Custom touring the South Kaibab Trail with your friends and family is the perfect intro to hiking and an even better insight into the Grand Canyon. Go deep into the canyon by following wide, well-maintained trails following ridge lines. Collect scenic views along the way until you gasp upon reaching the Ooh Aah Point, serving you with the canyon’s unobstructed panorama. Following the hike and a lunch break, jump into your comfy SUV and tour the South Rim.

What you get on this adventure:
What’s not included:
The best thing about hiking tours in the Grand Canyon is that there are incredible options for all skill levels. For beginner hikes, if you can walk around 4 hours with little elevation gain, you are good to go! Intermediate hikes in the Grand Canyon will see a little more change in elevation and hikes will start to increase in length, hiking anywhere between four to five hours. Advanced hikes are full-day treks, meaning at least 8 hours, with steep descents and challenging switchbacks.
Keep in mind, the weather in summer can be very hot and you’ll also be packing a daypack filled with water and other things you’ll need throughout the day. Hikers who venture into the interior of the Canyon from May through September can expect daytime temperatures to regularly exceed 100°F (38°C), and may even climb above 120°F (49°C) during the hottest days in the summer. Such conditions will challenge even strong and fit individuals, so be ready.
Here’s a list of the equipment you need to bring:
Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.
