See Horseshoe Bend from the Air

Horseshoe Bend – it’s quickly risen to TripAdvisor’s coveted #1 spot among things to do in Page, AZ, and has become an unmistakable icon of the American Southwest. How can you possibly top that? By taking things to a “higher” plane!

On the Horseshoe Bend and Lake Powell Adventures Air Tour, you’ll see Horseshoe Bend, the Colorado River and so much more from a bird’s-eye perspective that only a select few have experienced, and what’s more, you’ll do it in only 30 minutes time, plus skip the “selfie-stick swordfight” that has become all too commonplace on the ground.

This popular airplane tour departs daily* from the Page Municipal Airport (PGA). Our aircraft boast unobstructed views and are specifically designed for sightseeing with high wings and panoramic windows, as well as a climate controlled cabin to ensure passenger comfort. On this aerial sightseeing bonanza, you’ll soar like the condors over:

  •         Wahweap Bay
  •         The last remaining intact stretch of Glen Canyon
  •         Lone Rock Beach
  •         Romana Mesa
  •         Castle Rock
  •         Crossing of the Fathers
  •         Glen Canyon Dam and Steel Arch Bridge

From the sparkling blue waters of Lake Powell, the earthy red sandstone of the towering monoliths that rise from its depths, to the chocolate-brown walls of Glen Canyon and the emerald green Colorado River that carved Horseshoe Bend itself. By the time your plane touches back down at the Page Airport, you’ll have seen the Earth’s palette of colors in all their glory, and gained a truer sense of the size and scope of Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon, Lake Powell and the immense landscape that surrounds it.

Doesn’t this sound better than a 1-mile+ hike in deep sugar sand and dry desert heat, then bumping elbows with teeming hordes of tourists for the perfect photo?
