Rafting on the Green River

Have a mild –– or a wild –– whitewater rafting adventure

You’ll paddle furiously. You’ll float. You’ll scream with excitement. And you’ll never forget an exhilarating, whitewater rapids thrill ride.

In fact, the Green River is one of the country’s world-class river rafting destinations to experience the true enjoyment of nature at its best.

Whether you choose a relaxing float or a heart-pounding adventure, your family has a choice of guides and outfitters to get you down the river in style. Shoot through Flaming Gorge for miles of smiles.

The Green River winds through Flaming Gorge in Northeast Utah and continues through Dinosaur National Monument. It then flows further through east-central Utah and its deserts. Finally, it slides past the town of Green River and merges with the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park.

Below Flaming Gorge dam is an easy whitewater rafting route that’s also one of the world’s finest tailwater fisheries for Rainbow, Brown and Cutthroat Trout, as well as fly fishing. But it’s not all easy floating.

In fact, the span of the Green River between the Gates of Lodore and Split Mountain is home to extremely intense Class III and Class IV rapids. This includes some of the most incredible scenery found in the western United States. You can also find great camping and amazing hiking trails. Typically trips are booked between April and October. On all trips, life jackets and the necessary equipment are mandatory.
