A Rafting Trip Through Desolation Canyon is the West's Top Family Vacation
By: Western River Expeditions
This is the staunch opinion of both veteran river guides and the thousands of satisfied families who have experienced the joys of family bonding and the endless wonders of nature surrounding this legendary canyon.
This is the Green River in Utah's Desolation Canyon, one of the most remote (no roads, no towns, no cell service) destinations in the continental United States. In its journey south, the Green has created such an unforgettable universe that Desolation Canyon has been included on the National Registry of Historic Places.
Katy, a teen from Virginia had this to say, "I am a 15-year-old girl and I had doubts about doing a rafting trip for five days in the middle of nowhere without the comforts of home. I came out of the trip crying because I had the most fun of my life!"
For over 60 years Western River Expeditions has specialized as Nature's handmaiden, providing the staff and environment and, yes, the rivers, where transformations occur. Again, this season, Western River Expeditions will host 5-day Rafting Trips through Desolation Canyon (https://www.westernriver.com/
The 2022 trips are scheduled to begin in June and continue through August. The adventures begin and end in Moab, Utah. Guests will experience a trip highlight on Day 1 where a morning flight over the canyons of the Green River lands guests atop a desert plateau.
Loading into the river rafts on Day 2 offers a rare opportunity in today's world to have families sharing adventures and making memories in such close proximity over an extended period of time. This day marks the beginning of an 88-mile expedition over the next four days through Desolation Canyon. While paddling on the Green, guests surrender their senses to twisted mountains, dramatic cliffs and towering plateaus carved by an ancient inland sea.
The sense of fun takes over while splashing through rapids, swimming near the shoreline in sun-kissed water averaging a comfortable 70 degrees F, hiking off river into Native American and Wild West lore (Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch found that the rugged terrain here offered a perfect hideaway) that is laced with the persistent remains of dinosaurs.
Rates from $1,932 (adults 16+) and $1,185 (youth ages 5-15)
