River Rafting Trips

Ask any of the 22,000 Colorado River runners who brave Grand Canyon white water river rafting trips each year to describe the experience and you’re likely to hear that it is “the trip of a lifetime.”

Whitewater rafting down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon is among the more incredible ways to experience this Natural Wonder of the World. River rafting trips can be a one-day excursion — available exclusively from the Hualapai Tribe starting from Peach Springs in the West Rim — or it can be a fourteen-day vacation with off-river hiking with swims in turquoise pools and waterfalls, and afternoons spent relaxing in hidden grottoes or overlooking scenic vistas. Upper Canyon trips put in at Lee's Ferry north of the North Rim, and there are shuttles to Lee's Ferry from the South Rim as well as Flagstaff and Las Vegas. Lower Canyon trips require participants hike down the Canyon to the River, and disembark from there. Most of the multi-night trips need to be booked a year in advanced as there are a limited number of licensed Colorado River rafting outfitters.
