Fall in Love With Spring in the Desert

Our multi-day Salt River whitewater rafting trips take you from the White Mountains, through Salt River Canyon, and into the Sonoran Desert. 

Spending two to five days rafting the Salt River is an Arizona tradition done in March, April, and May when temperatures are warm but not too hot, animal activity in Salt River Canyon is at its peak, and the Sonoran Desert shines with vegetation. 

The Journey

Arizona’s Salt River descends from the White Mountains east of Phoenix. This upper stretch of the Salt River offers challenging rapids and the inspiring beauty of a truly unique setting. 

Fully explore Salt River Canyon, with its beaches, unique geology, and huge variety of plants, animals, and bird life. Come see why the Salt River Canyon is one of the Southwest’s hidden treasures.

Flow through oak and juniper woodlands down 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.
