At a Glance
From Salt Lake City, journey by coach, van and raft to reach Cataract Canyon, the most remote location in the Lower 48. It’s here where you’ll connect with your surroundings during explorations into what the ancient Puebloan peoples deemed “the center of the universe.” On an invigorating learning adventure, raft with the only outfitter that rows the river, instead of by noisy motor, and move with the natural rhythm of the Colorado River. Enjoy fascinating – and sometimes challenging – hikes through riverside forests and to some of the world’s most incredible landscapes, all while gaining extensive knowledge of the geology and ecology of this untouched wilderness. At the end of each day you’ll be reminded of your escape from the sounds and lights of the city as you camp under millions of sparkling stars in this International Dark Sky Park, and immerse yourself in the beauty of our world.
