Jackson Hole is arguably one of the most scenic airports in America. That’s because it’s the only airport located in a National Park.

The airport is conveniently located approximately 7 miles north of town, making for a quick and easy transition from plane to hotel.

Driving to Jackson Hole: 

Ever wonder why it’s called Jackson Hole? A hole is a valley, and the area is one large open valley. Surrounded by mountain passes and canyons, there are only four ways to enter Jackson Hole. From the North you can drive through Yellowstone or over Togwotee Pass. From the South you can access the valley through the Snake River Canyon, and from the West, over Teton Pass, a steep mountain pass with beautiful, sweeping views of the valley. The Wort Hotel has complimentary self-parking in their gated lot, so you don’t have to worry about fighting for a parking spot on the Town Square.
