This lower section of the Grand Canyon is characterized by its granite gorges, punctuated by massive whitewater adventure and makes for a great rafting trip. All the legendary rapids reside in this lower portion of the canyon; those that hang off the tips of river-rafters tongues, the rapids of folklore… Hermit, Crystal, Lava Falls… are heard echoing from the beginning to the end of this river trip. Hold on to your hats because not only will this be a wild, (yet safe) ride but those shady hats will come in hand for the many epic side-canyon hikes peppered throughout the lower gorge. This trip has every ingredient to make a memorable trip, all it’s missing is you!
Rafting the lower Grand Canyon on our trips involves a 9-mile hike from the South Rim to the Colorado River and are only recommended for those in good physical condition. You can choose between being a passenger or a participant on these whitewater river trips with the option of both Oar Raft and Paddle Boat trips. Reservations should be made well in advance as demand for this world-class adventure is high. Grand Canyon trips are run by affiliates who are authorized Grand Canyon concessionaires.
