Experience the Ultimate Outdoor Adventure with Colorado River & Trail Expeditions

In the outdoor adventure industry since 1971, C.R.A.T.E. has been a leader in fully outfitted rafting expeditions for over 40 years. Our rafting trips specialize in off river side canyon hiking, and it is our goal to provide our guests with fun and exciting adventures they will never forget, while introducing them to amazing wilderness experiences.

Crate 1971 Expedition BrochureIn 1971, we began rafting on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, the most famous stretch of whitewater rafting in the world. Over time, we have expanded upstream on the Colorado River into Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park, Utah’s Westwater Canyon, and the Fisher Towers area near Moab, Utah. In addition to the Colorado River, we operate on the Green River through Utah’s historic Desolation Canyon. For a true wilderness experience nothing can compare to our rafting expeditions on the Tatshenshini and Alsek rivers in Alaska and Canada. These rafting expeditions travel through a vast internationally-protected wilderness area that includes Kluane National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, and the Tatshenshini-Alsek Wilderness Provincial Park. For those looking for a short multi-sport Grand Canyon adventure, we offer 2 and 3-night Grand Canyon river trips that are all-inclusive from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Family Owned & Operated Since 1971

All of our rafting expeditions are fully-outfitted. We provide everything you need for your trip, including quality river gear and camping equipment, healthy delicious meals, and friendly, knowledgeable river guides.
