If you're picturing a classic whitewater rafting trip in the Rocky Mountains, this 8 mile (13-km) journey down the Snake River in Wyoming is it. Traverse about eight sets of Class I, II, and III rapids as you make your way through Snake River Canyon, aka the Grand Canyon, with a rafting guide.

If you're looking for a ride on the Snake River where you can focus on the scenery, then don't miss this leisurely river float with a guide to pilot the boat for you. Meet-up in Jackson before heading to the river where you can float, and learn about the region's geology from your guide. Upgrade with an optional lunch, or just enjoy views of the Grand Tetons as you cruise.

We did the low impact white water rafting. It was not much exertion but was incredibly fun with a great raft guide. We had a lot of fun. I can see how this ride would be perfect for families with kids

Yes. A brown bag with a nice sandwich, drink, chip and a cookie is included. You eat on the raft. Nothing fancy but sufficient
