Grand Canyon Itinerary
Arrive in Las Vegas, NV and stay the night.
Meet the shuttle driver in the lobby of the designated hotel at 4:45 a.m. A few grab-and-go breakfast items will be available for all guests. You should be dressed for the river and have only your river gear with you. We will promptly shuttle you from the hotel to your 1-hour charter flight. Your guides will greet you when you land in Marble Canyon. There will be a continental breakfast and orientation. You will then board our shuttles for a short ride to the launch point at Lees Ferry where you’ll pack your duffel bag into the provided dry bags before heading down the river.
Typical Morning Experience – As the sun peeks over the canyon walls, you’ll hear a guide call “Coffee!” That’s your cue to head to the kitchen and grab a cup of joe and get ready for the day. A short while later, guides will call you to breakfast. Breakfast menus include traditional favorites such as made-to-order omelets, pancakes, French toast, sausage, and bacon. After breakfast, quickly finish packing up your campsite and personal gear and bring your bags to the rafts. Once the guides have packed up the kitchen, everyone helps reload all the gear. Then you are off for a day of adventure on the mighty Colorado River!
On the River – As you start down the river, the serenity and beauty of the canyon capture you and the excitement builds as you anticipate running the first rapid of the day. Rain gear is a good idea for early morning rafting. Your day consists of running rapids, listening to canyon interpretation from your guides, and stopping for exploration of side canyons. Each guide has unique stories to tell about the canyon so make sure to switch rafts during your trip. Lunch is typically a quality deli spread. After lunch, the afternoon is filled with more rapids and spectacular scenery. You may take a hike, or sometimes two, as there are many incredible places to enjoy in the canyon. Hikes are to a variety of destinations: a beautiful vista, a stream or waterfall, an archaeological site, or a sandy beach to toss a Frisbee and enjoy some leisure time.
Typical Camp Experience – In the late afternoon, you pull into camp and the rafts are unloaded by the group “duffel line”. Then you find your camp spot for the night – all camping gear is provided. You can set up a tent or sleep in the open air. The guides hustle to set up the kitchen and an important part of camp, the scenic bathroom area. Once your campsite is set up, enjoy sitting by the river or wander over to the kitchen for appetizers. Camp chairs are set near the kitchen area, so guests can chat and watch the river guides do their magic. Soon a fresh and delicious riverside meal will be ready for your dining pleasure! Dinner menus include hearty options such as grilled chicken, steak, and fajitas with fresh salads, side dishes and desserts. As the day winds down, sit and watch a beautiful sunset, reflect on the day, or join in a conversation with other guests. At the end of the evening, head to your campsite for a restful sleep under a canopy of brilliant stars.
After breakfast on the river, a breathtaking helicopter ride will take you out of the canyon to the Bar 10 Ranch where you’ll likely have time for a shower before boarding a plane back to Las Vegas. A shuttle will then drop off at the designated hotel and Harry Reid International Airport (LAS). Flights out of Las Vegas should be scheduled after 4:30 p.m. on this final day. Our bus must go to the airport immediately after dropping guests off at the hotel. If you have luggage stored at the hotel, you’ll need to factor in extra time to retrieve your bags and then arrange transportation to Harry Reid International Airport on your own.
This timing typically works well, but due to the remote nature of this trip and multiple modes of transportation, we cannot guarantee our exact return time back to Las Vegas, Nevada.
