Want to know what it’s like to join the fearless few?
The rim-to-rim tour is one of the most iconic hikes in the Grand Canyon. Spanning the length of the so-called “corridor”, the trek takes ambitious travelers all the way from the South to the North Rim along a mixture of classic trails and hidden gems.
Given its remoteness, variable weather, and extreme altitude changes, it’s a trip reserved for the most tenacious of trekkers. However, those that can walk the walk are treated to profound solitude, spectacular sights, and some of the greatest hiking the Canyon has to offer.
