What You Can Expect

Moab Combo: Colorado River Rafting and Canyonlands National Park

Enjoy some afternoon rafting at Fisher Towers

Meet your guide in central Moab to start the first portion of your combo adventure, a 4-hour tour of Canyonlands National Park by 4WD. Hop into the vehicle for a thrilling morning drive over rugged terrain to the Island in the Sky. From here, your guide traverses switchbacks to White Rim Road, a 100-mile (160-km) loop situated roughly 1,000 feet (300 meters) below the mesa and the same distance above the Colorado and Green rivers.  

Your guide follows a section of the White Rim Road where you're treated to a panoramic vista of Fossil Point before connecting to the Shafer Trail. Listen as your guide shares the human and natural history of Canyonlands, and stop for photo ops of ancient rock art en route to the mesa summit before refueling with a riverside buffet lunch.

Next, you'll descend the canyon to ride the white-water rapids of the Colorado River, including the Fisher Towers area that features soaring canyon walls, giant rock spires and plenty of wildlife. This 4-hour portion of your adventure begins with a safety briefing. Once you're outfitted with a life jacket, climb into an awaiting raft with a river guide who expertly navigates your raft over Class II and III rapids. 

Rest assured that sections of calm water follow, where you can relax, take photos (waterproof bag provided) or even swim if temperatures allow. After a fun-filled day off-roading and rafting in this spectacular wilderness, you are returned to Moab where your tour ends.

Great 4x4 experience with family and friends through the Canyonlands with our drivers Larry, Sharron and Johnny! They made the experience exciting, educational and personable. Ask for them! Finished the day cooling down on a 1/2 day rafting trip with our awesome raftmaster Rob. Choose Navtec!

The rafting trip was not so great. You may just sit down en look around. There is almost no speeding of the water. It would be nice if you may do the paddling yourself.
Our reservation was not planned in. But the arranged everything, so we could do the whole trip!
But the kano where we asked for was not arranged!
The 4x4 was great, we had a goed driver and he told us a lot.
If you do the 4x4 in the afternoon there is more time to do some viewings than in the morning, so ask for the afternoon!!!

We originally booked the 4x4 experience with the rafting. Luckily, we called the day before to confirm and found out our trip was cancelled. I would highly advise a call to the tour company a day in advance to verify reservations. The tour company was gracious enough to move us to the all day 4x4 experience. Great tour guides, knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to travel to sections of Canyonlands that we would never have been able to see on our own. The park is massive! Lunch is just cold cuts, chips and fresh fruit, nothing lavish. We were informed that the river rafting wasn't all that great in that area, so all ended well for us.

Fantastic morning ground tour through the canyon floor of Canyonlands. Really amazing adventure and not something you would want to do yourself without a really high-wheelbase 4WD and a very experienced 4WD driver, with local knowledge. The afternoon rafting section of the tour, which was operated by another tour organizer, was OK once we hit the water but the administration around it left a lot to be desired more time waiting around than on the water!

I really enjoyed the 4 wheel driving experience in Canyonlands in air conditioned SUV. Lunch ok sandwich. The rafting was an oar boat so passengers just went for the ride on very mild water mostly flat -not very exciting. I opted for ducky which was more fun
