The North Rim is a summer paradise with only 10% of the visitation the South Rim gets, cooler temperatures, shaded forests, more wildlife, and wonderful, remote areas with fantastic views. This tour is an opportunity to get to know the North Rim by enjoying the well-known highlights like Bright Angel Point and the historic Grand Canyon Lodge, as well as exploring remote areas that few people know about. It’s also an extraordinarily great camping experience that feels a lot more like Colorado than the Grand Canyon. We start this trip off with a hike on the South Rim as well, for an all-around experience of Grand Canyon National Park!
Your guide will lead you on 1 hike off the South Rim and 3 hikes off the North Rim – the challenge of the treks will vary to allow for recovery and relaxation in between. We’ve hand-picked the hikes specifically for their uniqueness, adventure and scenic beauty. Some of the highlights include breathtaking views, incredible natural and cultural history, views of the Colorado River, stunning conifer and Aspen forests, ancient fossils, and remote wilderness. Each night you’ll return to camp in the cool pine forests of the North Rim. A tasty dinner, comfortable camp, cozy campfire, and mind-blowing star-filled sky will be your setting in the evenings.
