Information About Our River Trips

Get ready for your adventure!

What to wear?

That depends on the type of river trip – scenic or whitewater. Be sure to bring layers with you as each season on the Snake River can be different. Sunglasses and hats are a must.

Whitewater:

  • Bathing suit or quick drying shorts and a t-shirt
  • Water shoes or sneakers – NO flip flops or crocs

Scenic Trips:
Whatever you’re comfortable in! Wear layers in the morning as it tends to be chilly.

What to bring?

Lunch is not included (except on our Private Floats) and we encourage you to bring your water bottle as we are trying to do our part and not give out plastic water bottles.

We will provide life jackets and splash jackets. Wetsuits and booties are available for rent

Whitewater:
Bring whatever you’d like (change of clothes, snacks & water, towels, etc.) and USE YOUR BUS SEAT AS A LOCKER! Your bus driver will stay with the bus the whole time you’re on the river.

Scenic:
Bring your camera on this part of the river! We usually see lots of wildlife like bald eagles and hopefully some big game.

Wildlife We See On Our Rafting Trips

Bald Eagle

Bald eagles are probably the most visible of the wildlife you will see while on the Snake River in Jackson in the Summer and Fall. Because they feed off of fish, you will spot them in the trees or circling around looking for food.

Osprey

The Osprey is a large raptor, reaching more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across the wings. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly greyish on the head and underparts. Nests are located easily by their grandeur in size located atop telephone poles or high up in trees.

Moose

Moose are often located along the Snake River to cool down and graze on foliage. They can be very aggressive especially if accompanied by offspring. Fortunately with Teton Expeditions you will be a safe distance and the binoculars that we provide will give you a close up look without having to in any danger.

Fox

Keep a sharp eye for foxes at play. They are not very big but when you see them you will surely smile. They are very playful and elusive. Their hunting techniques are thrilling to watch as they pounce on their prey!

Elk

The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem elk herd numbers over 200,000 individuals and during the spring and fall, they take part in the longest elk migration in the continental U.S. Elk in the southern regions of Yellowstone National Park and in the surrounding National Forests migrate south towards the town of Jackson, Wyoming where they winter for up to six months on the National Elk Refuge. Conservationists there ensure the herd is well fed during the harsh winters. Many of the elk that reside in the northern sections of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem migrate to lower altitudes in Montana, mainly to the north and west.

Marmot

Marmots are large ground squirrels in the genus Marmota, with 15 species living in Asia, Europe, and North America. You can view these on the banks of the Snake River! These herbivores are active during the summer, when they can often be found in groups, but are not seen during the winter, when they hibernate underground. They are the heaviest members of the squirrel family.
