Lower Grand Canyon June 1st - June 10th 2018
The lower section of Grand Canyon is not only beautiful, but it is also home to some of the more formidable whitewater in North America. Over the first few days of this rafting trip you will run some of the most famous rapids on the Colorado River. As you continue downstream, the big whitewater will be more spaced out, leaving many opportunities to explore off the river and soak in the quieter places. As if a final crescendo to an already spectacular trip, you will run Lava Falls on your final day on the water.
