Owner description: Grizzly Country Wildlife Adventures offers world class guided tours through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Spend the day exploring Grand Teton National Park under the spectacular Teton Range looming overhead at 13,770 feet. Hear stories of fur trappers and mountain men that came into the valley to make a living and decided to lay down there hats in Jackson Hole and make a life in this sometimes harsh but beautiful climate. Make sure to keep a keen eye, there is nothing like being the first to spot one of the animals that reside in the Greater Yellowstone Eco System. Catching a black bear high up in a berry bush or spotting a Pronghorn, aka North Americas fastest land mammal, sprint through a meadow before your friends will definitely earn you some bragging rights on your trip! We will provide binoculars and your guide will set up a spotting scope so that you can see every little detail of these animals from a grizzly bear’s claws that can reach up to 4 inches long to the super soft velvet that cover the antlers of a moose’s paddles in the summer time. Or head up north into Yellowstone National Park and take in some 10,000 thermal features. You will see geysers that erupt 100 feet over your head and bacteria mats that are so colorful they rival fine art. Don’t worry about missing out on the animals listed above, they also call Yellowstone home and love to make an appearance on our tours. If you are lucky you could witness a bison taking a dust bath to keep away the bugs or watch a grizzly protect a fresh kill in the Hayden Valley. Americas first National Park covers an impressive 2,221,766 acres, so we want to make sure that you are well fed and comfortable throughout the 10-12 hour tour. Before you leave Jackson we will fuel up at a local coffee shop or market and just when the first tummy grumbles your guide will make a beautiful gourmet picnic lunch in one of the many pretty spots up in the park. We searched far and wide for a super comfortable ride to take our VIPS on tour and we landed in Ohio, home to the Explorer Van. Each of our Vans have leather captains chairs and raised roofs leaving you feeling like a million bucks at the end of a full day of touring. Yellowstone is like no place on earth making it a must see on your trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

My wife and I booke a private tour on August, 3rd.
Everything has been perfect.
Jeff was very kind, very knowledgeable, willing to help and to explain the wildlife, the animals and everything

This has by far the best tour I ever booked. I only wish to have someone like him in Italy, we have A LOT to learn from guys like him and his wife.

“Kris Walker Helped Make Our 10th Wedding Anniversary Trip Something We Will Always Remember!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This was our first trip to Jackson Hole and the state of Wyoming. We were celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Rachael the concierge at the Terra Hotel recommended Grizzly Country Wildlife Adventure, LLC. She could not have given us better advice. Kris Walker took us on two tours: the first was a full day tour of Yellowstone National Park and the second was a sunset tour of the Grand Teton National Park. We saw every animal (Deer, Elk, Prong Horn, Moose, Bears, Hawks, Bald Eagles, Otters, Beavers, Buffalo and many more) a visitor would hope to see thanks to Kris’s sharp eyes. The conversion van used for the full day trip was very comfortable and clean as was the 4 wheel drive SUV used for the sunset trip. They provided binoculars and a long range scope to zoom in on the wildlife that was perched on rock spires or roaming a valley. Other times the buffalo were walking right around the truck so close you could hear them moving through the grass and even breathing. They thought of everything from stopping for coffee and pastry in the morning to a wonderful picnic lunch. Snacks were also provided in the form of locally made meal bars and water (provided in souvenir bottles).

Kris explained in detail about the wildlife, geography, geological and histories of the parks. He has a library of field guides and history books in his head. Each trip was pleasant, light hearted and well planned out. Kris was very friendly and genuine throughout our time together. He gave us options several times throughout the trip. Everything about this experience was 5 star and exceeded our expectations. Well done and Thank you…Mark and Shari.

“Excellent Grand Teton and Yellowstone tour with Jeff”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

We had a great time and saw a lot of wildlife..infact my wife almost got too close to a pair of elk. We took the tour on Tuesday, Aug. 13., 2013. I guess you could take the tour thru Yellowstone using the maps that were given to us. To do that the driver would not get the scenic presentation nor would the family see every thing that was pointed out to us. Everyone on the tour got along great. We did some mild walking and we saw what we wanted to see. Jeff was our guide and he was very good. He picked us up at the lodge at 0655 and got us back just before 1800. Long day but relaxing and enjoyable. The catered lunch was also very good. All in all the cost was well worth it. We went back on Thursday by ourselves and did some hiking and saw Old Faithful go off again and then timed it so we could catch Castle erupt as well

“The #1 choice for wildlife tours”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

I've spent a lot of time in Jackson Hole, WY and have been fortunate enough to see most of it through the gifted eye of Jonathan Hunt of Grizzly Country Wildlife Adventures.

There are a lot of tour choices in Jackson Hole, but this one is by far the best choice. You'll enjoy both the scenery and the personality of their guides and at the end of the tour they'll feel more like a friend.

**Their luxury vehicles are added bonus!!

“What a fantastic day with Jeff in Grand National Teton Park!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

This tour was a highlight of our trip! Jeff was personable and knowledgeable and he has a real passion for the wildlife. We bison JUMPING over a fence, elk, prohibited and a high make moose. Grizzly adventures does pay attention to details! Wish we could have booked this company and Jeff in Yellowstone but you must originate the trip outside of the park due to park rules and unfortunately we are staying in the park.
