Lake Powell can be seen on our two, three and six day tours. 

Lake Powell was formed when the Glen Canyon Dam was flooded, drowning literally hundreds of canyons.  Today it is possible to take a boat through these canyons and see the colorful rock cliffs and shapes towering from the blue waters. 

After Lake Mead, Lake Powell is the largest man made reservoir in the United States.  With water levels at historic lows, visitors can see rocks, cliffs and parts of canyons that have not been visible to the human eye for decades.

The road to Page, the little town on Lake Powell, takes you through Navajo Nation land, where you will have the opportunity of sampling fry bread and Navajo Tacos, while you shop for turquoise jewelry from roadside stands.  Depending on where you're coming from, you may also travel alongside the Vermilion Cliffs, which radiate amazing colors at sunset and sunrise.

Conservationists believe that Glen Canyon Dam was a huge mistake, drowning, as it did, approximately 183 miles of canyon country back into Utah.  Agree or not, millions of people every year visit Lake Powell and Page, to take in the incredible sights of the colorful canyons and rocks towering from the blue waters.  Most Bryce Canyon tours which go to Lake Powell include a boat ride through the partially submerged canyons.

The mountains that generally provide the snow pack from which Lake Powell gets its water are in the fifth year of a bad drought.  The water level in Lake Powell is almost 100 feet down from its highpoint (see the picture at left, above, where the water level normally reaches the top of the cliffs).  This means that there has not been a better time to see Lake Powell since the area was flooded back in the 1960's.
