Absolute Canyon Adventure
Absolute Canyon Adventure, Grand Canyon Vacations



Your one day Grand Canyon whitewater adventure begins early with either a 5:30AM pick up in Flagstaff or a 6:15AM pick up in Williams, AZ (50 miles south of the Grand Canyon South Rim entrance or 29 miles west of Flagstaff).  For pick up in Williams or Flagstaff, directions and address will be emailed to you with your confirmation.

You are then transported along historic Route 66 toward the rugged trail where you descend to the bottom of the canyon to the Colorado River. Once you arrive at the river your river guides will meet you to take you on a 50 mile white water rafting trip experiencing up to level 3.5 rapids (on the North American rapid scale). Mid way through the trip as the canyon walls surround and inspire you, the river is mostly smoothwater. The series of rapids are not extreme and are very moderate (please note, age limit restrictions of 8 years old and up only). During your river journey, your river guide will take you to a few pristine beaches along the Colorado River for relaxation and great photo taking.  The first stop is Travertine Falls...approx a 5-10 minute walk from your raft to a refreshing and unique natural spring waterfall.Inner_Canyon_RIver_5

A deli style lunch is served to you during one of your stops along the river. Soft drinks, water, snacks and cookies are also included.  At the end of the river journey, a helicopter is waiting to fly you up to the Western rim (approx 15 minute flight to transport you from the river to the rim).

Transportation will be provided back to your car in Williams or Flagstaff and you will return to Williams, AZ at approximately 7:30PM and Flagstaff by 8:00PM.

This comprehensive and fun day is certain to be truly a memorable adventure remembered for years to come!

Dry bags for your day pack (for extra clothing, towels, cameras, etc) are provided on board the raft.Absolute Canyon Adventure
