Jackson Hole Activities

The snow is melting off the mountain peaks and the summer is starting to heat up here in Jackson Hole! There are plenty of ways to stay cool this summer. Here are a few ways to have some cool summer fun - both in and on the water!

Kayaking/Paddle Sports

Rendezvous River Sports is the one-stop-shop for anything related to paddle sports. If you’re experienced and just need a rental, they have a full range of kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards and all the gear you need to find adventure. If you’ve never experienced the fun or thrill of this type of water sport, reserve a spot in the Rendezvous River Sports kayak school, with a choice of river or lake lessons. They’ve been around for over 20 years and have a great staff of experienced, qualified instructors.


Whitewater rafting is one of the most popular experiences of the summer. People are drawn to the excitement, thrills and beautiful scenery along the river. From slow floating down the river on gentle rapids to bracing for roaring rapids, there are whitewater rafting packages perfect for all ages and abilities. Jackson Hole has plenty of experienced companies to choose from; Dave Hansens Whitewater and Scenic River Trips, Barker Ewing Whitewater, Teton Expeditions Scenic Float Trips, and many more.


Viewing the majestic scenery as you drive through Grand Teton National Park is special, but it’s even more spectacular from the water! Sit back, relax and let Jackson Lake Boat Cruises take you across the water. Trips include a spin around the lake or enjoy a breakfast, lunch or dinner cruise, and dock at a private island to breathe in nature while you eat.  You can also find marinas in the area that rent boats and canoes if you are itching to cast a line.


So take your choice of how you want to play on the water. There’s something for everyone in Jackson Hole!
