Overview

On this small-group Grand Teton wildlife safari, join a local naturalist and guide for a ride in an open-air safari vehicle on dirt roads and on paved highways within Grand Teton National Park, where you scour the landscape at dawn or dusk for wolves, moose, and elk. Look for eagles soaring overhead or deer walking through the woods, and there’s even the chance you could spot a bear roaming near the road.

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.

Had a great time. Our guide was knowledgeable and knew where to go to find the wildlife even though there was a car accident that forced us to take a detour. We saw moose, elk, antelope, deer and quit a few sites. Would like to do it again!!

This excursion has a lot to offer - loads of history about the Grand Tetons, breathtaking scenery, and animal sightings along with detailed explanations about animal behavior. The mountain range and the wildflowers are scenic and you will see beauty around you at every turn. Highly recommend especially if this is your first visit to the Grand Tetons because you will gain an overview of the area and you can plan to come back for more! Our driver was so kind and knowledgeable and gave us plenty of opportunities to take pictures. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to arrive at the meeting place because we were held up in traffic due to a moose crossing. Our driver and fellow passengers graciously waited as long as they could for us. But I would recommend that you plan on arriving at least 1/2 hour early just in case. And check your GPS close to the time that you will need to be there - we thought that we only had a 15 minute drive but in reality it was a 40 minute drive due to traffic.

Hi Erin! Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, despite the always surprising "moose-jam". Folks often laugh when we mention traffic here - but often our traffic is caused by strolling critters

Great Teton Tour

We had an evening four our trip with Hailey. Even though we had driven through the park but the information and description of the park by Hailey, put a new perspective and respect for the Teton. Hailey is a great spotter, we had great viewing of magnificent Elks and Moose. Bears did not pay heed to her efforts and we did not see them. Hailey is knowledgeable, loves to answer questions, does her best to find best viewings, great company.We love our time.
