Day 1: Choose Your Thrill!

Kick off your vacation with a splash! Opt for an exhilarating white-water rafting trip or a peaceful scenic float down the Snake River. Immerse yourself in the stunning scenery as you navigate the calm or conquer the rapids.

Days 2 & 3: Hike and Explore

Dedicate two days to exploring the park’s breathtaking beauty. Lace up your hiking boots and conquer challenging trails, or choose a scenic route for a more relaxed experience. Be captivated by the majestic Teton Range and soak in the fresh mountain air.

Day 4: Recharge and Refuel

After days of adventure, a day of rest is essential. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or spa treatment, or relax with a good book. Recharge your batteries before diving into more exciting activities.

Days 5 & 6: Discover Your Passions

With the remaining days, personalize your getaway! Do you crave an adrenaline rush? Take on the thrilling terrain on an ATV adventure.  Are you yearning for a peaceful connection with nature? Glide through the water on a horseback riding tour or a canoeing/kayaking trip. Foodies can embark on a delicious food and wine tour, while anglers can try their luck on a fishing expedition.

Tip – Focus on What Matters

In five days, you will only experience some things. Prioritize your top 5-6 activities to maximize your enjoyment. This approach ensures you create lasting memories by focusing on experiences that ignite your passions. If you have yet to have five days, pick out what’s best or most important to you and your family and work your way down that list. Don’t save the best for last in case you run out of time! Whitewater rafting and river floats are wildly popular, for instance, so book ahead of time and make sure you get a trip going!
