Rafting the Colorado River
Rafting the Colorado River requires
reservations well in advance. Many different companies offer trips
through the canyon itself, lasting 3 days to 2 weeks. Some trips
are motorized, some are oar powered. Since all rafting on the Colorado
requires a permit, please know when you would like to go. We will
contact all the river concessionaires and help you find the best trip
Native American Red River rafting
is available year around. One and two day trips are available.
Most of the trips depart from
Lees Ferry, Arizona (approximately 2-1/2 hours from the south rim
of the Grand Canyon). We offer partial trips which allow you to
get on or off at Phantom Ranch located at the bottom of the Grand Canyon
National Park South Rim. Requiring a hike in or out, with proper
planning the mule ride up or down is also an option. Most trips
occur between April and October.

concerns or to make your reservations, please email or call the toll free
