Grand Canyon Rafting Tour Trips
Get ready for an adventure-packed day that takes you to Glen Canyon, on a back-country Jeep excursion, and a guided Grand Canyon rafting tour down the Colorado River, all led by Papillon Helicopters, America’s sightseeing experts.
Depart from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon aboard a luxury Vistaliner bound for Page, Arizona, home of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam. The sightseeing aircraft offers specially-designed windows with 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 Jeep 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 historic Colorado River. During this Grand 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 river bank, enjoy a picnic lunch, served in a souvenir pack, before resuming your journey to Lee’s Ferry, a tiny community named after a pioneer Mormon settler with 17 wives.
After your Grand 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.
