Rafting in Arizona is not an experience to miss. This desert state contains some of the more unique rafting experiences in the US. Towering red cliffs line many of Arizona’s beautiful rivers – most notably the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. Rafting season also begins early in Arizona as the state’s hot temperatures drive snowmelt during the early spring.
