Grand Tetons

Transportation and Accommodations

Getting There

The easiest way to get to the Grand Tetons quickly is by flying into Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The airport is very small, but sits right in the valley with the mountains surrounding the airport. The city of Jackson Hole is only about 15 minutes from the airport and easily accessible from the airport either by taxi or rental car.

Getting Around

To travel around Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons, you will need a car or should plan to visit with an organized group. Having a car will allow you to travel to different parts of the parks including trailheads for hiking and viewpoints from the road. It will also give you flexibility to day-trip to Yellowstone National Park just north of Grand Tetons National Park. If visiting in the winter and planning to ski or snowboard in the area, there are shuttles that take visitors from some housing areas to the base of the mountain.
