Hotel Jackson offers a curated experience for families who are looking for national park adventures, skiing, and so much more
If seeing the northern lights has been on your family’s bucket list, you don’t have to go all the way to Alaska or Iceland to make it happen. Hotel Jackson, a boutique luxury property in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is launching an exclusive “Northern Skies Experience”—a once-in-a-lifetime stargazing experience with the possibility of seeing the northern lights in Grand Teton National Park.
Guests who book this excursion will head out from Hotel Jackson and be led by expert guides from Wyoming Stargazing who will explain the planets, stars, and everything else you can see in the night sky. Whether the northern lights will make their presence known depends on the weather (and a little good luck), but fingers crossed you’ll get to see the Aurora Borealis with your own eyes.
The three-to-four-hour excursion takes families out to experience Grand Teton National Park, and it includes a photo shoot so you’ll never forget the family experience.
Additional offerings for the winter season include a dog sledding experience with Call of the Wyld, guided snowshoe hikes, ice fishing adventures, and winter horseback riding. To top off your winter experience and make your kids think you totally rule, cozy up under a pile of blankets for a sleigh-driven tour through the National Elk Refuge where you’ll see wildlife as you’ve never seen it before.
Curated national park tours are also available and are really the best way to see these majestic lands during the winter season. Discover the geothermal wonders and wildlife of snow-blanketed Yellowstone via snow-coach or snowmobile.
If skiing is your jam, Hotel Jackson makes it easy with ski butler service that does in-room fittings and delivers your gear to you so you don’t have schlep it all to the mountain on your own. And the luxury ski shuttle will get you and the kids to the mountain without any tears (from you or the little ones).
Hotel Jackson has 55 stunning guest rooms, including four suites (perfect for your family to settle in), nestled among some of the country’s best skiing, white water rafting, ziplining, hiking, and fly fishing. It’s minutes away from Grand Teton National Park and just an hour away from Yellowstone National Park.
