3-Day River Trip from Sand Island to Mexican Hat
Adults - $700, Under 15 - $550

This meandering section of river merges ancient cliff dwellings with little known pioneer history. Unique sand waves provide the riding thrills and spectacular side canyons offer magnificent views. As we float the river, a beautiful land unfolds, exposing untouched ruins and geologic uplifts in the rockface, known as anticlines. This is your time for soulful contemplation and mischievous water games. Spend the afternoon drifting in your own kayak or exploring a tranquil canyon. Evening falls, as we camp under shady cottonwood trees and on star-lit beaches. Our river run is 27 miles.

5-Day river trip from Mexican Hat to Clay Hills
Adults - $1166, Under 15 - $916

This is our favorite stretch of the San Juan. Its famous gooseneck turns and powerful rapids keep you hanging onto your seat. Approaching a pristine side canyon, we discover refreshing pools, perfect for an afternoon plunge. Take this time to relax and listen to the solitude, broken only by the melodious call of a canyon wren. Later, a day hike reveals a secluded spring with miniature orchids adorning the canyon walls. A grand finale of a canyon awaits us on our last day. Polished limestone pools and sculptured sandstone extend to the river’s edge, inviting your imagination to identify its many shapes. Oar, paddle, and self-propelled kayaks are also available during this 58 mile stretch of the San Juan.
