Grand Canyon Rafting Tours
Exploring the Grand Canyon by river is an experience you truly won’t forget. Behind the geological wonders of the canyon, there lies a world of waterfalls and other rock formations that can only be reached through the Colorado River. If you’re chasing a rush of adrenaline, join a whitewater rafting trip or take things down a notch and raft through one of the most beautiful parts of the Western United States on a smoothwater trip.
Smoothwater Raft Tours
This tour includes transportation from Grand Canyon South Rim to Glen Canyon Dam (Lake Powell), just outside Page, Arizona.
Your raft adventure will begin on the Colorado River at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam. With the dam soaring 583 feet above, you will board a motorized pontoon raft for your 15-mile journey down a calm stretch of the Colorado River.
Raft through one of the most beautiful parts of the Western United States. As you follow the route of Major John Wesley Powell through Glen Canyon, your tour guide will tell the story of the area’s soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, and abundant wildlife.
See ancient petroglyphs while taking a break on the bank of the river. Enjoy a “bistro lunch” on the river that includes a lunchmeat sandwich, fruit, chips, cookies, trail mix and a drink. Veggie options available, just advise the driver when picked from the South Rim. The river portion of the trip ends at historic Lees Ferry. You will then be returned to the South Rim in the late afternoon/early evening.
This trip operates seasonally and is an all-day adventure that lasts approximately 12 hours. This tour includes ground transportation (motorcoach, minibus or comfortable van) between Grand Canyon South Rim and Glen Canyon Dam for $214 per adult (12+) and $194 for children (age 4 to 11). (Children under age 4 are not permitted on this trip.) To inquire on availability and reservations please contact our central reservations department at 1-888-297-2757.
