4 Best Utah River Rafting Day Trips


  1. I have been thinking about getting a group together and doing river rafting excursions. It would be great for some awesome memories while in the Moab area. I think it is cool, even if the claims are dubious that Moab is the birthplace of river rafting in Utah.

    What is the closest place to Kanab or Tropic Ut, Sale Lake City? Short trip and would like to be on Colorado River but not opposed to Green River

      You could look into the motor tours below Glen Canyon Dam for a nice day trip with a lot of history but not much whitewater. Otherwise your next closest option would be the class III daily section of the Colorado near Moab, or the class IV Westwater section of the Colorado upstream. If you are up for a multi day, the the San Juan or desolation canyon on the green could be great mellow whitewater trips for you. Hope this helps!

  3. I like how you mentioned that it is important to have clear and cold water for better visibility. My sister mentioned to me last night that she is planning to have a vacation in summer and asked if I have any idea what is the best option to do as she also wants to try rafting. Thanks to this informative article and I’ll be sure to tell her that we can consult a well-known white water river rafting trip in town as they can answer all our inquiries
