The Basics

The vision of snow-capped Teton peaks reflecting off the waters of Jackson Lake ranks among this national park’s most stunning sights. Other than the lodges, the majority of facilities are at Colter Bay, where there’s a marina, visitor center, campground, and store.

Most guided tours of Grand Teton from Jackson Hole, Cody, or West Yellowstone include a stop at the lake, along with other popular park attractions such as Jenny Lake, the Snake River, Chapel of the Transfiguration, and the Maud Noble Cabin.

Great Grand Teton Tour
We enjoyed the views of the Grand Tetons. Our tour guide, Mike took us the road to the Mormon Row, Signal Mountain, Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake. We really enjoyed seeing the wildlife, bison, pronghorn along the Scharkabar (sp) road. He was very informative and personable guide. We were able to look through the scope that he had along to see some of the animals and landscape up close. He was patient as my sister and I couldn't walk too far without taking a break. It was a very enjoyable day.

Grand Teton National Park - Sunset Guided Tour from Jackson Hole
The guide was very knowledgeable in the history of the development of the park, as well as the stories behind each one of our destinations. The areas he took us to were spectacular! Nice to just enjoy the scenery rather than being behind the wheel.

We had a wonderful tour. Steve was great. The van was comfortable and Steve was very pleasant, knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. My wallet fell out of my backpack in the van; he found it and brought it back to my hotel. Many thanks to Steve!

Grand Teton National Park Tour from Jackson Hole
Trip was great and very well organized. Saw a moose which we were so excited about.. Made a lot of stops and got a lot of info - interesting to learn about beavers - fascinating. Steve was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I will only complain to the tour company that for almost $900 for 3 lunch should be included.
