One day White Water Rafting Trips originate from Peach Springs, Arizona, but it is recommended that you actually set aside 2 days for the trip so you can include an overnight stay in the Peach Springs area the night before. Children must be at least 8 to participate in a white water trip. Grand Canyon white water trips are available from March through October. Multi-day Grand Canyon white water rafting trips require a time commitment of 4 days to three weeks, and are usually booked about a year in advance.

Travel Tip 19 – Are Grand Canyon Air Tours Fun? How are Their Safety Records?
A Grand Canyon air tour is probably the best value for the money, allowing you to see the most of the Grand Canyon in the shortest amount of time. Indeed, by flying over the canyon, you’ll get to see areas even the most skilled of hikers would be hard-pressed to get to! Grand Canyon overflights and air/ground combination tours are available by airplane or helicopter and originate at Grand Canyon National Park Airport in Tusayan, Boulder City Municipal Airport and the North Las Vegas Airport in Nevada.
Grand Canyon Airlines and Scenic Airlines conduct Grand Canyon air tours in 19-passenger Twin Otter Airplanes. Both airlines offer overflights and airplane/helicopter combination tours to Grand Canyon West that will get you to the bottom of the canyon and have bases at both Grand Canyon South Rim and Las Vegas/Boulder City. Air Grand Canyon is another touring airline, operating canyon overflights in 6- passenger Cessna airplanes out of Grand Canyon South Rim. Vision Airlines flies out of North Las Vegas in 19-passenger Dornier 228’s and 30-passenger Dornier 328’s and also offers a Grand Canyon North Rim tour. Westwind Air Service offers tours of Lake Powell, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon in 9-passenger Cessna Caravans and 6-passenger 210’s. They operate from Phoenix/Deer Valley, Page/Lake Powell and Grand Canyon South Rim.
Helicopter tours are provided from Grand Canyon South Rim and Las Vegas by Papillon Helicopters, Sundance Helicopters and Maverick Helicopters. All offer Las Vegas Grand Canyon tours that include a landing on the Canyon floor at Grand Canyon West, and overflights of the Grand Canyon from the South Rim. Papillon Helicopters also offers an exclusive tour from Grand Canyon South Rim to the beautiful waterfalls of the Havasupai Indian Reservation!
