    white water rafting in jackson hole

    Wild & Wet or Relaxed & Leisurely

    You can go big or you can go placid. The waterways of the West offer a full menu of choices from a guided wildlife-viewing raft trip at sunset in Grand Teton National Park to whitewater thrills at Lunch Counter and Taco Hole on the Snake River.

    An 8-mile whitewater trip down the Snake River is sure to make you at least a little wet but exhilarated, too. A scenic float at the base of the Tetons is more laid-back, but the wealth of wildlife along the river could leave you just as breathless. Either way, time on the water is sure to leave a lasting impression. Check with our Front Desk team or Concierge staff to secure reservations and directions.
