We had an awesome time and met really nice people. If you want to take some time off in the nature, with epic views and an adventurous note, do it! No worries about animals you hardly see them. The guides do their best to make the trip perfekt. A once in a lifetime experience.

Amazing scenery, wonderful food and fantastic service were the highlights of this trip. Our guides, Evan and Nick were the best, both on the raft and onshore.... More

Just completed a 7 day whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado river in the Grand Canyon. It was an adventure of a lifetime. Food was exceptional even with a little sand mixed in! Our river guides went over the top to provide the best river experience for the group.
