The Wind River Visitors Council’s (WRVC) mission is to “stimulate tourism by increasing awareness of, and encourage visitation to, the unique destinations, activities and events in Wind River Country.”

The WRVC, located at 100 N 1st Street in Lander, (in the same building as the Lander Chamber) is responsible for promoting the travel and tourism industry in Fremont County and on the Wind River Indian Reservation. The Council was formed by a Joint Powers Agreement in 1989 between the Fremont County Commissioners, the cities of Lander and Riverton, and the towns of Dubois, Hudson, and Shoshoni.
