Grand Canyon Multi-Sport Raft and Ranch
On this special Grand Canyon adventure, you will fly from Las Vegas to the Bar Ten Ranch on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Your overnight stay at the Bar Ten will include lunch and dinner the first day and breakfast the second morning. You will also have access to all of the ranch’s facilities and activities, including horseback riding, horseshoes, hiking, skeet shooting, and evening entertainment. ATV rides and helicopter tours are available at an extra cost and can be purchased at the ranch. On the 2nd morning, you will helicopter down to the Colorado River to begin the rafting portion of your trip. While on the river, you will run big rapids, hike to interesting historical and geological sights, play in waterfalls, and experience the wonder of a star-filled night sky from our campsites on the shores of the river. Meals begin with lunch the first day and conclude with lunch the last day – all of them prepared and served by your friendly, capable guide staff. The trip will end the 3rd afternoon on our motorized rafting expedition and the 4th afternoon on the non-motorized rafting option at Pearce Ferry on upper Lake Mead. Transportation back to Las Vegas will be provided by van or motorcoach. You can expect to be back in Las Vegas around 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Should you choose a motorized trip you will travel aboard a 37-foot motorized raft. Each raft accomodates about 12 passengers plus crew. Generally there are two rafts on each trip. We feel our motorized rafts are the best in the Grand Canyon. They are roomy and comfortable. In between rapids you can walk around, lean back on the side tubes, or even stretch out on the flat deck area at the front of our rafts. These boats carry everything you will need for the entire trip.
Our 18-foot row rafts accomodate 4-5 passengers plus the guide who rows the boat.
Our Paddle Rafts hold 6-8 passengers plus a guide who steers the raft. On our "Paddle Trips" guests paddle all of the time, on our "Rowing Trips" a paddle raft is available on a rotational basis.
A Dory is available on many of our Grand Canyon rowing trips. A Dory holds 2-4 people and gives a great ride through the rapids.
To many people the off-river hiking is as spectacular as the river corridor itself. We specialize in off-river hiking on all of our river expeditions. We are certain you will see places on our expeditions most river travelers miss.
Upon arrival, each participant will be given a large water-proof bag for clothing and personal items. Another water-proof bag will contain your provided sleeping bag, foam Paco Pad, and a large plastic ground tarp. Our water-proof bags are 30 inches high and have a diameter of 14 inches.
Each participant will also receive an ammo can. It is always readily accesible during the day and is the best place to keep sunscreen, cameras, notebooks, etc.
Our Kitchen includes everything we need to make delicious food. Dutch Ovens, Fire Pans, Propane Stove, Tables, Drink Coolers, and Under-Table Tarps to help us "Leave No Trace." Our boats carry everything we need for the entire trip.
Cots are provided for all guests on our "Motorized Rafting" expeditions.
Our sleep kit includes a fresly laundered sleeping bag. Our sleeping bags are made in the USA by Wiggy Inc. Wiggy also makes sleeping bags for the US Airforce.
We supply tents from Kelty & ALPS, but generally the night sky is so spectacular that most people want to sleep out under the stars.
We supply camp chairs on all of our rafting expeditions.
A handwash device is set-up at lunch and in camp. It is mandatory for guests to wash hands before meals and after using the bathroom.
One of our toilets is always enclosed by a roomy yellow tent. It allows privacy as well as a place to change your clothes.
Our specially designed toilet makes the fear of using camp toilets go away. It is the most sanitary and clean toilet ever to be used on an outdoor expedition. It has a fly proof lid and utilizes a special chemical along with specially designed plastic bags that allow it to be set-up clean everyday. It has the ability to hold solid waste as well as urine. Along with the toilet, Lysol and toilet paper are always located inside the tent.
