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 11-day 'The
Wolves of Yellowstone National Park' tour heads for the world's first
national park in search of its Grey Wolves. If you want a short break focusing
almost exclusively on wolf-watching I'd recommend Wolf-Watching in
Spain, while we've also had good wolf sightings in recent years on our
holiday to Italy's Abruzzo National

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR wolves HOLIDAYS
I liked the fact that we were watching the animals but weren't close enough to disturb them. The guides Eva, Tino, Tonio and Javier were excellent. They were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. The itinerary was packed and we saw wolves, eagles, vultures, foxes and a wildcat to name just some of the wildlife we saw. I enjoyed watching the animals and I also enjoying looking for signs of animal activity in the forest - looking at animal tracks and poo; rare fungus and animals' homes. The food was great too and it was lovely to come back to a tasty meal after our day's nature spotting. We enjoyed every aspect of our 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.
Overall the whole experience was fantastic. This was my first trip alone and also with Naturetrek. I did not feel left out at any point and would certainly book another trip with Naturetrek.
