Grand Canyon Jeep Tours
You haven’t seen the Grand Canyon until you’ve seen it from out the window of a rugged yet comfortable Jeep 4×4. These safaris are available from both the Grand Canyon itself and from several of the nearby cities, such as Sedona, Flagstaff, Williams, and Las Vegas. On them, you’ll travel in a temperature-controlled or open-air 4×4, while a professional driver takes you around and even down into the Grand Canyon.
The variety of Grand Canyon Jeep tours is too numerous to count, but they share in the impressive views that they can achieve. One excursion from Sedona will take you through fabulous Oak Creek Canyon and past the San Francisco Peaks, and upon reaching the Grand Canyon, breaks for lunch and sightseeing in the Grand Canyon Village. Then it’s back into the vehicle for a ride down the Desert View Drive, with stops at numerous scenic vistas before exiting at the East Rim. The whole trip takes approximately 11 hours.
Jeep tours are popular during the sunset hours, as well. One afternoon expedition will transport you over a stagecoach trail that dates back to the late-19th century for several hours of scenic travel. You’ll even visit the Grandview Lookout Tower, from which you’ll be able to view both the Grand Canyon and the Painted Desert as the sun falls to the west. The colors are positively captivating! At the same time, other Jeep treks choose the Desert View Watchtower as their location for soaking up the sunset.
For still another option that’s available from Flagstaff and Williams, AZ, consider taking a Jeep tour down into the Grand Canyon. These adventurous outings descend some 4,000 ft. for a new perspective on the Inner Canyon, the canyon walls, and the Colorado River. From there, as well, you’ll get to enjoy lunch, go for an afternoon hike and swim, and spot burros and big horn sheep. This trip into the Inner Canyon lasts between nine and ten hours, depending on where you’re scheduled for pickup.
Now that you’ve read up on Jeep tours to the Grand Canyon, you’re in a perfect position to make a decision on which one you’re going to take. So what’s it going to be?
