White Water Rafting

Take a rafting trip down one of Utah’s “postcard” canyons – Provo Canyon is home to soaring canyons and Robert Redford’s ‘Sundance Resort’ while the Weber Canyon has rich locomotive history and interesting geological formations. Both Rivers are conveniently located 30 minutes from Park City and 50 minutes from Salt Lake.

We offer daily mild whitewater trips down the Provo River (class I and II rapids) and Weber River (Class II and III rapids) Both rivers appeal to people of all ages.

The Provo River trip is home to many bird species and river wildlife, with exciting trips under historic train bridges, and just enough whitewater to splash but not soak you. Most trips last 1.5 to 2 hours (depending on water level).

The Weber River is home to several historic sites and the famous Devil’s Slide geological formation. With a steady stream of class II and III rapids, this 12 mile stretch provides plenty of excitement for everyone. Most trips are 3-4 hours – based on water flow. Expect to get wet (or soaked) on the Weber from May to July.
