4 Day Wilderness

Raft floating down Salt River

White Water Rafting in Arizona

4 Day Wilderness trip on the Salt River

Nothing compares to spending 4 days rafting though 51 miles of the remote Salt River Wilderness encompassing all of the raftable sections of the Upper Salt River. The 4 day trip is our most popular wilderness trip; it is the optimal length of time to spend exploring the Sonoran Desert while tackling world class whitewater in the Middle Canyon and Lower Canyon.

Exploration is the mission of each day with new challenging rapids and side hikes to remote Indian ruins or lush canyons. Thrive off the daily dose of challenging whitewater and spend relaxing nights on the abundant riverside campsites.

Embrace the morning as the warm sun unveils the waking desert’s cliffs that have been folded, lifted and twisted by eons of geological forces. Make the choice to get away and truly take time for yourself.

You may also want to consider these other multi-day white water rafting excursions through the spectacular Salt River Wilderness on a 2 Day Expedition, a 3 Day Wilderness trip, or our 5 Day Wilderness trip. These multi-day adventures travel through remote canyons full of exciting whitewater and riverside beach campsites.
