Rafting

Exploring the Canyon from the Colorado River is an exciting way to gain an interesting perspective on Arizona's best-known natural wonder. Most trips start out at Lees Ferry near Page, Arizona, but you can choose from several options for types and lengths. Whatever you choose, book early – waiting lists can be lengthy for these popular voyages.

Full-Canyon Trips
Both motorized and oar-powered rafting trips are available. Motorized trips are faster and usually take six to eight days, while oar-powered trips are typically 10 to 14 days. Longer excursions are also available.

Half-Canyon Trips
For a shorter trip, usually four to nine days, a rafting trip through half the canyon may be your best bet. These split trips switch out midway through the canyon, at Phantom Ranch, so you’ll need to plan on either hiking up Bright Angel Trail out of the canyon at the end of your trip, or into the canyon to the ranch at the beginning.

 

One-Day Trips
Available from within the Hualapai Reservation, one-day rafting trips give you an intimate view of the western Grand Canyon.

 

Half-Day Trips
Operating out of the base of the Glen Canyon Dam in Page, half-day trips are a less intensive way to see the canyon – and an easier addition to an already-packed itinerary.
