$15 for a Two-Hour Self-Guided Rafting or Kayaking Trip for One ($30 Value)

Staffers give paddling instruction and advice for river navigation, such as which forks to take and which islands to avoid. They may also explain riverside features to keep an eye out for, such as mountains and historic sites, before sending participants off on unguided tours. Clad in life vests, participants then load into one- or two-person inflatable kayaks or sturdy seven-person inflatable rafts to swirl down Provo Canyon's class I and class II rapids. As paddlers explore the 6-mile stretch, they drift under historic railroad bridges and between towering cliffs populated by birds of prey and other local wildlife.

High Country Adventure

Though it began as a snowmobiling tour group in the early 1980s, the family owners of High Country Adventure quickly expanded their territory to the water, the trails, and the forest canopy. Conducting most of their trips on a 6-mile stretch of the lower Provo River and a 12-mile canyon-clad expanse of the Weber River, High Country's guides encourage locals and visitors alike to explore the area's rugged terrain and take in the natural treasures made possible by its ecosystem. The company frequently puts this love of the environment into practice, urging catch-and-release during fishing excursions and often lending their gear to others for trips down the river to collect drifting garbage.

The group's more than 20 guides lead rafting trips down the Provo River's class I and II rapids or the Weber River's class II and III rapids, pointing out local flora and fauna as well as unique rock formations along the way. Combination trips set out on a mountain train ride before rafting commences or add ziplining to a day of rafting, sending guests out of water and sweeping through overhead tree canopies over the Provo River. Prospective guides with High Country Adventures commit to internalizing the local rivers and terrain on their own before they’re trusted with leading groups, ensuring each one knows how to handle excursion variables and what the river gods’ favorite appeasing snack is on Tuesdays.
