How About a Sneak Peek at 2026?

Due to the overwhelming popularity of our river trips and our limitation on the number of trips the Grand Canyon National Park allows companies to run through the canyon each year, we are working hard to make reserving a river trip experience with us as smooth as possible.

Often people make plans for river trips years in advance.  The best chance to get on a trip is to sign up for our early bird sneak peek list.

If you would like to be added to our early bird email list to have availability to book a 2026 trip before we openly publish our schedule, please click below to be added to the list.  We will send you a special email prior to our public release, giving you at least two weeks to book trips before they are published on our website.

2025 river trips will become bookable April of 2024.
