The Jackson Hole Stagecoach has been circling Jackson’s town square for 50+ years and is over 90 years old. Everything is original just like in the 1800s. It’s the only Stagecoach in the United States you can ride on top of (perfect for kids) and is a big attraction for our European guests. The ride is 8-10 minutes and happens every day between Memorial and Labor Day.
Soar over the Teton Range suspended by a motorless glider, taking in an aerial perspective of the area’s exceptional playground.

Fly Fishing on Flat Creek offers the only public spring creek fishing in the Jackson Hole valley. The Snake River fine-spotted Cutthroat Trout in this fishery have PhDs. Only those truly devoted to the art of fly fishing tend to catch fish and catching one a day is often your goal. Known to be more of a hunting and stalking fishery, when you do look up you’ll have views of the Sleeping Indian, Teton Range and the Town of Jackson.
See the video above on Howard Cole of High Country Flies and host Latham Jenkins, spending a morning out on Flat Creek in the National Elk Refuge. For additional information see High Country’s description on fly fishing on Flat Creek.
Hot Air Ballooning in Jackson Hole is one of the best ways to gain a perspective of the amazing topography the area offers. Your hot air balloon silently glides over the tree tops and climbs upwards of four thousand feet (10,000+ in elevation) admiring the Teton Range, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and in the far distance, the Yellowstone Plateau.
Not only are the views of the landscape a humbling reflection of the beauty of this region, but you might be lucky enough to see Moose and Elk on the valley floor and Bald Eagles soaring in the morning thermals, all from the peaceful speed of flight in the hot air balloon. The Gondola (basket) is a perfect stable platform for shooting photos.
The Wyoming Balloon company offers sunrise flights during the summer and fall season by FAA certified pilots. Launching in the private open space near Teton Village and soaring for approximately an hour. Learn more about Hot Air Ballooning in Jackson Hole on their Web site.
