Description

Your guide will collect you from your hotel and take you to the Hoover Dam. There you will then board a large inflatable boat for a unique view of the dam.

Your down-river journey commences from the foot of the dam and continues for approximately 19km (12 miles). The calm waters of the river will allow you to observe animals and plants as you pass; your guide will even help you to identify any birds of prey, mountain sheep, waterfalls and geysers you might come across during the trip.

Break for lunch on the picturesque Willow Beach – a comfortable spot on the sandy riverbank. After lunch, you'll swap your raft for either a 4x4 or a luxury van in which you'll make your way back to Hoover Dam.

A spectacular road leads to the dam and the Visitor Center. From here you can enjoy amazing views over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam Bridge, which crosses the canyon. Your visit also includes a tour inside the dam to see the generator room.

On the way back, you will stop off at a small park which is home to many mountain sheep. Then you will be dropped off back at your hotel.

    • Une super aventure. Les bateaux sont de grosses embarcations à moteur donc il ne faut pas s'attendre à être mouillé, mais un super guide et des paysages magnifiques. Une super prise en charge pour le transfert jusqu'au Hoover Dam où on a bien le temps de profiter de l'endroit.
