Grand Canyon West Reopening Guidelines
Grand Canyon West has features you just won’t find at the South or North Rims. Get an aerial view of the Canyon through a glass bridge on the Skywalk, take a white water rafting tour with Hualapai River Runners, take a helicopter & boat tour, soar over cliffs on a zip line, and explore the area’s history at the Native American Village and Guano Point.
Grand Canyon West is just a two-hour drive from Las Vegas and a quick drive from Laughlin, or Lake Havasu and offers plenty of activities and sights that can be experienced in one day. Start planning your Grand Canyon West vacation today.
YOUR ADVENTURE AT A GLANCE
The activities at Grand Canyon West are split between two locations: The West Rim and Peach Springs. At the West Rim, you’ll find the Skywalk, ziplining, aerial tours, and calm floats down the Colorado River. You’ll also find Hualapai Ranch, where you can rent a cabin and experience the history and culture of the Canyon.
Peach Springs is the launch point for Colorado River whitewater rafting trips. It’s about a two-hour drive from the West Rim, and you can stay at the Hualapai Lodge. Peach Springs is along an unspoiled section of historic Route 66, so in addition to seeing the Canyon you’ll be able to experience a stretch of this iconic highway.
WALK THE SKY
This 10-foot wide, horseshoe-shaped glass bridge extends 70 feet out over the rim of the Grand Canyon. Look down and you can see right through the glass platform 4,000 feet to the floor of the Canyon below. Profiled by the National Geographic Channel, The Today Show, and CNN, this engineering marvel offers unparalleled views of one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders.
Nervous about walking on glass almost a mile above the floor of the Grand Canyon? Have no fear—the Skywalk is strong enough to hold seventy fully loaded 747 passenger jets.

HUALAPAI RIVER RUNNERS
Whitewater rafting is a thrilling way to experience the Grand Canyon, and whitewater rafting at Grand Canyon West is truly an experience like no other. Hualapai River Runners offer one- or two-day rafting experiences, led by experienced river guides.
In addition to exciting rapids, hiking at Travertine Cavern Falls, local wildlife viewing, lunch along the banks of the river, and the option to take an exciting helicopter ride from the river up to Grand Canyon West, participants will learn about the Hualapai Tribe and their connection to the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River.
Not only do rafting trips with the Hualapai River Runners provide thrills, incredible views, and a deep connection with nature, but they are also the only Grand Canyon whitewater rafting experience that offers a true insight into the people who call the Grand Canyon home.
The Hualapai people have a long history of living along the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. Here are just some of the things you can expect to learn about on your whitewater rafting experience with Hualapai River Runners:
- The shelters and homes that the Hualapai People developed along the walls of the Grand Canyon.
- The canyons served as a refuge for the Hualapai people when they were being rounded up for relocation in 1874.
- The Colorado River is a significant landmark for the Hualapai. Historically, all of the Yuman language family tribes were located on or near the Colorado River.
- There is a common binding creation myth that took place at “Spirit Mountain,” Wikahme, along the Colorado River near Bullhead City, Arizona.
- The Hualapai people study the geology, plant and animal life, and Hualapai Historical Sites along the river.
