White Water Rafting – June 2015

This summer, Single Parent Travel will venture out west to take in the glory that is Moab, Utah and the Colorado River with a 3 night rafting trip from June 23 to 26.

Surrounded by an immense red rock playground, Moab, Utah is the perfect setting for a kid-friendly family outing–and Western River Expedition’s Southwest Sampler provides just the right amount of adventure for the whole gang. You’ll get a taste of the “best of the Southwest” on this 4-day, 3-night getaway. First, you’ll spend 2 relaxing nights in luxurious comfort at the Gonzo Inn – the perfect location adjacent to shopping, restaurants, a city walking path, and only one block from the Moab Adventure Center. You’ll explore the wonders of Arches National Park and experience one of Moab, Utah’s most renowned adventures – an off-road Hummer Safari. Top it all off with 2 days of Colorado River rafting plus one night of all-inclusive beach camping and star gazing and you’ll return with endless stories and unforgettable memories.

And of course, we have added in some special SPT goodies as well–we are working on those details now!

AIRLINE INFO: Currently there are no scheduled commercial flights into Moab. The airport authority is negotiating at the present time and people in the area are hopeful. The nearest airport is Grand Junction and a 90 minute shuttle will be required. The cost of the shuttle is $200 per direction, but the cost per person will likely be reduced as more guests are added.

HOTEL INFO: The rate to stay at the Gonzo Inn for an additional night after the rafting trip is $250 per night and is inclusive of all taxes and fees. Lower priced accommodations are available as well in motel-type properties.

COST: $1350 for an adult and a child (5-17)

ADDITIONAL COSTS: Airfare, transfer, insurance, additional hotel nights, personal expenses. Due to airline scheduling from many cities, an additional night may be required at the end of the adventure.

    Hi- really interested in the trip, but having great difficulty finding any flights from DC area. If others are interested, perhaps we can combine and meet in Grand Junction and have a van/bus?

    Hi. I am very interested in this trip. I will be flying out of Chicago. Do I try to coordinate a flight so that I can join people at Grand Junction to take the shuttle?
