Today's side deal is music to any canyon-caroler's ears: for $430, you get a two-day, one-night Cataract Express river-rafting adventure on the Colorado River from Western River Expeditions (a $730.85 value, including tax). A three-percent park-access fee and $15 insurance are included in the Groupon price.
Your excursion begins at the Moab Adventure Center, from whence the fearless adventure-teers will transport you to a calm stretch of the Colorado River. You'll get all the necessary rafting gear before you hit the rapids on the rafting adventure of a lifetime. Over the two-day journey, you'll drift over 100 miles of the river, tucked 2,000 feet within breathtaking sandstone formations, canyon mazes, and natural rock arches carved from lingering long-melted glaciers. You'll come across ancient Native American ghost-towns and camp overnight on the banks of the Colorado, where guides will prepare a freshly cooked dinner complete with delectable dessert before you retire for the night (roomy tents and cozy, elevated cots are included). At the end of the second day, a Cessna 5–7-seater aircraft will take you on a scenic hour-long flight over Canyonlands National Park and back to the adventure center in Moab.
You must book your trip one week in advance. This Groupon is only valid on the following dates: May 7, 14, 21, 24, 26, 28, and 31.
- It was AWESOME. Sleeping under the stars, major big water rapids, crystal blue water at Havasu & Little Colorado. The guides were the best. The food was grade AAA. I marked it off my "bucket list" but I think it may go back on in a year or two. – parkerce, TripAdvisor
- The Moab Adventure Center has it all. Compared to the other companies in Moab it is obvious the Moab Adventure Center cares about the type of service they provide. Upon walking in the doors we discovered they had it all. We could have spent days in Moab doing all kinds of different trips. – A Yahoo! Travel Contributor on 07/18/05
