Description

The Colorado River through the last third of Grand Canyon National Park is an excellent rafting or kayaking trip. Great scenery and challenging whitewater are the rule in a very isolated setting.

This segment of the Colorado River is not as dramtic as the run through the main portion of the park, but it is stuning nonetheless. It is also possible to obtain a permit within a reasonable time and fees for rafting companies are much less expensive.
