Without taking Inner Canyon trip your visit is to Grand Canyon is not complete. You will be taken to bottom of the grand canyon where you can enjoy boat riding and can have close look to wildlife. It is all together different experience.

My group of six family members (70 y.o. mom, and me, sisters, and brothers-in-law, all in our 30s and 40s) did the North Kaibab to Bright Angel hike over the course of 3 days. Took our time going down the North Kaibab, which was chilly (high 30s) at the top (5:30 a.m. start in late May), warming gradually through the... More

This trip was one we will be talking about for years to come! It is definitely not for those afraid of heights or with a fear of animals. We spent the night on the South Rim prior to our trip and highly recommend doing so since the morning start is very early and you have to check in for a... More

Less than 1% of the people who visit Grand Canyon get to the Inner Canyon. Many of them get there on mules...only the tough actually hike down and back up. The views are breathtaking, the trails & elevation changes push the physical and mental limits and the weather extremes challenge even the most experienced hikers. This is not for the... More

Camping for 7 days without cell phones or any other contact with the outside. For 188 miles on the Colorado River we went through 120 rapids. The water was 48 degrees. The wilderness is what makes you want to live there forever.

So different, so ancient - pick and black granite lines the walls. Actual trees and beach quality sand further down. You can't see this section from the top - you need to hike in to see it.

Rafting the Colorado River with Arizona River Runners for 6 days and 5 nights. What a fantastic trip with plenty of rapids and trips to side Canyons. Great equipment, great guides, great food and grand adventure.

Nothing compares with looking up at the magnificence, especially if the guide is good and knows both natural and human history. Petroglyphs, birds, and very few campsites to ruin the views. Wear 50 spf sunscreen, wide brim hat, sunglasses, and bring a kerchief to dip in the water and put around your neck to stay cool. Drink LOTS of water!

I keep getting closer every time I go, but, I review this for those who are like me, or, those who just want to get a taste of the Inner Canyon. You don't have to go all the way to experience what it's like inside... and this time of year? It is HOT! Grab your boots, water and head down... More

Be sure to start off with plenty of water. Several water spots were shut down due to a water pipe break. Be sure to read the board before starting out. Each time we hike down to the bottom, we always seem to spot something different.
