Multi-Day trips allow you to see a staggering amount of beautiful canyon scenery. A large portion of the multi-day trips on the Upper Salt River are in remote wilderness areas that cannot be accessed via vehicle, but are easily accessible from a raft. You will see areas that you likely will never have another chance to see.

Experience 5-Star Camping

It is a rare experience going camping and allowing somebody else to do nearly all of the work without feeling guilty, but that is exactly what our guests experience on multi-day trips. Kick back and relax while the guides cook your meals and leave you free to take in the beauty of Arizona.

Have Time for Other Activities

A multi-day trip allows you to take time to do extra activities in addition to rafting. On a multi-day trip, it is easy to take some time to enjoy some excellent river fishing, or explore the incredible canyon on a hike. If relaxation is more of a priority for you, it is easy to take some time and relax next to the campfire.




Sleep Under Billions of Stars

The remoteness of the Upper Salt River puts it in a pristine location for stargazing. With virtually no light pollution the stars are endless, bright, and provide a truly breathtaking sight. Whether you prefer sleeping in a tent or under the stars, there will undoubtedly be ample time to enjoy the night sky.

Bond With Your Family and Friends

Speaking from experience, few things bring people together the same way that a multi-day wilderness trip does. The special thing about wilderness trips is that you are completely present. There are no distractions, just you, your friends and family, and the canyon.
