About This Tour

Slide Lake

Come and see Grand Teton National Park from your car with GaperGuide’s self-guided tour. It is entirely automatic and tells you everything you need to know about the park while enjoying the scenic drive. It’s like having a live tour guide in your car with you. Let us show you the way!

This tour covers the entire area of Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming—including the inner and outer roads of the park, downtown Jackson, and the small town of Kelly.

The GaperGuide tour of Grand Teton National Park will show you the sights, wildlife, hikes, resorts, picnic areas, and even where the bathrooms are.

Grand Teton National Park was established in 1929, and it is named for the mountain range that completely dominates the view. The park is an impressive 45 miles long and 26 miles wide at its widest.

There are pristine mountains and rivers, herds of bison, elk, pronghorn and deer. There are wolves, grizzly and black bears, mountain lions and moose. Bald eagles and osprey perch in the trees by the side of the Snake River and hunt cutthroat trout.

The Teton Range contains six most obvious peaks: the Grand Teton, Mt. Owen, Nez Perce, the Middle Teton, Teewinot Mountain, and the broad Mt. Moran. Hikers, climbers, skiers, and mountaineers flock to these mountains every year. Almost 3 million people visit Grand Teton National Park annually.

The trappers, pioneers, homesteaders and ranchers who populated Jackson Hole, which is the valley that makes up the flat part of Grand Teton National Park, created a rich and colorful history that you can explore.

The GaperGuide tour will tell some of the tales from the early years, show you the old homesteads, and discuss the relationship between the natural environment and the hardy people who helped create the park.

This tour will take you to Jenny Lake, Signal Mountain, Oxbow Bend and Mormon Row.
