This is by far one of our most popular tours and combines two of the most popular summer activities in Jackson Hole. With this package you get to ride “big red” (the tram) and then get to raft down the famous Snake River. Take your rafting trip at the scheduled time, then do the tram at your leisure sometime during the week. For the river portion of the trip, you have the option to take a whitewater rafting trip or a scenic Snake River float trip.
Option 1: Whitewater Rafting Jackson Hole on the Snake River
Whitewater Rafting on the Snake River in Jackson Hole Wyoming is on many people’s bucket list. It provides a thrilling whitewater ride through its various rapids, including Kahuna and The Lunch Counter. These whitewater rapids will get you wet, so be prepared for the ride of a lifetime.
Option 2: Scenic Rafting Trip on the Snake River
For those who wish to take it easy, we suggest taking the 7-mile Grand Teton float trip in the Grand Teton National Park. This scenic rafting trip provides you with a continental breakfast prior to pushing off. There are various stretches of the Snake River we guarantee you will want to photograph – keep that camera ready. This scenic float trip drifts past the majestic Grand Teton where bald eagles can often be seen soaring high.
Big Red – The Jackson Hole Tram
The Tram offers a fun 15 minute ride to the top of Rendezvous Peak. On the way up, be sure to keep a close eye out for wildlife. You will sometimes see moose and deer, and if you are really lucky, the occasional bear. If you spot something, be sure to let the tram driver know as he will slow the tram speed down a little so you can get a better look.
The views are absolutely breathtaking from the top. View the Grand Teton or check out the Snake River as it meanders through the valley floor. Here’s a fun challenge for you – try and find where the airport is located. Feel free to wander around or even have a waffle in the famous Corbet’s Cabin.
From the top you have two options. First you can ride the tram back down with the Tram leaving the top every 15 minutes. Secondly you can hike down on one of the several trails that lead back to the base of Teton Village. Along the way, you can experience all kinds of wildlife, native flowers and plants as you descend 4100 vertical feet back onto the valley floor.
