Short Description: 4 or 5-day rafting on the Green River

Long Description: A scenic flight over the river corridor lands on a spectacular desert plateau. Choose a beautiful hike or take a bus ride to the river's edge. Launch onto a calm stretch of the Green, perfect for swimming and relaxing. Before your first gourmet camp dinner, explore, play a game, or just relax and soak in the soothing beauty of Desolation Canyon.

After a restful night under the stars, awaken to a hearty breakfast. Enjoy a calm and peaceful morning on the river. Hike a short distance to 1000-year-old Freemont Indian petroglyphs. Savor a delicious riverside buffet lunch. Then, climb aboard your rowboat and let your guide take the oars through several exciting rapids, or you and a partner may choose to paddle your own inflatable kayak.

This morning, hike to an old homestead rich in folklore and outlaw history. Wire Fence and Three Fords rapids, among the biggest whitewater on the Green, are run this afternoon. Float out of Desolation Canyon, and enter scenic Gray Canyon, traversing 40 million years of geologic history in the blink of an eye.

Several rapids interspersed with calm stretches for swimming and an occasional water fight provide fun and excitement all morning. Today's lunch spot is a huge sandy beach, where you'll celebrate your successful journey, before returning home or continuing your vacation at Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge.

Later in the season, the trip extends to a fifth day, as the water slows its pace.

JUNE 4-DAY PADDLE OPTION Early in the season, we bring along paddleboats. If you're looking for the challenge of paddling your own craft, these smaller paddleboats provide fun and excitement for everyone. If you wish to relax, stretch out on a rowboat and let the guide do the work. All trips include inflatable kayaks.


Testimonials: Our guides were courteous, helpful, well-groomed, extremely knowledgeable, and above all else it was obvious that they hold a passion for, and respect for the river, and truly love what they are doing. Never once did I feel that they were just 'doing their job.'
Penny Conner - Newport Beach, CA

They were knowledgeable about the region, great boatmen, incredible cooks, caring guides, and memorable entertainers.
Karin Appelbaum - Ft. Meyers, FL

These young people displayed kindness, patience, knowledge, manners, enthusiasm, and determination. They made everyone young or old, feel good. They were always ready to share their knowledge, always seemed interested in each person's life story and ready to assist the older ones┐
Dominique Legeai - N. Barrington, IL

Your guides are enthusiastic, well-educated about the region, extraordinarily hard working, unfailingly kind and helpful, and creative and funny. As someone who works in the customer service business, I appreciate how rare those qualities are. Western River is very lucky to have people like them. Every detail was expertly managed, but even more impressive, it was managed with respect for the environment and a focus on safety that was particularly reassuring.
Eve Hutcherson - Nashville, TN

From the moment I first met your team, I was greeted with a smile, taken care of with great attention to detail, given thorough explanations about procedure and safety, and then told fascinating tales about the river and its magical history. Their generosity and good spirit made all of us feel that we'd made real friends with whom we could be ourselves - in comfort and ease.The trip was filled with laughter, singing, fabulous food, fun games and first class service from beginning to end. These are memories that are truly priceless and will never be forgotten.
Lainie Sorkin - Beverly Hills - CA

Our guides were so aware of everyone's safety at all times that we were able to ride the wild rapids and hike narrow trails confidently.
Marnie Meyer - Paradise Valley, AZ

Those on your reservations staff with whom we talked and corresponded were fully cooperative and helpful and answered all our questions promptly and accurately.
James Henry - New York, NY

This trip was my second trip and just slightly better than my first which was perfect!
Vincent Allen - Lubbock, TX

What an experience!! We've been a few places and done a few things but this must be placed at the top of the list of the most awe inspiring, rush-inducing, near religious experience yet!
Steve and Pat Sessions - Lakeside, CA

The scenery was breathtaking, the food was simply delicious, the hikes were unbelievable, the rapids were quite hysterical, and the camps were pitched in postcard-perfect settings.
Steve and Jesse Sampson - Brookings, SD
