Visitors to Las Vegas can enjoy a whitewater rafting package with the Hualapai Rivers Runners in a convenient and thrilling day trip! Passengers board an air-conditioned van that will transport them to Hualapai Lodge in Peach Springs, Arizona, where Hualapai River Runners will be on hand to provide transfers to the raft launch site. Passengers then board an eight-person motorized river raft, designed specifically for navigating the Colorado River. All Hualapai River Runner guides are fully certified and provide fascinating insight into the ever-changing waters of the Colorado River and the west rim of the Grand Canyon. Many of the guides have spent their lives learning the features of the river and are highly skilled at maneuvering the class 4 to 7 rapids guests may encounter along the way. Each raft will make a stop along the riverbank so that passengers may enjoy a nature hike and lunch. The 5.5 hour whitewater adventure wraps up at Grand Canyon West along the riverbank. Guests will board a helicopter for an exciting flight that ascends 4,000 feet through the canyon and lands at Grand Canyon West airport. After an action-packed day of adventure, passengers will return to Las Vegas with memories to last a lifetime!
