Out on the river, here are a few of our favorite Colorado River rafting and boating adventures:

Some of our guests like to experience a wide range of activities, whereas others want a more immersive experience. For river rafting, there are several choices available:

  • Full Day: For a wilder adventure, Westwater Canyon is a bit further upriver, offering a full day of exploration, or there is Cataract Canyon to the south within Canyonlands National Park.

 

  • Longer Tours: Trips ranging from overnight to several days include starry nights, gourmet meals, and allow you to explore more remote sections like Desolation Canyon along the Green River.

 

Whatever you pick, it will be the experience of a lifetime!

All of our Colorado River adventures include the safety equipment and other essentials, but here are a few suggestions to bring on your adventure to assure your comfort:

  • Shorts or a bathing suit with a “quick-dry” fabric;

 

  • One shirt that is a synthetic material is recommended for sun protection and cooler mornings or evenings (cotton fabrics are typically not a great choice)

 

  • You’ll need good footwear, not flip-flops but either sandals with straps, sneakers, or even wetsuit boots, and a few changes of socks.

 

  • A breathable hat (woven) with a brim to protect face from sun.

 

  • Sunglasses with a strap.
