Grand Teton Wildlife Tour Overview
Complete your Jackson Hole itinerary with one of the best tours in the region. Our guests begin their day with a light breakfast to get energized for the exciting day ahead. The trip starts by traveling north from Jackson along the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park. The National Elk Refuge is home to thousands of mule deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep and bison. The elk migrate into the valley in search of food each year alongside the coyotes, fox, bald and golden eagles, and even packs of wolves. With the annual migration of wildlife, visitors are able to observe a wide diversity of animals. Our guests will enjoy a delicious lunch together at a local eatery before heading to the National Museum of Wildlife Art. The museum displays inspirational pieces of work from the best collections of wildlife art in the world. After you explore the museum, you’ll take a horse drawn sleigh through the National Elk Refuge into the middle of the largest herd of wild elk in North America.
