Book Your Scenic Float Trip in Grand Teton National Park
When you’re looking for things to do in Jackson Hole, your first stop should be Barker-Ewing Scenic Float Trips. Book a raft trip with us, and you’ll be rafting with Jackson Hole’s best!
Our original 10-mile Snake River Scenic Float Trips operate wholly within Grand Teton National Park. Wild nature surrounds you on these river rafting trips. You’ll float beneath the Grand Tetons in an area untouched by human development for generations. And Barker-Ewing’s experienced river guides will share fascinating information on:
- The unique history of Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole
- The geology and ecology of the pristine Snake River environment
- The abundant wildlife in our valley and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem
The Snake River headwaters are a part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers system. Barker-Ewing is honored to be rafting the only stretch of the Snake River in Jackson Hole to be officially designated as “scenic”.
