You’ll be able to experience Jackson Hole’s natural beauty and wildlife while enjoying a day of outdoor fun with the family.

Rock Climbing

Experienced climbers from all over the country come to Jackson Hole to take advantage of the many amazing rock climbing opportunities, but if you’re new to the sport, a guided climb is a terrific way to learn the basics.

Wildlife Tours

Journey through Jackson Hole’s stunning national parks with a naturalist guide on a wildlife trek like no other. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot bison, elk, moose, foxes, and other wildlife. Your guide will share anecdotes and knowledge about the ecology and animals you see. They also know all the best spots for taking photos, so be sure to bring a good camera with you!

Visit Grand Teton National Park

Each bend in the road through Grand Teton National Park will have you grabbing your camera, with every new vista more magnificent than the last. You’re likely to spot some bison, as well as a few elk and antelope, as you travel through Grand Teton National Park. Plan your visit to the park around sunrise or sunset to maximize your chances of seeing moose, bears, wolves, and bald eagles, or consider taking a guided tour.

Visit the Rodeo

The rodeo has been a part of Jackson Hole’s cowboy culture since the first settlers to the area arrived over a century ago. The famous Jackson Hole Rodeo takes place in downtown Jackson a few times a week, with bull riding, bronc riding, barrel racing, team roping sports, and more. Kids love the thrill of watching from the stands, and you’ll love having some time off of your feet after a day spent on the go!
