What is the best time of year to go on a Grand Canyon trip?
“When is the best time to go?” is a question I get asked often when people are choosing a trip. The answer is that any time you are on the river will be a great time…you will be sure to enjoy thrilling rapids, spectacular scenery and delicious food no matter when you go. However, there are slight variations in temperature depending on which month you choose. In the April, May, & September tend to be a bit more moderate temperature-wise than the summer months and they can be a particularly nice time for the hiking and other off river activities you will do. As far as the water level is concerned in the Grand Canyon, since the water is released from Glen Canyon dam the water levels don’t have the same highs and lows that you will find on other rivers so no matter which month you go the water level and rapids will be fairly consistent. My best advice is to just choose a date that works for you and come join us because, no matter the month, it will be a trip of a lifetime!
