Four Season Guides began offering guided backpacking trips in Grand Canyon in 1999 with the simple mission of providing outstanding backcountry adventures to people interested in an active, outdoor-based vacation. Our passion for exploring the wild and beautiful landscapes of the Southwestern US led us to pursue a career dedicated to sharing this experience with anyone willing and able to join us on an adventure. We recognize the powerful effect that several days spent exploring incredible landscapes can have on a person’s well-being. We are here to provide a safe and comfortable opportunity for you to experience the magic of these amazing places first-hand.
