Colorado River Cataract Canyon Rafting Express 3 Day

Cataract Canyon offers 28 Grand Canyon style rapids. These are some of the most well known and respected whitewater rapids in the world; “Ben Hurt”, “Powell’s Pocket Watch”, “Capsize”, and the three spectacular rapids in the “Big Drop” series, the steepest section on the mighty Colorado river. Go on a 3-day/2-night white water rafting adventure where you’ll hit every one of the 28, Class III-V, white water rapids as you would on a longer trip. Expect some hiking and off river exploration. And don’t forget to look at the constellations. Star gazing is amazing on dark nights. If your goal is to hit the big white water without using all your vacation, the Express has your name on it!

Canyonlands Scenic Jet Boat Cruise 1 HOUR

We are now running these tours through Canyonlands by Night and Day. Please call them directly to book your tour at 435-259-5261. A delightful jet boat ride on a calm-water stretch of the Colorado River gives you a few hours in the wilderness without all the hassle and risks of true backcountry expedition. You’ll ride in comfortable seats in our sturdy river tours boat. These boats speed along about 20 miles an hour and stop frequently for photographs, sightseeing, and narration by your river tour guide. The guide drifts the boat quietly as you hear about all the fascinating geology, wildlife, and historic sites you’re seeing. Bring binoculars to spot bighorn sheep playing on the cliffs. What you’ll see is only accessible by boat ride! Less adventurous travelers will miss it all while you take this short Moab tour.

Horseshoe Canyon -- Part of the Great Gallery

Canyonlands National Park Horseshoe Canyon Hiking 1 Day

Horseshoe Canyon is in the outlands, an annex of Canyonlands National Park. On this trip you are the adventurer, you are walking in the footsteps of the ancient ones. You will visit one of the world’s finest, undisturbed rock art panels left by ancient Native American cultures. You’ll visit the Great Gallery rock art panel, famous for its “Holy Ghost” image and ponder the mystery of their disappearance as your guide helps you unravel their story. The hiking in the canyons will leave you feeling strong and confident and maybe a little unwilling to return to civilization. While the hiking is appropriate for people in relatively good condition, there are no technical climbs or skills required.
