The Lamar Valley is located in the remote northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park, and is one of the best places to view wolves, as several packs live here. These isolated rolling grasslands become a blanket of long grass meadows during the summer months, but are virtually inaccessible during winter.
Viiksimo is located between two nature reserves – Elimyssalo and Iso-Palonen – in an area that is a tapestry of small lakes, numerous ponds, pine heaths and eskers. Right in the midst of the Finnish wilderness, it is a great place to watch and photograph bears, wolverines and wolves.
The Bale Mountains form a high altitude plateau, broken by spectacular volcanic peaks, beautiful alpine lakes and mountain streams descending through deep rocky gorges into the lowlands. The area is home to an incredibly high number of endemics, including the world’s rarest canid, the Ethiopian wolf.
Yellowstone National Park is dominated by its forest covered mountains and, because of its location on the North American plate, also experiences volcanic activity in the form of geysers, of which Old Faithful is the most famous.

This pristine wilderness region benefits from an untouched and rich ecosystem which in turn affords rare wildlife-viewing opportunities.
The Yukon borders Alaska on its western edge and British Columbia to the south, and is one of three Canadian territories (rather than provinces).

Situated on the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, the grasslands and rocky outcrops of Ruoergai are one of the few places to see China’s iconic cats – Pallas’s cat and Chinese mountain cat. Tibetan fox and wolf are also spotted here, making it an excellent location to see the region’s predators.
