Colorado River Smooth Water Float Trip and Horseshoe Bend from Flagstaff

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Receive a morning pickup from your Flagstaff hotel, after which you’ll transfer out of town and up onto the Colorado Plateau, offering views of the ancient San Francisco Peaks which tower more than 12,600 feet (3,800 meters) above the desert below.

    Continue your sightseeing drive by passing through the Painted Desert, stopping by the Cameron Trading Post where you can purchase a variety of artwork crafted by the local Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi tribes. You’ll proceed from here to Page, where you’ll board your boat for a smooth-water float down the Colorado River.

    Stare up in wonder at the towering 1,000-foot (300-meter) tall walls of Glen Canyon, and search for ancient petroglyphs during a beach stop where you’ll enjoy an included lunch. More adventurous souls can even dive into the icy-cold Colorado River if they dare. Continue floating past Lee’s Ferry and the famous “Balanced Rocks before walking across the Navajo Bridge.

    You’ll finish your excursion with a drive back to your hotel in Flagstaff, watching as the sun casts a fiery glow across the Painted Desert landscape.
