Adrift Adventures, an authorized concessionaire of the National Parks Service, announced its available launch dates for multi-day rafting trips in Dinosaur National Monument on the Green River and Yampa River, which will span May 28 – August 29, 2014.
Available five-day Yampa River commercial launches include May 28, June 4, June 14, June 18 and June 19, 2014; and available four-day Green River commercial launches include June 27, July 10, July 14, July 19, July 20, August 22, and August 29, 2014, according to Travis Hochard, general manager, Adrift Adventures.
“The winter season is a good time to start planning your multi-day rafting trip in Dinosaur National Monument,” Hochard explained. “Dates and spaces are limited so most launches are booked out by the start of summer.”
Five-day Yampa River rafting trips start at $845.00 for adults and $250.00 for children 12 and under; and four-day Green River rafting trips start at $785 for adults and $250.00 for children 12 and under, according to Hochard.
“If you book before December 18, 2014 you can save $100 per adult,” Hochard said. “This is a great opportunity for families to plug into nature and recharge with no cell phones, no video games and no TVs.”
This area of Dinosaur National Monument is road-less wilderness, so Adrift Adventures will bring all food and gear along on oar boats and participants will stop at a new camp each night, according to Jenny Biggs, operations manager, Adrift Adventures.
“Guides and guests practice leave no trace camping, so if you pack it in, you pack it out,” Biggs explained. “Portable toilet systems, privacy tents and hand-washing stations are provided.”
Meals from first day’s to last day’s lunch are also provided and prepared by Adrift Adventures, Biggs said.
“We will provide everyone a profile form to complete and return prior to their trip so that we are made aware of dietary needs and requests,” Biggs said.
Adrift Adventures has been offering guided wilderness rafting trips in Dinosaur National Monument since 1980. Choose from one-day, four-day and five-day expeditions on the Green River and Yampa River mid-May through Labor Day. Call 800-824-0150 to book or visit http://www.adrift.com for more information.
