Jackson Hole Whitewater has a, best of both worlds, fun filled combination trip that includes a whitewater trip down the 8-mile stretch of the Snake River Canyon and a scenic float on the upper section of the Snake River. The 8:45 AM is our most popular trips! This does come with lunch on the river. Don’t forget to bring your camera! This first part of the trip is filled with wonderful Grand Teton views and hopefully some big game. You will not be getting wet on this trip. Bald eagles are ever present on this stretch, as 4 to 5 families call this stretch home. Dress in layers, it’s usually pretty nice on the river, but it is the mountains and we can have an occasional storm pop up.
After floating through 13 miles of some of the most beautiful scenery in Jackson Hole, you will be treated to some of the wildest whitewater in Wyoming. The same vehicle that takes you to the river after lunch brings you back to the boathouse. We do this for a reason! You can put on some shorts, sunscreen lock things in your car and use the bathrooms.
The second part of the combo is the whitewater trip on the lower part of the Snake River, known as the canyon of the Snake River. On this section you will get wet! This is a class lll river (from l-Vl), with 8-10 sets of some real fun rapids. After every section of whitewater you go through there is a calm section following. This is a very wide and deep river! Great for jumping in for a quick swim! Some sections are up to 80 feet deep. This is a good thing as the shallower rivers can be very technical and rated in the upper V’s. This is a great family river! Also, a great river for all ages who want some big waves.
