Programs and Tours for Groups

Engage your group. Inspire your visit.

The wonder of Grandfather Mountain is all around you, every visit. But when you add a special program or tour for your group, you take your experience to the next level. Choose from these options, or contact us to create a customized program for your group.

Special Programs & Guided Habitat Tours with Staff Naturalist

Our Education Staff has prepared a selection of age-specific, curriculum based programs available to school groups for an additional activity fee of $1 per student. Programs last approximately one hour.

Our naturalist also leads informative and entertaining tours of the Animals Habitats (by appointment). A $1 activity fee will be added for each student on the Habitat tour (church groups and coach groups that desire the guided habitat tour pay $1 per person). Ask the reservationists how you can include this guided tour in your visit. Plan on the tour taking 45 minutes.

Naturalist programs and habitat tours must be requested at the time of reservation to ensure that the dates and times will be available.

Behind the Scenes tours of the animal habitats are offered every weekend from April to October. Keeper for a Day outings are offered on the second Tuesday of each month, April to October. Follow the links for more details.
