Western River Expeditions Opens Bookings For 2024 Grand Canyon Rafting

Western River Expeditions has announced that bookings will be open for its 2024 Grand Canyon rafting vacations on November 29, 2022 at 6 p.m. MT. This is the annual opportunity to secure reservations for what many rafting enthusiasts consider the world’s top river rafting experience. Guests can explore the full schedule of the 2024 Grand Canyon raft trip departures and have a few dates ready for the evening kickoff on November 29.

The river rafting season on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon runs from April into September. The longer six- and seven-day trips with the thrills of class III-V rapids are open to guests as young as 12. The minimum age is nine for three- and four-day trips that come with class II-III rapids. Western’s exclusive J-Rig raft provides accessibility for first-time rafters on even the largest whitewater rapids in the Grand Canyon. Rafting trips include plenty of hiking in the Grand Canyon, allowing travelers access to waterfalls, slot canyons, native ruins and geologic wonders that the five million or so casual hikers from the rim will simply never see.

For details on the trips, Western River Expeditions offers complimentary expedition guides. The comprehensive guides include river maps, overviews, full itineraries, camping and weather information, details on physical requirements, packing lists and more.

Grand Canyon trips are always in high demand and fill quickly. The National Park Service regulates the number of rafting participants traveling through the Grand Canyon each year, creating space limitations. However, there are comparable (but perhaps lesser known) rafting destinations throughout the West such as Cataract Canyon and Desolation Canyon in Utah. For families wishing to experience a river rafting trip, Desolation Canyon is considered one of the best rafting destinations.
