Horseshoe Bend Rafting Trip

Horseshoe Bend Rafting Trip

As of October 1st, we are required to suspend our services of the Horseshoe Bend Rafting Day Tour due to changes in access to the Glen Canyon Dam tunnel provided through the Bureau of Reclamation. New trip options are coming in June 2024. 

Experience Glen Canyon Like Never Before

Wilderness River AdventuresCheck in at our River Headquarters in Page, AZ. 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. 

Our Horseshoe Bend Rafting Trips are completely family-friendly. They’re available for ages four and up. We even provide the chilled water and lemonade. Book your spot now!

Trip Highlights 

  • Glen Canyon Dam
  • Petroglyph Beach
  • Horseshoe Bend
  • Lees Ferry

See and experience all 15 miles of our Horseshoe Bend Rafting Trip in just a half day! It’s a must-see addition to your exploration of the American southwest.

This rafting trip lets you enjoy all the sites and stops of Glen Canyon in a convenient half-day format. It starts with a two-mile tunnel drive (and dinosaur tracks!) before you board your river craft. It continues to Petroglyph Beach and its fascinating artifacts. You’ll look up in awe at the soaring cliffs above Horseshoe Bend as you learn the stories of the ancestral Puebloan people who lived here. Afterward, you’ll enjoy a stunning motor-coach ride back from Lees Ferry to Page, passing Vermillion Cliffs, beautiful orchards, and historic structures along the way.

The Half-Day Horseshoe Bend Rafting Trip is open to guests ages four and up. Book your spot now!

NOTE: We require 12 full-fare passengers to operate a Half Day trip. Should that minimum not be reached, the trip will be canceled. See Rafting Trip Policies.
