Tour Description

This tour offers a perfect pairing: a sightseeing airplane tour and a day of rafting on the Colorado River. On your flight to Page, Arizona, you'll see aerial sights of the Grand Canyon East, the Colorado River - including the famous curve called Horseshoe Bend - and the majestic expanse of Lake Powell.

Upon landing in Page, you will be transported to the world-famous Antelope Canyon for a guided tour of its mystical depths. This desert landmark has been a photographer favorite for decades. Your guide will show you the most photogenic areas and help you recreate famous snapshots taken here while sharing the history of the slot canyon and Navajo lands.

Your adventure continues aboard a motorized raft, travelling up a 15.5-mile stretch of the Colorado River. Watch the magnificent canyon walls pass you by and feel the light spray of the Colorado River. During the trip, your raft will dock and passengers can enjoy a short hike to find ancient Native American petroglyphs. Your guide can translate these petroglyphs and offer some history about the canyon's ancient people. The raft tour continues through the world-famous Horseshoe Bend. You will come to an end at Lee's Ferry where ground transportation will be awaiting for your return trip. After a day of sightseeing, you'll enjoy a relaxing journey through Navajo lands with a stop at the historic Cameron's Trading Post en route to Grand Canyon South.
