Great Bear & Mighty Wolf

Join the Anvil Hotel and the Teton Science School, and embark on an expedition into America's wildest heartland with this one-of-a-kind, wildlife-viewing experience.





Channel your inner-explorer, and join the Anvil Hotel and Teton Science Schools for a Jackson Hole experience like no other, with our four-night Great Bear & Mighty Wolf package. Spend your first night at our newly-renovated property, ideally located in the heart of downtown Jackson. And discover the remote beauty, rugged spirit, and creative energy that has turned the town into one of America’s most compelling destinations. Then set-off for three days of wilding-out on our answer to the African safari.

In place of the Serengeti, the ever-grand Yellowstone – blanketed in a kaleidoscope of autumnal colors – sets the scene for prime wildlife viewing. And rather than a ranger, your foray into the park will be in the company of a trained biologist, who will not only help you uncover America’s “big five” (bison, moose, elk, bear, and wolves), but also educate you on the complex issues surrounding wolf reintroduction and the preservation of the various micro-ecosystems. In-between visits to iconic sites, like Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs, you’ll witness bears stocking up on food for their long winter naps, wolves hunting in the Lamar and Hayden Valleys, and large bull elks guarding their harems from hungry predators. Post-expedition, wind down and recount the memories during your final night at the Anvil Hotel. All-in-all, this is an enriching experience undoubtedly worthy of #thebucketlist.
