7 Day Grand Canyon

Join us for 7 days and 6 nights as we travel down the Colorado River, exploring the incredible Grand Canyon. Raft 188-miles from Lees Ferry to Whitmore Wash, and experience intense rapids, beautiful hikes, ancient ruins, waterfalls and memorable swimming spots. After each day’s events, enjoy a plentiful and delicious feast made with love by your crew and relax at camp under the glowing stars beyond the canyon walls. On the last day of your trip, take a scenic helicopter ride out of the Canyon to Bar 10 Ranch, where you will say your goodbyes before boarding a fixed wing plane to return to Marble Canyon or to Las Vegas, NV.

What to Expect

A Colorado River trip is an active vacation in a wilderness environment. To ensure the best possible vacation, we recommend showing up with an adventure attitude ready to explore the hidden depths of the Grand Canyon. Days will be spent navigating the mighty Colorado River and veering off into hidden side canyons for a bit of exploring. Nights will be spent camping on sandy beaches or rocky ledges. There are no hotel accommodations or hot showers. The beauty of this type of vacation is the journey and discovery that comes along with it.

Sample Itinerary

Day 0 (before your launch): Arrive at Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon, AZ. Relax and rest for the approaching adventure!

Day 1 & 2: 8:30am, meet our Hatch crew, pack your river bags, and shuttle to the river. Meet guides and listen to safety instruction and learn about the rafts. Enjoy the tour from the guides as your river trip begins. Eat lunch on a beautiful white sand beach and experience your first rapids: Soap and Badger Creek, House Rock and the Roaring Twenties. Pass below Vasey’s Paradise and frolic in Redwall Cavern. Hike to ancient Anasazi granaries or delve into side canyons.

Day 3 & 4: Don your life jacket and get ready to float the Little Colorado River. Begin preparations for larger rapids ahead as Horn, Granite, Hermit, and Crystal offer impressive waves and epic splashes. Perhaps you will stop at Phantom Ranch, Elves Chasm or Deer Creek Falls for more hiking, water play, and views.

Day 5 & 6: Hike up Havasu Canyon and enjoy the turquoise water paradise. Lava Falls signals the end of the journey so prepare to take it all in and appreciate this famous rapid. Sometimes the guides might give you a “second ride”. Unwind at camp and enjoy our home cooked meals, especially those Dutch oven brownies!

Day 7: The day begins early with your helicopter flight commencing around 7:00am where you will catch more than a glimpse of Grand Canyon from above. When you reach Bar 10 Ranch you will board a fixed wing aircraft to return you to Las Vegas.
