Whitewater rafting trips through Lodore Canyon are filled with excitement and beautiful scenery. We will encounter 800 foot canyon walls superbly crafted by Mother Nature of Precambrian Bedrock along with exquisite vermilion rock formations. Many of its exciting whitewater rapids were named by John Wesley Powell, who first discovered the canyon in 1869. Powell’s adventures live on in the rapids he named: Disaster Falls, Triplet Falls and Hell’s Half Mile. Set aside as an American treasure in 1938 under the National Park System, Lodore Canyon is a sanctuary for bighorn sheep, deer and elk.

We just got back last night from the trip, it was awesome! We went on the Ladore canyon 4-day trip which was perfect, maybe one more day would have been better though. A 3 day trip would have been too short though! I am SO glad we went. We went rafting with a group of friends, 3 couples in total. There were 5 other guests on our trip and we got to know all of them well which made the trip so much more enjoyable.

The steep narrow deep red canyons were much more majestic than I was expecting. There was lots of wildlife (sheep, squirrels, frogs, rabbits, ducks, geese, fish, and deer). The guides were awesome - especially the leader Zach. He was very knowledgeable of the canyon and the history which was fascinating to learn about. The food made my wife and everyone else that went with us just rave about it the whole time. Who would think you would be having a great Italian pasta, Mexican fajitas, or steak and salmon on the river! It was a relaxing yet thrilling trip. They have these little kayaks you can go out of the main raft on your own or with some friends to catch some rapids and paddle around. The rapids were really fun but the time on land was just as great. We went on a hike to a waterfall and some native american pictographs while also seeing some pre-historic sea fossils. They let us go on a hike alone while they were making dinner so we could do some exploring with just our small group of six. Overall it was a very worthwhile trip and I would highly recommend it, this is a top-notch company and they have been on the river long enough to know what they are doing.

The raft trip was planned as a key part of our visit to America. It lived up to all our expectations, satisfied our needs and that of our 2 teenage children. I would highly recommend the trip. Pass on our thanks to David and his team, they looked after us very well.
