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 over the Canyon to Bar 10 Ranch, where you will say your goodbyes

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 and veering off into a hidden side canyon 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


FOR BOOKINGS IN 2019: A portion of the price of your trip is paid to the Federal Government as a franchise fee in exchange for the privilege of operating in the National Park. In 2019, we anticipate operating under a new contract with the National Park Service, and as such this fee may change slightly. We reserve the right to adjust our price to match increases to this fee. Any changes to price will be detailed when your final payments are due 120 days prior to your launch date.

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, Marble Canyon or Page

“Fantastic trip for all ages and fitness levels”

I did the one week motorized Grand Canyon tour with hikes. Impeccable staff who are kind, friendly, patient, easy going and know everything about the canyon. Group I was with was great as well. Food was surprisingly good too!
