Tours to the Grand CanyonTours to the Grand Canyon:

The majestic Grand Canyon National Park is one of the world’s premier natural attraction. It is a panoramic splendour that will transform your perceptions of the world and its sheer size and pristine purity is humbling.

It is a magnificent gift from millions of years ago.

Every year it is visited by over 5 million travellers who are all eager to experience the breathtaking South and North Rim.

Statistics:

The Grand Canyon is 277 river-miles (446 km) long, approximately 18 miles (29 km) wide at the widest point, and a steep mile (1.6 km) deep.

The best way to see it rim to rim is by taking a one-day bus excursion.

There are so many exciting and memorable things to do there, for example, you can swim in the blue-green waters of Havasu Falls,  go backpacking or day hiking, or go on a longer trip into the Grand Canyon’s back-country. You can raft from the top to the bottom of the Canyon river path, swoop over the Canyons on a Helicopter, or take a Sky Walk., trek down on a mule and camp over-night at the Canyon.

Whatever you choose to do – it’ll be a life changing experience.

  Hiking Tours to the Grand Canyon

Tours to the Grand Canyon

One of the most personally rewarding ways to see the Grand Canyon is by hiking. However, getting down to the bottom of the canyon and then back up to the rim in one day is an extremely strenuous challenge. The floor of the Canyon valley is not accessible by car, so the only way down is by foot or on a mule, that’s why it is a very good idea to join an organized tour.

Generally tours include high quality hiking equipment, meals/snacks, water replenishment, park fees and ground transportation, and hence are cost effective.

A highly experienced, trained & certified guide accompanies every trek to guide the hikers and prepare meals.

More Info:

Most visitors land at Las Vegas and start their holiday to the Grand Canyon from there.

They can take a one day guided van tour from Las Vegas. Alternatively, you can take a 2-3 day vacation staying at Williams or Flagstaff in Arizona.

Some drive by the Hoover Dam across the Colorado River in their own car.

Apart from the tough hikes Grand Canyon tours make perfect family adventure holidays. One day in the Canyon would be worth a hundred geography lessons!
