This journey begins with a 12-mile, 3½ hour calm water raft trip down the Colorado River to Willow Beach, Arizona.  This soft adventure gently flows from the very base of the Hoover Dam, affording a view and perspective of the dam available nowhere else.  Along the way, expert guides point out the soaring birds of prey, the gravity defying bighorn sheep, and the unexpected waterfalls and bubbling hot springs.

Lunch is served on a romantic sandy beach along the river.

At Willow Beach, you will board one of our 4x4s or custom VIP mini-coaches for a beautiful and scenic drive to Hoover Dam.

Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, Hoover Dam is the highest structure of its kind in the world.  It is an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design, and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of man's outstanding ability to overcome the desert's summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river, and the extreme hazards of great heights on the chasm's sheer walls.

Take a look from the interior base of the dam into the generator room, and watch the fascinating Hoover Dam movie with ample time for breathtaking views from the top of the dam.

A stop at the eastern edge of the chasm in Arizona provides fabulous views of the dam and Lake Mead, the world's largest man-made lake.

In addition, there are fabulous photo ops of the new Hoover Dam Bridge.

Before returning to Las Vegas, we stop at a local park where herds of bighorn sheep often come down from the surrounding mountains to gather and graze on the sweet grass.
