Step into a land of sublime and rugged mountain scenery, centred on the towering peaks of the Grand Teton Mountain Range.
Located in the northwest of Wyoming, the Grand Teton National Park spans around 310,000 acres. It nestles in the spectacular Jackson Hole Valley, with the winding Snake River running through it. Incidentally, if you’re a keen photographer, one of the best spots to capture a glorious sunset is at Snake River Overlook.
The park is one of the best hiking destinations in the US, with hundreds of miles of scenic trails for every ability. Challenge yourself to reach the top of Signal Mountain for panoramic views of the whole park, or go up to Inspiration Point to discover a beautiful secret waterfall. These are just a handful of the unforgettable experiences on offer – so pack your hiking boots.
It’s also a top spot for bird watching, with hundreds of species either living here or passing through. Highlights include the trumpeter swan and the calliope hummingbird. The park is rich with other wildlife too, so you might spot a bear, bison, elf, moose or fox on your visit.
The Grand Teton National Park is bursting with things to see and do. You can hop on a boat trip across Jenny Lake, and marvel at the reflections of the mountain range on the surface of the water. Or why not set off on a scenic drive across the length of the Tetons? Another thrilling option is to go on safari with an experienced guide, spotting animals and learning all about the area.
There are even interesting historical sites to discover here, including the Mormon Row historic district with its complex of traditionally built barns.
