Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) showcases one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. With its dark skies and wide-open valley, it also makes for some of the most remarkable stargazing you will ever experience. Join us for an unforgettable evening in one of America’s greatest wild places.
Your Grand Teton Experience will begin with transportation from your hotel to a special location in Grand Teton National Park with a nearly unlimited view of the night sky. You’ll enjoy the use of Teton Skies’ state-of-the-art telescopes and iPads featuring the Sky Safari app as our expert astronomers guide you through cosmos.

A Word about the Wilderness:
Although it sits only a few short miles from the town of Jackson, Grand Teton National Park is a wild place with real dangers. Here are a few pointers to help ensure a safe and fun experience for all:
- Please be respectful of wildlife. During stargazing you may encounter elk, moose, bison or other wild animals, all of which can be dangerous. Keep a safe distance between yourself and animals, listen to your astronomer’s advice and instructions, and remember that these animals deserve our respect.
- Dress appropriately. Teton Skies does its best to ensure that every guest has a comfortable experience regardless of the season. Please remember, however, that Grand Teton sits at a high elevation and that temperatures may be chilly, even in the height of summer. We recommend that you dress in comfortable layers and wear closed-toe shoes.
- Stay hydrated. Altitude affects each of us differently, but one way to ensure that you feel your best is to drink plenty of water. If you are feeling unwell at any time, please let your astronomer know so that he or she can help.
