Inspiring canyon vistas and heart pounding rapids have made the Upper Canyon of the Salt River the most popular day section in Arizona. You will be greeted with a shot of refreshing mountain water in rapids like Bump and Grind, Maytag Rapid, and Exhibition Rapid. Stop by for a riverside lunch of sizzling fajitas and finish out your rafting adventure in the company of Arizona’s silent sentinel the Saguaro catus. Don’t want your trip to end here? Consider booking a multi-day adventure and continue through the Middle and Lower Salt River Canyons.
