How does one describe the indescribable? I read five books in preparation from Powell's account to the Emerald Mile to Native American History. My heart was pounding when I considered our precious family at risk on Crystal or Lava Rapids and how I might feel about their safety as we plunged into their midst. I had special concerns for my...

We had an amazing 4.5 day motorized GC rafting trip with WRA, starting at Phantom ranch boat beach. The 10 mile hike down Bright Angel Trail was both scenic, and quite challenging due to the high temps (130F in the sun). Our advise to others is bring LOTS of water, food, and good walking poles as this will make the... More

Our family of 17 took a 6 night motorized trip. All agreed that the guides expertise including running rapids, hikes, activities for ages 11-72, and cooking fabulous meals including two birthday and one 50th anniversary cake exceeded our expectations. Thanks for the memories.

Our family just flew out of the Grand Canyon today. 16 of us embarked on a 8 day power boat trip down with Wilderness River Adventures. From day one WRA brought the right people with the right knowledge to the right place. Our family, which is well traveled and well fed all agreed, there was very little we would change... More

We had never been to the Grand Canyon and after much research decided to go out of our comfort zone and take a motorized eight day river rafting trip down the Colorado River. We chose Wilderness River Adventures and were extremely pleased. Our guides, Carrie, Brett, Siobhan, and Tyler, had every part of our adventure perfectly orchestrated. They navigated the... More

We have done 9 rafting trips in the last 25 years with the folks from WRA . Every trip is unique. The guilds have always been great, the food is awesome, the side hikes are stupendous and the memories are priceless. I would book a rafting trip with them every year if I had the time. Our favorite trip is... More

Our 8 day motorized Colorado River trip with Wilderness River Adventures through the Grand Canyon was absolutely a wonderful experience filled with exciting rapids, beautiful canyon walls and sandy beaches. We want to thank our River Guides, Carrie, Brett, Siobhan and Tyler. Along with navigating the raft, preparing the meals, setting up camp spots and tending to blisters, aches &... More

Organisation cannot be faulted. Crew were wonderful; Jefe, Wilbur, YTD, Glen, Christine, Chongo, Brenda, and Taylor, informative and great fun as well as being wonderful cooks. One of us has... More

I went on an 8-day motorized rafting trip led by Zack Chappel, an experienced and exceptional river guide. His knowledge of all of the nooks and crannies of the magnificent Grand Canyon, his inimate knowledge of the Colorado River made this trip more than... More

This was our second time doing the 4 1/2 day lower canyon motor rafting trip with Wilderness River Adventure and both times were totally amazing. We began the trip with a 9+ mile hike into the canyon on Bright Angel Trail to meet our boat crew at the bottom at Phantom Ranch Boat Beach. We also opted for the mule... More
