The alluring river surrounded by ponderosa pines and juniper trees with the steep canyon walls are sure to capture your heart.  Picture perfect scenery is all around you, this alone makes a trip down the Grand Canyon worth it. You’ll find yourself captivated by the beauty that seems to engulf you.

  1. Interested sometime in April, 2017 for four people on the 8 day trip. Are there water release dates or what suggestions would you have for a booking during that month?

  2. Allison, you said it all, but my experience was even better! The picture of cold water splashing, gives me fond memories of the best trip I ever took in my life! You and Grand Canyon Expeditions made that happen for me, my husband, and brother. Thanks from all of us !

  3. I really like the idea of seeing the true beauty of nature. I really get bummed out living in the city. I can not even see the stars at night. It would be nice to get out of the city for a few days and connect with nature. I’ll talk to my wife about taking a trip soon.

      Hi Brian- Every month has its perks. In April and May, flowers are blooming and baby animals are out and about. In June and July, it really starts to warm up and it’s a great time to take family trips. August is the start of monsoon season and you can see rim falls, absolutely incredible. In September, the colors start to change and it begins to cool down.

      It is really personal preference and what Mother Nature has up her sleeve. If you like the heat June, July and August are the months for you. If you prefer cooler temps April, May or September might be for you.

      Basically, anytime you’re in the Grand Canyon it’s magical.

  4. My friends and I have been thinking of spending our summer vacation in Grand Canyon. Since it is Betty’s 23rd birthday, we are planning to surprise her for a Grand Canyon rafting trip. Months ago, she has been talking about trying this all along, little did she know, we are doing this on her special day. It’s interesting that you said the scenery is just so captivating, which makes the trip worth it.
