Description

Join an experienced naturalist guide to explore Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park in search of wintering wildlife in their habitat. The trip starts exploring the National Elk Refuge, home to thousands of wintering elk, hundreds of bison, bighorn sheep and an array of waterfowl. We will then head north along the western boundary of the refuge to Grand Teton National Park. Here we will travel along the southern park roads watching for wildlife and stopping frequently for photo-ops. You will see places like antelope flats, the small town of Kelly and have views of several mountain ranges that form the valley of Jackson Hole. Jackson Hole’s wintering wildlife is abundant with opportunities to see bison, elk, deer, moose, fox, coyote, bald eagle, trumpeter swans, and if we’re lucky, wolves. Along the way you will learn about the geology, history and ecology of the area. The route varies seasonally based on group interest, road closures and wildlife migration.

You will begin this wildlife photo tour with pickup from your centrally located Jackson Hole hotel or residence. After pickup you will head north along the western boundary of the National Elk Refuge to Grand Teton National Park. Here you will travel along the southern park roads watching for wildlife in their natural habitat and stopping frequently for photo-ops. You will see places like Antelope flats, home to historic homesteads and free ranging herds of bison and pronghorn.

Your guide will also show you the Moose-Wilson road famous for abundant flora and fauna. Wildlife you will frequently encounter on this trip includes bison, elk, deer, moose, pronghorn (aka antelope) fox, coyote, bear, bald eagle, trumpeter swans, and if you're lucky wolves. If time allows your group might choose to stop at the Jackson Visitor Center or the new moose visitor center in Grand Teton National Park. The route varies seasonally based on group interest, road closures and wildlife migration.
