This canyon of the Green River received its name from John Wesley Powell during his epic descent of the Green and Colorado Rivers in 1869 and 1871, but it is far from "desolate". Red rock canyon walls and a verdant ribbon of riverside foliage define this incised meander cutting through the Tavaputs Plateau. The trip is 84 miles in length and includes about 50 riffles and rapids. Choose to combine this wonderful rafting vacation with a visit to the Tavaputs Ranch, 9000 ft. above sea level on the top of the Tavaputs Plateau overlooking Desolation Canyon. Horseback riding, wildlife viewing, cozy comfortable bunkhouses, delicious meals and the hospitality of the Jensen family will make your stay at the Tavaputs Ranch a fabulous experience.

"Deso" is appropriate for children as young as eight years of age, and has provided a family vacation venue for many of our guests. We run this trip in 18-foot rowing rafts, and often bring along smaller inflatable kayaks, for those who would like an increased level of participation. On a limited number of trips in the early season, we may also bring along one or more of our new wooden dories. Please see Our Boats for watercraft descriptions.

Make your reservation with our office. Meet us in Green River, Utah the evening prior to the trip. (Accommodations that night are your responsibility.) We will meet at the John Wesley Powell River History Museum for a short orientation, and to distribute waterproof bags. The following morning, the day begins with a scenic aerial preview of the canyon via a short flight from the Green River airport to the launch site at Sand Wash. We will provide transportation to the airport, as well as parking for your vehicle near our warehouse. At the end of the river trip, we will return you to Green River City around 4:00 pm.

You may choose to drive to Green River and leave your car at our place. Or, if you are flying out to join us, book your flight into Salt Lake City, Utah or Grand Junction, Colorado and rent a car or take a van shuttle for the drive to Green River. We can give you shuttle company information over the phone. Please call for details. (See the region map for more information.)
