We will pick you up at your place of lodging* before making our way to Grand Teton National Park. The Tetons are a spectacular backdrop for wildlife viewing, and even the most hard-to-wake sleepers will be glad for the early start. Your guide will identify wildlife as you indulge in baked goods and hot beverages from the comfort of our customized Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans. We will stop to view wildlife through our high-quality spotting scopes and binoculars, occasionally watching nearby animals through the vehicle’s roof hatches. Our tours are tailored to your interests and abilities: the morning may include short walks to secluded spots in the park or extended stops for photography. Throughout the entire tour, our guides will answer your questions, share their knowledge, and teach you how to safely find and observe wildlife on your own. What’s included?
- An extremely passionate and knowledgeable guide with a trained eye for spotting wildlife
- A pair of binoculars for each participant and high-quality spotting scopes to view wildlife without disturbing their natural behavior
- A window seat in our comfortable, customized, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans (with roof hatches that allow for easy wildlife observation)
