Exciting White Water Rafting in Arizona

Our full day trip provides an exciting day of class III and IV rapids as you raft through the beautiful Upper Salt River Canyon. Navigate around Mule Hoof Bend and drop into challenging rapids including Maytag, Grumman and Overboard. Slip through the scenic Narrows as your knowledgeable guide points out the colorful wildflowers throughout the volcanic cliffs. Test your skills with the hot action waves of Exhibition and the infamous Mescal Falls.

Fun, knowledgeable guides, an optional side canyon hike to a hidden waterfall and a riverside lunch of sizzling hot fajitas make for the perfect day on the river. Spend the day creating great memories with family and friends! This unique Arizona getaway is a quick, easy drive from the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas.

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. These multi-day adventures travel through remote canyons full of exciting whitewater and riverside beach campsites.
