Dusty trails and snake river float…

Super Small Boats
Whitewater Adventure

Start your morning from the back of a horse and view the majestic Gros Ventre Wilderness and breathtaking views of the Teton Mountain Range. While taking in the serenity of the famous Snake River and numerous wildflowers keep your eyes open for various wildlife in their natural habitat. Horses are well mannered, strong, and mountain wise.

Following your ride, enjoy a peaceful float down the Snake River with us. Not to worry - your guide does all the work. Simply relax and take in the beautiful scenery and wildlife views all around you. The Grand Tetons are the backdrop for your departure, so cameras and binoculars are welcome on all trips. This trip includes a deli box lunch served on the river while you float. Lunches are provided by a local restaurant here in Jackson Hole so notify us in advance of any food allergies.

The magnificent Teton Range sets the stage for our 13 mile Scenic Float trips. This trip starts west of the town of Jackson and winds its way south through braided river channels and sand bars. This 13-mile stretch is home to an array of natural wonders unlike anywhere else on earth and the opportunity to view them all in one place is extremely rare. This trip comes with a free lunch served on the river.

This trip launches from the Wilson Bridge Boat Ramp. Our experienced and knowledgeable guides will navigate you through this pristine landscape, sharing the history, geology, and wildlife of the region. Due to calm waters, cameras and binoculars are generally fine for this stretch of river. You may see beaver, cutthroat trout, cliff swallows, osprey and bald eagles on your trip. A lucky few may even catch a glimpse of a mule deer, moose, elk or even a grizzly or black bear.


This trip requires check-in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled ride. The check-in location is at AOK Corral, located approximately 15 miles south of the town of Jackson. Following your trail ride, you will be required to check-in at the Mad River Boathouse 30 minutes prior to launch time. The check-in location is at Mad River, located at 1255 S HWY 89, just 2 miles south of town. Transportation from the Mad River Boat House to the river and back is provided on every Mad River trip.


This trip features our full-sized AIRE inflatable, self-bailing, 18'3" raft. It seats 16 people but we average 8 to 10 guests per boat. All positions in this raft are non-paddling positions. Just relax and take in the beauty of Jackson Hole.

Pair your horseback ride with a scenic float. What kind of horses like to go out after dusk? Nightmares.

Where is Mad River?

Mad River Boat Trips is located in the beautiful Jackson Hole Valley in northwestern Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.

The Snake River begins its journey in the rugged backcountry of Yellowstone National Park and gathers water as it heads south toward Jackson Hole through Grand Teton National Park. The river exits the south end of Jackson Hole through the winding Snake River Canyon, lined with trees and steep granite walls, small alpine meadows and abundant wildlife. It’s on this section of the Snake that you’ll experience some of the wildest whitewater in the Rocky Mountains.
