Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon National Park is widely regarded as one of America's top holiday destinations, and for good reason. In addition to being a World Heritage site, the Grand Canyon National Park is also one of the world's Seven Natural Wonders. Given its reputation, it's not surprising that Grand Canyon National Park is the second most visited national park in the United States, being beaten only by the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tenessee.

The Grand Canyon has something for everyone, from adventurous hikes to family attractions. If you're a fitness enthusiast, you'll be happy to know that the Grand Canyon is home to dozens of canyoning and biking trails. Grand Canyon National Park is well-maintained by the U.S. National Park Service, ensuring that most trails are accessible and safe for fit and healthy individuals.


Rafting in the Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park is a world-renowned whitewater rafting destination. With 80 big rapids along the Colorado River, you are guaranteed to have an action-packed vacation! In terms of trip selection, your options for rafting routes will generally depend on two things: the length of your trip and how much of the Grand Canyon you'd like to see.

If you're operating on a tight schedule, you can take a shorter trip through either the Upper Canyon or Lower Canyon. Both of these sections offer plenty of chances to explore and experience the breadth of the Grand Canyon, from its thrilling whitewater rapids to its fascinating geological history. However, please note, both Upper and Lower Canyon trips include a mandatory ascent or descent hike along the famous Bright Angel Trail. If you want to avoid a hike and spend more time on the river, we recommend that you opt for Full Grand Canyon rafting tours.


Alternatively, if you're more interested in family-friendly activities, you can choose to take tours of the Western Canyon. You'll take a flight from Las Vegas to Bar 10 Ranch, where you'll stay the night. During your stay at Bar 10 Ranch in Grand Canyon West, you can partake in a range of local activities, including skeet shooting, volleyball, horseback riding, and ranching demonstrations. The following day, you'll take a short helicopter flight to your put-in point, where you'll then get to experience the excitement of whitewater rafting in the Colorado River.
