Want an amazing way to see one of the spectacular Seven Wonders of the World? Take a Grand Canyon float tour. Nothing quite compares to the experience of seeing the canyon from the bottom up while going down the Colorado River on a pontoon boat. Indeed, it's a great adventure that's ideal for travelers of all ages.

These all-inclusive rafting trips are fun and convenient, too. All your needs are taken care of, including food and transportation to and from the river. Bring your swimming suit because you're probably going to want to go swimming, especially if you go during the summer months. And let's face it: taking a leisurely swim on the Colorado is an event that not too many can claim to have done.

When you do anything that includes being out in the sun it's a great idea to keep sunscreen on hand. I also recommend you bring a brimmed hat, a long-sleeved shirt, a pair of sunglasses and an extra set of dry clothes. Coming prepared allows you sit back while your river pilot reveals facts and anecdotes about the river in a way that will captivate all.

The South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is where the best smooth-water tours launch. Trips start with either a bus ride or plane flight to Page, AZ. There you'll motor to the base of massive Glen Canyon Dam where you'll board your adventure-grade pontoon raft. Another great float trip leaves from Vegas. It starts from the base of Hoover Dam and comes with a helicopter ride.

Rafting trips are a natural "team builder" as they bring family and friends closer when they are done. Boats can hold up to 19 people, making them ideal for family reunions, youth groups, scouts and private charters. The unusual beauty and natural perspective will be remembered by all for lifetime.

The Grand Canyon is located in the northern part of Arizona. Most associated the state with desert. However, if you go to the northern part, you gain elevation and are amid pine trees, mountain peaks and alpine meadows. Skiing and hiking are popular pastimes. But the activity that puts this region on the map is Colorado River rafting.

The river supports an abundance of wildlife including the rare Big Horn Sheep. Flora and fauna is also unique to the area. In many cases, you'll see things that only exist one-mile down from the rim! Indeed, it's a special atmosphere and a place you definitely want to spend in the company of family and friends.

You can see other famous places, too, during this water trip. Highlights include the Navajo Indian Reservation, Painted Desert, Glen Canyon Dam, Antelope Canyon and Lee's Ferry. Smooth-water trips encounter no white water so it's safe for children as young as four. Don't get the impression that this trip lacks excitement. There are plenty of thrills to keep both kids and adults on the edge of their seats.

The Grand Canyon float tour is as remarkable as you may think; it's probably better than one thinks actually. Make sure that you make plans early and get the tickets as soon as possible. Seats go fast, especially during peak season, so RSVP as soon as you confirm when you want to go.
