Go white river rafting in the Colorado River.
When it comes to a trip to Moab, this is a must-do adventure. Utah temperatures in the summertime can get up to 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and choosing an adventure near the cool water offers you some reprieve from the heat. You can go on a full-day or even a half-day river rafting adventure to experience the world-renowned Colorado River in its full glory. River expeditions are fun and exciting. Sometimes, hiking feels a bit too slow. But river rafting allows you to immerse yourself in the canyon in a way that’s more exciting. Spending hours on the water will make you appreciate the beauty of a body of water in the middle of the desert.
