Itinerary

Get ready for a great day on the river! We board our river van and head for the river about 45 minutes away. En route your guides will present orientation and safety information. At the river launching site you will receive your river gear including a paddle, a helmet, a lifejacket and a wetsuit. We will launch our boats, practice paddling skills with our guides, and head for the excitement and fun of Slaughter Sluice, Chamberlain Falls and Staircase rapids!

We stop mid-day for a hearty lunch along the river where we have time to enjoy the peace of the remote canyon. The trip continues at a more leisurely pace while still enjoying fun rapids and the awesome granite walls of the wilderness canyon. Our shuttle vehicle will greet us at take-out with beverages for the ride back to your car.

You’ll head for home happy, relaxed and full of memories from a great river trip experience!
