The most renowned Glen Canyon Nation Recreation Area, established by Congress in 1972, is the home of Lake Powell. The area is included of 1.25 million acres with the lake occupying only 13%, of the total area, which leaves a lot of opportunity to be explored by four-wheel drive.

Once you travel by boat a few miles from any of the marinas no doubt, you'll find yourself in another amazing world with a skyline unmarred by signs of civilization.

This amazing lake offers a lot of activities include swimming, scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling, boating and water skiing, hiking and sightseeing. It is also heaven for the photographers.  There are also an opportunity waiting for you to take a scenic flight by plane or helicopter over the lake, which provides a bird's eye view of how far some those 96 canyons extend from the main channel of Lake Powell.
