Family adventures come in many shapes and sizes. I love planning vacations that are unique to each family. If your family loves the great outdoors and seeing wildlife in their natural surroundings, I recommend you consider a Grand Teton National Park vacation. That is where you will find the excitement and experiences your family is looking for. One of those experiences is the Grand Teton Winter Safari.
A Grand Teton Winter Safari tour can be a half day or a full day. I prefer the full day tour options, because it allows you to really immerse yourself into the local environment. However, if your family vacation time is limited, a half day is still going to give you the memories you are searching for.
A full day Grand Teton winter safari will begin with breakfast. Afterwards, you will venture into Grand Teton National Park, as well as the National Elk Refuge. So many animals live within these two areas. Imagine seeing elk, bison, moose, deer, wolves, big horn sheep, and bald eagles in their natural habitat.
Lunch is provided at a local restaurant. After your meal, your time will be spent either back in the park or at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Before your winter safari is over, you will take a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge.
Your family can enjoy the Grand Teton Winter Safari from November through April. The sleigh rides do not usually begin until December. They are all dependent on the weather and the amount of snowfall.
The best part about these winter safaris is that they are always small. There are no more than eight people within the group, so there is a chance your family will be the only ones participating when you are visiting.
It is important to note everyone in your group must be at least eight years of age to participate in the winter safari. There is no age limit for private winter safaris. Therefore, those will be the best option if you are traveling with smaller children.
The Grand Teton winter safari is just one of the many options in this part of the country. But do not feel like you are limited to this one thing while on a family vacation. I have so many other options to add to your next Grand Teton National Park vacation, as well as every other family vacation you want to take in the future.
