Sunset Elk Experience, Just in time for Rutting Season

Available on September 13th and 27th, 2018, this rare package gives guests the opportunity to observe elk during their most active time of the year.

Each fall the call of the wild can be heard in North Carolina’s Cataloochee Valley when the elk enter rutting season. This is an active time of the year when the male bulls engage in a piercing sound called bugling and enter into antler wrestling matches with other males.  For those lucky enough to witness this fall ritual, it is a sight and sound to behold. Esther Blakely, master naturalist and elk expert will lead the tour and provide information on the area’s rich history, wildlife and the reintroduction of elk in 2001.

Available twice this fall, September 13th and 27th,  2018, the two night package, which needs to overlap the 13th or 27th, 2018, is priced for two people. The package features the four-hour sunset journey to Cataloochee Valley, luxury accommodations, all meals, including a snack and beverage for the four-hour tour followed by a dinner basket upon your return. The package starts at $1280 per room plus tax and service charge.  Additional guests can be added for an extra fee.  The “Sunset Elk Experience” package is limited to 4 people per day available.

Please call The Swag directly at 800-789-7672 to make your reservation for the “Sunset Elk Experience” package.
