Utah River Rafting
Utah is a land known for its stunning landscapes and dramatic contrasts – from red rock spires that tower above the desert landscape in the south to snow-capped mountains with renowned ski resorts in the north. Utah is also home to three famous rivers – the Colorado, Green, and the Yampa. These three rivers offer the most diverse rafting experiences you can find in a single state – from calm stretches of the longest undammed river in the southwest (the Green River) to the most exciting whitewater in the western United States (the Colorado River).
Sheri Griffith River Expeditions is proud to call Utah home, and look forward to sharing our state’s spectacular scenery with you on an SGRE river rafting trip.
