The Grand Canyon spans 1,900 square miles and contains more than 275 miles of the powerful Colorado River — which was responsible for carving this canyon over millions of years. Explore the canyon and this incredible river on an epic adventure that combines sightseeing via air, water, and land. Your air-conditioned airplane boasts oversized windows for the best aerial viewing and photography experience possible. This one-hour flight provides spectacular views of the canyon's Eastern Rim, which holds both the Colorado River and Lake Powell, a man-made reservoir boasting an impressive 400-foot depth.
After landing, board an awaiting 4-wheel drive vehicle and venture off to Antelope Canyon for a 90-minute guided tour. Your Native American guide will lead you into the depths of these stunning canyon walls and share stories and histories of the early Natives who sought shelter here. After your tour, you'll be transported to the Colorado River Discovery Center and embark on a rafting trip along the Colorado River. This journey via motorized raft travels 15.5 miles downstream and even includes a stop to view ancient petroglyphs left on the canyon walls by ancient peoples. The rafting tour comes to an end at historic Lee's Ferry, where a motorcoach awaits to return you to Grand Canyon National Park. The drive back includes sights of the Navajo Indian Reservation and a stop at the Cameron Trading Post. Total tour time is approximately 12.5 hours.
