This comprehensive tour includes our 3 day Havasu Falls camping tour (lodging available for additional fee) and a guided day hike on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. The Havasupai waterfalls are a world famous hiking destination nestled in the heart of Grand Canyon and is home to the Havasupai Native Americans. You will spend 3 days hiking and exploring the blue-green waters of Havasu Creek and its amazing waterfalls with your knowledgeable guide, while camping creek side each night under the starry skies.

One night of lodging in Flagstaff is included in this 4 day Grand Canyon tour. Our Two Canyons Tour is all inclusive.

We also provide one night's lodging at the Drury Inn and Suites in Flagstaff in-between the Havasu Falls Tour and the South Rim guided day hike. Come join us for the ultimate Grand Canyon adventure!
Transportation from Scottsdale Included.
Spend your first three days camping below the rim in the Havasu Falls area. Our expert guides, will introduce you to distinct geology visible only here. We will camp for two nights adjacent to the waterfalls deep in the heart of the Havasupai Indians’ (people of the blue-green waters) ancestral home. After this adventure, we will head back to Flagstaff for a night stay at the Drury Inn (hotel cost included in the price of your tour).The next morning we take you to the historic Grand Canyon National Park for a full day of hiking and touring the South Rim. This part of the park has the most spectacular views across the gorge! Returning to Scottsdale in thelate afternoon/early evening will complete your trip with us.
We pick you up from Scottsdale, AZ at 5:00am. We embark on scenic drive to the top of Hualapai Canyon, andthen begin our trek walking down to the junction of Havasu Canyon and then down further to our camp. The trail drops deeper and deeper as we watch the rock layers change and become older. (Rock formations at the bottom of the Grand Canyon are over two billion years old, half the age of the earth.)
Eight miles down we pass through the Havasupai Tribal village of Supai. In another two miles, we arrive at our shaded camp area. We unload the gear and food and set up our camp. While the guide prepares a delicious dinner, enjoy your chance to splash around in Havasu Falls. After a long day of driving followed by the journey down the canyon, a restful evening is well earned by all.
You awaken to the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast being prepared by your guide. Then we are off for a day of exploring the canyon and the incredible waterfalls. We will visit the various falls. Mooney Falls, the largest of the three main falls by our camp is over 200 feet high, and what a sight it is! To reach the bottom is a challenging descent down a chain ladder through rock tunnels. Of course, for the faint of heart this is considered an option that does not have to be done and the view from the top is just as beautiful.
We enjoy a deli lunch and then an afternoon of exploring another waterfall or just relaxing by the creek side. Maybe this is your time to meditate and just look at the beautiful rock faces above you, take a swim or enjoy a little siesta. Another wonderful dinner is prepared before the shadows deepen. The night skies are a myriad of stars you may never have seen before. Arizona skies are renowned for their stargazing and several astronomical observatories are spread throughout the state.
Eventually it’s time to burrow into your tent for another evening of deep sleep. You may find your dreams take you to places you never imagined, being here in the canyon seems to do that.
We awake and begin preparations for our return to the top. It seems that the views going up the canyon are always different than on the way down. We reach the trailhead by early afternoon, and arrive in Flagstaff by about 4:00 for dinner on your own (not included) and a restful night’s sleep in your included hotel room.
We leave your hotel early for our Grand Canyon south rim day hike. This location offers spectacular views of the main corridor of the canyon, spanning over 20 miles from one side to the other and along the length of the Colorado River far below. Your guide will assist you in determining the best trail for your group based on personal goals, fitness levels, desired time on trail, weather, etc. We could hike down the South Kaibab Trail to Skeleton Point where you can see the river, down Bright Angel Trail to 3 mile rest house or one of many other trails. We return to the top and travel along the rim trail for more spectacular views of the canyon before returning to Scottsdale/Phoenix.
