Program #21417RJ
8 Days | 7 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Join active lifelong learners from around the country in breathtaking Jackson Hole for a one-of-a-kind outdoor educational adventure. Experience the park cloaked in its white winter veil, complete with interpretation by first-class educators from the Teton Science Schools. Snowshoe hikes, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, sleigh rides and other inspiring, small-group encounters in America’s winter wonderland allow you to observe wild animals and study the adaptations that help them survive the winters. Enjoy the town of Jackson and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, delve into the fascinating science of snow, gaze out from atop Rendezvous Mountain and much more.


Highlights

• Explore Grand Teton National Park on cross-country skis and by snowshoe to witness the effects of glaciation and fire and to learn about skis as essential transportation for early Jackson Hole residents.
• Venture into the National Elk Refuge by sleigh and get up close to thousands of wintering elk.
• Be whisked away on a full-day dog sled adventure with experienced mushers, observing deer, elk and moose along the trail and relaxing in the waters of Granite Hot Springs at the halfway mark.
