Rejuvenate mind and spirit as you raft exhilarating rapids and enjoy the camaraderie of this week-long women's getaway. Meet in Moab, Utah's adventure hub, and tackle Class I to IV rapids over 96 miles. Six days on the river are topped with relaxing riverside camping, where you can bond and unplug under star-speckled desert skies.


Arrive in Moab

Arrive in in Moab, Utah's lively adventure hub. Enjoy the afternoon exploring this vibrant little downtown with eateries, legendary bookstores and local artisan's shops. In the late afternoon, meet your MT Sobek guide at the hotel for a celebratory welcome and orientation to the trip. Get to know the fantastic group of women you'll be traveling with over an evening of festivities.

Start the Journey Down the Colorado River

After a delightful morning of yoga by the creek near the hotel, we'll gather for a short drive to the Colorado River, just downstream of Moab. Meet the rest of your guides by the river and receive a safety briefing before the journey begins. Adjust to the pace of the warm Colorado River as you paddle past spectacular scenery. Upon arrival at camp, join the guides in setting up tents or relax riverside with a celebratory drink. After dinner, watch the sunset with new friends and share stories of the day's adventure.

Try Paddle Boarding & Explore Slot Canyons

Wake up to the delightful sounds of the river, and the opportunity for sunrise yoga to start the day. After breakfast, pack up your bags and continue the journey downriver. Spend the afternoon over fun water-based activities in the warm Colorado River. Try stand-up paddle boarding or grab inflatable kayaks for a spot of paddling. Stop to explore Native American ruins and learn about the flora and fauna of this fragile desert environment. Arrive at camp, and enjoy a relaxed guided meditation and/or yoga on the banks of the river, followed by optional river games like horseshoes and bocce ball. This evening at the riverside campsite, count the stars on the bright desert sky up above as you have the option to sleep outside under the stars.

Morning Yoga & Swim at The Confluence

Start the day at a leisurely pace, enjoying the canyon's solitude with a morning extended yoga session. After a tasty brunch, we'll load up the rafts and head downriver. Shortly, we'll head out on the Loop Hike — a short, steep 1-mile trek (800 vertical feet) with majestic vistas. Meanwhile, the rafts continue downriver to prepare your post-hike lunch by the river. Float past the confluence of the Green and the Colorado Rivers, an iconic spot where two great rivers meet. This evening, camp on a sandy beach and let the guides surprise you with festivities.

Sunrise Trek to the Dollhouse & Whitewater Rafting

Start with a sunrise hike to the Dollhouse in the heart of the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park — a 2,000-ft vertical trek to remember. Enjoy the breathtaking vistas and take perfect yoga photos with the desert landscape spread out beyond. By mid-morning, get some thrills in Cataract Canyon with rides over 15 rapids, including Brown Betty and Mile Long. Hear your laughter echoing off the canyon walls as you scout the rapids and feel the rush of riding over. Make camp on a sandy beach this afternoon, in time to watch the sunset while chatting with friends over appetizers and drinks, then let the river sounds lull you to sleep.

Raft Cataract Canyon’s Big Drop Rapids

Rise to face some of the best rapids in the world! Known as "the Big Drops," these classic rapids include Satin's Gut and Little Niagara Falls — and provide a serious adrenaline rush. Do a few hikes first to scout the rapids, so the guides can assess the safest and best ride down the white-water waves. On this last night on the river, wrap up the incredible adventure with a special feast for the whole crew.

Float towards the Grand Canyon & Scenic Flight to Moab

Awake for your last day on the river, which features only a half-day of rafting — about 15 miles on the river through one of the most spectacular canyon stretches. Practice your yoga handstands, then get on the river and journey through one of the most spectacular canyon stretches. The towering walls rise higher as you get deeper and approach Lake Powell, just upstream of the Grand Canyon. At the take-out, you'll say goodbye to the Colorado River and transfer to the Hite Airstrip, where a charter flight whisks you up and over Canyonlands National Park retracing the river you just rafted! Upon landing, a vehicle is waiting to transport your group back to Moab.
