White Water Rafting Coming Soon

Spring is taking it's time showing up in Wyoming this year, but our thoughts are beginning to drift towards the rivers and spring run off. We are anticipating a big run off this spring, from the heavy snow winter that continues into April. Now is time to make your water adventure plans for summer rafting trips. There's no memory like a hair raising ride on world class rapids, or a scenic float through Grand Teton National Park. Here is a list of white water rafting companies in the area, compiled by Greater Yellowstone Resource Guide.

Wyoming River Trips is the only continually owned and operated company in the historic Cody Area running the Shoshone river. The Shoshone river is the main eastern drainage of Yellowstone National Park. It reads like a flowing history book with almost as many scenic vistas as the colorful people and cultures who explored it. This river was used as a trade route during the fur-trading era for the mountain men and Native Americans who entered the "Yellow Rock" country in pursuit of its abundance of wildlife. This pursuit of adventure continues today.
