Description:

Discover the secrets and breathtaking vistas of the Grand Canyon by exploring its interior on a day hike with an extremely knowledgeable and certified guide. Experience the profound depth and wonder of the canyon with a picnic lunch along the rim and take a hike or visit several sightseeing stops.

Along the rim of the canyon, enjoy a picnic lunch followed by either a scenic 3-mile (4.8-km) walk or sightseeing stops at the Grand Canyon Village, Lipan Point, and Moran Point. Along the South Rim admire some of the widest and deepest views of the Grand Canyon and get a glimpse of the mighty Colorado River.

For a closer look at the exquisite scenery, take a 1-mile (1.6-km) nature walk along the South Rim and gaze 14 miles (22.5 km) across to the North Rim. Next, climb to the top of the Desert View Watchtower for panoramic vistas that take your breath away before your journey continues with views of the western edge of the Painted Desert and the Little Colorado River Gorge.

As you descend from 7,000 feet (2,133 m) above sea level, see the spectacular Colorado River Gorge and the buttes of the South Rim. Before you return to your hotel, stop at the Native American reservation for a chance to shop for authentic Navajo souvenirs at the historic Cameron Trading Post.
