Bighorn Classic Journey
3 Day Kayak Trip
Spend three amazing days kayaking in Black Canyon on our kayak camping expedition. Hike through narrow slot canyons, paddle
the crystal green waters of the Colorado River, and sleep out under the stars.
The lower Colorado river is moving flat-water, not whitewater, and it is perfect for beginners or seasoned paddlers alike.
This 3-day expedition is packed with miles of paddling, great hikes, steamy hot springs, and spectacular wildlife.
Our basecamp will be in the middle of the canyon, giving us access to all the side canyons, and hidden secrets that lie within.
Days will be full of kayaking and hiking, and you will have plenty of time to roam free. Nights will be spent enjoying the
hot springs by moonlight, as the campfire crackles in the dark.
Spend hours relaxing and soaking in the natural hot tubs. Paddle into rain caves, and take time to study ancient
rock art left by the Mohave tribes who inhabited the area. Many wildlife species call Black Canyon home. You may see
Desert Big Horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, and turkey vultures. Anglers can bring
a rod & reel, and try their hand at some world-class striped bass fishing.
Fresh meals will be enjoyed around the campfire, and evenings are free to relax, read, hike, or explore on your own. Enjoy
the sounds of the river as it lulls you to sleep, embers popping from the campfire.
It doesn't get much better than this.
Spend a night in Black Canyon, and discover the magic for yourself.
