Back by popular demand, the ASC once again has the trip of a lifetime traveling through the heart of the Grand Canyon. Our trip begins with one night in Marble Canyon, Arizona. On Monday morning, we will begin our journey from Lees Ferry where our raft trip originates. Expert guides will travel us through 190 miles of the Grand Canyon in our 37 x 14 motorized raft. Days are filled with side canyon explorations intermingled with the thrills of the rapids which include the famous Crystal, Hermit, Granite and Lava Falls. At night, your bedroll will be spread underneath the stars to observe the heavens above. Our final day will bring us to Whitmore Wash for an early morning helicopter ride to the Canyon rim and our flight back to Las Vegas. Come along and join us on this amazing journey through one of the great Natural Wonders of the World. Each year the Park Services limits the number of people on the River. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime experience.
