Scenic Canyon River Adventure

What’s Included:

  • Flight from Grand Canyon to Page, Az
  • Guided tour of Antelope Canyon
  • 15.5 mile smooth water float trip
  • 2 meals
  • Return by motor coach
  • OPERATIONAL DATES: March 1 thru November 15

The Canyon River Adventure is the perfect pairing of a Grand Canyon Airplane Tour, taking an adventure tour through world famous Antelope Canyon, and a day rafting on the Colorado River in Glen Canyon to the Grand Canyon. The flight to the river crosses over large sections of the Grand Canyons Eastern Rim offering spectacular down-canyon views.

Antelope Canyon, the second segment of the tour, is world renowned for its elegant sandstone shapes and shadows formed by many centuries of wind and water smoothing. The day continues with a 15.5 mile smooth water float trip down the mighty Colorado river, one of the main sculptors of the Grand Canyon. Midway down the river, the trip pauses on the sandy banks for a short hike to see ancient Native American petroglyphs.

Good day!

I would like to learn more about this adventure in terms of pricing and lodging accommodations. This looks like it will be an amazing family trip..

    Dear Tonya,
    And a good day to you! The Canyon River Adventure is indeed an amazing family trip. Where else can kids as young as 5 experience such a diverse array of scenery – including Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Glen Canyon- and 3 distinctly different adventures all rolled into one fantastic day?
    Regarding pricing of the trip, these do change from year to year. Click on the red “book online now” button for current pricing.
    As for lodging, there are a number of choices, but it is always most desirable to stay inside the park (Grand Canyon Village). Check-in for the Canyon River Adventure is required at 6:00 AM at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport. In-park lodging is about a 15 minute drive away. If you prefer to be closer, Tusayan/GC Village South is about 5 miles from the airport. At this point, I must point out that Grand Canyon hotels in the Village and Tusayan do book up several months in advance. The next best lodging options are 60-90 minutes from the airport, which makes for a VERY early morning. For a complete listing of Grand Canyon area hotels, click here ->:
    Hope that helps – have fun!

There is a campsite right at the bend of Horseshoe Bend. Does anyone know the requirements in order to stay there? is it accessible only by raft? Do you need a reservation/permit? Is it first-come first-serve basis? Any details on this would be amazing. Thanks.

    Hi Morgan and thanks for visiting our site.
    Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River is only accessible by boat. Backhauling services are offered for those with their own kayaks or personal watercrafts by Colorado River Discovery in Page, Arizona. Click here for more information ->:
