This rafting trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon impacts many levels of intellect and stimulates a wide range of emotions. Descriptive words fail and superlatives seem superfluous. We are grateful for the opportunity and ability we have to offer trips in this sacred place.

The trips in the Grand Canyon are much more than floating on the river and running the rapids. We spend a lot of time hiking the side canyons, increasing your opportunity to immerse yourself in and ponder this great natural wonder.

Our Grand Canyon schedule includes an eight day motorized trip using 35' pontoon rafts carrying up to 12 passengers each and running 280 miles from Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek, or South Cove/Lake Mead, and a fourteen day oar powered trip that covers the same portion of the river and utilizes 18' rafts being rowed by our guides and carrying 4 passengers each.

Two shorter oar powered options are available: the six day "upper" portion of the 14-day trip running 87 miles from Lees Ferry to Phantom Ranch or the nine-day "lower" portion of the 14-day trip running 193 miles from Phantom Ranch to Diamond Creek or South Cove/Lake Mead.

The six day "upper" trip option requires a strenuous 10-mile, 5000 vertical foot uphill hike out of the canyon. The nine-day "lower" trip option requires a strenuous 10-mile, 5000 vertical foot downhill hike into the canyon, both between the South Rim Village and Phantom Ranch. You need, at a minimum, to be in good general health and prepared for this hike if you choose the six or nine day trip.
