Splash! Grand Canyon Gay & Lesbian White Water Rafting Tour!

White water, red rock, blue sky: Rafting through two billion years of history.

 

 

No geologic feature in America inspires the imagination as does the Grand Canyon. A mile deep, up to eighteen miles wide, and slashing through 2 billion years of rock, the Canyon is viewed from above by millions of visitors each year — but far fewer travel into its depths.

Our rafting trip carries us down the entire 280 miles of the Colorado River, through a hundred whitewater rapids, with a motor to keep us moving so we can relax and enjoy the changing spectacle above us. By day, when we’re not river running you’ll explore the hidden side canyons, hiking among rock sculptures of every color — black, red, blue, and white — and enjoying numerous waterfalls and swimming holes. In the evening, socialize over a tasty dinner as you socialize with others in our small group — just 14 of us, plus two guides. By night, sleep under a canopy of stars, as the river continues its journey of the ages..

Highlights:

  • Plunge through whitewater rapids with such colorful names as Soap Creek and Lava Falls, on a 14-person motorized raft.
  • Enjoy gourmet meals provided by one of the Canyon’s top outfitters.
  • Cool off in a cascading waterfall.
  • Hike to the extraordinarily beautiful Indian ruins at Nankoweap.
  • Lose yourself by hiking up towering side canyons rarely seen by most visitors to the Park.
