“So close and yet so far.” That sums up your conclusions about seeing Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend, Arizona during your Las Vegas vacation. After all, spending 12 hours on the road, whether under your own steam or on a bus tour, is not your idea of fun. Hasn’t anyone thought of a better way to do this? Yes: Scenic/Grand Canyon Airlines!
The company who wrote the book on Las Vegas-Grand Canyon aerial touring is writing a whole new chapter devoted not only to Horseshoe Bend, but Antelope Canyon. On the Horseshoe Bend/Antelope Canyon Tour from Las Vegas, you’ll make short work out of a long day of sightseeing. Your adventure begins when you board a fixed-wing airplane in Boulder City, NV for a flight to Page, Arizona, home of Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell and other natural and man-made wonders you simply can’t pass up. In the course of 90 minutes, a dazzling bird’s-eye view of Hoover Dam, the Tillman-O’Callaghan Bypass Bridge, Lake Mead, Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon Dam, Vermillion Cliffs and Lake Powell will whet your appetite for the adventure that awaits you when your airplane lands at the Page Municipal Airport.
In Page, Arizona, specially-built safari-style vehicles will be standing by to take you to Antelope Canyon, the world-famous slot canyon whose ethereal, swirling shapes and soft, muted colors have lured photographers from every corner of the globe to this once-obscure desert town. After a moderate hike in the Lower branch of the canyon and plentiful photo opportunities, you’ll then proceed to the Horseshoe Bend Overlook for a mind-blowing view of this improbable 270० curve in the Colorado River, which geologists call an “entrenched meander.” A light lunch is included in the price of your tour and is served prior to returning to Boulder City.
Touring by car or bus, you’d have to endure a long drive, and get 2-3 hours at most for sightseeing, before you’d have to face another long drive back to Vegas. On Scenic/Grand Canyon Airlines Private Las Vegas Horseshoe Bend Air Charter, you’ll have time to relax and explore the best sights Page, AZ has to offer, and get back to Las Vegas in time to enjoy more of what it has to offer!
