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.

Scenic raft trip on the snake river
Very relaxing scenic trip. Saw over a dozen bald eagles-both adults and juveniles. Katie was a great guide, providing lots of information about the area along with piloting the raft.

13-Mile Scenic Raft Trip on Jackson Hole’s Snake River
Our tour guide, Austin, was great! Personable & knowledgeable, & literally had an eagle eye…He spotted over a dozen bald eagles for us! Roger was fun, & engaging, too! The boat was clean and the river was calm just like we’d hoped it would be. An enjoyable lazy river float!

13-Mile Scenic Raft Trip on Jackson Hole’s Snake River
Pleasant relaxing ride on the Snake River. This is a lovely ride for any age. We worked our way down the Snake with a group of 8 of us. Having a pleasant group is a plus! Our guide, Jacob, was enthusiastic and interacted with all the guests, making it a very enjoyable experience. You will not see a lot of wild life; however we saw multiple eagles as we made our way down the river. It is a totally relaxing couple of hours.

13-Mile Scenic Raft Trip on Jackson Hole’s Snake River
Beautiful view from Snake River and a peaceful float trip. We saw at least ten eagles. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and added just enough information without being annoying. It was quite hot so glad we had sunscreen on and took wide brim hats. Would definitely do again…Fall season would be gorgeous.

13-Mile Scenic Raft Trip on Jackson Hole’s Snake River
We saw 6 bald eagles. But we were disappointed not to see other wildlife. That was a little oversold.

Sam was very knowledgeable and it was a perfect morning. We saw a moose, bald eagles, and a herd of elk. The only downside was the smoky haze hanging over the Tetons from the wildfires in the West.

How to Get There

Though the largest portion of the Snake River is in Idaho, the river also runs through Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, and Washington, where it joins the Columbia River. It is most readily accessed from a number of US parks, including Yellowstone National Park and Hells Canyon National Recreation Area—roughly six hours from Portland. Other popular put-ins include Clarkston, Washington; Lewiston, Idaho; and Astoria, Oregon.

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.
