Trip Motif National Parks Grand Canyon Rim To Rim : Journey Highlights






It’s not clear which is more challenging: snagging a reservation with Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, or hiking the canyon rim-to-rim. You achieve both on this epic adventure. As a warm-up to the rim-to-rim, you begin with a cool hike in the restricted-access Navajo Slot Canyons. The next day your guide leads the Grand Canyon descent down the North Kaibab Trail to the green oasis of Phantom Ranch, on the canyon floor. (All you have to carry is a decent-sized daypack.) Each step offers mind-boggling views. You have two nights and a full day to rest, hike, or explore this tranquil world-away. The hike out takes you up the Bright Angel Trail to your South Rim lodge. Unforgettable!

  • Phantom Ranch: Those who have tried and failed would argue that Phantom Ranch lodging reservations are among the most difficult in the world to get. .
  • Epic hiking: Yes, you have to be in good shape. But if you are, you should seize this experience while you can. Most of your gear is shuttled; all you have to carry is a daypack
  • Navajo slot canyons: The movement of light and shadow produces an ever-changing mood in these narrow, restricted-access canyons on the Navajo Reservation.
  • Insider's advantage: Our connections in the Grand Canyon region assure a true off the beaten path experience that you wouldn’t get on your own.

“You will feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment at the end of this journey, and rightly so. The experience will connect you deeply to this breathtaking landscape, and might just change your life." –Cory Lawrence, Off the Beaten Path CEO
