Arizona River Runners adds New Grand Canyon Rafting – Spring 2010 - “Hikers Special” to Rafting Schedule

(Grand Canyon, Arizona) - Enjoy the Canyon in a whole new way as the spring bloom adds even more color and beauty to an already amazing landscape. Those willing to hike more will be treated to additional breathtaking viewpoints and unforgettable side-canyon experiences as this special three-part trip is available to guide travelers into the lesser-seen side of the Grand Canyon. With extra time each day passengers will experience the astounding views of hidden waterfalls, ancient Indian ruins and magnificent overlooks. The Colorado River provides not only the excitement of the biggest whitewater in North America but you can also savor calm moments on the river to reflect and renew.

Arizona River Runners is offering three new spring trips! All three trips will allow you more time for additional side-canyon hiking and discovery in the milder temperatures of the desert in April. Exploring the Grand Canyon by river is an experience unlike any other. This is the only time these special trips are being offered during the 2010 season!

April 3-14, 2010, 12-day motor powered trip. This 12-day/11-night adventure travels a total of 225 miles through the Grand Canyon. The trip begins at Marble Canyon, and ends at Diamond Creek. This trip discovers the rush of excitement from rafting the Colorado River whitewater. Escape completely on a worry-free vacation with no schedules and no stress - where time stands still!

April 3-8, 2010, 6-day motor powered trip. You can experience 87 river miles during your 6-days and 5-nights of some of the most spectacular views and gorgeous sandstone rock formations of the upper Canyon. On day six you will start the 7.5 mile final hike out of the Canyon on the Bright Angel Trail to the South Rim. Great trip for those wanting more hiking and it fits perfectly into a weeklong vacation.

April 8-14; a 7-day motor powered trip. After an exhilarating 7.5 mile morning hike from the South Rim to the river just below Phantom Ranch you will spend the next week exploring the 138 river miles to Diamond Creek. You will have the opportunity for more off-river time to take in the spectacular vistas and side stream hikes. This trip is great for those who realize that you not only enjoy the spectacular rapids of the “inner gorge”, but also the many sights there are to explore along this section of the Grand Canyon corridor.
