Summer Wildlife Tours

There is more to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) than Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Jackson Hole. And we want to take you to see it all. Have you heard of Shoshone National Forest or seen Beartooth Pass? We can take you to see the ins, outs, and backroads of these areas and much more of this entire beautiful ecosystem. 

With Life So Wild Tours, we are all about you! We take you on an all-exclusive, under-the-radar, luxurious tour to get the experience and photographic capture of that bear, moose, wolf, or any other species that you have been dreaming of.

Our summer tours begin mid-May when Yellowstone National Park roads are open and end October 31, the day before the roads (the Grand Loop) close again. A typical full-day tour can last from 5 am to 9:30 pm. 

If you’re in Jackson, Teton Village, or Jackson Hole area during Summer or Winter, we can do full and half-day local tours that allow you to explore the southern part of the GYE. For multiple day tours, we also offer pickups in other distant locations, including Billings, Bozeman, etc. Please call for all pickup possibilities. 

We will discuss your tour with you and find out exactly what you want to gain from this experience. Seriously, this is all about you, and we want to make sure you get what you came for.

We will do our best to get you to the animal that you want to see, but keep in mind the GYE is not a zoo and we cannot guarantee that a certain animal will appear on your tour. But we do have a reputation for dawning you with the bears.
