Experience the Great American Eclipse with Wildlife Expeditions
August 17- 24, 2017
On August 21, 2017, Jackson Hole skywatchers will be treated with a rare and spectacular celestial show. A total solar eclipse will grace American soil for the first time since 1979. The Teton valley is located in the path of totality, directly in line as the Moon’s orbit passes directly between Earth and the Sun. What better destination to experience this rare marvel than the Teton range, as the moon completely obscures the sun at 11:35am, casting the breathtaking valley in shadow.
Wildlife Expeditions has put together a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view this solar eclipse in combination with a 7-day/6-night expedition. This all-inclusive experience will explore our nation’s most breathtaking national parks and observe the wildlife that make this ecosystem so remarkable. You will start your journey at a boutique hotel in the town of Jackson Hole, experiencing this wild west town in the evening while exploring Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park during the day with one of our experienced naturalists. As Jackson Hole begins to buzz with excitement days before the eclipse, your expedition will escape the crowds and relocate to a charming lodge in the Buffalo Valley, overlooking the entire Teton Range. This expedition includes two day trips to Yellowstone National Park to explore the iconic geothermal features as well as the magnificent Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. On August 21, you will rise early and position yourself to view the eclipse across the valley to the east.
