If you never dreamed of rafting down the Colorado River, you cannot consider yourself to be a true American.
This stunning canyon and the amazing confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers, offer a great destination for all you nature lovers out there.
With many hotels, a gondola, the diminishing rainfall, the ever increasing flyover traffic from sightseeing tours, the long stretch of navigable Colorado River region is your next US adventure travel experience.
The river itself starts as a trickle in Rocky Mountain National Park, which is a true paradise for hikers all over the world. Then in Utah, the river runs through Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.
Then we have the city of Moab, located between the two parks mentioned above.
This city is “the go-to hub for desert adventures, with legendary mountain biking, canyon hikes, and river floats”.
In Arizona, the river goes for a 280-mile stretch from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead through the Grand Canyon.
Here you can experience all – from 98 rated rapids and sandy beaches, to astonishing ancient ruins.
There’s also Flagstaff, which is often treated as a pit stop on the way to the Grand Canyon, but what a pit stop it is! If you are a beer lover, make sure you pay a visit to Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail.
