ELDORADO GOLD KAYAK TRIP
Our most adventurous and remote kayak trip. Hiking, hot springs, caves, and exploring tunnels of a historic mine.
About the Experience
See Hoover Dam up close from your own high performance kayak, paddling through Black Canyon on the Colorado River.
Black Canyon's current is moving flat-water, and is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned paddlers. Your guide will show you hidden places such as Gold Strike Canyon, Lone Palm Canyon, Arizona Hot Springs, Monkey Hole, and many other treats.
Relax and soak 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. You may see Desert Big Horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, 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.
At Eldorado Canyon, explore the inner workings of the most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada. Visit 3 different shafts, which descend over 900 feet.
This 4-day multisport expedition packs the best outdoor adventures into one trip. You don't want to miss it!
