Grand Canyon Helicopters is proud to offer a whitewater rafting package with the Hualapai Rivers Runners. Your adventure begins by checking into our Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal, where a helicopter awaits to fly you to the Peach Springs airport in Arizona. Hualapai River Runners will be on hand to provide transfers from the airport to the Hualapai Lodge. There, you will board an eight-person motorized river raft, designed specifically for navigating the Colorado River. All Hualapai River Runner guides are fully certified and provide intriguing insights into the ancient land and ages-old stories of their ancestors. This whitewater adventure consists of rapids ranging from 4 to 7, and is experienced during the first twelve-miles of the trip. Enjoy a nature hike and refreshing lunch along the way.

Your four-hour whitewater adventure comes to an end at Grand Canyon West. From the edge of the river, experience a thrilling helicopter flight along canyon cliffs as you ascend 4,000 feet out of the canyon to the Grand Canyon West Airport. Return by helicopter to the Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal with incredible memories to share for a lifetime! Round-trip hotel pick up and limousine service is complimentary, as with all Grand Canyon Helicopters tours.
