What You Can Expect

Make your way to a central location in Jackson, where this wildlife tour begins. Travel into Grand Teton National Park to take advantage of the day’s best wildlife viewing hours, using binoculars and spotting scopes to watch for the area’s diverse wildlife. Try to spot moose traveling with young calves, or snap an image of a bighorn sheep with the backdrop of snowy cliffs and craggy buttes.

After a morning of watching game, continue to the National Museum of Wildlife Art, a vast collection of pieces in a red sandstone castle. Browse works from the 19th and 20th centuries by artists that include N.C. Wyeth, John James Audubon, Pablo Picasso, and Georgia O’Keefe. Break for lunch at the museum’s Rising Sage Café, whose windows overlook the National Elk Refuge and Sleeping Elk Mountain.

Finish the day with a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge, which allows you to approach a vast herd of elk while moving quietly across the snow. Sleigh rides offer an up-close view of the thousands of elk that shelter inside the preserve each winter. Throughout the day, guides will share insights and background on winter ecology, animal behavior and adaptations, snow science, and the cultural history of the area. This tour concludes with return transfer to Jackson.
