Saddle up! Join us for an exciting week of Western adventure that includes horseback riding, a rodeo, mountain bike riding and whitewater rafting! Marvel at majestic views of the Teton Mountain Range as you explore local trails on horseback or bike along the Buffalo River Valley of Grand Teton National Park. Whitewater raft through rolling rapids in the Grand Canyon of the Snake River. At the Jackson Hole Rodeo watch bull riders, bareback riders and try your hand at the calf ribbon pull, a favorite local event. With a naturalist expert, study the region's variety of flora and fauna while scouting for eagles, elk, moose or grizzly bears. Discover the lifestyles of native animals through "hands-on" investigation of real skins and skulls.
