Upper San Juan River Rafting

About This Trip

A perfect starting place for any new river visitor; the upper San Juan wanders through astounding red rock landscapes and abruptly dives into the center of Comb Ridge the greater Monument Upwarp.  This trip takes you through exquisitely maintained ancestral puebloan sacred sites, where we can learn from ancestors embedded in stone.  Play in sand-waves and class I-II whitewater or get bogged down in the natural mud-baths; this river invites the child within!

SAN JUAN RIVER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Explore slickrock and prehistoric Indian ruins
  • Classic Southern Utah desert environment, warm water
  • Perfect rafting for children and inflatable kayaks
The first time I went down the San Juan was with a group of boatmen. It was hard to read the map because the scenery was so amazing . . . the water was moving so fast. It made us dizzy because our heads were busy snapping from one side of the river to the other to see the next scenic attraction.
