Every year more and more people come up with items to put on their bucket lists. Those who want to get the most out of life actually sit down with pen and paper, giving serious thought to pinpoint those experiences that would add meaning and joy to their lives. Making your own bucket list can be one of the best ways to really push yourself to get out there and start seeing and doing the things you always wished you could accomplish in your lifetime. The most common bucket list items are things such as going on a African Safari, seeing Paris, skiing the Alps, or going sky diving. At times these lists can be pretty extensive, considering the sheer number of incredible places to visit and explore in this beautiful world.
For the most part, people tend to keep these lists tame by creating a list of major travel destinations and well-known global sightseeing spots. Then there are those who go for a more adventurous approach and really get to experience the greatness and grandeur this world has to offer, from climbing Mt. Everest to Colorado River rafting. Being a part of this more adventurous group does not necessarily mean that you will be out bagging the highest peaks and subsequently jumping off them, but rather finding hidden treasures around the world. By the numbers, about 10 million people every year see the Eiffel Tower, visit the Pyramids, or walk on the Great Wall of China. Then there are the lucky few who choose the path less traveled. For those few, seeing the Grand Canyon is urged, but not in the usual way. About 5 million people every year arrive at the rim of the Canyon, spend roughly 15 minutes peering over the edge and snapping photos of each other standing by the railing and are on their way to the gift shop. Yes, everyone should see the Canyon, even if it is just a brief glimpse; but what about a more rewarding approach. A small number of individuals choose to experience the Grand Canyon from a unique and less-traveled perspective – by rafting the Colorado River as it cuts through the heart of the Grand Canyon.
A whitewater raft trip with Grand Canyon Whitewater is truly the adventure of a lifetime. Grand Canyon Whitewater raft trips not only provide an exhilarating thrill, but the opportunity to learn more about this incredible natural wonder. River trip participants make new friends and enjoy first class meals, with the added benefit of temporarily disconnecting yourself from the hustle and bustle of the world. Grand Canyon Whitewater rafting trips can range anywhere from 4 to 13 days, and are filled with everything you could imagine in an outdoor adventure worthy of the best bucket lists. And unlike many other adventures, you really need no rafting experience or expertise; you simply show up and let the expert guides take it from there.
In short, if you’re looking to spice up your bucket list – take an adventure rafting the Colorado River with Grand Canyon Whitewater. Once you’ve experienced the Grand Canyon from the River’s perspective, your only regret will be that you didn’t do it sooner.
