Extra Adventure

Allow time to really engage in all that the Grand Canyon has to offer. Our 6 and 7 Day trips both travel 187 river miles, so what is the difference? The extra day provides more time for hiking, exploring side canyons, and relaxing at camp.  Most guests meet us in Las Vegas and add the optional flight to Marble Canyon, AZ on day 1.

Optional flight cost is $295 for 2022

Trip Itinerary

Marble Canyon Option: Plan to arrive in 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. We will send hotel reservation instructions once you book your trip.

Las Vegas guests will meet a representative early in the morning at the designated hotel. Board the shuttle to the airport for the charter flight to Marble Canyon. Everyone will meet together with the river guides for orientation. Then guests board shuttles for a brief ride to the launch point at Lees Ferry. Guests repack into the provided dry bags and get underway by late 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 canyon walls, appreciate a good night’s rest under a starry sky.
Enjoy one final riverside meal amidst the Grand Canyon backdrop. After breakfast, board a helicopter at Whitmore Wash (mile 187) to be flown out of the canyon for a seven-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.

What people say

“The group was great, the rapids were exciting, but the real star of the show is the Canyon! I loved traveling through the rock layers and could hardly believe the beauty of the middle granite gorge. All that ebony schist riddled with granite and studded with barrel cactus...WOW!”
— Margie, Solvang, CA

“I can not express my gratitude enough to the crew/program for such a memorable experience. The side hikes/day trips/stories/wisdom and preparation were outstanding. I would do this again in a heartbeat!”
— Sarah, Goodyear, AZ
