At Lamar Valley, mountain peaks gently rise from the distance and a small river flows at this picturesque spot inside Yellowstone National Park where wildlife abounds. Photographers bring their gear and wait for bears, wolves, elk, bison, and other wildlife to appear. You can fish along the river with a permit; anglers wrangle for cutthroat and rainbow trout here.

  • We did a private tour of the Lamar Valley and were thrilled we did. The valley is beautiful, and we found it to have the most wildlife that we saw while visiting Yellowstone

  • Loved our recent visit. We were able to have 3 different grizzly sightings ( with 4 bears- one sighting was a pair- not sure if momma and older cub or 2 subadults) and several wolf sightings...

  • Amazing view. Saw pack of wolves after baby bison but adult bison kept them away. My family thought the way to and Lamar Valley was the best part of Yellowstone
  • We were able to sit and watch for awhile. There were so many babies it was a lot of fun. We were told that during the evening wolves and bears can be seen.
