How to Spend Three Days in the Grand Canyon
By Natalie Grant, USA, January 2013
If you have several days in which to explore the Grand Canyon and you’re not sure how to divide your time, the best thing to do is to pick your ideal outdoor activity and plan around that excursion. Whether it’s river-rafting, hiking, or horseback riding, reserve that highlight into your itinerary and then find activities to complement it before and after.
People travel from all over the world to raft the Colorado River, and you don’t have to be a pro at it to try—day trips aren’t as challenging and can accommodate beginners; otherwise, there are multi-day trips that involve more aggressive paddling. You can also go on a donkey ride, Jeep trip, or helicopter tour.
