Moab, Utah is home to the most popular rafting trips in Utah - and The West. With so many other day-trip adventures, Western River created Moab Adventure Center to be the One Stop for Adventure in Moab. The Colorado River flows past Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, where we offer guided van tours with plenty of "get out and see" built into the itinerary. Of course there are morning, mid-day and full day rafting trips on the Colorado's "Daily Section" or a full-day whitewater romp down Westwater Canyon (named the west's best short whitewater trip by National Geographic Adventurer) or take longer multi-day trips just outside of Moab in Cataract Canyon and Canyonlands National Park, or the Green River through Desolation Canyon.
What else is there to do in Moab while you're here for your rafting trip? Let's see if we can list them all in one breath: Horseback Riding like old John Wayne, Stand-up Paddleboarding down the Colorado, or up the Colorado on a Splash & Spin Jetboat ride - or downstream into canyonlands on a speedy-but-peaceful Jetboat journey, or a Hot Air Balloon ride over spectacular red rock formations, or doing the same on a zip line course built into the stone fins and domes, or crawling over those domes in Hummers or Jeeps, or climbing or rapelling down the hidden canyons on a Canyoneering adventure... or, what did we miss? [breath] Dinosaur and rock museums? Mountain Biking? Did we mention that Moab is the Mountain Biking Mecca where the sport got popularized in the early 1980's? [breath] Ropes Courses? Hiking just about anywhere, or renting a Jeep for the day and going farther into the canyon country than you ever thought possible... Whew! And no matter where you go, it's all gorgeous - especially at sunrise and sunset! It's ALL breathtaking!
Cataract Canyon is a Southwest classic in the heart of Canyonlands National park. Hikes from the Colorado River to amazing views, petroglyphs, and waterfalls abound...and the rapids? Why do you think they call it "Cataract" Canyon? Return flight over Canyonlands is included!
