Be one of those rare people who rewards themselves with a once-in-a-lifetime rim-to-rim Grand Canyon backpacking adventure.

Very few of Grand Canyon National Park’s annual five million visitors spend at least one night below the rim of the canyon. Even if you are not an avid backpacker or hiker, that can be you.

This trip is an exceptional value with a dynamic itinerary and unique trip activities.

We travel from Las Vegas through the majesty of Zion National Park, the red-rock spires of Bryce Canyon National Park, hike a slot canyon, view ancient ruins and petroglyphs, meet rugged locals impassioned with the wild beauty they live in, camp at the foot of the Escalante Bench and float down the Colorado River before arriving at the Grand Canyon’s North Rim(see map)

The high country foliage is turning ruby and amber with occasional frosty mornings in the autumn. Deep in the immense architecture of the Grand Canyon it is balmy, luminous, and the single, jagged-edged turquoise stained glass skylight of the great stone cathedral looms a mile above, as if calling attention to what is highest within oneself. Come and listen. What will you hear?
