Westwater Canyon Rafting Trip

Trip Overview

The Westwater Canyon whitewater river rafting trip takes you down a segment of the Colorado River that is magnificent and often referred to as a miniature Grand Canyon. The beauty and grandeur of this section on the Colorado River offer memorable sights such as pristine beaches, charming side canyons, and beautiful campsites. Colorado River rafting doesn't get much better than this!

The Colorado River Rafting trip in Westwater Canyon cuts its teeth through black-rock canyons in Southern Utah, due North East of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. On a three-day trip, you start in rural Colorado at the Loma boat ramp; while on the two-day you start across the border in Utah from a remote ranger station. Both lead you to a take-out near the wild-west ghost town of Cisco.

These trips are a great idea for those who want the beauty and thrills of a traditional Colorado River rafting vacation, yet only have a few days open for their river rafting tour. Westwater Canyon rafting trips are the ultimate two or three-day getaway that will also have you home in time for work Monday! Get this trip on your calendar today.
