Grand Canyon Hiking Trips
Grand Canyon guided hiking trips are great for novice to experienced hikers. Take on the challenge of backpacking and camping the Grand Canyon South Rim, North Rim and Havasupai areas with experienced guides. There's nothing like experiencing the Grand Canyon on your own two feet. Experienced guides offer interesting information about the Canyon as well as provide a little extra confidence on the trail. Even some of the more experienced hikers can miscalculate weather, impact of temperature, pace, or amount of supplies needed to hike certain trails of the Grand Canyon safely. If you're not accustomed to dry, desert hiking conditions, we recommend a guided hike on your first hiking trip down the Grand Canyon.
There are literally dozens of guided hiking trails to choose from, but here are a select few popular hikes:
- Havasupai Falls
- Indian Gardens
- Bright Angel Loop
- Horseshoe Mesa
- Rim to Rim
