Grand Canyon Backpacking Guides
Several companies provides fully guided multi-day hikes to Havasu Falls and Grand Canyon National Park, with each trip being led by a professional backcountry guide. Professional guides have medical training, an intimate knowledge of all aspects of the Grand Canyon, and a passion for what they do. All necessary gear, backcountry permits, and meals are typically included in your trip.
While there are several fun day hikes, the best way to experience all the Canyon has to offer is through a backpacking trip. Whether you visit Havasupai Falls, Indian Gardens, Bright Angel camp ground, Horseshoe Mesa, or do a Rim to Rim or New Hance Loop, you'll be left memories that will last a lifetime!
There are many different reasons people choose a multi-day trekking or backpacking trip when they come to the Grand Canyon. Your guide is a safety net to make you feel comfortable in a beautiful, but sometimes harsh and rugged landscape. A guided hike takes away the hassles of the complex logistics of planning a Grand Canyon Adventure. Your guides will set up camp, carry food and extra gear, prepare your meals, and even wash the dishes!
The best reason to do a guided trip, however, is the benefit of a Grand Canyon education. A knowledgeable Grand Canyon guide provides a totally different Grand Canyon experience. Without someone who has intimate knowledge of the Canyon, you're just hiking in the dark!
