Desolation Canyon Rafting
Located deep within the astounding Tavaputs Plateau, Desolation Canyon meanders through one of the most remote areas in the contiguous United States. So remote in fact, that your journey begins with a scenic flight into the canyon.
Drifting farther into this highly protected wilderness area, the walls steepen up to 4,000 feet— deeper than the Grand Canyon at times. Beneath the looming scenery, long sandy beaches line the way, scattered with giant cottonwood trees and footprints of bears and wild horses. Many of these beaches will be your campsites, providing opportunities to hike to scenic overlooks, play, and unwind under the stars.
Desolation Canyon 4 day rafting trips make for long days on the river, but with some time to explore old homesteads or petroglyph sites. On the river you’ll splash through 60+ rapid sections that are perfect for those who want to kayak, or SUP for the extra-adventurous.
