My husband and I spent the most amazing 4 days of our lives with Emil in the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park during our honeymoon trip in July 2016. We are both active nature lovers from Australia and have traveled the world a lot, but backpacking and tenting in bear country was a first for us. We felt completely safe, and guided by a genuine wildlife warrior. It wasn't just about ticking the boxes and spotting animals (although we were so impressed with seeing moose, deer, grizzly bears, owls and so much more!); we felt like Emil showed us the heart of Yellowstone and how much it has to offer. As you can imagine, prior to the trip we were slightly hesitant about spending our honeymoon with a stranger in the wild.... however it turned out to be the best decision we ever made. Emil is not only brilliant at what he does, we felt like we were on an adventure with a friend we've known for many years. He is safe, respectful, lots of fun and has so much wildlife knowledge to offer. I recommend that everyone sees Yellowstone this way; get out of the crowds, sleep under the stars, walk where the animals walk, and have Emil as your guide through this adventure. You won't regret it. We are desperately trying to get back to catch up and see Yellowstone when there is snow!
