How To Choose
We always recommend spending as much time in the canyon as you can. We also believe that some time in the canyon is better than no time in the canyon! Find what works in your schedule and make your dream trip a reality.
3 Day Escape – Travel 50 river miles by raft and 40 miles by jet boat from Whitmore Wash to Pearce Ferry – that’s nearly one-third of the canyon in just three days! Spend one day and night at a lovely, secluded ranch on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The second day starts with a thrilling helicopter ride across an ancient lava flow before dropping down into the canyon for two days and one night on the river. Enjoy fun rapids, check out a hidden waterfall, and camp under the stars. Round-trip transportation from Las Vegas, NV, or Grand Canyon South Rim is included.
6 Day Motor Trip – Travel 187 river miles from historic Lees Ferry to a scenic helicopter take-out at Whitmore Wash. Spend 6 days and 5 nights rafting, camping, and exploring the heart of the Grand Canyon. End with a thrilling helicopter ride out of the canyon and a fixed-wing flight back to your starting point. You can opt for round-trip transportation from Las Vegas, NV, or meet us in Marble Canyon, AZ.
7 Day Motor Trip – Our most popular trip! Our 6 and 7 day motor trips are exactly the same in terms of logistics and river miles, so you may want to look at both trip types as you consider your adventure. The 6 day trip fits nicely into a week of vacation whereas the 7 day trip allows for a bit more time each day to explore the canyon and/or hang out at camp.
8 Day Motor Trip – Travel 280 river miles from Lees Ferry to Pearce Ferry. This trip is unique as it is our only trip that travels the full length of the canyon. Round-trip ground transportation from Las Vegas, NV, is included.
If you are interested in the 8 mile hike in or out of the canyon, see below for additional weeklong rafting trip options.
13 Day Oar Trip – Travel 225 river miles from Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek. Unplug for two weeks, immerse yourself in the canyon, and enjoy this slower paced trip. Round-trip ground transportation options from Las Vegas, NV, or Grand Canyon South Rim are available.
11 or 15 Day Hiker’s Special Trips – Very similar to the 13 day trips, but with cooler canyon temperatures and extra days on the river, get ready to explore the Grand Canyon more extensively. Motor and oar raft options available.
Our trips are about much more than just rafting. Getting out and exploring the Grand Canyon is a big part of every day. Every trip has daily side hikes but some trips offer more strenuous hikes.
If hiking is your thing, you can consider a rafting trip that includes a strenuous hike into or out of the canyon via the Bright Angel Trail. These trips are a great way to experience the Grand Canyon both on the river and at the South Rim. This hike is rewarding, but it is also very challenging. The hike in or out of the Grand Canyon is approximately 8 miles (13 km) and involves 4,400 feet (1,340 m) in elevation change. This steep trail has very little undulation, so you’ll be hiking either all uphill or all downhill. We recommend these trips for people who are experienced, enthusiastic hikers.
- Stoked for a hiking/rafting combination? Check out our 6 and 8 Day Oar trips.
- Need additional date options or looking for a shorter trip? Our sister company, Grand Canyon Whitewater, has similar 6 and 8 day oar trips. They also offer 4 and 5 day motor trip options that include hiking Bright Angel Trail.
- Our Hiker’s Special trips provide a variety of additional options. These trips are offered in April when the weather is cooler to allow for longer hikes and more time exploring deep within the canyon.
