As mentioned in our last blog, the winter weather puts our Grand Canyon raft trips on a brief hold. There’s no need to fret, though, because our Grand Canyon expeditions will start back up again in April.
As we wait for the snow to melt and the ice to thaw, we’re already thinking about the adventures to be had this spring and summer. If you’re considering taking a multi day rafting trip, now’s the time to plan. After all, more than a quarter of Americans (28%) participate in — or plan to participate in — white water rafting, so it’s best to book while there’s still room.
Here’s how you can plan your trip in three easy steps.
Step 1: Make a reservation.
The first step in planning your rafting trip is to decide which type of expedition you’re interested in and when you’d like to go. There are eight-day motorized raft trips, 14- to 16-day Dory trips, and special interest trips for you to choose from. They embark all throughout the season, beginning as early as April and continuing through to September. Once you’ve chosen a type of trip, call for a reservation and we’ll assist you through the booking process.
Step 2: Plan your travels.
The Colorado River spans a full 277 miles through the Grand Canyon. To see it all, we start at the Northern end of the Canyon by Lees Ferry and make our way southwest.
Since the Grand Canyon national park may be difficult for some people to get to, we begin and end in the buzzing metropolis of Las Vegas, Nevada, so that travel arrangements are easy for everyone to make. For your personal travel, all you will need to do is get to Vegas. Whether you fly, take a bus, or drive, we will handle the rest: round trip transportation from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is provided in the cost of your trip.
Step 3: Pack your bags and get ready to have the adventure of a lifetime!
Once the travel arrangements are made, you’ll be faced with the most difficult step of the process: waiting anxiously for your trip to begin! We’ll provide the camping gear (sleeping bags and tents) so all you’ll need to bring is personal items and a few changes of clothes. We even provide the meals!
By following these three simple steps, you’ll have planned an unforgettable vacation with minimal effort. If you are one of the 77% of Americans who view outdoor recreation as an important part of their lives, then this trip is for you! We can’t wait to see you on the river this season! Give us a call today…your rafting adventure awaits you.
