Salt River Rafting specializes in guided whitewater river rafting trips in the spectacular 2000' deep Salt River Canyon of Arizona just hours from Phoenix and Tucson.
Arizona's Salt River is the only commercially run class III & IV whitewater raft trip in the Sonoran Desert of the United States. Saguaros, sun, scenery and splashes are guaranteed with every trip!
Located just 2 1/2 hours from Phoenix and 3 hours from Tucson in the Tonto National Forest and on the White Mountain Apache Tribe's ancestral lands lies Arizona's "other Grand Canyon."
Our most popular adventure is the full day raft trip with a delicious beachside grilled lunch and major class III rapids such as Maytag, Overboard, Exhibition and Mescal Falls.
The two day trip takes you into the beautiful white granite gorge with more rapids such as Rat Trap and Granite rapids near the mouth of canyon creek. Three to five day wilderness trips venture into distinctively different gorges within the canyon, and the challenges of class IV rapids such as Black Rock, Devils Pendejo and Quartzite Falls.
