Arizona Rafting and Kayaking

In most people’s minds Arizona rafting and kayaking trips usually begin and end with the Colorado River through Grand Canyon. The Colorado River offers trips from one to 18+ days and it is one of the classic multi-day whitewater trips in the world. Equally worthy, are its unparalleled side-hikes and incredible views. However, there is more to boating in Arizona than just the Grand Canyon.

The Salt, Little Colorado and Verde Rivers are all worth a visit. In addition, those running the Colorado River can enjoy a little punishment by carrying their kayaks up Tapeats Creek and Havasu Creek.
