Tired of winter and ready for summer? Raft the first runnable river in the U.S. for spring break! The temperatures this winter have been frigid and many are looking forward to a family spring break trip in Arizona’s warm climate. What better way to spend spring break than to raft the Upper Salt River? Below are some reasons why you should raft the Salt River for your Arizona spring break. 


The “Other Grand Canyon”

The Salt River is Arizona’s best-kept secret. Often referred to as the “other Grand Canyon”, its 2,000ft canyon walls surround you at every angle. Don’t have a week or more to raft the Grand Canyon? The Salt River Canyon is just as beautiful with its spectacular red rock walls, dessert cacti, and wildflowers. Enjoy a half-day, one-day, or multi-day raft trip for you Arizona spring break.

Escape Everyday Life in a Remote Canyon

With all the constant phone calls, text messages, emails, and media in front of you everyday, rafting the Salt River is a great opportunity to step back and spend some quality time with your loved ones. The Salt River is in a remote wilderness area that will allow you to put down the phone and enjoy your Arizona spring break in this beautiful canyon. Enjoy the beautiful scenery while having a good time getting wet head to toe on some Class III “wet and fun” rapids. The kiddos will be happy to take their spring break in such a lovely and warmer climate.
