NOTE: Use this weather forecast only as a general guide. As your trip will span miles of river, this forecast from the nearest major weather station may not be indicative of the entire region where your trip will take place. Weather in the canyon may vary greatly from the surrouding cities.

TIP: Since weather conditions can be unpredictable and river water in the Grand Canyon is 52°, we recommend having a two-piece rainsuit available during the day. You may wish to fold it tightly and keep it in your personal day-use dry bag. (See recommended packing list).

sun review
Incredible, breathtaking, the most magical place on earth. I wasn’t sure how this vacation would stack up to others, but after spending 6 days in that canyon it was without a doubt the best vacation of my life. I don’t think I would be saying that were it not for our fabulous guides. If you are thinking about taking this trip do it. Whether you love being outdoors or love air conditioning and email like myself you will love this trip. Thanks everyone for great food, fun, family, and friends.
