We start the day around sunrise to view local fauna in the quiet, dawn hours. Wildlife is most active during the early mornings, and our guides know the best spots for viewing elk, moose, grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, bighorn sheep, bison, mule deer, foxes, eagles and a variety of other animals around Jackson Hole. High-quality spotting scopes and binoculars are available for enhanced wildlife observation and hot beverages and homemade muffins will be on hand to help you ease into the day.
We will stop for a lunch at a local restaurant around midday. Following lunch, we will continue our search for wildlife in the afternoon. After completing an eight hour day of observing and learning about this magnificent ecosystem, we’ll drop you off where we picked you up.
