About the Salt River 5 Day Wilderness Trip

The Salt River 5 Day Trip is one of the premier Wilderness trips in the United States. This trip provides an opportunity for total escape. We have the luxury of time to explore flowing creeks in beautiful side canyons, play games on sand beaches, and generally get into the flow of what we call “river time”. Experience world-class whitewater, fascinating geology, giant multi-armed saguaro cactus, Indian ruins, and desert canyons carpeted in Sonoran Desert wildflowers. The Salt River Canyon is truly a hidden treasure of the southwest.

Strict limits on the number of groups launching each day ensures that crowds will not degrade the experience that many boaters seek.

5 day trips travel farther and deeper into the grandeur of the Salt River Canyon system than our 2 or 3 Day wilderness trips. Remote, inaccessible Jumpoff Canyon and the Goosenecks offer abundant riverside campsites that are accessible only by raft. Hear and feel the roar of exciting rapids such as Quartzite Falls, Black Rock, The Maze, and Corkscrew.

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 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.
