Interesting group of people, and NAU staff was outstanding. LOVED the days on the river.... raiting this trip as challenging is a little puzzling, unless that's based upon sleeping in a tent on the riverbank. Beautiful scenery and the ruins are awesome.

Be prepared for all kinds of weather. Don't worry if you have never kayaked--you can always ride on the raft--the sights were great.

I've just completed San Juan River Kayaking/Rafting, and it truly is such a great program! You can choose to actively kayak a gorgeous and intriguing portion of this historic river, or you can share in the thrills while others do the rafting chores for you. Camping at night under the stars after having a delicious meal, getting to know the interesting young crew members, and having experienced, fun guides leading you on invigorating hikes that lead to little known Ancestral Puebloan sites is a remarkable opportunity. I loved the vigorous activity level! I just may do it again!
