Things to do in

Horseshoe Bend in Grand Canyon on a sunny day.

Take in the unparalleled scenery, hike, explore waterfalls. Navigate class 5 rapids with the pros.

Let the guides do the rowing or take a turn yourself. Float a rapid and explore ancient Native American cave drawings.

Sleep out under the stars or tucked away in a tent.

Let your outfitter do all the cooking and heavy lifting! Enjoy the stars, sunshine and time off the grid. This is an amazing unique experience you will remember for a lifetime.

Enjoy games and stories in the evening in your camp. Discover local Plants and Animals. See sunrise and sunset on the rim of the canyon and maybe catch your shadow in the moonlight.

This is a great trip for families, couples or even solo adventure travelers who want to be part of a bigger group. There is a minimum age limit depending on the trip you choose.

Places to eat & drink in

Smores sandwich held up in the wilderness.

All meals are provided for you through the outfitter of your choice. Breakfast, lunch and dinner and plenty of snacks.

The food is more sophisticated than you would expect given the rustic cooking situation.

Food allergies can generally be accommodated, so let your outfitter know.
