Receive a morning pickup from your Flagstaff hotel, after which you’ll transfer out of town and up onto the Colorado Plateau, offering views of the ancient San Francisco Peaks which tower more than 12,600 feet (3,800 meters) above the desert below.
Continue your sightseeing drive by passing through the Painted Desert, stopping by the Cameron Trading Post where you can purchase a variety of artwork crafted by the local Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi tribes. You’ll proceed from here to Horseshoe Bend, a renowned clifftop overlook that looks down more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) to the river flowing below.
Leaving Horseshoe Bend, head to Glen Dam, where you’ll receive an included box lunch to enjoy surrounded by views of Glen Canyon and Lake Powell. Finish by stepping inside Antelope Canyon, a sandstone slot canyon formed by thousands of years of erosion. You’ll end your excursion with a drive back to your hotel in Flagstaff, watching as the sun casts a fiery glow across the Painted Desert landscape.
