Before you begin your three day rafting tour in the Grand Canyon, enjoy an overnight stay at Bar 10 Ranch on the rim of Grand Canyon complete with horseback riding, meals, and cowboy entertainment. After your ranch stay, you'll experience a spectacular helicopter ride down to the Colorado River. On this section of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado River's famous whitewater, though still exciting, is a bit tamer and the scenery is astounding. Massive sandstone cliffs tower in every direction. Hidden waterfalls and pools carve their way down to the river. Wildlife is abundant, with frequent sightings of elusive Blue Heron, soaring hawks, and majestic Big Horn sheep. At night, the walls unveil a heaven of innumerable stars overlooking the Grand Canyon. To top it all off, Western's 4-day Grand Canyon rafting tours feature easy access from Las Vegas, Nevada. Join Western River Expeditions on an incredible and unforgettable Grand Canyon rafting tour.

"This trip puts life back into perspective. It is one of those things that you’ll never forget."
As you'll be rafting down the Grand Canyon for nearly 100 miles, the raft you ride becomes an integral part of your experience in terms of relaxation, whitewater, and ability to move about. While you'll certainly be getting on and off the raft quite a bit every day, your comfort on the raft is important. Western River Expeditions uses a patented raft called the "J-Rig." This raft offers one of the most comfortable rides on a Grand Canyon whitewater rafting trip. You'll find plenty of space to stretch out and relax in the calm sections of the river and one of the most exciting rides in the whitewater stretches. With plenty of seat positions to choose from, you can decide whether you'll ride up front for more action or further back for a calmer experience.
On this Grand Canyon vacation, you'll spend 1 Night at the Bar 10 Lodge and 2 nights on the banks of the Colorado River. On the river portion of your trip, professional river guides cook delicious meals for you and all the camping equipment you need is supplied. This is camping made easy.
Spectacular boatmen and crew! Extremely competent, knowledgeable, informative, attentive, personable; great cooks and terrific senses of humor; they really helped the whole gang of guests come together and enjoy each other as well as the wonders of the canyon!
