Sunset Wildlife Safari
4:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. | $199.00
Early July is an ideal month to see the abundant wildlife in this exquisite corner of
Wyoming and sunset is a particularly active time of the day for many species, including
elk, mule deer, moose, antelope, bison, and bears. In the cool of the evening, you may
see animals grazing on the enormous open meadows around us. During our four-hour
safari, we’ll travel in comfort as our guide shows us how to use high-powered spotting
scopes to zero in on the “locals.” Be sure to bring your camera, because the quality of
the natural light at dusk is sensational.
Price includes hotel pick-up, an experienced local guide, use of their optics, snacks, guide gratuity, and park entrance fees.

Whitewater Rafting Trip

sections where we’ll gently float until we reach the next set of exciting rapids. This might
just be the highlight of your Jackson Hole vacation! Participants must be at least six
years old. Be sure to wear clothes that can get wet and closed-toe shoes are

Jackson Hole Rodeo
7:30 p.m.–10:30 p.m. | $45.00
A local tradition for more than 100 years, the rodeo provides the opportunity to see some highly
talented cowboys and cowgirls team up with their incredibly well-trained horses to
compete in a number of events. We’ll see team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping,
and other specialized events patterned after the real skills required on working ranches.
The rodeo also features edge-of-your-seat excitement when the bull riders and bareback
riders take to the arena while attempting to hang on for the longest eight seconds in
sports. Seats are reserved.
VIP Behind the Chutes Experience
6:00 p.m.–10:30 p.m. | $130.00
This is a very special opportunity to go behind the chutes where the cowboys and cowgirls prepare to do battle in the arena. You will see the raw untamed, unedited, and uncovered underbelly of the sport, where getting dirty goes from possibility to inevitability. Price includes reserved rodeo seats behind the chutes. We need to warn you that this is not the sterile version of the rodeo that most of the public sees you will be exposed to livestock and contestants, harsh language and manure are very possible. We will give you a tour of the back pens and give you a chance to meet cowboys and cowgirls as they prepare their equipment.
