In Canyonlands National Park, there’s a rugged beauty to the natural surroundings unlike anywhere else in the country, where the reddish brown rocks and enveloping silence create an isolated amphitheater of calm.

On this 100-mile (160-km) full-day journey experience unforgettable scenery from the seat of a motorized raft. Able to handle both whitewater and flat water, this raft is the perfect method of transport for rafting in Canyonlands National Park.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
For a Canyonlands adventure you’ll never forget, raft the rapids of the Colorado River on an RHIB, or rigid hull inflatable boat, which can not only motor through the calm sections of river and offer a scenic cruise, but can handle rapids that swell to Class V during early summer snow melts. Hold on tight as you splash through rapids with names like Big Drop and Hell-to-Pay, and even during fall when the river isn’t as high; the whitewater sections are still wild enough for a thrilling, heart-pounding journey. 

On the calmer sections of river you can swim or relax on the riverbank, and, if you choose to spend a night on the river, hike to waterfalls up hidden canyons to continue your Utah adventure. Throughout the journey your guide will both keep you safe and provide details on the park, from the wildlife, geology, landscape and history of the canyons to the rocks all around you.

This was our first time of whitewater rafting, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We went during the high water season due to the large snow fall this past winter, and it was wet and wild. Our guide was Glenn who was very informative. Highly recommend!!
