A perfect outing for a group with diverse interests, the Wildlife, Art & Sleigh Tour will feed the souls of the adventurous and cultural. Your expert, local guide will take you through Grand Teton National Park with an eye on wildlife viewing during the morning hours when wildlife are most active. Next, step inside the award-winning and beautifully designed National Museum of Wildlife Art showcasing over 5,000 artworks representing wild animals from around the world. The day’s finale includes a century-long tradition, an open air, horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge with its 20,000 acres and winter population of elk between 7,000 and 10,000.
