Every now and then, a hiking trip comes together that really spikes our pulse. Grand Canyon National Park: Rim-to-River-to-Rim, since its inception several seasons ago, has always been that kind of experience. We truly believe that, if you're a hiker to the core, at some time in your life you need to hike the Grand Canyon from rim-to-river-to-rim. New this year, we thought "wouldnt it be fun to hike in reverse, South to North so here we go.

This is for those guests whom want a mini active vacation.Rim-to-River-to-Rim will assemble in Flagstaff early morning of Day 1 and we'll shuttle to the South Rim, arriving early enough for a leisurely walk along the Rim end explore.
