The Worlds Best White Water Rafting - Grand Canyon


A rafting trip down Colorado River, and particularly the Grand Canyon, is truly one of the top white water adventures in the world. Breathtaking scenery combined with wild white water make for an unforgettable experience. As Arizonaguide.com points out, rafting in the Grand Canyon enables visitors to explore its geological wonders through the very source of its creation, the Colorado River.

"The Grand Canyon section of the Colorado River runs from Lees Ferry to Grand Wash Cliffs, and those looking for a real white water adventure can raft the entire 277-miles. Featuring an amazing 161 sets of rapids, the complete trip takes as little as six days in a motor powered raft or up to 22 days under oar-power." Note, however, that the popularity of the experience means that one must plan and book this adventure several years ahead.

  3. I recently took a trip through Bryce Canyon and had seen rafters setting off from Lees Ferry as that seems to be the starting point for many rafters. I spoke to a couple of people and they had mentioned that you need to enter a lottery to receive permission to raft. I was a little heart broken as I am patient enough to reserve a slot a few years in advance if need be. But with a lottery, you might not ever win, meaning you can never take this trip... sort of silly in my opinion.

  10. “The breakthrough came courtesy of new technologies that allow the Nike VaporMax Air unit to Nike Air Huarache act as a standalone outsole. Where previous Air units had to be insulated by a secondary rubber layer for protection and improved durability, new innovation allows designers to incorporate the Nike Flyknit Chukka Air and exterior layer into one holistic VaporMax Air unit. And where previous units needed to be shaped with inflexible structural areas, the new unit can independently maintain its given Nike Store form, with elasticity.The former innovation allows additional Air to be integrated into the unit while the latter allows for more extreme Air geometries that enable designers to place even more Nike Air More Uptempo Air directly underfoot.
