Grand Teton National Park Wyoming
Take a Snake River float trip, see Jenny Lake and Jackson Wyoming, and visit Grand Teton National Park while enjoying a Caravan Mt Rushmore and Yellowstone Tour.
The Grand Teton mountain range in Wyoming offers exceptional scenery with mountain peaks reaching over 13,000 feet above sea level. The Grand Teton range and the Jackson Wyoming area provided the spectacular backdrop for the 1953 movie Shane, starring Alan Ladd and Jack Palance.
Grand Teton National Park, at the base of the Teton Range, encompasses over 310,000 acres. Astounding beauty is everywhere in this part of Wyoming including an abundance of wildlife, breathtaking landscapes replete with rich, historical homesteads and huge cattle ranches.
Grand Teton is the highest summit in this sub range of the Rocky Mountains with a height of 13,775 feet above sea level. As part of the Snake River drainage basin, local creeks and glaciers are fed by this massive mountain range.
Jenny Lake Wyoming
Almost 12,000 years ago glaciers pushed the remains of crushed rocks and sediment down the mountain side carving Cascade Canyon and creating a Moraine. The area now includes Jenny Lake, which was named after a Shoshone wife of a trapper. As with many lakes in the park, Jenny Lake Grand Teton is considered to be a pristine lake thanks to its elevation at 7,000 feet above sea level. Surrounded mostly by nature, Jenny Lake has experienced very little impact from modern water or air pollution.
Grand Teton Snake River Float Trip
The Snake River winds its way through a corridor that is heavily relied upon by many of the native animals in Grand Teton National Park. As part of Caravan’s Mt Rushmore tour (and weather permitting) Caravan guests enjoy a memorable Snake River float trip, fully guided by local tour guides who meet National Park — as well as Triangle X Ranch — safety requirements.
Your guides provide excellent, interpretative information about the area’s natural history, its wildlife and geology, and about the impact of humans on the area. Binoculars and cameras are recommended since this a good opportunity to observe beavers, osprey, eagles, and other waterfowl and animals in their natural habitat.
Jackson Wyoming (which is often incorrectly referred to as Jackson Hole) is part of Teton County and situated within Jackson Hole Valley. Jackson was initially home to five major Native American tribes including the Araphaho, Shoshoni, Cheyenne, Ute, and Crow tribes. Trappers also had a significant presence in the Jackson Hole area during the 1800s.
The town of Jackson is noted for its shed-antler horn archways that frame four entrances into the downtown square. Jackson is a thriving hub of charming western shops and art galleries and the town of 10,000+ is not far from Yellowstone, another stop on Caravan’s Mt Rushmore tour.
Million Dollar Cowboy Bar
The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in downtown Jackson is Wild West extravagance at its best. It’s famous for its unique collection of western memorabilia, unparalleled architecture, and authentic western saddle barstools.
Known globally for its country entertainment and western dancing, The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar has hosted numerous major country artists over the years including Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Tanya Tucker and Hank Williams Jr.

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
