Closeout the old year and start with the new alongside existing and newfound friends. Ring in 2023 at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch, where wildlife can often be spotted right outside your cabin door. Daily outings along Yellowstone’s famed Northern Range and Lamar Valley, will be spent looking for wolves, bison, elk bighorn sheep, and more. Engage in discussions about Yellowstone’s diverse wildlife population and learn more about how these Lamar Valley inhabitants survive Yellowstone’s long harsh winters. Learn about wildlife adaptations needed to live in this cold climate, interactions of predators and scavengers, how to read tracks in the snow, and much more.
New this winter: All meals will be catered, from dinner on the first evening to breakfast on the last morning . There is also an option to add a round trip airport shuttle for an additional $125.00.
