There is no better time but the here and now for adventure!! Spend three amazing days connecting with family, friends and nature within the colorful canyons off the Colorado River.  Join GJ SUP/ Grand Junction Adventures for an unforgettable 3-day , 2 night  Colorado River Adventure. Expect beautiful paddles, colorful hikes alongside the towering canyons & peaceful Colorado River.

This section of the Colorado River is suited for beginners to experienced paddlers. The character of the river is calm, flat and slow moving. We recommend this trip for first time river paddlers. Especially, those that are ready to cross over from paddling on the lake to rivers.

“Option to pick between rafting, paddle boarding or kayaking”

We spend our days floating the river, relaxing at camp and hiking colorful side canyons. You will be mesmerized by the ancient metamorphic black rocks, desert towers, rock art and wildlife.

Stand up paddlers will learn about river environments,  paddling skills and techniques. 

Backcountry meals are amazingly delicious! Enjoy nutritious, locally sourced, whole food camp-cooked meals & beverages under the stars at our riverside camp. Vegetarian options are available. *A meal list with options will be sent out prior to trip.

You will camp nightly underneath the stars beside the Colorado river. Your eyes will be lit up with shooting stars.
