Rocky Mountain National Park Wildlife Tours
Wildlife Tours are high on the list for many guests visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. If you like Discovery, Netflix, or BBC nature specials you will absolutely love to learn on a Wildlife Tour.
On a Wildlife Tour we will try to find the various large and small Rocky Mountain National Park animals and birds including Elk, Moose, Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer, Marmots, Pikas, Chipmunks, Ground Squirrels, and if we are lucky Coyotes and birds of prey. On evening tours another option you can chose is to forgo the Moose and target a small Beaver pond, and Muskrats instead. Rocky is not a great place to find Black Bears, with only 3-5 sightings a year on our tours. Elk and Pika are the stars of Rocky, with Bighorn Sheep and Moose being great targets as well.
Binoculars and spotting scopes are provided for every guest and with them we can often find wildlife that most other folks never see. Guests can use our top of the line Swarovski and Leica Binoculars for great views, and Kowa Spotting Scopes for very distant animals. Our record for one day is finding 14 species on an 8 hour tour. We only see Black Bears 3 or 4 times a year, and have only seen a Mountain Lion three times (ask to see the video on my phone), both of these species are found in the park in very small numbers. Along the way we'll talk about why they are so rare and why wolves and grizzly are no longer found in the park.
