The absolute best way to experience the peaceful grandeur of the Colorado River is aboard our half- or full-day Glen Canyon Float Trips. This is a real treat for people of all ages and abilities. It’s calm, beautiful, and inspiring, as you gently float 15 miles down the river, with stops at some of its most awe-inspiring sites.
Check in at our River Headquarters in Page. Enjoy a motor-coach ride through a tunnel carved through two miles of solid rock. Disembark at the foot of Glen Canyon Dam, with its concrete walls soaring 700 feet above you. Even the walk to your river raft is amazing: look for preserved dinosaur footprints along the way!
Your friendly guide will help you aboard our roomy 32-foot craft. Then sit back and relax as you take in the sights and stories of Glen Canyon. Your first stop is Petroglyph Beach. There you can see the hand-carved images of bighorn sheep and other ancient canyon dwellers, perfectly preserved after 5,000 years! You can also take a dip in the cool river if you like; and there are convenient restrooms, too.
Back aboard your river raft, you’ll float through the iconic Horseshoe Bend, with its towering sandstone walls and crystal-clear waters. Watch for hawks, ospreys, coyotes, and graceful great blue herons.
