GCE Eats – A Small Guide to Meals on the River

Grand Canyon Expeditions - Taylor Grand Canyon River Rafting, Rafting Tips 4 Comments

A lot of our guests worry about what they are going to eat on the river.

“We’re camping, aren’t we? What are meals like?” To most people camping consists of hot dogs, quick meals and snacks that are easy to make with no effort. Not when you travel with Grand Canyon Expeditions; GCE travels with an extraordinary kitchen setup. We have a stove with multiple burners, a reliable sanitary hand wash station, a charcoal grill and couple of tables. All of the GCE guides are great cooks and great dutch oven bakers as well.

A lot of our meals are things you wouldn’t expect on the river. Breakfast can be pancakes, bacon and fresh fruit. Lunches range from a deli style sandwich spread to a caesar salad in a wrap. Dinners are where GCE definitely shines though. Spaghetti and meatballs, steak, pork chops, fajitas (this authors favorite night!) and many more foods for you to enjoy!

Are you allergic to something? Vegetarian? Gluten free? No worries! Give our office a call and we can discuss our menu and accommodate your needs. GCE frequently has guests with dietary restrictions – so we can handle anything and are happy to help!

If you have any questions please give us a call at 800-544-2691. You can also contact us online HERE

  1. Four of us from Scotland enjoyed this experience in September 15. The food was amazing from dawn till night time. The freshness and flavours were enhanced by the surroundings and of course the skill of the staff. Thank you David, Marianne, Carol and Stan.

  2. Anyone thinking about GCEX for a trip should jump at the chance. The people are terrific and the food is great👍👍👍😄😄😄

  3. I can’t stop talking about this trip to everyone who asks – and some who don’t. It is so beautiful, so exhilarating, so much fun with terrific people. I could almost bet that it will rise to the top of the “best trip ever”. It has it all in a setting that you can’t find anyplace in the entire world. You will be very well taken care of from every aspect of the trip experience. Put it at the top of your Bucket List and just Go!
