Go Wild on the Salt River this SpringDue to low snowpack, Arizona’s Salt River will not be running in 2022. We are optimistic that we will be able to run the Salt River rafting trip in 2023!
If you're aching to get on the beautiful Salt River and explore the majestic Sonoran Desert, make sure you book a trip for next year.
Recent rainfall has reshaped the river in parts, making for new turns, new canyon views, and new adventures for those who've rafted the Salt River before.
Arizona's River OasisLess than an hour outside of America’s fifth-largest city is a watery playground in a region known for a lack of water. Fed by high-altitude springs and streams a hundred miles to the northeast, the Salt River flows down from the mountains and through Phoenix, Arizona, before it joins the Gila River.
The Salt River runs through the Sonoran Desert, whose unique beauty stuns everyone who visits. Spanning 100,000 square miles, the Sonoran Desert stretches through parts of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico and is the wettest, hottest, and most biodiverse desert in North America.
New and Exciting FeaturesBegin your Salt River whitewater adventure February 26th through May in the Fort Apache Indian Reservation and explore the vast number of side canyons and follow creeks to their hidden pools through the Upper Canyon, Middle Canyon and Lower Canyon of the Sonoran Desert.
Embrace the transformation into “river time”, a state of mind only achieved on the river, allowing yourself to contemplate the diverse layers of rock or count the arms of a giant saguaro cactus. Spend evenings with family or friends playing games on secluded sandy beaches. In the morning enjoy the warmth of a hot cup of coffee as you watch the sunrise.
