About Flagstaff

Grand Canyon tours from Flagstaff

   While Flagstaff is farther away from Grand Canyon than Williams, it is a great place to stay. As a university town with about 70,000 people, this city has the widest variety of lodging, restaurants, and activities. You can visit the Arizona Snowbowl, the excellent Museum of Northern Arizona, or Lowell Observatory. The San Francisco Peaks have many Forest Service trails and camping areas.

   Flagstaff is home to Northern Arizona University. Several National Monuments are nearby, featuring volcanoes and prehistoric ruins. Flagstaff is about 1.5 hours from Grand Canyon's South Rim viewpoints.

Ultimate Grand Canyon Tour from Flagstaff

Grand Canyon tours from Flagstaff

   Canyon Dave's tours from Flagstaff include all the major Grand Canyon viewpoints. The drive to the canyon from "Flag" (as the locals call it) is quite scenic. You will have views of many dormant volcanoes, forests of Ponderosa Pine, and possible sightings of pronghorn antelope. The antelope is Arizona's fastest and most beautiful hoofed animal (unless you are fond of cows).

   The Flagstaff to Grand Canyon tour takes in our very favorite canyon views, all stunning and begging for a photo. Canyon Dave Tours specializes in orchestrated but not memorized geology and wildlife discussions. The discussions of Geologic Time are especially enriching. The tour also features lunch (included in price).
