Experience the incredible Colorado River on an epic sightseeing adventure that combines air, water, and ground travel. Start with a one-hour flight onboard an air-conditioned sightseeing airplane. The windows offer fantastic aerial viewing and photography possibilities of the canyon's Eastern Rim, the Confluence of the Little Colorado River, Horseshoe Bend, and Lake Powell - a man-made reservoir boasting an impressive 400-foot depth.
After landing, you'll board a 4-wheel drive vehicle and venture off to Antelope Canyon where you will experience a 90-minute guided tour. Follow a Native American guide into the depths of this winding slot canyon and learn the history of the early Natives who sought shelter within its very walls. Have your camera ready as your guide will assist you in capturing the best light and color for the perfect photos.
After your Antelope Canyon tour, you'll be transported to Wilderness River Adventures to embark on a rafting trip. Launched from the base of Glen Canyon Dam, your motorized raft will travel 15.5 miles up the Colorado River. This excursion includes a stop to explore the ancient petroglyphs marked on the canyon walls by ancient dwellers. Your guide will share with you the history of Glen Canyon, Glen Canyon Dam, and the native animals that still inhabit the area. The raft will curve through Horseshoe Bend before concluding at Lee's Ferry, where ground transportation will be waiting to drive you to Grand Canyon South. The return journey includes sights of the Navajo Indian Nation and a stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post.
All guests must be at least 4 years old to enjoy this experience.
