Deep within Canyonlands National Park, Cataract Canyon is a perfect balance between serene floating, incredible hiking, and fast-moving rapids. 300 million years of rock history, abstract sculpted sandstone spires, and ancient Anasazi petroglyphs and granaries. Rapids begin half-way through the trip, and during high water (May through June) provide the biggest and most challenging whitewater in the U.S. In July the river drops and the rapids become more moderate, yet still exciting.

The Green River offers a variety of trips along its 730 mile journey from the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming to the confluence of the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park. This historic River is a classic whitewater river trip: colorful cowboy, outlaw and Native American history, beautiful beaches and canyons and fun whitewater. We run three great stretches of the Green River: Gates of Lodore, Desolation Canyon and Labyrinth Canyon.

This is the last free-flowing river in the entire Colorado River drainage. In spring, the melting snow swells the narrow gorge creating unbridled rapids. Enjoy the solitude of a wilderness river; an experience truly off the beaten path. There’s time to explore side canyons and view ancient Native American rock art.
