Snake River

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

The Basics

Snake River activities are all about the water and one of the most popular ways to enjoy the rushing white water is rafting through Snake River Canyon. Join a guide to safely navigate Class III rapids from Jackson Hole in Wyoming, or head out on trip from Grand Teton National Park for amazing mountain views. Floating trips offer a calm alternative with chances to see animals like moose, deer, and river otters in their natural habitat, while jet boat tours cover the most miles in the least amount of time. Or, make a full day out of exploring Grand Teton National Park from Jackson Hole to combine a Snake River white-water rafting trip with hiking and sightseeing.

Smallest Raft, Most Fun of all Snake River Rafting!
The staff make their guests welcome from the start. Lots of help, recommendations, tips, safety pointers, safety inspections, emergency instructions. No one need have a negative experience from sun, cold water, water hazards, restrooms, change rooms, or even traffic. That way every moment is fun for everyone!

Smallest Raft, Most Fun of all Snake River Rafting!
The guides were amazing and the views were amazing! The guides are very knowledgeable about the area and they have a good sense of humor! They encourage you to get in the water in certain spots and they even let you “bull ride” which is sitting on the front of the boat with your feet hanging off the boat. All around amazing trip!

Snake River Origins

The Snake River was created by a volcanic hot spot that today sits under Yellowstone. Once known as the Lewis River, the name Snake River actually comes from a mix-up: Early pioneers misunderstood the Shoshone peoples’ hand signal for fish and thought they were signifying snakes.
