What You Can Expect
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.
What a fantastic tour ! It is difficult to imagine a better way of exploring the Grand Canyon in one day. The flight especially was incredible.
We had a great time and it was flawless on all of the different adventures..... I was concerned about the price at first but after completing the trip..... It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone.
This tour was amazing!
Amazing! Worth every cent. Wonderful, personable guides and exceptional attention.
If you only have one day to see the Grand Canyon, this is the only way to do it. It's a long day but worth it. We stayed in Flagstaff and drove to the airport at the South Rim in the morning. The flight over the canyon was amazing, and gives you a great feel for the scale of the canyon. We were picked up at the airport in Page by "Henry" our guide and taken to Antelope Canyon. It was great getting there so early because there were little to no crowds yet. It get's very crowded later in the day. After that we were taken by motor coach to the Glenn Canyon dam were we caught the raft. Seeing the canyon from the air and water level was truly amazing, and "Laura" our guide was terrific. One other reason we took this trip was becuase we took my 70 year old mother-in-law with us. She was able to navigate the plane and raft ride just fine. My only tip is take plenty of sunscreen and hats on the raft ride.
Very nice trip.
Great trip. Excellant guides, good timing. Well organized. We recommend this one.
Excellent day, great raft trip and visit to Antelope Canyon, plane journey not so impressive and could have done with more and better commentary.
