My1FitLife Grand Canyon Whitewater Rafting Adventure
We launched this Adventure last year and it sold out in 10 minutes, so we knew we needed to get this one back on the books!! Now is your chance to make it happen!
Why not combine the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon with the powerful, exhilarating Colorado River to create the ideal western trip? The Grand Canyon river tour is the premier white water rafting trip in the American West. The eight-night Grand Canyon river tour covers the entire length of the Grand Canyon, beginning at Lee’s Ferry and ending at Lake Mead. This trips combines world class white water with breathtaking scenery to make one unforgettable river experience.
Your trip begins at the Marble Canyon Lodge, in Arizona, where you spend the first night preparing for your trip. That evening you will meet your guide for an orientation meeting where you can ask questions and get any last minute items. You can also purchase beer and wine at Marble Canyon.
The following morning you pack your duffel bag and depart for Lee’s Ferry where the boats will be waiting for you. After your bags are packed on the boat everyone gets on and your rafting trip begins.
For the next seven days you will run exciting rapids like Houserock, Hance, Hermit, Granite Falls, Crystal, Lava Falls, and many more. You will see beautiful side canyons and swimming holes including Little Colorado, Elves Chasm, Deer Creek, Havasu Creek, and Travertine Falls. Each morning you will be greeted by the beautiful song of the Canyon Wren and the smell of hot coffee brewing in the kitchen. Your guide will prepare you a hot breakfast every morning which includes fresh fruit and fruit juice. For lunch you will have sandwiches with all the trimmings. Tour West provides cold water and lemonade at all times as well as candy bars and fruit for snacks during the day. At night all your gear will be unloaded, this includes your personal duffel bag and your cot. While you are setting up your camp your guide will be preparing a hearty dinner of steak and potato or chicken and pasta. Each dinner also has a vegetable with a fresh tossed salad and your choice of dressing. After dinner you are free to explore the canyon or sit on your cot and watch a beautiful sunset and listen to the music of the river. The last 34 miles of your trip are spent traveling between the sheer walls and graceful tiers of the upper stretches of beautiful Lake Mead. At trip’s end, you will be transported to Las Vegas airport by bus.
Your trip meets in Marble Canyon, AZ. You will spend the first night at the Marble Canyon Lodge. Your motel accommodations are included in your package.
We will have an orientation meeting in the evening. The location of the orientation meeting can vary so when you check-in the person at the front desk will let you know where this meeting will be held. At the orientation meeting you will receive some of the gear you will use on the river such as a dry bag which you will load your personal bag into. You are on your own for your dinner this night and breakfast the next morning. There is a small restaurant located at Marble Canyon.
