Arizona Canyons

From Openwaterpedia

Arizona Canyons is a 6-day SwimTrek Classic swimming holiday where participants swim 5 km per day in the Salt River in Arizona, U.S.A. It is one of the World's Top 100 River Swims of 2019.

Location[edit]

Taking in the dynamic landscapes of the area, where the Salt River flows through the Tonto National Forest, this really is a SwimTrek adventure like no other. The river is chiselled between deep canyons, steep lakeside cliffs, and a meandering river course through Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, creating a lake and river setting that will have you telling stories of ‘swimming in the Wild West’ for years to come. Over the course of the trip, we swim the length of entire canyons, with mountain peaks reaching high up above as we pass by.

Salt River[edit]

The Salt River is a stream in the U.S. state of Arizona. It is the largest tributary of the Gila River. The river is about 200 miles long. Its drainage basin is about 13,700 square miles large. The longest of the Salt River's many tributaries is the 195-mile Verde River.
