This trip can only be offered from 1 October through 14 May. From 15 May through 30 September the hiking trails to the springs are closed, making our Arizona Hot Springs trip an ideal trip to do, as kayakers will have the springs pretty much to themselves.  

You will find this to be a unique experience; hiking, kayaking and time to soak in a natural hot spring. 

It begins with a three mile hike through desert canyons, followed by a soak in natural hot springs and finishes with an eight mile paddle down the very scenic Black Canyon of the Colorado River.

See a Photographic Map Tour below.
