Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in central Moab to start the first portion of your combo adventure, a 4-hour tour of Canyonlands National Park by 4WD. Hop into the vehicle for a thrilling morning drive over rugged terrain to the Island in the Sky. From here, your guide traverses switchbacks to White Rim Road, a 100-mile (160-km) loop situated roughly 1,000 feet (300 meters) below the mesa and the same distance above the Colorado and Green rivers.  

Your guide follows a section of the White Rim Road where you're treated to a panoramic vista of Fossil Point before connecting to the Shafer Trail. Listen as your guide shares the human and natural history of Canyonlands, and stop for photo ops of ancient rock art en route to the mesa summit before refueling with a riverside buffet lunch.

Next, you'll descend the canyon to ride the white-water rapids of the Colorado River, including the Fisher Towers area that features soaring canyon walls, giant rock spires and plenty of wildlife. This 4-hour portion of your adventure begins with a safety briefing. Once you're outfitted with a life jacket, climb into an awaiting raft with a river guide who expertly navigates your raft over Class II and III rapids. 

Rest assured that sections of calm water follow, where you can relax, take photos (waterproof bag provided) or even swim if temperatures allow. After a fun-filled day off-roading and rafting in this spectacular wilderness, you are returned to Moab where your tour ends.

A Fun Day!
Angie

Myself and a friend part took in the day! We had a great time. The previous reviews noting a more "quiet" rafting ride were accurate. This area of the Colorado river was not very "active" during our visit. However, the guides still made sure the rafting guests had a nice time and were entertained and having fun during their trip. The 4x4 tour allowed you to access areas of Canyonlands with are truly only accessible with a off-road vehicle. Something which I was not willing to take my rental car out-for-a-spin for to figure out if it was truly off-road capable or not. I was very glad I booked this trip! It was a nice and relaxing day to break up a full weeks worth of hiking. If you prefer something more relaxing to spend more time conversing with family or friends, or having a drink on a slower pace rafting trip, this could be a great trip for you.

Highly recommend this tour. Blane drove our 4x4 & he was excellent with a great personality! Then lunch next to Colorado River, simple but good. Raft ride was beautiful & calm with a few rapids.

the person we had as a driver that was rude and found it funny that we were afraid of heights and continually made the turns more dangerous than needed. We were in a Suburban vehicle not what we thought based on the photos. If heights are an issue don't go. The river ride with Travis was nice but just a stroll down the river certainly no rapids. When making the food for lunch he didn't wear a mask during Covid so two of us did not eat. The boat had 11 in it and you sat on the edges of the raft. Would not recommend this. Sorry this is the first bad review I ever wrote but Mike made the trip miserable

This tour was a nice combination to give perspective to the vast and beautiful Canyonlands. The morning 4x4 tour was wonderful! Highly recommend this. It would be impossible to experience this without a guided tour. The afternoon raft trip was nice although on what was supposed to be a hot, sunny afternoon, we got rain! This is not the fault of the tour, however. No control over weather.

The 4x4 trip was awesome in itself, but our guide Josh made it amazing. He has a passion and knowledge about the area and history that made it an incredible trip. The rafting was ok, but with the water level that low, it was more of a float down river. Guide Eric was fun and entertaining during the trip.
