Scenic Float and Wildlife Tour

Make the most of your time in Jackson Hole with a scenic float on the Snake River and a wildlife tour in the Tetons. This adventure either starts with our Grand Teton Sunrise Tour or ends with our Grand Teton Sunset Tour. Both the sunrise and sunset tours offer excellent opportunities to view wildlife, and our knowledgeable guides will bring you to the best places to observe elk, moose, grizzly bears, big horn sheep, bison, mule deer, foxes, eagles and a variety of other animals.

You will spend the other part of the day relaxing on the Snake River with Barker-Ewing Scenic Float Trips. This 10-mile scenic float trip takes you through the heart of Grand Teton National Park. Your river guide will navigate the pristine waters as you take in the beauty of the river and incredible views of the Tetons. As you float, you might see moose, beavers, eagles, osprey and other birds.

We can schedule the float trip and wildlife tour on different days if you choose. Combination tour is for public tours only. Must call separately to book a private tour.
