Additional Information

We meet you in Las Vegas and transport you by van and small plane to the Bar 10 Ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for an afternoon of ranch activities including horseback riding, horseshoe pitching, hiking, and skeet shooting topped off with an evening of country entertainment. The next morning you fly by helicopter into the Grand Canyon where your river guides await your arrival at Whitmore Wash. We'll cross the shattered Hurricane fault zone before heading west into the final majesty of the Lower Grand Canyon. This dory trip affords an opportunity to hike and explore this exquisite desert wonderland by foot. Several beautiful side canyons invite you to linger in spring-fed streams. Your Grand Canyon adventure ends with a jet boat ride across Lake Mead and a return shuttle to Las Vegas by van.

  • Scenic flight from Las Vegas
  • Visit a working cattle ranch
  • Hike, horseback ride or skeet shoot
  • Helicopter ride to the river
  • Fun whitewater, ideal for first-timers

Fly from Las Vegas to Bar 10 Ranch for some good old-fashioned country western hospitality. The afternoon is free to horseback ride and hike at your leisure. Trails wind through rugged mountains and arid canyons that once sheltered early Native Americans as well as notorious desperadoes like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Pitch horseshoes, try skeet shooting, ride an ATV or simply relax. Hearty Dutch-oven dinner and an evening with country-western entertainment. Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight into the Grand Canyon and landing on the banks of the Colorado River. A few miles into the trip you'll encounter the first of over 13 medium-to-low-intensity rapids. Hike side canyons and explore this exquisite desert wonderland and geological oddity. Take out at Lake Mead and board our van for the shuttle ride back to Las Vegas
