Rafting Desolation Canyon
A spectacular scenic flight from Moab, Utah lands you atop a dramatic desert plateau where you'll begin rafting Desolation Canyon on the Green River. You'll surrender your senses to nature as you're enveloped by 40 million years of geologic history. Winding through a remarkable wilderness of twisted mountains, dramatic cliffs, and towering plateaus carved by an ancient inland sea, Utah's hidden Desolation Canyon rafting trip is a magnificent journey for the ages.
Explore Utah's famous outlaw hideouts, ancient dinosaur habitats, and Fremont Native American petroglyphs. More moderate rapids on this section of the Green River allow you to experience paddling a 2-person inflatable kayak or relax in an oar boat while Western's guides take you down river. Comfortable summer water temperatures and over 60 fun-filled rapids make this Desolation Canyon rafting trip the ideal getaway for your next adventure.
Why Choose Desolation Canyon Rafting?
Desolation Canyon rafting is ideal for families with younger kids (ages 5+). We see parents and grandparents with their kiddos enjoying milder rapids and camping on broad beaches (especially later in the season). Spectacular canyon scenery surrounds five days of uninterrupted time spent with the ones you love the most. Rafting Desolation Canyon on the Green River is a natural for family bonding time.
