Be introduced to the awesome beauty of Glen Canyon as you cruise the mighty Colorado River. Enjoy a fun, safe and exciting 4 ½ -hour smooth-water tour through Arizona's canyon country on this Colorado River float trip from Flagstaff.
What to Expect
Your Colorado River rafting float tour starts off with a scenic, narrated ride from the Red Rocks of Sedona, through Oak Creek Canyon (one of the top 10 scenic drives in America) and the towering Ponderosa Pines of Flagstaff.
Your Colorado River rafting tour will take you past the dormant volcanoes which make up the San Francisco Peaks, and through the Navajo Nation. Throughout the day, you'll receive informative and entertaining narration about the areas through which you pass from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable tour guides from the Sedona and Flagstaff areas.
Upon our arrival in Page, Arizona, we pass through a spectacular 2-mile tunnel through the cliff walls of Glen Canyon and arrive at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam. We float through Glen Canyon's towering walls along a gentle stretch of the Colorado River just south of Lake Powell and the mighty Glen Canyon Dam. Sit back and relax as your river guide leads you on a breathtaking journey of colorful rock formations, soaring wildlife, and ancient Native American petroglyphs.
Stop off for an easy hike to get a closer look at the petroglyphs, and enjoy an amazing picnic lunch on the banks of the river. Your river journey ends at Marble Canyon and historic Lees Ferry, featuring cabins left behind by the early pioneer settlers.
On our return trip from your Colorado River rafting float tour, we will pass by the Echo Cliffs and western edge of the Painted Desert as we re-cross the Navajo Reservation for a stop at historic Cameron Trading Post. Shop for Native American arts and crafts and visit the gallery, home of many fine and rare pieces of Native American arts and crafts.

What to Remember
Type of transportation: we travel in small groups of no more than 14 people. We use mini-coaches that have been retrofitted with luxury, reclining seats with arm rests. Our vehicles are arguably the most comfortable way to travel on the ground. This insures that you will have plenty of space and will never feel crowded. A center isle makes it easy for everyone to get in and out of the vehicle. Once on the river you will travel on motorized rafts.
The tour is suitable for all ages and mobility levels. Comfortable shoes are recommended. You will only get wet if you want to.
Your credit card will be charged the day before the tour.
