The sate of Arizona gets its name from the Indian word "arizonac" which means "short lasting spring". Arizona is also called the Grand Canyon State in so much as this most magnificent of natural monuments is situated on Arizona territory.  Phoenix tours to the Grand Canyon are very popular among Phoenix sightseeing.

The Grand Canyon is not just any canyon: numerous other canyons, each of which is unique in it's own way are connected to it and form the Grand Canyon National park - one of the most attractive natural locations for tourists coming for Phoenix sightseeing.  

Although millions of tourists come to see the most well-known parts of the Grand Canyon, there are a great deal of places where one can easily find a place where he or she can remain absolutely alone with nature - this idea is very important for some of us, as far as it is a perfect place and state for meditation and thoughts. For example Fern-Glen-Canyon which is famous for its microclimate and its unique flowers and other rich and exotic plants that grow in the middle of the desert. While visiting the Grand Canyon don't forget to look into Nort-Canyon-Vosh: you will see quiet lakes with blue water which are surrounded by a natural formation of rocks and cliffs.

The Colorado River flows at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. A very remarkable fact is that before 1948 no more than 100 persons could cover the whole length of the river, but today Colorado River boat tours are very popular and every year thousands of people come here to make such trips, to evaluate their strengths and abilities. There are several rapids on the way, and the most dangerous is Lava-Rapids. Try it if you really want to get your adrenalin pumping. In accordance with the international classification of white water rivers, the Colorado River ranks as one of the most difficult, while rafting downstream on the Colorado River is treated as one of the best in North America.

During traveling Phoenix travels travelers have a great opportunity to see marvelous landscapes and examples of Indian culture, to gaze upon wild nature and wild animals living in desert.
