Spring into Action for the Best Wildlife Viewing of the Year!
Jackson Hole Comes Alive in Springtime
Daffodils are blooming, green grass is meandering its way across the valley and spring has sprung here in Jackson Hole! Perhaps the most underrated season of the year for visiting, come enjoy the many wonders and sun-filled days spring has to offer by exploring the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem without the congestion of crowds. Our special Rising Stars of Wyoming package lasts until June 15, complete with a full day safari where you’ll spot some of the largest cutthroat trout surfacing in the Snake River, mammals calving and bears stretching their legs after a long slumber. You’ll also enjoy a nature hike on the ridge of East Gros Ventre Butte where there’s ample opportunity to spot bighorn sheep, migrating birds or a bald eagle catching its lunch for the day. And to top it off, spend a night stargazing at the clear western sky with our very own astronomy experts. With four full days to fill, if you jump on this special package early enough you can enjoy one of the local’s best kept secrets — the time of year when the Grand Teton National Park road is closed to motor traffic but open to bicyclists and pedestrians. Experience the serene and magical peaks up close in a way you’ll never forget.
Pre-Runoff Fishing in Jackson Hole
For those of you who are serious anglers out there, now is the magical time of year for pre-runoff fishing in Jackson. As the snow banks melt, locals everywhere are grabbing their streamers and rushing out to their favorite fishing spots before the runoff starts and muddies the waters until the start of summer. This is the time of year when you hear stories (and sometimes see photographic evidence) of that 24-inch cutthroats that dwell in our waters. Our concierge can help you get set up with a drift boat or guided tour, or explore the endless bank of the Snake on your own — just don’t forget your net!
