Jackson Hole is one of the best wildlife watching locations in the world, and that’s not an exaggeration. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is the only area left in the lower 48 where every species that should be here still is. And winter is one of the best times to see the local fauna. Though bears are hibernating and the pronghorn have migrated south, it’s the time to catch a group of 10 to 12 moose together in Grand Teton National Park, bighorn sheep clashing heads along Miller Butte or a pack of wolves looking over the thousands of elk on the National Elk Refuge.
But the key to finding the animals is to have knowledgeable and experienced guides who know when and where to look. On a guided wildlife tour you’ll be driven through the valley, taken to not just the hot spots, but the places guides know you might see something special. Along the way the guides, who normally have backgrounds in wildlife biology or natural history, will give you a customizable and educational trip. “It’s about providing personalized experiences, not just the hits,” says Tenley Thompson, a wildlife biologist and guide with EcoTour Adventures.
Things might look a little different this year, so here are a few things to keep in mind:
How we’re keeping the experiences Clean, Careful and Connected
