Grand Canyon Hiking Tours

Our Grand Canyon hiking tours explore a vast and rigorous landscape and embrace a spectacular array of geological and historical wonders.

This rugged and remote region, where bold plateaus and multi-hued cliffs run for distances that defy human perspective, offers some of the best hiking in the world. Expanding over 277 miles in length, averaging 10 miles in width and over 1 mile deep, it is understandable why this great chasm is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Even today, this unspoiled natural landscape remains a frontier. A Grand Canyon hiking tour offers an incredible opportunity to explore shimmering waterfalls, ancient ruins, unimaginable vistas, and spectacular rock formations. Choose from a range of guided backpacking trips, mule-assisted camping and hiking tours, lodge-based tours and basecamp adventures. Experience a Grand Canyon hiking tour with Four Season Guides for the unforgettable vacation of a lifetime!

Your trip will be led by a professional, licensed Grand Canyon backcountry guide. All guides are highly experienced and thoroughly trained in emergency wilderness medicine (Wilderness First Responder and CPR certified). They carry extensive first-aid supplies, as well as emergency communication devices. In addition to their extensive backcountry knowledge and skills, our guides are extremely knowledgeable in all things Grand Canyon: geology, ecology, human history, and conservation. They are also skilled backcountry chefs, serving up delicious and nourishing meals every step of the way. Your backcountry hiking experience will surely be enhanced by the well-rounded skill sets our guides bring to every adventure.

Backpacking Tours

If you’re looking to explore all that the vast Grand Canyon backcountry has to offer, then a guided backpacking tour is for you! We carry everything we need on our backs for the duration of the trip. Our backpacking tours delve deep into the hidden wonders found below the rim and offer opportunities for exquisite solitude and discovery. All Grand Canyon backpacking tours include nearly all necessary gear (top-quality backpacks, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, tents, trekking poles, cooking and eating gear), all food for the duration of the trip, transportation to/from trailheads via Flagstaff, AZ, and a professional, knowledgeable Grand Canyon guide. The only things you need to bring are your personal clothing and footwear, raingear, personal toiletries, headlamp, and water bottles or hydration bladder.

Basecamp Adventures

Enjoy the opportunity to hike and explore a wide variety of trails, viewpoints, and local secrets by day and spend your nights camping beneath the stars. Shady forests, evening campfires, and outstanding stargazing are a welcome treat on the Canyon’s mile-high rims. Or if you prefer a more strenuous endeavor, descend to the bottom of Grand Canyon for a vastly different perspective, staring up to the rims from the depths. Basecamp hiking tours are all-inclusive and provide all necessary gear (day packs, trekking poles, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, all cooking and eating gear), delicious meals, and a professional, knowledgeable Grand Canyon guide to lead you safely, keep you well-fed, and enhance your Grand Canyon experience with a wealth of fascinating information.
