounter snowy, icy, wet, and cold conditions.  Please view the packing list below and come prepared to spend time outside in the cold experiencing the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem!

A wonderful trip for anyone who loves the ocean! So much wildlife and a much larger appreciation for the island of Roatan. Never a boring day, great food, even better people. Scuba not required but heavily recommended.
By Logan D for Roatan 2022: Mr. Collins' Marine Biology Trip on 15 Aug, 2022
This trip was refreshing and it certainly kept my attention! Iceland gave us dramatic beauty, a large variety of experiences, and for me, exposure to a different way of governing and living. Tara was, of course, enthusiastic, aware and in charge every step of the way and she solved small problems efficiently. Thora (driver and guide) was an excellent companion for us all and very knowledgeable. The other guides (kayaking, horseback riding, iceberg exploring, and so on) were also skilled and always friendly. I was a single traveler and enjoyed meeting the groups of women from elsewhere. Good job, Tara!

A trip of a lifetime! By signing up with Green Edventures, I had incredible experiences I never would have known to choose for myself...glacier treks, sea kayaking near seals, soaking a in a hot river, and riding horses on the beach! Tara created an amazing trip, choosing the best of the best activities engaging all ages and skill levels. She was very aware of every individual's needs and limitations, kept us well informed, made sure we learned about the land and culture, and had a ton of fun. I will definitely choose Green Edventures for another trip in the future.

If you could rate Roatan a six star, I would! This is an incredible and unforgettable experience. Green EDVENTURES and Aimee Lowe know how to run a trip. Anthony's Key Resort has been remodeled making the grounds breathtaking and very safe. The bungalows over the water are cute! The food was on point with fresh fish options every night (plus delicious American food choices). They accommodate any allergy. We dove 11 times and saw the most amazing marine life. The dive masters are always looking out for you. If you are on the edge of taking a trip, let this be the final review you read.....SIGN UP NOW! You will not regret seeing the marine life, learning at the RIMS (Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences), relaxing in the pool between the coolest dives, and being around like minded people! There wasn't a thing I would change about this trip. PERFECT!

THe only thing stopping me from putting 5 stars is that the mountain huts were not great - I prefer to sleep more privately and I think my fellow travelers would prefer not to hear me snore. However, the vistas, the landscapes, the waterfalls, the sky, the earth--WOW. I am so glad I went on this trip! I was so impressed by the organizer, Tara, and the trail guide, Thora. If you are in shape to hike 55 rugged kilometers and love the outdoors in all weather, I highly recommend this trip. Bring good rain gear and lots of layers, and your camera!

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?
