Jackson: Grand Teton and National Elk Refuge Winter Day Trip

1. Jackson: Grand Teton and National Elk Refuge Winter Day Trip

After an early morning pickup from your hotel, your guide will take you to Grand Teton National Park. Even in the chilling winter, wildlife such as moose, bison, bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer, bald eagles, golden eagles, pronghorn, coyotes, and even wolves can be spotted in the park.  You will witness the beauty of the wide, snowy plains that stretch out to the jagged mountains as you learn about the ancient geology that gave rise to the landscape. At midday, escape the cold and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in the famous western-cowboy town of Jackson, Wyoming. After lunch, you will head back outside for a horse-drawn sleigh ride on the National Elk Refuge, carrying you through the low valley that hosts thousands of wintering elk. Snap photos of the large herds as your guide explains how the elk migrate from the surrounding area to the refuge, a 24,700-acre (9,996-hectare) winter sanctuary hosting 47 different mammals and nearly 175 species of birds such as trumpeter swans and bald eagles. At the end of a memorable 8-hour tour of this winter wonderland, you will return to your hotel.

The actual time in the dogsled is approximately 45 minutes. Set off into the beautiful pastures of Heart Six Ranch and travel along Buffalo Valley Road. Take in the Buffalo Fork, a tributary that runs in front of the ranch and through Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest. Finish off your trip with a warm cup of hot chocolate.

What people are saying about Jackson, Wyoming

WOW!!! In order…red fox, mule deer, bald eagle, moose, trumpeter swans, coyotes, elk and bison. And that was before we even hit the National Elk Refuge. Transportation was fantastic and comfortable…and our guide Dallin was even better. As knowledgeable as you could ever hope to have and very personable with a great sense of humor. Lunch at Sidewinders was awesome. Well worth every dollar.

The van tour and sleigh ride were outstanding. We saw moose, mule deer, red fox, coyote, bald eagle, and hundreds of elk. Our guide, Kyle, was great. He had a lot of local wildlife and area knowledge and was very helpful. Don’t hesitate to book this trip.

Our tour guide, Kyle, was full of energy and knowledge! It was a cold, snowy day but we still managed to see so many amazing things! Very happy with our experience and would recommend to anyone who is looking to learn more about this beautiful area.
