Wildlife Expeditions

Journey to the Wild

Scenic Float & Wildlife Expedition

This adventure either starts or ends with a half-day Sunrise or Sunset wildlife tour. Both provide excellent opportunities to view wildlife at prime times (dawn or twilight) at the base of the Tetons. Common sightings include moose, elk, bison, pronghorn, eagles and coyotes. You spend the other part of the day on a scenic float trip with Barker-Ewing Scenic Float Trips on the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park. This 10-mile scenic float trip takes 2.5–3 hours, depending on the water levels. As you float down the river, take in the beautiful riparian landscape and incredible views of the Tetons from the river. Common wildlife sighting can include moose, beavers, eagles, osprey and other birds. We can schedule the float trip and wildlife safari on different days if you choose. 

Offered: Late May - Early, September 2016
