Overview

Western River Expeditions - Day Trips are the best commercial, all-inclusive, rafting expeditions through the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River. 6 & 7 day trips through the Grand Canyon begin at Lee's Ferry Arizona (river-mile "0"). A flight from Las Vegas to Marble Canyon is provided, where you will meet your guides. 6 & 7 day trips end at Whitmore Wash, several miles below Lava Falls Rapid with a helicopter flight out to Bar 10 Ranch on the north rim of Grand Canyon. 3 & 4 day trips begin at Whitmore Wash (river-mile 188) with a 7 minute helicopter flight from Bar 10 Ranch. 4 day guests will enjoy 1 night of ranch activities before the helicopter flight into the canyon. Flight destinations in and out of Bar 10 Ranch are Las Vegas and Marble Canyon. 3 & 4 day trips end at Lake Mead. A jetboat speeds guests to Pearce Ferry where a charter bus will then take them past Hoover Dam to Las Vegas.
