Jackson Hole EcoTour Adventures offers a variety of wildlife viewing, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing in the Jackson Hole, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone Ecosystems. EcoTour Adventures was created in 2008 with the idea of helping people connect with the natural world through wildlife observation, natural history interpretation and backcountry exploration. We believe that when one is more familiar with the intricate workings of the ecosystem, he or she has a deeper appreciation and connection with their environment.
