Grand Canyon's only one-day whitewater trip

One-day rafting trip in Grand Canyon of the Colorado River.

Most people don't know that a one-day whitewater trip is available in the Grand Canyon. Typically a Grand Canyon River trip is thought of as a seven-to-ten-day adventure available only to the rich and famous. However, the Hualapai Nation has opened access across tribal lands for those who would like to experience the wonder of rafting through the Grand Canyon but don't have the time ... or the moolah.

Hiking at Travertine Falls
The adventure includes ground transportation from the Hualapai Lodge in Peach Springs, Arizona -- located on Historic Route 66, whitewater raft trip to trail head for hike up to Travertine Falls, more rafting, lunch at a sandy beach and a helicopter ride out of the canyon to your connection with ground transportation that takes you back to Peach Springs.
Another girl's adventure! Out of the canyon by whirly bird!
I loved the remote canyon experience -- just look at the attached photos! Rafting available from March October.  Make reservations at

Follow the only road to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on the first leg of the adventure.
