Went there for our anniversary and took the river trip. It was a memory that I will not soon forget. My wife and I were on a raft with another family and really enjoyed the adventure. The stop in the morning for the pancake breakfast after floating was really yummy. Just be prepared for the short walk up the hill... More

We took the morning float trip/breakfast/rapids excursion with Barker Ewing. It was a wonderful trip-peaceful float trip in the am followed by all you care to eat breakfast in the woods. The early afternoon was exciting rapids and beautiful weather. We saw bald eagles along the river. The scenery was beautiful along the river. We shared a raft with a... More

We love Whitewater rafting, but we thought we'd try an early morning float trip instead. Our goal was to see wildlife in their natural state. We mainly saw different birds. We really enjoyed our guide and other family on our float. It was beautiful and serene floating down the river on a beautiful morning taking in the picturesque scenery.

We were walking by the Barker-Ewing office in downtown Jackson Hole and decided to see if we could arrange a river raft trip the next day. The people couldn't have been nicer - and since we didn't have a rental car they offered to stop by the hotel and pick us up. The trip was terrific - a highlight of... More

This was one of our best experiences in JH. We had Tracy as a guide, just enough of conversation, information and quite at the right times. He turn the raft so that everyone had great views. Best place to see the Tetons. We would do it again.

Highly recommend this tour operator and white water rafting trip in JH. Our guide, Lindsay, was great. The rapids were fun, the water freezing, but that only added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. Well organized with friendly, helpful staff. Definitely rent the booties to keep your feet warm if it's late in the season; makes a huge difference.

We did a river tour with Andrew last week and it was awesome!!!! He was super - knew so much about the area, answered all of our questions, and I felt very safe with him. The tour was incredible. I'll also note that Jason (who drove us to the tour) was awesome as well, and the woman who put out... More

VERY fun trip and the weather was perfect. I expected to be sore from paddling the whole time, but this was a very relaxed trip. We would paddle for at most 30 seconds before being given a rest. Both children and grandparents easily paddled the river while our guide steered. At different times of the year there are different water... More

I highly recommend the thrill of this Whitewater Adventure. We had a beautiful day, sensational river conditions, and a perfect guide. We took the 8-person small raft adventure. We had four in our party including two young adults and two in their 60s. Three in our group were fearless and actually went for a swim - but we all were... More

Barker-Ewing operates a short fun filled Class 2-3 raft trip on the Snake River. I am not much of a white water rafter but the guides made me feel very secure. The trip took us through a beautiful canyon. There were many Class 2 rapids and a few Class 3. We had our 8 year old grandson with us and... More
