  • Boating down the Colorado River below Havasu Creek in Grand Canyon National Park. NPS  photo by Mark Lellouch.

There are three different river trip opportunities through Grand Canyon National Park. Learn more: http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/whitewater-rafting.htm

While on river trips, we all seek something special for ourselves, our families, and our friends. This might be solitude or camaraderie, or both. Even though we are unique individuals, we visit the river and the canyon for many of the same reasons. By considering the needs of others and by leaving the canyon as pristine as or better than you found it, everyone has the potential to create a positive and safe river experience.
