Planning Your Trip
Your Trip Begins and Ends in Las Vegas
Our eight, fourteen and sixteen day expeditions begin and end in Las Vegas, Nevada. Be sure to arrive the afternoon or evening the day before to your river trip. Las Vegas is served by many major airlines, making travel arrangements easy.
Our river trips end on the eighth, fourteenth or sixteenth day at Pearce Ferry, where a bus will be waiting to pick you up. You will be back in Las Vegas in the evening, giving you an option of staying in Las Vegas or scheduling a late evening flight.
Where to stay that night.
For your convenience we have partnered with the Residence Inn Las Vegas Hughes Center as our preferred hotel. Of course you do not have to stay here but this is the location you will be picked up and have a pre trip meeting the night before your departure. Grand Canyon Expeditions will make your room reservation for the night before and the night after your trip. If you wish to book extra nights before or after your trip, reservations should be made directly with the Residence Inn by calling 702-650-0040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pre Trip Meeting
Our representative will meet you at the hotel the evening prior to your trip at a pre arranged time to answer last minute questions, and to give you waterproof river bags in which to pack your clothing. If you are driving to Las Vegas, you may leave your vehicle at the hotel for the eight, fourteen or sixteen days while you are on the river.
What should you bring
Travel light, travel happy! One of the most appealing aspects of a Grand Canyon river trip is that you need to bring very little with you to be comfortable. The climate in the canyon is mild, and just a few changes of clothes are needed. We supply all camping equipment, waterproof river bags, and waterproof camera boxes, and these are included in the cost of your trip. (a detailed list of recommended clothing and personal items to bring on the trip will be sent when reservations are confirmed.)
The following are included in the cost of your trip:

Make Your Reservation Early
An early reservation is your best assurance of getting the date you want, so we encourage you to make reservations as soon as possible. We recommend that you call our office before sending us your reservation form to confirm that the date you want is available. If it is, we'll be glad to hold your reservation for 10 days while your deposit is en route by mail. However, cancellations do occur, so we can frequently accommodate late reservations.
