Utah's World Famous Moab River Rafting »
With Moab, Utah as your hub, a surprisingly wide variety of white water rafting possibilities present themselves.
First Time Intro to Utah Rafting & Package Samplers
If you are looking for an introduction to whitewater rafting, the half-day and full-day options on the Colorado River, often referred to as the "Fisher Towers" section, or "Castle Valley" are excellent choices. You can even include an overnight rafting experience on this section of river with our "Southwest Sampler" vacation package- which serves as a great introduction to camping for one of the three nights.
The Perfect Family Rafting Trip
The 5-day Desolation Canyon trip on the Green River is also an excellent introduction to white water rafting. Green River Utah white water rafting is especially popular among families with younger children and teens. The journey begins with a scenic flight over the remote cliffs of eastern Utah, and then spend the next five days floating back toward Moab where more play awaits.
Rafting Through Canyonlands National Park
Perhaps the most popular of all of Moab raft trips is the 4-day Cataract Canyon Classic. One-hundred miles of Colorado River through Canyonlands National Park - with time to explore petroglyphs, stunning scenery, and some of North America's wildest rapids this trip is becoming more well known every year. This is the very best white water rafting in Utah's National Parks. Your visit to Moab can easily include a visit to nearby Arches National Park.
Shorter But Thrilling Trips
The 2-Day Cataract Express trip offers an overnight camping experience to 100 miles of Colorado River through Canyonlands National Park.
If you are pressed for time, but want a great Utah white water rafting thrill, the Westwater Canyon one-day trip is one of the West's best whitewater romps.
