What To Expect
Begin your wildlife tour with a gourmet coffee, tea or hot chocolate from one of Jackson's local coffee houses. Then head out to explore 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. Wildlife we frequently encounter on this trip includes bison, elk, deer, moose, fox, coyote, bald eagle, trumpeter swan, and if we're lucky, wolves. If time allows we might also choose to stop at the Jackson Hole Visitor Center or the new Moose visitor center in Grand Teton National Park.
