Moab Combo: Colorado River Rafting and Canyonlands National Park

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Explore Canyonlands National Park by 4-wheel drive (4WD) and go white-water rafting on a guided, full-day combo tour that ventures from the Island in the Sky district to the Colorado River. Start by driving off-road through the spectacular scenery of Island in the Sky and portions of the White Rim Road and Shafer Trail. After a buffet lunch, hit the Colorado River for a fun afternoon of rafting the rapids. This is a great trip for all ages with a taste of everything: deep canyons, ancient rock art, fossils, natural stone arches and the mighty river.
  • See Canyonlands National Park two ways: by 4-wheel drive and river raft
  • Enjoy colorful commentary by knowledgeable guides
  • Admire jaw-dropping scenery in Island of the Sky and on the Colorado River
  • Full-day combo tour includes a buffet lunch and all required river gear
What to Expect
At a convenient Moab location, connect with your guide to head out on the first part of your combo trip: a 4-hour, 4WD adventure in Canyonlands National Park. Highlights of the craggy terrain include White Rim Road, with fabulous views of Fossil Point, as well as scenic Shafer Trail. Time for photos of ancient rock art is followed by lunch. Afternoon brings a descent into the canyon for a rafting adventure that includes the Fisher Towers area of the Colorado River. After being outfitted with a life preserver, your expert guide navigates you safely over Class II and Class III rapids, followed by the float portion of the trip. During this, you'll have the opportunity to take photos of the towering canyon walls and, warm weather permitting, perhaps even a swim. Keep your eyes open for river wildlife.  Your return transport to Moab completes your 4WD and river-rafting adventure.

You sit back and relax. There are several stops and it ends with a ride up the Shafer Trail in Canyonlands National Park.
