Grand Canyon Mule-Supported Trips

Grand Canyon Guided Mule-Supported Trips

On our Horse Supported trips your gear is carried by mules or horses, allowing you to hike with only a light day pack and enjoy a greater diversity of fresh foods than on a backpacking trip.

Fantastic for families, people with limited time, and for a broad range of ages and abilities, the Mule-assisted Grand Canyon Classic Tour and Phantom Ranch tours (100% hiking trips) are opportunities to experience the fullness of the Grand Canyon with a higher level of comfort than a backpacking trip. You get to fully soak up the beauty as you hike with just a small, top-of-the-line backpack we provide, while mules carry your belongings and our group gear down and back up!

Enjoy starting at the popular South Rim, hiking classic trails with quintessential views, visiting historic Phantom Ranch, camping at breathtaking Bright Angel Campground or staying at the Ranch, spending time at the Colorado River, and hiking by ancient Havasupai Gardens. You can just relax and enjoy yourself, as we provide all the gear, tasty meals, and a professional guide. These hikes are all-around tastes of the Grand Canyon in a relatively short amount of time – don’t miss it!
