Description

The Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park is one of the premier whitewater rafting trips in the world. Absolutely stunning scenery combined with riotously excessive whitewater make for an unforgettable experience.

Waits for permits to run the river is up to 15 years at the present time, so you really need to use a commercial guide service. Dozens of them are available.
