Touring beautiful, natural landscapes and enjoying the American West are two favorite pastimes of anyone lucky enough to live in or visit the United States.

There’s no better way to make that experience stand out than a wildlife tour … but what should you expect? Here are a few must-know facts before you get started. Plan your clothing, photography gear and snacks accordingly!

Weather-Appropriate Transportation

Both summer and winter are beautiful times to enjoy the majesty of Grand Teton National Park. During the winter months, temperatures can be chilly, but this tour is enjoyed in a comfortable luxury van that can accommodate groups of up to 12 people. Elongated windows allow for superior wildlife and mountain viewing.

See the Shane Cabins

One of the most popular and picturesque sights to see, we’ll make a stop at the Shane cabins. Brush up on your history before the tour.

Animal Sightings … Hopefully Many!

Grand Teton is alive with wildlife, and on any given day, you’re likely to see many examples. The path of the tour will depend on wildlife migrations at the time. This ensures you’ll likely spot some wildlife on your tour. Keep your eyes out for mammals such as bison, mule deer, moose and elk. If you’re lucky, you may also see wolves, black bears or grizzlies. For those who love the cuter side of life, look for the little guys, like groundhogs and chipmunks, that populate this 310,000-acre area.
