Gray Wolves

Touring in Yellowstone National Park

The best and one of the few places to see gray wolves in their natural habit is in Yellowstone National Park during the winter months when the temperatures drop and snow begins to fall.

Wolves are difficult to locate with winter being the best time of the year when wolves are more likely to be spotted because of the thin foliage and the abundance of prey roaming out into open areas.

Gray Wolves in Yellowstone National Park

January through March is prime time for watching gray wolves in Yellowstone National Park.

Late April and May is another good time to see wildlife as both wolves and grizzlies --- who have come out of hibernation --- can be easily be seen in the valley.

In the winter, the only way to travel inside the park is either by snow coach, a tour vehicle equipped with either a rubber track or a ski system, or by tour sized snowmobile. During the winter months, access into Yellowstone National Park is from the the North Entrance at Gardiner.
