About the Salt River 3 Day Wilderness Trip
The three day trip launches at the point the Full Day trip eats lunch. In three days we travel 42 miles through White Rock, Granite Canyons and continue through the inaccessible Jumpoff Canyon in the Salt River Wilderness. Abundant riverside campsites that are accessible only by raft will be our stop each night.
Hear and feel the roar of exciting rapids such as Quartzite Falls, Black Rock, The Maze, and Corkscrew. Multi-day Salt River trips provide an opportunity for total escape. Experience world-class whitewater, fascinating geology, giant saguaro cactus, Indian ruins, and desert canyons carpeted in Sonoran Desert wildflowers.
The Salt River is one of the most unique rivers in the country. Its location on the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau is at the crossroads of mountain and desert ecosystems, resulting in a striking variety of plant, animal and bird life. You’ll descend through oak and juniper woodlands into the stunning Lower Sonoran desert with its towering multi-armed saguaro cactus. Several side canyon hikes lead to oasis-like micro-habitats that are a delight to explore. The Salt River Canyon is truly a hidden treasure of the southwest.
This trip has a strict maximum of 12 people per trip.

Lydia filled us with confidence. She was skilled and knowledgeable and explained each set of rapids so we knew what to expect. She was great company and we had the best experience. She was brilliant.
I cannot wait to come back! Also loved how funny all the guides were. It was the most I’ve seen my sister laugh in a long time! Thank you so much for this amazing experience.
I spent several days researching various rafting options and after speaking w/your team was sold. We were not disappointed-the trip is spectacular and our guide Sean was informative, lively professional and entertaining.
