This is the most classic hike in Grand Canyon but at a much quieter time of year! This tour offers you the opportunity to hike Rim to Rim when no one else is doing it. We begin the hike on the South Kaibab Trail, descending 7 miles to Bright Angel Campground in the bottom of the Canyon and a short walk from the Colorado River and historic Phantom Ranch. Next we continue along the North Kaibab Trail to Cottonwood Campground, relishing in the vastly different views and feel of the North Rim. Day 3 will be spent day hiking towards the North Rim and back, with another night at Cottonwood before retracing our steps to Bright Angel Campground on Day 4. On Day 5, we will pack our tents and sleeping bags on mules and head up the Bright Angel Trail with lighter backpacks to the South Rim. A 6-day itinerary includes a final night at Indian Garden Campground.
A Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hiking tour is the finest way to experience what this incredible National Park has to offer. Since 1999, this has been one of our most popular tours and our guides are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable in the business. Join us for the trip of a lifetime!
