Before you begin your three day exploration of Grand Canyon, enjoy an overnight stay at Bar 10 Ranch
on the Grand Canyon rim complete with horseback riding and cowboy entertainment. After your ranch
stay, youâ€™ll experience a spectacular helicopter ride down to the Colorado River. On this section of the Grand
Canyon, the Colorado Riverâ€™s famous whitewater, though still exciting, is a bit tamer and the scenery is
astounding. Massive sandstone cliffs conjure up imaginary shapes. Hidden waterfalls and pools carve
their way down to the river. Wildlife is abundant, with frequent sightings of elusive Blue Heron, soaring
eagles, and majestic Big Horn sheep. At night, the walls unveil a heaven of innumerable stars
overlooking the Grand Canyon. To top it all off, Westernâ€™s Grand Canyon four-day rafting vacations
feature easy access from Las Vegas, Nevada.
This was an incredible trip, full of firsts! My first helicopter ride, first time whitewater rafting, first time sleeping in the open under the stars and seeing the Milky Way! The guides were the best! Very knowledgeable and helpful, kind, and very good cooks! We did a lot of laughing! I enjoyed every minute, and hope to come back for the 6-day trip soon!
