    What to Expect
    This Grand Teton wildlife tour begins at your Jackson Hole hotel, where your local guide will transport you to Grand Teton National Park.

    Upon entering the snowy and scenic park, join your guide in scanning the landscape for movement and signs of wildlife, and since your knowledgeable guide knows right where to look, there’s a good chance of spotting a wealth of wildlife from bison to eagles to elk. Bighorn sheep are also common in Grand Teton National Park, as are moose, mule deer, coyotes, pronghorn antelope, and wolves.

    After 43 miles of touring the park, you’ll warm up with lunch near Jackson Hole at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Peruse the museum’s 14 galleries of nature-inspired art, and children can even create their own art at the Children’s Discovery Center.

    After exploring the exceptional wildlife museum, you’ll return outdoors for a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the heart of the National Elk Refuge. Your guide will discuss how the herds of elk migrate all the way here from Yellowstone. This refuge stretches across 24,700 acres (9,996 hectares). In addition to being the elk’s winter home, it also plays host to 47 mammal species and 175 species of birds.

    Finally, after a day of searching for wildlife and celebrating the beauty of nature, your Grand Teton day trip concludes with a warm, comfortable ride to back to your Jackson Hole hotel.

    We were so fortunate to have Makena as our guide. She was prompt picking us up. She suggested we see mountains and scenery first so we could catch the early morning light, then go looking for wildlife later— and that was perfect! She shared so many facts about the area, naming
