Grand Canyon National Park Rim to Rim Hiking Tour

The Grand Canyon is such an unbelievable place and geological phenomenon, and we truly believe that, if you’re a hiker to the core, at some time in your life you need to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.  For this trip we will experience of this popular National Park from top to bottom in a long weekend. We’ll take the spectacular descent from the north rim to the bottom of the canyon and the do or die ascent back up to the south rim.    Come prepared for the challenging and breathtaking descent into the Grand Canyon, from the ponderosa forests at the rim through the layers of Kaibab limestone, Coconino sandstone and hermit shale to the Colorado at the base of the Canyon. The variety within the Canyon is overwhelming. The land forms, the colors, the spectacular vistas, that first sighting of the Colorado – every switchback along the trail is its own visual and sensual adventure.

The Accommodations:

To complement the grand experience, we stay in historic lodges.  We first stay on the north side at the quirky Cliff Dwellers Lodge, hidden in the Vermillion cliffs.  We move to the only lodging below the rim of Grand Canyon at Phantom Ranch, whose main lodge and rustic cabins were built in the 1920’s.  Our final hurrah is at at the famed Kachina Lodge, named for a Hopi Kachina, and overlooking the canyon from the south rim.
