Spend a minute out in the canyon, kayaking down the Colorado River.

A Colorado River expedition offers many opportunities to witness the passing of time, seasonal changes, and current conditions. We take pleasure in the journey. It's the joy of the ride, the sight of wildlife, the smell of rain, the roar of rapids, the endless night sky, and the unity we experience: that oneness between us, the river, and the canyon that makes running this river so special.

There are different river trip opportunities through Grand Canyon National Park. Learn more: http://www.nps.gov/grca/planyourvisit/whitewater-rafting.htm
