Lake Powell Resort's Rainbow Bridge Boat trip is a must-do! First of all, the resort itself is great. After having seen the old-style town of Page which is the only town anywhere near, we were surprised at the beautiful, very modern resort. We picked up a breakfast sandwich to take with us on the boat and boarded. Since I have... More

the boat trip into Rainbow Bridge National Monument was so relaxing and gorgeous. We enjoyed the wheelchair accessible paved pathway from the boat dock up to the viewpoint and the arch got more and more dramatics we approached it.

You need a boat to get here, or you can hike in from land. We boated in and did the short hike to get to the arch. Bring plenty of water; it gets hot and dry out here. Check out the dinosaur tracks nearby, and take some time to sit under the arch.

This is a true marvel of nature. I didn't realize it is so majestic from its pictures. It is a bit of an effort to reach here but it was worth it. If going in summer, make sure you have proper sun protection and lots of water. This area is very dry with minimal facilities.

We made the trip on a private boat with some friends. It's a long boat ride but we were able to break it up by seeing other things along the way. Lake Powell is worth the trip on it's own! The hike is longer now than it used to be. Water levels are low. The hike is not difficult but... More

Most people see the Rainbow Bridge via the boat trip. I met a couple on the boat who were also going to the Bridge overland. You have to get a Navajo guide who takes care of the tribal permits and makes sure you don't get lost. But I did it by boat so my review. The Rainbow Bridge is about... More

Most of the people visit the rainbow bridge by boat. It´s a long, expensive but very nice trip to get there. You do not have much time at the bridge so you have to hurry a bit. If you see the bridge you cannot imagine it´s a natural bridge. It looks like a solid, human construction. But it IS natural.... More

It was tough to get to. Mind you, not as tough as for those who had to hike days to get there in the last millenium, but still a long day. A spiratual experience once we arrived. It used to be that the boats traveled all the way to the monument when the water was higher. Still, an awe striking... More
