The Gros Ventre Wilderness Area is an unspoiled gem of Jackson Hole. Not receiving the summer crowds like Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Gros Ventre Wilderness Area is exceptionally beautiful. It is vast place filled with rugged mountains, quiet forests, babbling brooks, and lush wildflower meadows, and in my eyes, one of the truly special places in Wyoming.
There is no better way to experience “The GV” than by joining us for a horseback pack trip and guided hiking adventure at our luxury backcountry camp. Our 2 night trips give you an opportunity to see parts of the country seldom seen by other visitors.
“And this, our life exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.”
Getting away from all of the noise of everyday life, and spending some quality time in the woods, is incredibly invigorating and clarifying. Rarely do we have the time, space, and state of mind to appreciate the natural world, but it is such a worthwhile exercise. I believe this is what Shakespeare is getting at with these words. Being able to have this experience in private and intimate setting allows you to fully engage with Mother Nature.
The Wilderness awaits you at our backcountry camp. There is plenty to explore: hidden waterfalls, mountaintop vistas, and gin-clear alpine lakes. There are meadows that seem straight out of “The Sound of Music”, and even an historic abandoned trapper’s cabin…
Who said that a wilderness pack trip has to be like “The Revenant” or “Into The Wild” style? Our guests rave that this is more Glamping than camping! At our backcountry camp, we like the idea of coming back from an afternoon adventure to a comfortable seat next to a crackling fire, with a delicious warm meal and maybe even a cold beer or two (our “Creek Cooler” right next to camp stays at a consistent 45 degrees). After a full day, sleep well in your soft bed, knowing that hot coffee or tea is coming your way, delivered to your tent in the morning.
