Explore national parks
Jackson serves as a great base for short excursions or all day adventures to Grand Teton National Park. Visit scenic Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake for amazing views and great hiking. At least one full day should be spent in Yellowstone, the word's first national park. Sprawling across volcanic plateaus in the northwest corner of Wyoming, Yellowstone contains more than two million acres of crystalline lakes, thundering waterfalls, panoramic vistas and steaming geysers including Old Faithful.
Guided wildlife safaris
Surrounded by pristine wilderness, Amangani is the perfect base from which to enjoy wildlife safaris. Take to the flatlands, the wetlands, the valleys and the forests with your own personal guide in a luxury SUV and enjoy nature up close and personal. Sightings of moose, bears, coyotes, elk and deer – even wolves and mountain lions – are possible. Also, keep an eye out for the 300 species of birds found in Jackson Hole, including bald eagles, mountain bluebirds, trumpeter swans and sandhill cranes.
Water adventures on Snake River
Jackson Hole is home to some of the world's best trout fishing. The lakes and streams below the Tetons feature one of the remaining populations of wild cutthroat trout as well as many other game fish. Meanwhile, the power exerted by Snake River creates the opportunity for exciting whitewater rafting as it winds its way through Snake River Canyon. Thrill-seekers will enjoy the summer sun and refreshing waters of the river as a guide takes you on this adventure.
