Trip Itinerary

There are two transportation options for this trip. If you choose to fly into Las Vegas, then you will need to arrive two days before the trip in Vegas, then make your way to the South Rim Village the day before your trip. If you choose to drive to the South Rim Village on your own, then plan on arriving one day before your trip.
Meet our hiking guide in the lobby of the Bright Angel Lodge at 5:45 a.m. Hike down the 8 mile (13km) trail to the river. Repack your bags and board the raft.
Enjoy the cooler weather in the Grand Canyon while you make your way downriver from a grand vista to a clear blue stream or a class 10 rapid! Each night, cozy up under the stars or hang around the campsite with your new found friends.
Take out at Diamond Creek and make you way back to either Las Vegas or the Grand Canyon South Rim Village. Plan to arrive in the afternoon.
