Rafting the San Juan River in southeastern Utah offers the ultimate outdoor family vacation with easy paddling and hiking. The river is a place of surreal beauty and vibrancy, hundreds of millions of years in the making. A calm, congenial stretch, rafting the San Juan combines a relaxing float trip livened up by fun Class II rapids. Kids and adults love the terrific hiking opportunities and the warm water. A bottomless archaeological treasure chest, this area encases numerous remnants of ancient civilizations. Lined with vivid pictographs and petroglyphs, Ancestral Puebloan ruins, and Moki Steps–carved into near-vertical sandstone over 800 years ago–the San Juan is an enormous natural museum locked within a labyrinth of dramatic red rock canyons.
