Overview

Join us for unforgettable hiking experience amidst the backdrop of the Grand Teton National Park! The stunning beauty, towering mountains and abundant wildlife have drawn people to this place for more than 11,000 years. Located south of Yellowstone National Park, and north of the town of Jackson, Grand Teton National Park's main draw are the celestial iconic rising peaks of the Teton Range. During our 10-day adventure, we will explore all of the Tetons' wonders, from canyons to vistas, and from high alpine terrain to valley meadows and carpeted forests. We will alternate our time between the eastern side of the park in Wyoming, featuring more classic hikes and historic relics, and the western, more "quiet" side of the park in Idaho, featuring an ascent to Table Mountain at over 11,000'. One of our hikes will end with a scenic boat ride and another will start with a mountain ascent via an aerial tram. We will attend a western music show and barbeque and also have time to enjoy the charm of downtown Jackson Hole. This trip, with 8 consecutive hiking days, is ideal for the experienced outdoor adventurer, able to hike 8-16 miles each day with altitude gains that range from 1100'-4000'. Accommodations throughout will be a combination of both hotels and cabins, and will include breakfasts, dinners and fees.
