Return Details

Returns to original departure point
From Teton Village near Jackson Hole, hop in a customized open-air vehicle (weather dependent), for a journey out on the rugged terrain of Grand Teton National Park. From the comfortable seat of your open-air vehicle, gaze up at the craggy summit of Grand Teton—the tallest mountain in the park—all the while feeling the wind in your hair as you journey out towards the woods. In the fall and winter, when the temperature drops, tours take place in a safari-style vehicle that’s enclosed for comfort and warmth, and these small group tours have only nine passengers in summer, and 10 passengers in winter.

During this Grand Teton wildlife tour, scour a part of the 310,000 acres that comprise the national park. Scan the landscape for the 60 species of mammals that live in the park, and keep an eye out overhead for over 300 species of birds. With binoculars provided by your local guide, try to spot elk, bears, bison, mule deer, moose, or wolves, and keep a lookout for ospreys, owls, hawks, and soaring bald eagles. You might even have a chance at seeing black and grizzly bears. 

Aside from the wealth of wildlife, you also experience the Snake River scenery as backed by the jagged mountains, and your guide will explain the geology and ecology before returning to Teton Village.

Note: Summer tours run from June 15 to August 31, and fall/winter tours are September 1 to June 14. Hotel pickup in the Jackson Hole area is available upon request.

Saw Moose and mama moose with a baby and herds of Buffalo. Very happy with Jeff as our guide. He was so knowledgeable and told us so much information about the history of the Tetons, wildlife, plants & mountains.
Totally worth the trip!
, Jul 2021
This trip was amazing! Our tour guide taught us all about the formation of the grand Tetons and pointed out all the interesting landscapes and mountain ranges surrounding. He was also awesome at finding the animals and then moving our vehicle so that we were able to see them and take pictures of them - all while being safe. We traveled with a group of 10 people ages 11 to 50. Everyone enjoyed the trip!
Just do it!

Such an adventure! Saw mule deer, antelope, elk, moose, a golden eagle, and great scenery. Our guide, Neil, was terrific and knew just where to find the elusive wildlife. I strongly suggest you take this tour on the first day of your trip so you will know where to look for wildlife later on based on the guide’s recommendations.
