Explore the Salt River Wilderness From a Raft

Come see why the Salt River Canyon is one of the Southwest’s hidden treasures!

Choose from half-day and full-day whitewater rafting trips to rafting trips up to five days long. 

Many Phoenix and Tucson residents join us each spring on our most popular trip—a full-day rafting adventure starting near the Highway 60 bridge between Globe and Show Low, Arizona. 

To fully explore Salt River Canyon, with its beaches, unique geology, and a huge variety of plants, animals, and birdlife, consider an overnight whitewater rafting adventure from two to five days long. 

Salt River rafting rapids are rated class III and IV. The Salt River drops an average of 25 feet-per-mile for over 50 miles through rocky, secluded canyons. 

The river flows through oak and juniper woodlands into stunning Lower Sonoran Desert vegetation, with giant multi-armed saguaro cactus and a diversity of other vegetation. 

Several side canyons reveal oasis-like microhabitats that are a lush reprieve from the prickly cactus environment. 

Excellent scenic riverside campsites are abundant and accessible only by raft. Raft the Salt River today for a truly unique experience you are sure to never forget.
