Lower Canyon Trips
You will need to arrive at the South Rim in Grand Canyon village a day prior to your start date. You will meet your group between 5:30-6 AM on day 1 and hike the Bright Angel Trail to begin your rafting trip. Orientations are either held at the river upon meeting the rafts, or in Flagstaff. Some itineraries will have you meet in Flagstaff 2 days prior and will transport you to the south rim as part of their itinerary, others may also begin in Las Vegas. You will travel from river mile 88 to one of 3 exit points: river miles 188, 225 or 280. On the final day, you will be transported either by vehicle or a helicopter/charter flight back the South Rim, Flagstaff or Las Vegas depending on the outfitter.
Meeting locations vary depending on the itinerary: Las Vegas NV, Flagstaff AZ, or South Rim.
To Meeting Point: Ground and air transportation to these meeting locations are available.
Return from South Rim: Itineraries include a return to the meeting point by way of ground or air transport.
