What You Can Expect

Colorado River Float Trip from Sedona or Flagstaff

Colorado River Float Trip

Board your tour vehicle upon pickup from your accommodation in Sedona and begin with a scenic drive up Oak Creek Canyon via a National Scenic Byway. The road winds through pine forests en route to Flagstaff, with the option of hotel pickup there.

Marvel at the San Francisco Peaks, Arizona’s highest mountains, en route to the Navajo Nation. The route continues along the Echo Cliffs to the town of Page and Lake Powell where a tunnel takes you through the walls of Glen Canyon to the base of Glen Canyon Dam.

After a safety briefing with your river guide, settle into an inflatable river raft and gaze at the cliff walls towering more than 1,000 feet (305 meters) above. Explore ancient petroglyphs, stop for a riverside lunch, and let the raft meander around Horseshoe Bend on its course to Lee’s Ferry. You’ll have time for photos at this historical site, used by early pioneer settlers who inhabited the nearby cabins.

See impressive views on a drive through the Navajo Nation en route to the Cameron Trading Post, known for its outstanding selection of American Indian arts and crafts. The cliffs of the Painted Desert provide a picturesque backdrop for this scenic stop before drop-off at your hotel in Flagstaff or Sedona.

It is extremely hot in the bottom of the canyon so the two opportunities for dips in the Colorado were brilliant.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

The ride from the hotel in Flagstaff to Page where the float began was amazing. The tour guide, Sheldon, was very informative, professional and fun. The scenery was beautiful. The float trip is a gentle ride down the Colorado River. Also amazing. The guide for the float trip was also very informative, professional and fun. I highly recommend this trip.
