The San Juan River

Float one of the Southwest’s most scenic rivers.

Petroglyphs along tehSan Juan RiverThe San Juan River in southeastern Utah is one of the main river tributaries to the Colorado River. Float through calm stretches of magnificent canyon and go on rewarding hikes. There are impressive archeological sites along the river, including ancient ruins and indigenous rock-art panels. You’ll travel on oar-powered rafts, paddleboats, and inflatable kayaks. Trips depart from and return to Flagstaff, Arizona.

We also offer custom San Juan trips for groups.

If you are an educator or group leader who would like to arrange a custom trip, submit a Group Request Form and contact Emma Wharton, Executive Director.
