  • Join our experienced guides for a 3 hour trip into the heart of Virginia’s elk restoration zone.
    -spring tours take place during a time where the cows are ready to give birth, and the bulls are shedding there racks, grouping back up fore the summer months.

  • Fall trips take place during a time when Virginia's elk herd is in rut, and guests often witness large groups of elk, the majestic bugling of the Bull elk, and even fights to establish dominance.

  • In addition, guests attending later tours will witness the full splendor of the Fall season in Central Appalachia.

  • With a 100% success rate on viewing elk and many other species of animals, including whitetail deer, wild turkey, and the occasional black bear, our elk tours are sure to please.

  • Tours include a picnic meal and bottled water from the Rhododendron Restaurant.

  • Guests are encouraged to wear long pants, season appropriate clothing in earth colors, and bring their own cameras/binoculars.

  • They are also encouraged to refrain from wearing heavily scented perfumes or body sprays as elk have a very developed sense of smell and may run from strong scents.

Your vehicle should have good ground clearance and be able to navigate gravel and dirt roads.
