Some of the best vacations are experienced with family and friends – and the bigger the group, the better! But how do you decide what to do with the whole gang while visiting Jackson? We’ve got some ideas that will be sure to make some great memories.
With the majestic Tetons as a playground, there’s no better way to enjoy the winter here than on a snowmobile. This activity is perfect for all ages (8 and up). Bundle up for the trip and get to Scenic Safaris. They offer half-day and full-day trips to Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park and in the surrounding national forests. If you just want to visit Yellowstone, check out Old Faithful Snowmobile Tours for full-day and even multi-day tours.
Dog Sledding Tour
For a unique winter activity, reserve your spots for a dog sledding tour. The dog sled teams love what they do and are ready to take you on an amazing trip through the groomed wilderness trails of the Tetons. Jackson Hole Iditarod Dog Sled Tours have 170 authentic Alaskan racing sled dogs that are “manageable, well-trained, experienced athletes, but they are also affectionate and friendly.”
Summer Rafting Trip
As the snowmelt comes down from the mountain tops in the summer, the water level goes up on the Snake River and that means it’s time for some fun on the water! We know that different members of your group may like a different experience. The area rafting companies have everyone covered. Dave Hansen Whitewater and Scenic River Trips can guide you through the thrill of the whitewater rapids or let you meander down the river at a much slower pace.
A Taste of the Wild West
Jackson is in the heart of the west and we want everyone in your party to have a real feel of the wild wild west. Start with the Town Square Shootout Memorial Day through Labor Day. This has been a tradition since 1957. Next, saddle up to the bar in the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. Try an elk burger or buffalo burger along with your favorite drink and listen to some live country music. And don’t miss the Jackson Hole Rodeo where you’ll watch some of the best cowboys and cowgirls compete in an outdoor arena.
Gang’s all here! Make your plans now for the whole group to come to Jackson. No matter what time of year you come, there’s always something adventurous to experience!
