In recent years, an increasing number of the guests on our desolate river trips look up at the Milky Way on moonless nights and candidly admit that they’ve never seen anything so beautiful in their lives. This has not been the norm for humanity; only in recent centuries have we cast our eyes elsewhere and forgotten the stars.

The unfortunate fact is, much of the Earth is losing its dark night skies to light pollution, and, these days, most Americans will live their whole lives never seeing the Milky Way. Despite this, we are happy to say the rivers we run, and the trails we bike, are all desolate and have some of the darkest night skies on the planet. For this reason, we are excited to partner with Clark Planetarium, to offer this White Rim Trail “Dark Sky” specialty trip.

Utah is lucky to have a world-class institute like Clark Planetarium, dedicated to teaching people, especially kids, about astronomy. On these trips you can look forward to having a dedicated astro-wiz from the Planetarium as well as a dark canopy free of moonlight to see as far into space as humanly possible. This combination will assure your bike nights are as exciting as your bike days.

Your White Rim Trail bike trip will be in Canyonlands National Park, which was recently certified as a “Dark Sky Park” by the International Dark Sky Association. On this trip we’ll explore the Milky Way, see the Andromeda Galaxy, watch satellites and meteors, and learn constellations, just with binoculars and naked eyes; we will also haul along a nice telescope to peer even deeper into the abyss.

Join us and Clark Planetarium to share in the oldest of human traditions, staring at the night sky.

The land is awesome in every respect. Every canyon, every bend in the river reveals something else to stun the senses and leave you marveling that such a place exists at all. We have been going there for over forty-five years. Whitewater rafting through the most spectacular landscapes on earth; on some of the hottest...
