Moab’s Fisher Towers trip is the perfect beginner rafting trip. Are you new to rafting but want to give it a try? Or do you have young children you’d like to gently introduce to the magic of running rivers? Just minutes from downtown Moab, Utah, Holiday’s Fisher Towers trip lets you get your feet wet. Experience the drama and scenery of Utah’s classic red rock landscape. Float the infamous Colorado River through mild, yet fun, rapids. Spend just one night sleeping in a tent or under the stars, and be back to civilization before you can even start to miss it.
Rugged, red sandstone walls ring the Colorado River as it flows through an open valley at the foot of the La Sal Mountains. The mountains are 12,000 feet tall, and often have snowy peaks well into July. The contrast of green, white, and red against blue sky is spectacular. Watch for bald eagles, great blue herons, geese, and red-tailed hawks. The landscape is mesmerizing, and so is the river. There’s plenty of flat water perfect for swimming and playing with stand-up paddleboards and inflatable kayaks. Youth groups can request paddle boats for team-building fun. Or, choose to simply relax on one of our oar-rafts and just go with the flow. There are also plenty of Class I and II rapids and riffles to keep things splashy. Beginner rafting trips don’t get easier than the Fisher Towers!
