Looking to add some more adventure to your Grand Canyon vacation? Take your visit up a notch with a daylong excursion to the nearby city of Page, Arizona for a once-in-a-lifetime rafting tour. Your day begins with a picturesque airplane flight from the Grand Canyon National Park to Page with aerial views of the Colorado River and Lake Powell. Don't want to fly? Let Scenic pick you up from your South Rim hotel and drive to Page while you relax on a comfortable motorcoach.

Enjoy a complimentary lunch upon arrival to Page or save it to eat while aboard the raft! Your smooth water tour will begin at the base of Glen Canyon Dam and continues for 15.5 miles to the historic Lee's Ferry. Each open-air motorized raft allows for perfect viewing in all directions and seats 32 passengers. You'll feel the cool spray of the Colorado River as you drift between the ancient canyon walls. Soon the raft will reach one of the most ancient and astounding areas of the riverbank: Petroglyph Beach. Here the rock face holds the carved drawings created by some of the canyon's ancient inhabitants. Your river guide can explain the modern interpretations of these images, including one that very much resembles a dinosaur. Your raft will eventually reach Lee's Ferry, where ground transport awaits to bring passengers back to the air terminal. Return to the Grand Canyon National Park to continue your sightseeing vacation.

Rafting tours are available each year from March 1 through October 31.
