Take a rafting trip down one of Utah's "postcard" canyons, flanked by 12,000 ft. Mount Timpanogos and Big Cascade Mountain, home of Robert Redfords 'Sundance Resort'. We offer mild whitewater trips (class II) down the Provo River for people of all ages. You'll enjoy the unbelievable scenery in Provo Canyon, abundant birds and river wildlife, with exciting trips under historic train bridges, and just enough whitewater to splash but not soak you.
We strive to keep group sizes small, generally 4-6 people in a raft. Our two hour river rafting trips include: state-of-the-art rafts, life vests, friendly guides and complimentary soft drinks. Trips are generally 1.5 to 2 hours long depending on water flow. Our guides are CPR and first-aid certified and work to help everyone have an enjoyable trip. Your welcome to paddle along or just sit back and relax. Please indicate when you check-in that you want a "paddle" boat.

"Raft 'n' Rails"
Train Trip - Rafting Adventure - Scenic Lift Ride
High Country Adventure has teamed up with the Heber Valley Historic Railroad and Sundance Resort to create an unforgettable adventure. This half or full day excursion starts with a train ride in farmlands of Midway, Utah and cruises past Soldier Hollow, home of the 2002 Winter Olympic cross-country skiing events. Soon after you pass the olympic sites, the train snakes around Deer Creek Reservoir and then descends down into breathtaking Provo Canyon to the South Fork. Our rafting base of operations is just a 30 second walk from the train stop. We'll help get you outfitted with life jackets and shuttle you up the river. This is a wonderful trip that everyone will enjoy.
The rafting trip starts from the Deer creek Campground and is 6 miles long with several class II rapid sections, suitable for everyone. Our guides will make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water. The raft excursion ends at Vivian Park. From there, a shuttle bus will return you to your car at the train depot or if you choose the full day Sundance option, we'll shuttle you up to Robert Redford's resort for a scenic lift ride up the back side of Mt Timpanogos. The morning 'timesaver option' trip starts at 11:00am and ends at 3:00pm , the full-day 'Sundance option' also starts at 11:00am and ends around 5:30pm. The Raft 'n Rails adventure runs daily (Tuesday-Saturday) from late May and ends in September.
