Though the Las Vegas Strip has no shortage of activities, the mighty and massive Colorado River—which runs through five US states—draws a crowd all its own. Step away from the city lights and into the stunning natural scenery and exciting rapids with these river-rafting tours from Vegas.
Grand Canyon Rafting Tours
Experience the thrill of white-water rafting alongside the dramatic cliffs of the Grand Canyon. With the help of your guide, you’ll travel 2.5 hours south to Arizona and take to the rapids with a 40-mile (64-kilometer) journey along the Colorado River. Waterfalls and canyons await, as does the option to add a helicopter ride that gives you an unforgettable birds-eye view of the river and the surrounding landscape.
Black Canyon Rafting Tours
Just a short drive from Las Vegas is the famous Hoover Dam. With Black Canyon rafting adventures (also on the Colorado River), you’ll see the man-made marvel from a little-seen perspective. Immersed in the rugged desert scenery, you may also spot local wildlife like osprey and bighorn sheep.
