Tour in the Spotlight
Lake Powell & Rainbow Bridge Boat Trip, Colorado River Float Trip & Antelope Slot Canyon Tour
April 8 to 11, 2018
Looking for a little soft adventure and spectacular scenery? Then you have the right trip! This 4 day and 3 night tour takes in some of the most impressive geology in Arizona.
We begin our motorcoach journey with a drive to Navajo land via Flagstaff. This afternoon we visit the Glen Canyon Dam Visitors Center before we check into our hotel for the next two nights which will be the Courtyard Marriott in Page. We will enjoy a get-acquainted dinner at a local restaurant before settling in for the night.
Day 2 we enjoy a ½ day cruise on Lake Powell and our destination is remarkable Rainbow Bridge. Lake Powell is a stunning 186 mile long lake surrounded by exceptional red rock scenery and full of cool blue water and is our pathway to Rainbow Bridge National Monument. This is the largest natural bridge in the world at 290 feet tall and 270 feet across and it is considered sacred by the Navajo culture. (For optimum viewing of the bridge a roundtrip walk/hike a total of 1.25 miles is necessary.) This afternoon we will enjoy a visit to a museum which is dedicated to the famous river explorer John Wesley Powell.
Day 3 we board jeeps that take us to the most visited sandstone slot canyon in the Southwest. This deep canyon has magnificent rock formations that are sculptured and colorful. Make sure you have plenty of film for your camera! Late morning has us boarding the large 20 person pontoon rafts that take us on a half-day smooth water float trip. We begin at the Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel, at river level, with the dam soaring 700 feet above us. For the next 15 miles, we will experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river in the western United States. You will not believe your eyes! Our trip ends at Lee’s Ferry but will live on in your memory forever. This afternoon we travel to Flagstaff for our overnight at Little America Hotel.
Day 4 we stop to visit Montezuma Castle National Monument before we journey back to Southern Arizona after our unique adventure on the Colorado Plateau.
