The Ultimate Grand Canyon Vacation
In the grandest canyon of the Colorado River, experience the excitement, serenity, joy and enchanting beauty of the river as it transforms this divine chasm and those who venture down it. Your Grand Canyon rafting vacation covers 188 miles in 6 or 7 days, each day descending deeper into geologic time. The Grand Canyon is ever-changing, with massive walls that step back to expose eons of natural history, at one place dark and narrow, and at another lush with waterfalls thundering hundreds of feet in luminous free fall.
Daily side hikes lead you to sparkling streams, pristine pools, green fern glens, and ancient Anasazi ruins. The astounding scenery through Grand Canyon National Park is enhanced by the thrill of over 60 whitewater rapids where Western's unique J-Rig rafts will give you maximum excitement and comfort.
This is the most famous rafting trip in the world. It is also our most physically demanding and rewarding trip. Spending a week living in the outdoors is a life-changing experience but it requires preparation and physical capability on the part of the participants. Please review this information before booking this trip, or call our helpful staff with any questions you may have.
We run the 7-day trip in April and September when there is shortened daylight to give our guests more time on the river. The 7-day trips in June or July are more physically demanding due to longer daylight hours and heat. They may have the potential for additional hiking opportunities.
