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.
A representative will meet guests early in the morning at the Desert Rose Resort. Board the shuttle and journey approximately 5 hours to Marble Canyon, AZ. There is an orientation meeting upon arrival at Lee’s Ferry, the launch point for your expedition. Guests will meet the guides, be assigned two dry bags and a life jacket, and be ready to raft the Colorado River by late morning. Let the adventure 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 within the walls of the Grand Canyon. By mid-morning guests will transfer to a jet boat for a scenic ride through the final miles of the Colorado River. A bus will be waiting at Pearce Ferry to take you to Las Vegas, arriving by mid-afternoon.
