Vegan Wellness River Trip
Aug 31

Vegan Wellness River Trip

  • Colorado River through Westwater Canyon

Tess Challis, author, vegan chef, and wellness coach, will lead this trip that’s sure to be delicious for both body and soul. Tess will bring her fifteen years of experience as a professional chef to the backcountry kitchen; preparing amazing, healthy, vegan meals each day. In the evenings, Tess will share wisdom from her own personal journeys through chronic illness and disease, to veganism and healthy living. As a wellness coach, Tess is uniquely qualified to speak about overcoming obstacles and challenges to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  Come explore the wildness of the river, the taste of gourmet backcountry cuisine, and the power of self-discovery!

Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon whitewater rafting trip takes us down a segment of the Colorado River that is magnificent and is often referred to as a miniature Grand Canyon. The beauty and grandeur of this section of the Colorado River offers memorable sights such as pristine beaches, charming side canyons, and beautiful campsites. And with 4 days to explore, you will have tons of time to relax, hike, or float your way through your vacation!
