Trip Itinerary

Marble Canyon Option: Plan to arrive at Marble Canyon, AZ at least one day before the trip starts. Consider staying at the Marble Canyon Lodge since you meet the guides and other river guests near there on the first day. Guests may park vehicles in the parking lot across from the Marble Canyon Lodge during the river trip at no charge. Las Vegas Option: Plan to arrive in Las Vegas at least one day before the trip starts. Consider staying at the Desert Rose Resort where a representative will pick guests up early morning on the first day.
Las Vegas guests will meet a representative early in the morning at the Desert Rose Resort. Board the shuttle and transfer to the Boulder City Airport for the charter flight to Marble Canyon. Everyone will meet together with the river guides in the building across from the Marble Canyon Lodge. After a continental breakfast and orientation, guests board our shuttles for a brief ride to the launch point at Lee’s Ferry. Guests will be assigned two dry bags and a life jacket, then are ready to get underway by mid-morning. Let the journey begin!
Each day there are opportunities to soak up the Grand Canyon vistas, experience the biggest whitewater in North America, and explore various side canyons, waterfalls, and streams. At midday, lunch is prepared on the sandy beaches next to the river. After a full day, it will be time to set up camp and then relax while sharing stories with new friends. As the sun sets over the walls of the canyon, appreciate a good night’s rest under a starry sky.
Enjoy one final riverside meal amidst the Grand Canyon backdrop. After breakfast, guests board a helicopter at Whitmore Wash (mile 187) to be flown out of the canyon for a ten minute ride to Bar 10 Ranch. There is typically time to shower and stroll through the gift shop before boarding a charter plane returning to Las Vegas, NV or Marble Canyon, AZ.
