We take care of everything – reservations, fees, meals and transportation – while you get to relax and enjoy a fantastic hiking experience at one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Your guide will lead you on two hikes off the North Rim and three hikes off the South 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.

Each night you’ll return to your hotel in the cool pine forests of the rims. You’ll finish each day with a hot shower, tasty dinners (restaurant and outdoor meals) and relaxing evening. Your guide will also lead moon-lit walks along the edge of the Canyon for those interested.
