Cataract Canyon Rafting
If you want to explore the most wild areas of Canyonlands National Park in a short amount of time, a Cataract Canyon 3 day rafting trip is the way to go. Keep in mind, this trip is motored to make the 96 mile journey in just 3 days.
The first part of this Colorado River trip will be spent relaxing on the boat (with motor assist) and taking in the colossal scenery of an ever-growing canyon. Along the way is a seldom-seen view of Dead Horse State Park, ancient ruins nestled in the cliffs, and one of most significant confluence in the American West— where the Green River meets the Colorado.
On day 2, you’ll strap in to your PFDs and helmets, and hold on tight through some of the biggest waves the Colorado River has to offer. Day 3 will serve up whitewater for breakfast (after real breakfast) followed by a calm cruise to Lake Powell for the journeys end.
Canyonlands is an International Dark Sky Park, offering some of the most spectacular views of the cosmos on Earth. Be prepared for very starry skies, delicious meals, and time to soak in the scenery of this beloved stretch of the Colorado River.
