Family Adventure Vacations Great family adventures start in America's desert southwest, which is largely defined by a single river, the Colorado. Born out of snow pack found high in the US Rocky Mountains, the River surges south and then west into Utah, becoming equally both a creator and key characteristic of the outstanding scenery of the Colorado Plateau. This region offers exciting family adventures and is known worldwide for its many superior national parks, including Arches, Bryce, Zion, and Canyonlands – seemingly endless, rugged terrain of rich red and tan cliffs, sculpted spires and far reaching canyons. This area brims with Native American and Old West history, not to mention scores of adventure opportunities: rafting the Colorado, hiking or horseback riding through picture-book settings with dramatic buttes and pinnacles; mountain biking on Moab’s notorious Slick Rock; 4x4 touring Utah’s splendid, remote backcountry, and much, much more. Come harness all the local flavor and adventure of southeastern Utah on O.A.R.S. Ranch and Raft Vacation at Red Cliffs Lodge.

Family Adventures - Why the Ranch & Raft?

This vacation package combines four days and three nights of rafting and camping in Cataract Canyon on the Colorado River, followed by two days and nights at Red Cliffs Lodge, one of Utah’s most beautiful guest ranches.

The first four days of our vacation begin on the Colorado River through Cataract Canyon. This brings exhilarating whitewater, big-beach camping, incredible side-canyon hikes to geologic and historic wonders and astounding views around every bend. Depending on the time of year in which you go, the whitewater varies from mild and family friendly to white-knuckle, experienced-only excitement. Prehistoric ruins, petroglyphs and pictographs are common along the shores and in the side canyons, inspiring visions of a wilder North America. Paleontological specimens are likewise on display in the many fossilized remains embedded in the ancient ocean beds. Many species of wild animals are found along the river’s edge, drawn to the only major source of water in the area. Finding shelter in riverside tamarisks, willows and cottonwoods are bighorn sheep, deer and great blue heron, as well as ring-tailed cat, fox, beaver and bobcat.

The second phase of our vacation begins at Red Cliffs Lodge, which rests on the banks of the Colorado River, its back yard a wide-open frontier of red-rock desert splendor. This is your playground for two days and nights as you hike, 4x4, and horseback ride your way through Utah’s stunning backcountry. If you prefer, it can simply be a glorious backdrop as you lounge by Red Cliffs’ pool and spa.

This all-inclusive package truly allows you to experience the best of southeastern Utah in a limited amount of time. Here are just a few highlights of this outstanding adventure:

Family Adventures - NATIONAL PARKS
•  Known for the stunning rock arches that rise out of slabs of sandstone to gracefully bend between surrounding cliffs, Arches National Park is no less than a natural phenomenon. Likewise family adventures to the Canyonlands National Park offer endless breathtaking vistas of unique geologic formations, and preserves vast areas in the central Colorado Plateau. The Green and Colorado Rivers, with assistance from other eroding factors, are in part responsible for the formation of this wilderness.
