Canoe the Colorado River: Black Canyon to Hoover Dam
Canoe the gentle current of the majestic Colorado River through a sculpted black and red walled canyon. You’ll be self-contained, with only the gear in your boat, as we embark on a three-day journey to scout for big horn sheep standing on sheer cliff walls, experience secluded sauna caves, leap from the surrounding cliffs and float beneath the towering monolith of the Hoover Dam. At night, we’ll gather around a campfire and then hike to hot springs nestled within a narrow canyon pass. Nature doesn’t get any better than this. Prepare to learn the basics of camping, canoeing a little bit about this amazing juncture of natural and man-made wonders.
