Jackson Hole is a wondrous place, with access to so much terrain and activities that it can be slightly overwhelming. Hence why some sort of tour can be a great way to ensure that you leave feeling satisfied, no matter what your interests are. This list of tours offers something for everyone, whether you want to get your view from the top of a mountain or the back of a bus, slightly buzzed!
It’s hard to think of a better way to start your day than a sunrise wildlife tour guided by Eco Tour Adventures. This four hour excursion practically guarantees that you will see wildlife, most often bison, elk and moose. If you are lucky, you will have a chance to see black bears, grizzlies or even wolves! They also offer a sunset tour if your group prefers to sleep in while on vacation.
Scenic Brewery Tour
The best brewery tour of Jackson Hole, enjoy a beautiful drive through the Tetons with stops at three of the best local breweries. Unlike any other bar crawl you’ve been on, this scenic beer tour winds through the Tetons, allowing you to see much of Jackson Hole’s surrounding areas including the Snake River Canyon, the Teton Pass and the Palisades Reservoir. Plus, you get three different signature flights of locally brewed beers and a chance to see the facilities that make them.
2 Day Bear and Wolf Safari
If you are determined to see some of the rarest wildlife during your visit in Jackson, we recommend going on a multi-day tour to increase the likelihood as much as possible. Of all the multi-day tours, we recommend Jackson Hole Wildlife Safari’s 2 day bear and wolf safari if you have the time and budget for it. Focused on finding the dominant predators of the valley, this tour ventures into Grand Teton National Park as well as Yellowstone. You will also have the opportunity to see Yellowstone’s most famous attractions including Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and Mammoth Hot Springs.
Jackson Hole is covered in bike trails, both paved and dirt, making it a great way to explore the Valley. Teton Mountain offers a range of half and full-day guided tours that fit your needs. Some of our favorites include the Jenny Lake tour inside Grand Teton National Park and the Antelope Flats tour which is a great way to see wildlife as well!
Lower Loop of Yellowstone
Yellowstone Day Tours offers a variety of options both in length and cost but there is a reason that the Lower Loop of Yellowstone is the most popular way to see the oldest national park in the United States. While 12 hours may not sound short, this tour is insanely dense with attractions considering you get a chance to see almost all of Yellowstone’s most known attractions, including Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, Hayden Valley, Jackson Lake, fountain Paint Pots and the Upper & Lower Falls. You can also find several self-guided tours online!
If you don’t have 12 hours free in your itinerary and want to stay closer to Jackson, a tour of Grand Teton National Park can be just as beautiful and fit in an afternoon. You can drive yourself around the park in a self-guided tour or ride in a Double Black bus if there’s a lot of you and you need group transportation in Jackson Hole.
