Salt River Rafting on Arizona's Desert Jewel
2018 SALT RIVER RAFTING SEASON: Due to the low amount of precipitation and snowpack in the region, the Salt River has too little flow to be run in the 2018 season. Please try again next year!
Welcome to whitewater rafting on the Salt River! This is no tubing trip on a trickle of water coming out of Phoenix. This is fast, wet, and exciting whitewater rafting. The rapids are plentiful, the canyon is beautiful, the food is delicious, and in Arizona, the weather is always perfect for rafting.
Join us for a half, single or multi-day trip and experience a part of the desert rarely seen by others. Only 2 hours from Phoenix and 4 from Flagstaff, this hidden gem will change your perspective on the desert forever. Our trained, professional guides are ready for you with all the equipment, knowledge, and experience you need to get down the river. Sign up, meet us at the river, and we will show you a truly incredible time. We’ll even throw in a hot lunch so what are you waiting for?
