Grand Explorer: 3 Day Grand Canyon Adventure Itinerary
If you don’t have a lot of time, this Adventure Itinerary is a great way to see the best of Grand Canyon in only three days. Tusayan, AZ or Grand Canyon Village (South Rim) are the best places to start from, but Flagstaff, Williams, or Sedona will work as well. Once you're up and ready to explore, head out to the South Rim to take in the incredible scenic views and go on a short hike before heading to Peach Springs, AZ for your evening lodging. The next day will bring even more adventure as you splash through the rapids of the Colorado River on a guided day-long Grand Canyon whitewater rafting trip. Following a day on the water, next you’ll head to Sedona, AZ to hike and swim in two of its most famous red rock destinations: Red Rock and Slide Rock State Parks. After hiking through Sedona's Red Rocks, you can make your way to many other Grand Canyon or Southwest scenic destinations. This itinerary is best started from Tusayan, AZ or Grand Canyon Village and includes Grand Canyon National Park South Rim, Colorado River rafting, and Sedona, AZ. Read the full 3 day itinerary below.
