Journey to the Wild

Wildlife, Art and Sleigh Tour

Our Wildlife, Art and Sleigh Tour combines the best of winter wildlife activities in Jackson Hole. You will observe wildlife in Grand Teton National Park, visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and end the day with a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge.

We start the day early, exploring Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest. Take in the majesty of the snow capped Tetons at sunrise as you search for wildlife. Our knowledgeable guides will bring you to the best locations for finding elk, deer, moose, bighorn sheep, bison, coyotes, trumpeter swans and other animals. For lunch, we visit the Palate Restaurant at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Enjoy your meal while looking onto the 20,000-acre National Elk Refuge. We then tour the Museum's galleries of fine paintings, sculptures and photography devoted to North American wildlife. The day ends with a horse drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge, where 7,000-10,000 elk spend their winters.

Offered: Mid December through Early March (weather permitting)
