Grand Canyon Ranch and Raft Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Scenic flight from Las Vegas, NV, to the Bar 10 Ranch

The adventure begins with a scenic flight from Las Vegas, Nevada, to the Bar 10 Ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Your overnight stay at the Bar 10 includes horseback riding, horseshoes, hiking, skeet shooting and evening entertainment.

Day 2
Sensational helicopter flight from the ranch down into the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and starting our journey down river.

Our guides will help everyone get fitted with a life jacket, hand out dry bags, and give the group an orientation about the trip before pushing the boats out into the current and starting our journey down river. 

Day 2 – 3
River rafting through 50 miles of the Lower Granite Gorge

There are about 10 class III rapids on this section of river.  The whitewater is fun and exciting with big splashy waves. 

In addition to the whitewater there will be some off river hikes to natural wonders and waterfalls, and an overnight campout on the banks of the river(with a brilliant night sky star show!). 

Day 3
Last rapid and then meet our jet boat for a speedy run out of the canyon to Pearce Ferry Marina

From Pearce Ferry you return to Las Vegas via motor coach or van.  We furnish all camping equipment(cots, sleeping bags and tents if needed), delicious meals, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages.

3 Day Grand Canyon Adventure

This is the perfect Grand Canyon Adventure for those with limited time.  We also call this trip the “Grand Canyon Ranch and Raft Trip” or “Grand Canyon Multisport Trip” because it includes one night at the Bar 10 Ranch and encompasses a lot of different activities.  The adventure begins with a scenic flight from Las Vegas, Nevada, to the Bar 10 Ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Your overnight stay at the Bar 10 includes horseback riding, horseshoes, hiking, skeet shooting and evening entertainment.

On the 2nd morning, guests experience a sensational helicopter flight from the ranch down into the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where our river crew will meet everyone on the banks of the Colorado River.  Our guides will help everyone get fitted with a life jacket, hand out dry bags, and give the group an orientation about the trip before pushing the boats out into the current and starting our journey down river.

The canyon will gradually deepen as  we move further downstream.  During the trip we will have fun rafting through 50 miles of the Lower Granite Gorge. There are about 10 class III rapids on this section of river.  The whitewater is fun and exciting with big splashy waves.  In addition to the whitewater there will be some off river hikes to natural wonders and waterfalls, and an overnight campout on the banks of the river(with a brilliant night sky star show!).

On the third day you will run the last rapid and then meet our jet boat for a speedy run out of the canyon to Pearce Ferry Marina at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.  From Pearce Ferry you return to Las Vegas via motor coach or van.  We furnish all camping equipment(cots, sleeping bags and tents if needed), delicious meals, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages.

2019 will mark Colorado River & Trail Expeditions 48th year guiding guests through Grand Canyon.  We are the smallest Grand Canyon outfitter and are a family owned company.  Our river guides are very experienced.  Many have been working on the river for over 15 years.  They are happy to share their knowledge about Grand Canyon’s geology, history, and biology.  They are incredible story tellers and genuinely love what they do.  We believe in maintaining top of the line gear, serving delicious meals, and making your trip the best.

In addition to being offered as a motorized 3-day expedition this trip is also offered as a non-motorized 4-day expedition.   The 4-day expedition uses non-motorized rafts and includes an extra day on the river.

Great trip. Extremely well organized. Staff were both professional and friendly. Felt challenged yet safe at all times. The food was very good and plenty of it. Sleeping under the stars with the river roaring by was an experience we will never forget.

Can't praise the guides enough. All great people.....lots of fun. If this is your first time or even if you've done it before, this company was great! They do longer trips but for me, 3 days, 2 nights on the river was perfect. I have many wonderful memories of this awesome raft trip in the Grand Canyon.

I would just like to let you know how much we enjoyed our rafting trip! It was such a spectacular, once in a lifetime trip. Your staff should be commended. Their knowledge of the river and compassion is exceptional. They made this the most amazing trip that we have ever taken. I cannot possibly thank you entire crew enough.

I knew you were an original family run company and I think it showed. It was also part of the reason I chose your group when I started doing the research, as you were always so quick and helpful with your email replies. I figured it was likely to carry through to other parts of your company and it clearly does!

CRATE's gear (rafts, camp gear, etc) is top-notch ... with decades of experience, they definitely have the canyon journey dialed-in. CRATE also pays special attention to the food they serve: with fresh meats from a local butcher and top-notch produce, it makes for fantastic meals from beginning to end.

there is no better vacation than a river trip. I took off my watch and didn't worry about the time for two days, completely unplugged.
