Full Day Upper Canyon – Sprint

Salt River Rafting AZ Rafters Splashing Through Rapids

White Water Rafting in Arizona

Exciting Class III-IV rapids!

Not a fan of early mornings but still want to go rafting? We have the perfect trip for you. The Sprint guarantees the same 10 miles of exciting Class III and IV rapids of the Upper Salt River Canyon as the full day with a later departure time and without a stop for lunch. The Sprint trip still offers the perfect mix of adventure, desert scenery and exciting whitewater but at an exhilarating pace.

Tackle the challenging rapids of Maytag, Mother Rock and Overboard. After cruising through the volcanic Narrows, take a break to eat a quick snack and enjoy a restroom break. Jump back in the rafts and navigate through the remaining seven rapids including the powerful waves of Exhibition and the daunting drop of Mescal Falls. There is no shortage of thrilling whitewater on this full day of heart pounding adventure.

If you are looking for a more isolated and truly scenic getaway, consider diving deeper into the spectacular Salt River Wilderness on a 2 Day Expedition, or a 3 Day, 4 Day or 5 Day trip. These multi-day adventures travel through remote canyons full of exciting whitewater and riverside beach campsites.
