I’ve wanted to visit Yellowstone for many years, and as a birthday treat we booked onto the Spring Wolf and Bear package from Yellowstone Forever… right from the off we were treated to in-depth, up to date and, most importantly, interesting knowledge on the park, its ecosystem and history. And straight away we were watching wolves, bears, bison, elk, eagles, ospreys and many of the other exciting Yellowstone wildlife…

As an ecologist, this was all my Christmases come at once (but this trip was accessible to all, regardless of profession). I couldn’t have asked for a better time. – Tommy M.
