Snake River Region Wildlife
Of course the scenery along the Snake River, both on our scenic river float and our whitewater rafting adventure, is absolutely breathtaking. The wildlife you could potentially see along the way is even MORE exciting!
Nearly 500 animal species inhabit the Greater Yellowstone region. Areas along the Snake River are home to many of these animals, some endangered, and we try our best to admire these animals from afar, and help you understand and appreciate them as we do. The area surrounding the Snake River offers lush willows to feed on, deep-water pools to swim in and groves of aspen to wander, making it the perfect habitat for our beloved animals. Some of the animals you may see include Elk, Moose, North American River Otter, American Beaver, Coyote, Pronghorn, Deer, Coyote, Mountain Goat, and Marmots.
There are 300 different species of birds in this region, including Osprey and Eagles which you will likely see. Other birds in the region include the Great Blue Heron, Calliope Hummingbird, Great Gray Owl, Trumpeter Swan, and Peregrin Falcon. More than 100 species of butterfly inhabit in the region as well. There are also many different species of fish that inhabit the Snake River.
Although we obviously cannot guarantee that you will see these animals on your Snake River expedition, we are certain that our incredibly experienced and knowledgeable guides will point them out first thing when they are around. Happy sighting and raft on!
