A rafting trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon is on many people’s bucket lists. Imagine the blue green of the river contrasting with the reddish brown of the canyon walls.

Historically the summer months have been the prime time for the limited number of commercial whitewater trips available on the Colorado River through Grand Canyon. Arizona River Runners sees this trend returning as demand increases for these Colorado River trips.

If you have a Grand Canyon family rafting trip on your bucket list, now is the time to plan ahead and secure your space for summer 2013.

There are group rates offered for families and corporate groups of 10 or more traveling together.

For a limited time, Arizona River Runners is accepting 2013 reservations at current 2012 prices. To take advantage of this special, you need to act now because it won’t last long.
