GUIDED TOURS AND PRIVATE RENTALS

Scenic Safaris, the year-round outdoor and wildlife tour operator specializing in the wildlife and scenery of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and their environs, will open for the 2021 season from June 1 through Oct. 31. Summer vacationers looking for an exhilarating adventure into the wilderness surrounding Jackson Hole, Wyoming, can now book private van tours, ATV tours and side-by-side tours or reserve the vehicles for self-guided excursions. Scenic Safaris, operated by National Park Service concessionaire Forever Resorts, offers half-day and full-day tours showcasing not only the iconic landscapes, but also the many species of fauna that call the parks home.

Operating on Polaris side-by-side vehicles, Scenic Safaris offers two, four and eight-hour tours or multi-day rentals for self-guided tours. These tours allow visitors to navigate rough terrain with much greater agility and comfort than regular road vehicles. Guests opting for half- or full-day guided tours will be led by a local tour expert equipped with extensive knowledge of the area’s history and wildlife.  With capacity restrictions still recommended when social distancing cannot be maintained indoors, all Scenic Safaris’ luxury van tours will be reserved for private group bookings for the 2021 season.
