What You Can Expect

Arizona Highlights Day Trip: Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell and Glen Canyon with River Rafting

Tour Antelope Canyon

Your daylong expedition starts at the Grand Canyon Airport with a 1-hour plane flight over the Grand Canyon's East Rim, the Colorado River and Lake Powell. You can choose to fill up with a nourishing breakfast of muffins, yogurt, a fruit cup, granola bar, string cheese and juice before or after the 140-mile (225-km) flight from the Grand Canyon to Page, Arizona.

Touch down in Page to meet your Navajo guide at the airport. Travel by 4WD vehicle to Antelope Canyon, a popular destination on Navajo land. During your 1.5-hour tour, capture photos of the smooth, striated red walls of this slot canyon formed by water rushing through rock.

After soaking up Antelope Canyon geological wonders, ride through a 2-mile (3.2 km) tunnel in your 4WD vehicle to reach the starting point for your rafting trip. Receive a picnic-style lunch in a souvenir soft-sided cooler bag you can take with you after the tour. Once you refuel, board your motorized raft to float 15.5 miles (25 km) along the Colorado River through Glen Canyon as your guide talks about the history and geology of the area.

During your mellow 4.5-hour rafting trip, stop for an easy 30-minute hike to view petroglyphs carved out in nearby rocks by ancient peoples. If necessary, take a second break to use restroom facilities. Your raft ride concludes at Lees Ferry, a former ferry crossing and military outpost situated in Glen Canyon Recreation Area. Here, board a motorcoach or van for the 3.5-hour drive back to the Grand Canyon. En route, pass through Navajo Nation land and stop at Cameron Trading Post to shop for local crafts.

Your 12.5-hour experience of some of Arizona's most spectacular scenery ends at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport.
