Grand Canyon Resort Offers April Ticket Discounts for Hualapai River Runners Rafting Trips
Published on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 (10:44 a.m.)PEACH SPRINGS, Ariz. (March 15, 2013) – Grand Canyon Resort Corporation/Grand Canyon West (GCRC) announced today another discount opportunity in an ongoing series of visitor promotions available this year. From April 1 through April 15, 2013, visitors who purchase an adult ticket for a Hualapai River Runners whitewater rafting trip will receive half off the price of a child’s ticket.
“This is an unmatched opportunity to explore the Grand Canyon while riding along the whitewater rapids of the Colorado River,” said Dawnielle Tehama, marketing manager for GCRC. “While there, visitors can hike up to Travertine Falls with an experienced guide and learn about the rich history and culture of the Hualapai people.”
Hualapai River Runners offers the only one-day whitewater rafting trip through the Grand Canyon down the Colorado River. Rafting trips depart daily from the Hualapai Lodge on Historic Route 66 in Peach Springs, Ariz., down Diamond Creek Road – the only road that leads to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The rafting trip includes a sandbar stop for lunch at the river’s edge. After riding the rapids, rafters reach the bottom of Grand Canyon West, where they ascend an exhilarating 4,000 feet by helicopter to the top of the canyon. Guests are then driven back to the Hualapai Lodge, where they can stay the night and enjoy the facility’s saltwater pool, Diamond Creek Restaurant and Native American culture.
Hualapai River Runners is an award recipient of the Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor. This accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.
