Meet us at our office at 9 am the day of your full-day rafting adventure. Get suited up in your river gear and get ready to tackle a full day of exceptional white water. Class III-IV rapids mingle with gorgeous scenery on this stretch of the Upper Salt River. Stop for a hot steak, chicken, and veggie fajita lunch at the same location you will camp later in the day. After lunch, you’ll hit more fast-paced rapids before hopping on our shuttle back to your vehicle. Here you will pack up all of our overnight gear and head back to camp. Set up your tent while our guides cook you a freshly prepared and delicious dinner. Relax under the stars and get a restful night’s sleep before waking up early to a hot breakfast. After breakfast, we will shuttle you back to your vehicle so you can take off to your next thrilling destination.
If you are looking for a more isolated and truly scenic getaway, consider diving deeper into the spectacular Salt River Wilderness on a 2 Day Expedition, or a 3 Day, 4 Day, or 5 Day trip.
