Multigenerational travel is a growing trend for good reason. When different generations of a family can come together, share common experiences and have fun, lasting memories are made.
One activity often overlooked as a multigenerational option is river rafting because it has the potential to be dangerous for young and old. Wilderness River Adventures created a river rafting experience that takes the danger out of the equation, leaving behind nothing but fun and adventure, making it the perfect travel experience for multigenerational families.
The company specially curated its Horseshoe Bend Rafting Tours to let families enjoy a safe rafting experience along the Colorado River. All tours are led by experienced and knowledgeable guides in a 32-passenger raft, so there’s plenty of room for large groups. The section of the river used for this tour is calm and peaceful, allowing for a relaxing and comfortable ride. It accommodates passengers of all skill levels, so there is no need to worry about navigating rapids, dangerous turns or rough waters.
The excursion doesn’t just give you a peaceful raft ride — it’s an excellent opportunity to experience the incredible scenery associated with the Colorado River. Starting at Lake Powell in Page, Arizona, the ride heads 15 miles down through the Glen Canyon section of the river, ending at Lees Ferry. Along the way you will see the Glen Canyon Dam, the stunning Vermillion Cliffs and the iconic Horseshoe Bend. There will also be a stop at Petroglyph Beach where you can stretch your legs on a hike to a nearby preserved petroglyph panel, or take a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the Colorado. Throughout the journey your guide will give you a history of the area and the Puebloans who called it home.
The Horseshoe Bend Rafting tour is perfect for passengers age 4 and up, takes a half day to experience, and passengers are treated to cold water and lemonade during the trip. At the end of the tour, the company will bus you back to your starting point to complete your journey.
There is no rafting experience necessary and passengers don’t need to know how to swim — life jackets will be provided for passengers 12 and under and for adults in the event of an emergency.
This rafting experience is ideal spring through fall and tours run rain or shine. Tickets cost $88.85 for adults and $78.39 for kids. Check here for post-COVID-19 tour options.
Even if you have picky eaters in your family, you won’t be at a loss for great dining in Mexico City. The city boasts a rich culinary culture and history far beyond tacos and rice and beans (in fact, you’ll probably be hard pressed to find rice and beans in most places, as that’s more of an American-Mexican dish than traditional to the country).

IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht.
