Colorado River Rafting from Flagstaff
Begin your adventure as you depart Flagstaff, AZ in a motorcoach or van with the Grand Canyon Store. You will navigate through the Navajo Indian Reservation and Painted Desert area of Northern Arizona.
You will receive your lunch and be transferred to Colorado River Discovery in the small town of Page Arizona. You will then be transported to the base of Glen Canyon Dam through a 2-mile tunnel blasted into the walls of Glen Canyon and then board 22-passenger pontoon rafts for your 15-mile journey down the Colorado River!
One of the last remaining intact sections of Glen Canyon, this stretch of the Colorado River consists entirely of smooth water, which means that this trip can be enjoyed by virtually everyone who’d like to take part, including children as young as 5. As sandstone canyon walls rise higher and higher, keep your eyes peeled for birds such as eagles and hawks; at the shoreline, you might be lucky enough to spot a heron or bighorn sheep. Your trip consists of a short, easy walk to view a panel of ancient petroglyphs inscribed by the Ancestral Puebloans, and time to take a quick dip in the cool, clear Colorado River if you wish.
Your river trip ends at historic Lees Ferry, where your van or mini-coach waits for you, ready to make the return trip to Flagstaff, Arizona.
Trip length is approximately 12 hours. Price includes all taxes, fuel surcharges, lunch, plus water and lemonade on the river. This tour is offered March 1st through October 31st. The Grand Canyon Store keeps group sizes small for a more personalized experience, so be sure to book your seats well in advance.
