Ride, Row, or Hike into Grand Canyon Adventures!
These upcoming weeks are perfect for a trip down into the Grand Canyon, whether you’re pursuing a scenic hike or a rafting expedition. Deep into the canyon’s ravine, the painted deserts come alive with gorgeous waterways off the Canyon Dam and florid rock formations that are present as far as the eye can see. Grab your gear and book a hotel in some of the comfortable lodging near the park. You’ll be ready for the experience of a lifetime as you try out these activities!
Put your oars in the water as you take the Grand Canyon Smooth Water Bus Trip along the winding Colorado River. The trip starts at the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, where you’ll be transported on a scenic drive out to your raft for an all-day river tour, as well as a delectable lunch along the coast around noon. Bring your friends, as the river raft can hold up to 22 passengers!
For a look at the Grand Canyon from land, try the Grand Canyon Explorer Hike, which takes visitors on a three mile hike around the rim of the canyon, giving you a picturesque look at the historical indian dwellings and bright red rock formations. Grab your camera for a moderate walk with provided lunch in the afternoon.
Finally, for a different watery excursion, you may be interested in the Canyons Adventure Tour, where a yacht will take passengers through the intricately detailed Navajo Canyo, with colored painting and designs on the jutting rock formations. Enjoy refreshing drinks and listen to your tour guide as he or she tells the stories and legends behind the origins of the canyon.
