Colorado River History

The stuff of legends, the Colorado River runs from its headwaters in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, continuing through the Grand Canyon into Arizona.Some of the best parts of this river cut deeply through Utah - beginning at Westwater Canyon and flowing on to the confluence of the Green River just aboveCataract Canyon, and continuing on through Canyonlands National Park emerging next through Lake Powell and continuing through the Grand Canyon. This river offers the walloping white water rafting experience you crave! Westwater Canyon offers Skull, Funnel Falls and Sock-It-To-Me Rapids for the most whitewater fun you can have in a short amount of time. Hell-To-Pay, Little Niagra and Satan's Gut are rapids on the Cataract Canyon Trip.

Wonderful side hikes on these rafting trips treat visitors to spectacular rock formations, hidden pools, waterfalls, Indian Ruins and pictographs. You may even see caves used as outlaw hideouts in the Wild West!

Rafting trips on the Colorado River are available for everything from one-day to week long in length and a variety of excitement levels to accommodate families with young children to those looking for bigger thrills. Utah's professional guides and outfitters will make sure you are treated to comfy sleeping quarters and terrific outdoor meals while you experience a safe, memorable Colorado River rafting adventure.
