Get ready for an adventure-packed day that takes you to Glen Canyon, on a back-country 4 wheel excursion, and a guided Glen Canyon rafting tour down the Colorado River.
Depart from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon aboard a luxurious fixed-wing aircraft bound for Page, Arizona, home of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam. The sightseeing aircraft offers unobstructed views of the breathtaking scenery. In-flight narration provides fascinating facts and stories about passing landmarks and the adventures that lie ahead.
After landing, a guided 4 wheel excursion transports you to Antelope Canyon, a small but incredibly beautiful attraction whose rock formations are bathed in soft pastel colors; Mother Nature at her best.
Continue on to the base of the Glen Canyon Dam where you’ll board large, comfortable pontoon boats for a 15 river-mile float trip down the Colorado River. During this Glen Canyon rafting tour expect spectacular views of the Canyon walls carved by time and erosion. Your expert guide relates the River’s fascinating historical and geological features, but also shares secrets of the area’s abundant wildlife. On the tour you will be provided a picnic box lunch to be enjoyed on the river while on your journey to Lee’s Ferry, a tiny community named after a pioneer Mormon settler with 17 wives.
After your Glen Canyon tour you’ll return to the Grand Canyon by vehicle, which gives you time to enjoy the countryside and views of the Painted Desert, and relive a remarkable day with fellow sightseers.
