What You Can Expect

Moab Combo: Colorado River Rafting and Canyonlands National Park

Castleton Tower

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.

This tour was great! I know we saw so much more of Canyonlands than we ever would've seen on our own. Buzz was not only fun but very knowledgeable as well! Our raft trip with Tubs was a perfect afternoon activity.

Our driver, John, was extremely knowledgeable and shared many personal stories about the area as well as an enormous amount of history and geologic information. The views were breathtaking and it felt like we were seeing parts of the canyon that not many see. I've read many complaints about the wait time in between the ride and the rafting and the set up problems for lunch, but both were minimal and gave us a chance to talk with others on the trip. Once on the river, our new guide Addie was amazing as were all the others that we came in contact with on the river. She also knew so much about the area and the formations along the ride. Again, many have complained about the slow ride down the river and lack of rapids. They don't advertise it as anything other than a float. We entertained ourselves with the sheer beauty of the area, epic water fights with other rafts, time to swim in the river and enjoy each others' company.

Best way to see The CanyonLands, which is the largest of the Utah 5 national parks. In the morning we had Buzz, who drove us around on the hairiest and scariest Roads on cliff edges. He was an expert in the area and educated us on geology and history and other interesting facts of the CanyonLands, his favorite park. In the afternoon we had lunch and did a river raft on the Colorado River with Mitch. The scenery was beautiful ! The rafting was mostly gentle, with a few whitewaters. Mitch was educating and entertaining. We felt we had the best of both worlds seeing The CanyonLands from above, on and below.

The morning was great with Sharon guiding us through Canyonlands NP, then the afternoon rafting trip was a great way to cool our bodies down. The water was mostly smooth, but the guides helped us get as wet as we wanted to get. NavTek was great, would highly recommend them!!

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!
