A scenic float trip offers a gentle way to float the Snake River. Drift along as your guide shares stories of the valley while you enjoy the view of the majestic Tetons, take pictures of a wide variety of wildlife, including moose and bald eagles, and bask in the stunning beauty of Jackson Hole.
Then, to satisfy your adventurous side get wet and wild on a whitewater float trip. Guided trips are the way to go if you’re new to river rafting, but for the more advanced river rat, you can rent your own boat if you like. Lunch counter rapids will be a thrilling highlight of your adrenalin pumping trip.
Renting a bike is a great way to explore the town of Jackson. However, if it’s vertical you’re looking for, there are many mountain bike trails to be explored. Check in with a local bike shop for trail maps and gear.

Bar J Chuck wagon:
Supper and a western show with the iconic Bar J Wranglers. Great family entertainment for the whole family. The meal is as close to what you would eat on an authentic cattle drive. This is a must see!
Take in the views of the valley while you ride the chair lift to the top of Snow King Mountain. Hiking trails abound at the top, or you can ride back down after enjoying panoramic views of the area. If you’re a hiker, ride to the top and hike down, or even more strenuous, hike to the top and ride down. A local favorite. Don’t forget to drink lots of water!
Test your golf skills on the slopes of Snow King Mountain. See who the real golfer in your family is.
Travel down the slopes of Snow King in a toboggan. You pick your own speed so you can race your friends to the bottom, or take a leisurely glide through the wild flowers. Fun for all ages!
