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 WOLF HOLIDAYS SPECIALIST RECOMMENDS …
“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.”

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR wolves HOLIDAYS
One of the most memorable of trips we have made with Naturetrek in terms of wildlife sightings and overall experience. The organisation, planning and conduct of the cruise on Island Roamer was second to none. We felt complete trust in the skipper and first mate crew - such pleasant and helpful people. The cook was outstanding too and worked miracles with delicious meals. The wildlife was spectacular - from regular humpback whale sightings, including one individual breaching repeatedly alongside the boat, the grizzly, black and spirit bears, fabulous birdlife and a pod of killer whales around us within the last 20 min of the voyage ! Lee and Lindsay also took trouble to introduce us to the invertebrate marine life and salmon and forest ecology of the area, adding an important dimension to the whole trip.
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.
The local guide, Yilma Abebe, was superb, being helpful, courteous and exceedingly knowledgeable not only on ornithology, mammals, habitat, agriculture etc., but also on Ethiopian history.
