An Introduction to Our Multi-Day Raft Trips

Multi-day raft trips are a great way to truly experience the outdoors, unplug from the world, and spend quality time with friends and family. Beginning Spring 2018 Mild to Wild is offering a variety of legendary multi-day raft trips that will give you a well-rounded adventure. These trips include Desolation Canyon of the Green River, Gates of Lodore of the Green River, the Yampa River and Cataract Canyon of the Colorado River. Read on to learn why you need to try these awesome trips and the experience each one provides.

Desolation Canyon

Located on Utah’s Green River, you will find the ideal family multi-day raft trip through Desolation Canyon. In this 2,000-foot gorge, you will conquer more than 60 class II and III rapids. Aside from the river time, there will be chances to explore the sandy beaches, ancient rock art, and wild west hideouts. So hop on this trip to enjoy time out in nature with the whole family. Desolation Canyon is located in central Utah and is accessed from our office in Moab, UT

Gates of Lodore

Experience intense adventure as you paddle through the Gates of Lodore on the Green River. You will discover ancient history along this part of the river as you see petroglyphs and ruins around every bend. This is another great opportunity to create unforgettable memories with family and friends as you take on the rapids deep within Dinosaur National Monument. This trip is best suited for the history buffs and those interested in learning more about the natural world. With seemingly endless petroglyphs, side hikes, wildlife, & rock structures this trip has a multitude of adventure. The Gates of Lodore is in Northern Colorado and is accessed from Vernal, UT.


The Yampa River

The Yampa travels through two states, Colorado and Utah, where it meets the confluence with the Green River. The landscapes that will follow you throughout this river are breathtaking and serene. Your gaze will be stuck on the massive sandstone walls striped with character. As the last free-flowing river in the Colorado River system, taking a trip down this river may be the best way to understand the purity of wild rivers. No photographs will do this place justice so you’ll need to get out there and experience it first-hand! Like the Gates of Lodore, the Yampa is located in Northern Colorado and is accessed from Vernal, UT
