Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a time before television, smart phones, traffic, deadlines and all the other pressures of modern life—to slow down and experience a deeper connection to the world around you?
Here’s your chance. The White Mountain Apache Tribe is now offering a unique culture, wildlife and wilderness tour that will take you on a 6-day/5-night journey into the heart of the Southwest and on a mission to see the rarest wolf in North America—el lobo, or the Mexican gray wolf—in the wild.
A chance to see the endangered Mexican gray wolf in the wild is a highlight of the trip.
Join Apache guides on expeditions into the Tribe’s remote, lush forests for a chance to hear or see endangered lobos and learn about efforts to restore other imperiled wildlife such as Mexican spotted owls and Apache trout.
o Experience firsthand the Apache way of life through crafts, storytelling and traditional meals (vegetarian options available)
o Sleep safely and comfortably in furnished cabins
o Gain insight into centuries-old traditional ceremonies
o Connect with wildlife through Apache culture and help save something wild
