Description

Visit the very attraction that gives Arizona it's nickname and enjoy a breathtaking exploration of the Grand Canyon on this day trip from Flagstaff. You'll stop at several overlooks such as the Grand Canyon Village, Yavapai Point, Lipan Point and the Desert View Watchtower. Learn about the history of the canyon and also spend time at the Cameron Trading Post to take in the Native American artwork.

You cannot visit Arizona and not explore the Grand Canyon, the most stunning of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world.

After pickup from your Flagstaff hotel, your knowledgeable and fun tour guide will drive through the spectacular gorge of Oak Creek Canyon and onto to the Colorado Plateau. Enjoy a sweeping view of the San Francisco Peaks, an ancient volcano that is Arizona´s highest mountain, while heading west toward historic Williams and on to Grand Canyon National Park.

Gaze into the abyss from the meandering overlook at Grand Canyon Village and maybe even glimpse a Condor – the world´s largest bird – before enjoying lunch at Maswik Café. Then, “ride the rim” on a drive that features the most amazing overlooks of the canyon:

  • Yavapai Point with its fascinating geology museum
  • Lipan Point with its sweeping views into the Canyon
  • Desert View with its historic watchtower and Hopi art
If you have selected the helicopter upgrade option, you will take to the skies for a 30-minute flight, providing unparalleled views of the Grand Canyon from the air.

Finally, you'll drive along the Little Colorado Rover with views of its starkly beautiful cliffs. Make a last stop at historic Cameron Trading Post featuring works from Hopi, Zuni and Navajo artists before returning home to a magnificent sunset over the high desert.
