Travel Information

Located in the arid Northeast region of Arizona, the city of Page originally began as a temporary housing community for the workers constructing the Glen Canyon Dam. Page has since emerged as a young and vibrant community nestled amidst the natural beauty of Glen Canyon, surrounded by a sandstone landscape. The city is also just minutes from Lake Powell, a popular summer destination that features boating, water sports, and an incredible 2,000 miles of shoreline. Only 5 driving hours from both Phoenix and Las Vegas, Page is the site of one of Papillon's many launching points for air tours and activities.
