Arizona Raft Adventures is a family run business operating 6-16 day rafting trips, as a licensed rafting tour operator within Grand Canyon National Park since 1974. Our adventures are both motorized and non-motorized (paddle or oar rafts). We believe that a trip down the mighty Colorado River, through the Grand Canyon is the trip of a lifetime, composed not only of exciting whitewater and world class scenery, but also lots of exploring and hiking in the many wondrous side canyons. Our adventures provide the time to experience it all, so come play with us in Grand Canyon!

My husband & I did this in May. It was fantastic! The guides were all very professional even while having fun. I did learn that whatever they said about the ease or difficulty of a hike, I should take it up a notch. It was an interesting mix of being spoiled and roughing it.

… And you'll want to do it more than once. These guys are the best. Professionals at what they do, they convey a deep love for the canyon and a respect for its resources. They cook great meals and make for a thrilling but comfortable off the grid experience.

Had the most incredible time rafting down the Grand Canyon with Azra! All the guides were absolutely fantastic, they hugely exceeded my expectations! Their knowledge of the history and geology of the canyon was amazing- I expected them to be knowledgeable on the river considering it was a white water rafting trip, but the extra information about the Grand Canyon...

Been down the Grand Canyon now twice with AzRA, great people. The food well just great. The guides , great cooks and very knowledgeable about the the canyon and all the people that have been there before us. I liked the motor trips best, one week was all my old body could take.

Just completed the hiking emphasis nonmotorized raft trip for the lower half of the canyon (Bright Angel to Diamond Springs). Everything was done well. The guides were all terrific. If you are thinking this trip belongs on your bucket list, you are absolutely right.

More stars in the rating and also in the sky. Completed a oar/paddle raft trip with AzRA in May '15. Cannot say enough, world class whitewater and the best setting on the planet. Day hikes were absolutely unbelievable. Even if you are not a camper this is not a trip to miss. The memories you make will have you smiling... More

ARA is the only company with a permit to go to Schnebly Road. Incredibly rough (thought we'd be bounced right out of the jeep!!) but worth it for the stunning views. Our driver (who's name I cannot remember) was very knowledgeable. Probably not the best tour for anyone afraid of heights or with a bad back or neck or subject... More

I did the 16 day, hiking emphasis, non-motorized rafting trip on the Grand Canyon (April 15-30, 2015) with AZRA, and it was amazing. The canyon is spectacular, the hikes were wonderful, the rapids were exciting, the food was fabulous. But, most important, the guides were top notch. They really knew the river, and shared a lot of information that added... More
