Covering 225 river miles, this classic Grand Canyon rafting trip on the Colorado River offers all the scenery, side canyons and whitewater excitement of our full canyon trip. Experience the glories of Marble Canyon, the mysteries of the Inner Gorge, terrific side hikes and Native American ruins, crystalline creeks and waterfalls, cactus gardens and whitewater galore. Grand Canyon whitewater rapids cover the full spectrum of foaming ripples to the notorious churning roar of Lava Falls. We run it all and still have plenty of time to hike and explore the numerous side canyons, which crisscross this magnificent region, each having its own unique attractions, just waiting to be discovered. Along the way, we may encounter canyon wildlife including bighorn sheep, deer, coyote and a variety of birds. Our last night is spent camping in the shattered Hurricane fault zone before we head to Diamond Creek for the conclusion of our Grand Canyon adventure.
