Grand Canyon Motorized River Rafting Expeditions

Adventure lies around every corner! We offer a variety of trip lengths to stay flexible for your schedule.

7 Day Full Grand Canyon Whitewater Expedition

Join us for 7 days and 6 nights as we travel down the Colorado River, exploring the incredible Grand Canyon. Spanning 188-miles from Lees Ferry to Whitmore Wash, this week is packed with intense rapids, beautiful hikes, waterfalls, ancient ruins, and pristine swimming destinations. This is how the Grand Canyon National Park was meant to be seen! After each day’s events, enjoy a hearty feast (made with love by your crew!) and warm fire only to fall asleep on a beautiful starlit beach. On the last day of your trip, take a scenic helicopter ride over the Canyon to Bar 10 Ranch, where you will say your goodbyes and snap some final pictures.
