High County Adventure will take the whole family on many incredible adventures! If its water adventures you are after, take your pick! There are a number of rafting tours for you to choose from, from May to October.
The Provo River trip is about 1.5 to 2 hours, and takes you past amazing river wildlife, under historic train bridges, and JUST that little bit of whitewater to just splash you (and not get you soaked! The Weber River tour takes you past several historic sites, including that famous Devil's Slide formations. Over 12 miles and 3 -4 hours you will experience Class II and III rapids - so expect to get wet between May and July!
If you want something super fun, High County Rafting offer Sunset tours which are always popular - with a Western BBQ at the end of it, with tasty tib, chicken, brisket, and BBQ beans...just to mention a few! They also have great full-moon trips.
If you want to experiencing paddling your own boat, then just check out their inflatable kayak tours where you can take on the river yourself after some basic instructions - the river is your oyster! This one is great for first-timers - don't worry, the lovely staff will show you the ropes!
If you want something different, you can add a train trip into the mix between May and September, with a half day excursion.

The service here is deplorable. The kids working here do not speak to you unless they absolutely have to. We were not spoken to after we got out of the river and dragged our kayak to shore, and an employee simply stared at me and walked away when I asked what to do with some extra life jackets that were in my seat on the shuttle.
The Provo river was very scenic and relaxing. Enjoyed the water, wouldn't return based on the service.

We had a ton of fun on our rafting trip. Great guides! Great overall experience. We felt very safe the whole time. We were there for a family reunion, we had 4 different rafts and everybody had an awesome time. One of the rafts had older individuals in it and the guides made sure they had a nice dry ride. We wanted to have a bit more fun then them and so our guide let us get close enough to one of the other rafts in our group and we had a water fight. It was a blast.

Apart from getting a massage, this was one of the most relaxing things I've done in my entire life. Our guide was so friendly and so good with our kids. The scenery is incredible the whole way down and you see plenty of wildlife. We saw 2 beavers, a bunch of horses, some fish jumped, and it was overall just an awesome experience. We went down in a guided raft and I'm excited to go back and try something else. maybe a kayak?

I have been down the Provo River a few times previous years with them and they took really good care of me and my family. The Provo River is much more of a calmer river which was great for the kids and the scenery is spectacular, but it was nice to get a change of pace with the excitement of the Weber River. I recently went down the Weber River with them and really enjoyed the experience. The guides were fantastic and the river had quite a few exciting rapids. I definitely will go down both rivers in future years.
