The best way to really see what the Grand Canyon has to offer is by foot. As one ventures below the rim of the Grand Canyon youll experience things you never even imagined from up top. With each step you'll venture deeper into the heart of the Grand Canyon and experience things 98% of other park visitors never will.
There are two ways to hike the Grand Canyon on a guided tour. One is a moderate to strenuous day hike on one of the many trails off the Rim of the Canyon. Almost all of these guided day hikes take place from the Grand Canyons South Rim near Grand Canyon Village on trails such as the South Kaibab or Bright Angel. For the more adventurous, a multi-day backpacking trip will unveil the Canyons true spirit. These trips usually range from 3-5 days, and undertake hikes such as Havasu Falls and the Rim to Rim two of the canyons classic journeys.
These guided hiking and backpacking trips offer transportation from Flagstaff, Williams, the South Rim, and Phoenix. Hiking tours are offered all year round, but spring and fall usually have the best weather.
