DAY 1: DRIVE FROM SCOTTSDALE/PHOENIX TO THE GRAND CANYON CAVERNS INN

1:30pm – Meet in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites in Old Town Scottsdale.

As we gain elevation, we will travel across the Colorado Plateau to the Grand Canyon Caverns Inn. Here we will enjoy dinner as your guides brief you on the following morning’s activities and provide an overview of your guided hiking trip in Havasupai. Hiking: None Meals: Breakfast and lunch on your own, dinner included Lodging: Grand Canyon Caverns Inn

DAY 2: DESCEND INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE GRAND CANYON

DAY 2: DESCEND INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE GRAND CANYON

After an early breakfast, we will drive the short distance to the trailhead, which is perched on the edge of the canyon. It is called Hualapai Hilltop (pronounced “Walapai”) and is the only land travel access to Havasupai. Starting at an elevation of 5,200 feet, the trail to Havasupai switchbacks down for 1.5 miles until it reaches a dry streambed and levels out. After a trailside lunch, the canyon walls seem to grow taller alongside the trail as you descend deeper into the labyrinthine red sandstone of Hualapai Canyon. At mile 8 in our hike the canyon begins to widen and vegetation abounds as you enter the village of Supai, the most remote village in the U.S., where even the mail still arrives by pack animal. Here at 3,200 feet, after a welcome rest stop, the Cottonwood-lined paths will lead you through the village and into the canyon’s backcountry. A little further down the trail, you hike past 70ft. New Navajo Falls, 35 ft. Rock Falls and 100 ft. Havasu Falls. Soon after, you will find our fully equipped base camp awaiting your arrival. Estimated arrival time is between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Use the afternoon to explore the Havasupai campground while your guides prepare dinner. Sleep under the stars or retire to your spacious tent for a peaceful night of slumber. Hiking: 10 miles Meals: All meals included, breakfast at Grand Canyon Caverns, lunch on the trail, dinner in camp Lodging: Established campground in Havasupai  

Havasupai Campground

Grand Canyon Arizona

Havasupai CampgroundConsidered "primitive" or "rustic", the campgrounds are rich with lush vegetation: towering cottonwood trees; and a plethora of crawling grapevines. Havasu Creek flows alongside the entire length of the campground, which takes most of the real estate between Havasu and Mooney Falls. Enjoy relaxing in the shade and a quick dip in the conveniently close creek to cool off. Take a jaunt to the spring water fill up station to top off your drinking and cooking water supplies. As the night comes quick in the canyon, slip off to sleep with the constant bubbling of the water as it complains on it's way to yet another plunge not far downstream. Even during the busiest times of year, there is enough room for everyone and some spots might even remain a bit secluded. But there always seems to be a good vibe in the campground - a kind of adventurer camaraderie. Amenities include: Spring water (please treat or purify before consumption), Composting toilets, Picnic tables, Day Ranger available from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. for assistance, Night security available during the tourist season from 7 p.m. - 5 a.m. for assistance, - Showers are not available, but you may bathe in the creek with biodegradable soap, and no campfires are permitted. Trash must be packed out of the canyon.

DAY 3: EXPLORING GRAND CANYON’S HIDDEN TREASURES

DAY 3: EXPLORING GRAND CANYON’S HIDDEN TREASURES

Awaken in camp, nestled beneath the towering cottonwood trees along the banks of Havasu Creek and a short walk from the canyon’s enormous waterfalls. You will find fresh-brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast waiting in the camp kitchen. Every morning and afternoon your guides will lead you on hikes around Havasupai, some of the most spectacular and awe-inspiring treks in the world. Cross tropical blue streams and wade through lush meadows of wild grapevines, clamber up narrow side canyons with red rock walls towering thousands of feet overhead, even take a swim beside a 200 ft. waterfall. Each day you will dine on healthy, hearty meals prepared by your trip leaders. All the guided hikes in Havasupai are optional and you are welcome to choose to instead spend a lazy afternoon or morning reading a book in a hammock by Havasu creek. Remember, it’s your vacation. Make it what you wish. We have options from high adventure to peaceful relaxation. Hiking: 4-8 miles Meals: All meals included and prepared in camp Lodging: Established campground in Havasupai

Are there any showers or bathing facilities in base camp? There are no shower facilities in Havasupai. You can either bathe in the beautiful swimming hole at our base camp or we can provide you with a solar shower; just ask your guides for one upon arrival at camp. Please bring biodegradable soap, which can be purchased at any outdoor-oriented store (such as REI) and can also be found at health food stores. Guests with long hair may prefer to bring biodegradable shampoo also. Leave-in conditioners are recommended as well.
 
The toilet facilities are composting toilets located a short walk from our campsite. We do supply toilet paper, but it is always nice to have your own roll in your tent. Ask your guides for helpful hints and etiquette for using these toilets. And here’s one for the ladies … feminine hygiene products should be brought in plastic Ziploc bags. Please bring extra Ziplocs for disposal after use and consider putting duct tape on the outside of the bag to keep the contents private. Please remember: your guides (whether female or male) have spent many days with groups in the backcountry. They have certainly heard your questions before and will always be helpful and mindful of your privacy. Plus, they may have extra supplies should you need any.

We often accommodate vegan, gluten-free, nut allergies, Kosher and others. If we are unable to accommodate your request or need more information to do so, we will contact you prior to the trip.

ABOUT HAVASUPAI: Havasu Canyon is one of over 600 side canyons forming the 277-mile long Grand Canyon. While over 5 million people per year visit Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim, far fewer venture to the remote Havasupai Indian Reservation deep in the heart of Grand Canyon. Home to the Havasupai Tribe for hundreds of years, the canyon is a land of towering waterfalls, beautiful cascades, and tropical blue-green pools. This lush oasis is considered the “gem” of Grand Canyon.

Local Coordinator

Over a decade ago, Nick Martin dropped the suit-and-tie for a baseball cap and bike shorts and started a career as Guide. A teacher at heart and animated storyteller, he fell into this noble profession with ease and has been honing the art of canyon cooking, historical interpretation and packing coolers ever since. Nick's sense of humor, irrepressible smile and articulate communication have convinced hundreds of big, little, old and young folks to trust their abilities. An outdoor recreation Jack of all trades, he constantly switches between his mountain bike, skis, running shoes, climbing harness and slew of topographical maps of the Southwest US. When he's not exploring the confines of Canyonlands or guiding trips in our nations' greatest parks, he's probably skiing powder off the snowy ridges of the San Juan Mountains, diving with whale sharks in the Gulf of Thailand, trekking the Great Wall of China in a snowstorm, drinking cold beer on one of the 7,200 islands of the Philippines or practicing Spanish in Patagonia. He's held a Wilderness First Responder certification since 2007.
