All of which you have the option to pick or choose. You will also have the opportunity of stretching and doing some core work along with the peaceful meditation of Yoga while resting in the the exceptional natural beauty of this Colorado River Canyon. Each morning, we invite you to relax and breathe in the cool fresh air while reflecting upon the steep canyon walls and wildness surrounding us. We invite you to leave all your worries and your busy lifestyle behind and return to a more natural way of life for a few days as we journey down the Colorado River. This section of the Colorado River in Utah offers stunning wilderness views of red canyon walls, black schist formation and red rock vistas.

One of the advantages of a river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary. It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, Mother Nature, and courtesy for other groups on the river. The typical itineraries below illustrate a 3-day and a 2-day trip through Westwater Canyon on the Colorado River.
SAMPLE 4-DAY ITINERARY
Day 1-2: Meet at our headquarters (8:00 a.m., Mountain Time), we will issue your waterproof bags. You can buy any last minute items from our accessories store at this time (see our packing checklist for a list of items you can find at our store). We will then jump in the vans for a two-hour ride to the put-in at Loma. You'll spend two days floating leisurely through the desert scenery of Ruby Canyon. For those interested, inflatable kayaks or stand up paddle boards provide the opportunity to experience the river on a solo basis. A side hike up Rattlesnake Canyon reveals a variety of desert plants and wildlife. Camp at Black Rocks where thousand year old black schist provides the background setting. Plan on time for relaxing, doing some yoga and enjoying conversation with your new river friends.
Day 3: Peaceful floating and more time in the inflatable kayaks and on SUPs before reaching Westwater Ranger Station. The river enters the narrow canyons that give Westwater the nickname, “the Little Grand”. Small rapids begin to materialize along the otherwise peaceful stretches of the Colorado. Camp at one of the many beaches within Westwater Canyon. More Yoga is on tap for this evening and in the morning.
Day 4: After a sun salutation, we'll put the IK's and SUPs away and gear up for the Class IV rapids–one right after another–Hunter’s, Funnel Falls, Surprise and the big-names: Skull and Sock-it-to-me. Observe bald eagle, great blue heron and snowy egret habitats in the meandering flat-water below. Enjoy a short trip back to Green River. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
