3-Day Whitewater Rafting With Arizona River Runners
The shortest rafting trip you’ll find you can do in Grand Canyon National Park is a 3-day trip, and this trip is typically run in and out of Las Vegas. (Grand Canyon Whitewater does not offer a 3-day trip; for info contact our sister company Arizona River Runners at 800-477-7238). This trip blends a Western ranch experience with a whitewater adventure, spending a day and a half at a working ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and then a day and a half rafting whitewater on the Colorado River.
We don’t not offer ANY trips less than 4 days in length within Grand Canyon National Park. Because of the geography of the Grand Canyon (mile-high canyon walls), there are only a few places in the entire Grand Canyon where you can get people and boats on and off the river. All of those spots are a few days apart.
