Our extended trips are designed for those who desire a slower pace. These trips are two days longer than our regular summer schedule and feature a more leisurely pace with in-depth exploration at selected attraction sites. The temperatures are cooler; ideal for passengers who might be uncomfortable in the desert summer heat.
For those passengers who are unable to spend the full 15 days in the Canyon, we offer an upper trip length of seven days and a lower trip length of ten days concentrating on the many hiking and exploring opportunities within the heart of the Canyon. Each trip features unique hikes to seldom visited locations, side canyons, vistas, and waterfalls.
