In so many ways, Winter is the heart of Grand Teton and Yellowstone. Our snowy environment contains an incredible diversity of wildlife that can be observed unlike any other time of year.  Grand Teton National Park offers incredible wildlife watching and Jackson Hole's National Elk Refuge becomes a virtual Serengetti of large game observation.  Browse through some of our Winter safaris and programs below and let us know how we can make your time here a life-long memory!  All safaris include pick-up and drop-off.

Dawn & Dusk Wildlife Safaris

Join an experienced naturalist on an unforgettable excursion into the wilds of Jackson Hole.   During one of our half-day or full-day safaris you will explore scenic locations while observing wildlife in their natural habitats.  In addition to wildlife watching, your naturalist guide will share the fascinating stories behind each species.  We record all wildlife sightings during our safaris as part of an ongoing “citizen science” project so each trip contributes to the understanding of our region’s wildlife.
