Guests should dedicate the entire day to this hike, and reservations should be made to stay overnight at the South Rim. Guests needing to return to Las Vegas should arrange a charter flight for the day after your trip ends. We will provide you with contact information to set this up.
South Rim Lodging: You will want to stay at the South Rim Village in Grand Canyon National Park the night after you hike out. Lodging should be booked as soon as possible. Reservations in the park open one year in advance and can sell out.
What people say
“The incredible rapids, which I thought was going to be the highlight of my trip was overshadowed by the amazing guides that I met on the trip. Everything from the layering of the Canyon, the animals we encountered, and the secrets within the wall was presented with love and passion by the guides. That really helped to give us an appreciation for what we were experiencing.”

“It's hard to explain how sleeping in the open, waking up with sun, packing all your belongings into a dry bag, floating down the river for 8 hours in 115-degree heat, baking in the sun, with an occasional rapid run, with a break for lunch and a nap in the shade, with people you met days earlier, could add up to the best vacation ever. But there you have it!”
