Where are we going today?

There are some pretty amazing states in the USA, but when it comes to amazing national parks and landscapes, it's hard to beat Grand Teton National Park!

Grand Teton is located in the northwest of Wyoming, and has some of the most amazing landscapes you will see! There are the majestic mountains which actually led to the creation of the park itself. There are over 200 miles of trails that can take you on some pretty incredible adventures, and there are lakes and rivers to swim in and float down!

Four million people visit Grand Teton National Park every year, so it must be doing something right!

The Visitors Centers are a great place to start your adventure in the national park. There are actually 6 across the park, and each one can give you all the information you need on your stay there. There are interpretive walks and talks that you can find out about, as well as any programs and events that might be happening in the park. You won't want to miss those! 

Across the year, the park rangers have a number of activities that are perfect for the family to get involved with. They are great for kids too as some have special children's activities!

Each season brings something different. From the wildlife in Spring, to the geological and historical experiences in summer, to bear safety in fall and snowshoeing in winter - there are PLENTY of topics for you to immerse yourselves in! (and it's a great learning experience for the kids!)

If you are looking for a very nature based day out filled with outdoor adventure, Grand Teton National Park is the place to be! Don't forget your camera - you will need it!

    My wife and I came through here some time back. This is a beautiful place. I cannot wait until I have the chance to bicycle through this American treasure.

    The three Tetons (and Mt Moran) are spectacular and mesmerizing. Add to it the Jenny Lake and wildlife in the area, the experience is magnificent. Plan to spend at least a few days or a week in the park to enjoy its immense and pristine beauty. See the mountains, the glaciers and their reflection in the lake waters. At the same time, gaze into the vastness of the Jackson Hole and experience solitude - deep in the parks trails at a very sparsely populated area of the country.

    I've seen mountains all over the world, including Mitre Peak in New Zealand. The Grand Teton Mountains are unique. Jenny Lake reminds me of the pristine Mirror Lake in New Zealand. These mountains will take your breath away right off the airplane in Jackson Hole, WY. The only moose we saw was here at Grand Teton National Park. The full moon over the mountains made the whole trip so unique. Love this place and Jenny Lake!

    Our main concern is the accommodation private booking, particularly Jackson Lake Lodge operated by Vail Resort Hospitality - they want a lot of deposit - virtually all room charges paid in advance, if you make any changes, EACH room will be charged a changing fee?! If you happen to have a medical emergency, you are under a very stressful situation, you have to provide them Dr. Notes to get any of your money back minus the change fee?! How can we predict a medical situation 7 days in advance? It is quite absurd to us as those private companies are...Read More

    This review is less about the park (which does not lack for press) and more about the ranger led talk at the main visitors center. I have had the good fortune to sit thru a number of these over the years and this one stood out. He was fully engaged with the group and gave out a great deal of useful info on flora and fauna. This was not an 'auto-pilot' spiel at all.

How can we predict a medical situation 7 days in advance? It is quite absurd to us as those private companies are operating under our beloved National Park name... Just need to make everyone be aware of the situation! So you would be better not to make any booking and try your luck when you get there. This is different to Yellowstone accommodation. Yellowstone is actually managed by our National Park Service! :-) Let's keep our National Park Service within National Park management!
