We offer a selection of professionally organised, small group wolf watching holidays, offering chances to witness these magnificent animals.

Wolf Watching Holidays

Wolves are shy and elusive, which is part of what makes the thrill of seeing a lone wild wolf crossing an open plain, or a pack of wolves feeding on a kill one of the natural world’s unbeatable experiences. The wolf’s howl is a sound that epitomises the wilderness. Whether across a snow-clad northern landscape or a stark Ethiopian plateau, we are pleased to offer you the chance to see, track or hear a wild wolf on our wolf holidays.


“Our 5-day ‘Sweden – Wolf-tracking in Winter’ tour is led by an exceptional guide; in addition, we stay in one of Sweden’s most acclaimed hotels and the scenery is out of this world. If you want a short break focusing almost exclusively on wolf watching I’d recommend ‘Wolves & Bustards in Rural Spain’, while we’ve also had good wolf sightings in recent years on our holiday to Italy’s Abruzzo National Park.”

Overall an excellent trip - more an adventure than a holiday.
The diverse and unexpected scenery, the wildlife, particularly the birds, and the elegant and resillient people were all exceptional. I would recommend the holiday to anyone who is happy to get off the beaten track and rough it a bit in exchange for experiencing something unique, although the time to go is now. Both Roy and Abbi were exceptionally good spotters and extremely knowledgeable about the birds and animals we were seeing. Full marks to them; the sheer numbers of birds and mammals we saw is a testament to their skill and effort. Roy also led the group well, responding well to events and keeping us informed about what was planned.
Wonderful and we felt it a real privilege to be seeing all the wildlife in such (relatively) untouched habitats. The crew were all very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and determined that we should get the chance to see as much as possible (or eat as much as possible!). We've never been on a tour where the local guides/operators have been so good. The wildlife was fantastic - humpbacks breaching, lunging, pectoral fin slapping, sideways spins; evening and morning sightings of family of grizzlies (mother and three cubs) plus mother and 2 year old grizzly playing together; black bears fishing; and a spirit bear waiting our arrival on Swindle Island whilst eating a salmon - he later ambled upriver, came back and was with us for about an hour! Sighting of a fin whale; sea otters and rounded off with orcas.
