Originally little more than a simple camp constructed to house workers who built a nearby dam on the Colorado River, Page is now a popular stop for travelers preparing a trip to Arizona's canyon country.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Gunfighter Canyon. Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Antelope Canyon will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Rainbow Bridge National Monument, admire the engineering at Glen Canyon Dam Overlook, take some stellar pictures from Horseshoe Bend, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Powell.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Page vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Madrid, Spain to Page is an approximately 16-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 8 hours traveling from Madrid to Page. When traveling from Madrid in March, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Page: temperatures range from 21°C by day to 6°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Chinle.
