Trip Details

 

This trip offers something for everyone!  Enjoy wildlife, serenity, and natural beauty that only the Colorado River can offer.  You’ll have plenty of time to take in historic cabins, scenic waterfalls, and steep canyon walls towering over 100′ above your head. Bald eagles, black bears, and the endangered Colorado river otter are often seen on this fun section of the river.

Radium hot springs offers an additional chance for relaxation.  After arriving at camp, you’ll have plenty of time for hiking, fishing, fossil hunting, or just relaxing beside the river while your guides prepare a delicious and hearty dinner.

Following a good night’s sleep and filling breakfast, you’ll be ready to head back out to the river for a morning of more fun and relaxation, including time in our inflatable kayaks or on our standup paddleboards. Rapids on the Upper Colorado are Class II and great for all ages and ability levels. Minimum 5 years old. Reservations required.

Also consider our 3 Days on the Upper Colorado River overnight river trip!

Ahem...where do I go potty? Don't worry, you're not the first to ask this question and you won't be the last! We want you to be comfortable and informed about this sometimes awkward question. There are private pit toilets at various spots along the river trip. However, at our camp locations there are not permanent toilets. We are required by the BLM to carry a portable toilet. This is the most environmentally conscious and sanitary way to handle human waste. Don't worry,  your guides do this all the time and they're comfortable with the questions like this on river rafting trips.

At camp, a portable toilet will be set up in a private location for your use. This is essentially a rectangular box/container that we attach a toilet seat onto. When we pack up camp in the morning, we seal up the box and take it with us! Really, it's not bad and the toilet always has a great, scenic view!

Looking for a shorter trip? Do the half day Colorado River float or the full day float.
