Incredible things happen when we set out for adventure; the unexpected creates moments in time that connect us and stay with us forever. Our own Sammy Pappas tells us a story from his days as a guide in Belize, when an afternoon of windsurfing lead to a close encounter and a lifelong friendship.

Fran & Dan Take on the Grand Canyon 1-Day Rafting Adventure!
This summer we sent our Adventure Booking Specialists, Daniel and Francesca, out on a Grand Canyon 1-Day Rafting Adventure. Neither one had ever been on the Colorado River, so they left R&O with a blank canvas of expectations and a spirit full of excitement for the journey ahead.
Only have a few days? We’ve got your ticket to the best 1 & 2-day Whitewater Rafting Adventures in the Southwest.
The Southwest is an adventurer’s playground, and for those of us that reside in Arizona (or are passing through) the possibilities for weekend river rafting expeditions in the great outdoors are endless. Many exciting destinations can be reached by car in less than a day and by plane in less than a few hours, making Arizona the perfect starting point to venture out and partake in a few days of adventure.
There’s something almost magical that happens when we are fearlessly chasing adventure. Our entire state of mind is open to whatever life has to offer. The thrill of the unknown calls us to go further – and we do, because somehow we know that amazing things are waiting for our arrival. For some, that amazing event is meeting the love of one’s life; the companion that makes every adventure more fulfilling.
