The Scenic Canyon River Adventure is the perfect pairing of a Grand Canyon airplane tour and a day on the Colorado River, rafting in Glen Canyon. The flight to the river crosses over large sections of the Grand Canyon's Eastern Rim offering spectacular down-canyon views. Antelope Canyon, the second segment of the tour, is world renowned for its elegant sandstone shapes and shadows formed by many centuries of wind and water smoothing. The day continues with a 15.5 mile smooth water float trip down the mighty Colorado River, one of the main sculptors of the Grand Canyon. Midway down the river the trip pauses on the sandy banks for a short hike to see ancient Native American Petroglyphs.
All guests must be at least 4 years old to enjoy this experience.
Operation dates are March 1st, through November 15th.
