Grand Canyon River Rafting
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 with lunch served along the river, 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. Trips typically put in at Lee's Ferry north of the North Rim, but there are shuttles and other modes of transportation to Lee's Ferry from the South, North and West Rims as well as Flagstaff and Las Vegas. Most of the trips need to be booked a year in advanced as there are a limited number of licensed Colorado River rafting outfitters.
