This daylong tour begins with complimentary pick-up from your Grand Canyon South Rim hotel in comfortable air-conditioned transportation to Page, Arizona. During this 3.5-hour road trip you'll discover sights of both Grand Canyon National Park, the Eastern Rim of the Grand Canyon, and the Navajo Indian Reservation. Upon arrival, each passenger will receive a box lunch to enjoy at anytime during the rafting trip.

Beginning at the historic Lee's Ferry, you'll embark on a breathtaking 18-mile smooth water float trip onboard a 32-passenger motorized raft. Watch the massive canyon walls ripple and change as you drift between them up the mighty Colorado River. This scenic journey also includes a stop on the river bank, allowing passengers to make a short hike to find ancient petroglyphs left by early indigenous inhabitants of the canyon. Our skilled and knowledgeable river guides can interpret the petroglyphs and also answer other questions along the way. Perhaps the most exciting segment of this journey is floating around the world-famous Horseshoe Bend - a near-circular twist in the Colorado River!

Ample time will be allotted for pictures of the Colorado River's grandeur and the exquisite desert surroundings. Your tour comes to an end back at Lee's Ferry - where ground transportation will be waiting.
