The Grand Canyon - As Good as it Gets
On your Wilderness River Adventures trip you'll experience moments of pure thrill, times of absolute serenity, a feeling of togetherness with your group and a deep connection with nature-all of which combine to create a truly life-changing experience. You'll learn about the history and geology of the mighty Colorado River. You'll make wonderful new friends and form bonds that can last a lifetime. And you'll do it all under the guidance and experience of the best guides in the business.
The Adventure Begins
Each day, you'll wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, and the sounds of rushing water mingled with the murmur of sleepy voices echoing through the canyon walls. Breakfast is hot and hearty-or as light as you want. After filling up, the group will form a "bucket line" to help load the gear back on the boats. Then the Colorado River beckons and you're off once again to experience a day of adventure as you continue on your journey onward.
Immersed in Nature
You'll enjoy the spectacular white water rapids and stretches of calm water, encouraging you to relax in the warm sun and enjoy breathtaking scenery. When lunchtime comes, you'll create your sandwiches, grab a cold drink and relax with book-or perhaps hike or fish-before shoving off again for an afternoon of surprises.
Settling in for the Night
Late afternoon finds you at camp for the evening. As your crew sets up the camp kitchen, everyone finds their ideal camp spot and sets up their home for the night. You'll relax with a cool drink and hors d' oeuvres and get better acquainted with your fellow river companions-as dinner sizzles on the grill. After a mouthwatering dinner and experiencing a gorgeous canyon sunset, you'll join in the conversation of the group, and listen to the quiet of the canyon as you settle into your sleeping bag under a blanket of stars.
