Where can I go Whitewater Rafting?

Grand Canyon white water rafting offers spectacular views, plenty of exciting rapids, and a one-of-a-kind experience deep within the canyon. You can enjoy a guided river trip or a self-guided rafting trip, depending upon your expertise. The Grand Canyon white water rapids range from a calm and scenic Class 1 to a wild and even dangerous Class 10.

A few of the places where you can begin your Grand Canyon whitewater adventure:

  • Glen Canyon Dam: For smooth and relaxing floats of one day in length, you can start out from Glen Canyon and move through amazing scenery to Lees Ferry, a little north of Grand Canyon National Park.
  • Lees Ferry: Many river trips start at Lees Ferry, lasting a half-day, full day or up to long 25-day excursions through the entire canyon and braving all the hot spots of whitewater.
  • Phantom Ranch: Hiking to Phantom Ranch is half the fun, but once you start the trip down the Colorado River, it is whitewater rapids and thrills galore. This is the mid-way point for full canyon whitewater trips.
  • Whitmore Wash: Begin your river adventure at Whitmore Wash to head into the final majesty of the lower canyon. 
  • Diamond Creek: Although a popular take-out for Colorado River rafters, you can start a scenic float trip here and make it all the way to Lake Mead.
