If you’re just passing through Wyoming, a quick detour around Yellowstone’s popular spots should be enough for you to say, “been there, done that”. However, for real wildlife enthusiasts, it may be worth it to go deeper into Wyoming’s wild side. After all, rare, once-in-a-lifetime moments don’t just find you – you have to find them.

Pro-wildlife photographer Jeffrey J. Soulliere is on a mission to help you with just that. He has designed a luxury Yellowstone tour for those seeking an exclusive experience after the park closes for the season.

Meet Jeffrey J. Soulliere, your Lead Guide

It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter your background. Anyone can be a wildlife enthusiast. Take Jeff — the lead guide for the private snow coach tour.

As a pro-wildlife photographer, Jeff’s story is as captivating as the photos he takes. He once worked alongside astronauts at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. But after the space shuttle program retired, Jeff exchanged the stars for snow-capped forests, turning his passion for wildlife photography into a full-time gig.

Jeff’s years of research into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) have helped him curate a specialized knowledge of the animals, their behaviors, and seasonal patterns. Whether it’s the majestic black bears, grizzly bears, or elusive wolves, Jeff knows where to find them.

Through the Wild Terrains

With our Wildlife Snow coach Tour, you can expect many stops along your 3-day, 2-night tour of the park. Here’s a taste of the wildlife you can expect to see, and where you’ll find them along your tour.


Day 1: Journey into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE).

Our adventure begins at the National Elk Refuge, cradled by the Teton Range, a winter sanctuary for elk. We then traverse Jackson Hole’s Gros Ventre region, where we’ll be surrounded by aspen groves and the black tailed deer that call them home.

The journey continues to Grand Teton National Park, with stops at Elk Ranch Flats and Oxbow Bend, known for its mirrored reflections of Mount Moran.

Next, we explore Colter Bay and Jackson Lake before heading through JDRM Parkway to Flagg Ranch. From here, a snow coach or snowcat excursion leads us through picturesque forests and mountain views, with potential wildlife encounters including elk, moose, wolves, and coyotes.

Entering Yellowstone via its southern gate, we navigate Lewis Canyon towards West Thumb Geyser Basin. This area features an array of hot springs and geysers along the shore of Yellowstone Lake.

Crossing Craig Pass, we reach Firehole Canyon, showcasing a 65,000-year-old lava flow and offering chances to see bison and possibly bears.

Our day ends in West Yellowstone, MT, a charming mountain town where elk, bison, and coyotes are frequent visitors.


Day 2: Grand Canyon and Hayden Valley Exploration.

On our second day, we set out to explore the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the scenic Hayden Valley. Our route begins at Madison Junction, winding through the Gibbon area to Elk Park and Norris. We’ll pause at landmarks like Beryl Springs and the Chocolate Paint Pot before reaching the Norris Geyser Basin, a hotspot for geothermal activity.

Our journey leads us to Canyon Village through Hayden Valley, where we take the dive right into the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, following the Yellowstone River towards the Mud Volcanoes. This part of the tour offers a vast expanse with likely views of wildlife such as bison, elk, grizzly bears, and wolf packs.


Day 3: Madison to Old Faithful Adventure.

Our last day begins at Christmas Tree Park, as we progress through Madison Canyon to Seven Mile Bridge. This area is renowned for its picturesque river scenes, meadows, and wildlife.

Entering the Yellowstone Caldera at Madison Junction, we head south to Fountain Flats, visiting the Lower Geyser Basin, Fountain Paint Pots, Bobby-Socks Forest, and Tangle Creek. This region boasts an array of geothermal features and is a frequent favorite for bison and elk.

Our journey ends in the Upper Geyser Basin with a visit to the famous Old Faithful geyser. Here, bison and elk are often seen, providing a fitting end to our dive into the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
