Colorado River Float Trip
Duration: Full Day
Departs from: Hotels in Sedona and Flagstaff, AZ
Your Colorado River Rafting Float Tour starts off with a scenic and narrated ride from the Red Rocks of Sedona, through Oak Creek Canyon (from Sedona - one of the top 10 scenic drives in America) and through the towering Ponderosa Pines of Flagstaff.
After meeting our guests from 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 your travels, 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 your arrival in Page, Arizona, you'll drive through a spectacular 2-mile tunnel through the cliff walls of Glen Canyon, right to the base of the Glen Canyon Dam. Between Glen Canyons walls that rise over a thousand feet, you float on your raft tour 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 wild life, ancient Indian petroglyphs, folklore as well as natural and human history. Stop off for an easy hike to get a closer look at the petroglyphs, and enjoy your ''Feast on the Beach'' (an amazing picnic lunch on the banks of the river). You end your river journey at Marble Canyon and historic Lees Ferry, complete with cabins of the early settlers.
On your return trip from your Colorado River Raft Float Tour, you'll pass by the Echo Cliffs and western edge of the Painted Desert as you re-cross the Navajo Reservation for a stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post. Shop for all sorts of Native American arts and crafts and visit The Gallery, home of many fine and rare pieces of Indian Arts and Crafts.
We'll pick you up at your hotel and give you a first class ride all All the way to the river. Enjoy the comfort of riding in a mini coach with large windows for excellent views! Spend all of your time looking at the beautiful scenery!
