Savings, Scenery and the Sounds of Wildlife

The Grand Teton Lodge Company:
Elk Lovers Excursion Package at Jackson Lake Lodge

The perfect last-chance vacation getaway, Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park is offering a special $145/night Elk Lovers Excursion package from September 4 through September 27, 2009. The package offers guests a 35-percent discount on room rate along with a self-guided excursion to experience the sights and musical “bugle” sounds of the elk in Grand Teton National Park.

In addition to Grand Teton National Park’s colorful foliage, a popular fall activity is witnessing the unique sounds of elk during the annual rutting season. The bull elk’s bugle starts as a low whistling sound that builds and culminates into the high-pitched sound of a flute. The bugle lets other elk know that the bull has staked claim to a territory and a harem. In preparation for the winter season, elk herds can be found in abundance migrating through the Park toward their winter home near the town of Jackson, making it prime elk-watching season.

Jackson Lake Lodge’s Elk Lovers Excursion package is valid from September 4 (Labor Day weekend) through September 27, 2009 for new bookings only, and is based on space availability for single or double occupancy. The $145 nightly rate for Elk Lover’s Excursion includes a welcome amenity and is exclusive of tax, gratuities, and incidental charges. Use of a private car is recommended in order to enhance the overall elk experience, and transportation is not included in the package. Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling 800-628-9988.
