Do you want to really experience the Grand Canyon and soak up all of its beauty? Then the Grand Canyon Backpacking Trip is for you. You can choose between 3 or 4 days trips (+$75 for 4 days). We decent in the early morning using the South Kaibab Trail before arriving at our first campground Bright Angel Campground. Phantom Ranch and the Colorado River will be right next to us! 


Our second campground is beautiful, Indian Garden. We then hike out of the canyon the next day using the famous Bright Angel Trail. All trails are well maintained and the views are breathtaking. 


There's an option to have mules carry your camping gear down the canyon but availability is limited and must be made in advance. We can make the reservation for you by purchasing our Experience Plus PASS. 


We also have an option while camping at Bright Angel campground to have breakfast and/or dinner at Phantom Ranch located right next to the campground. (recommended)


This is by far my most popular trip and my favorite. You will soon see why!
