Here are some of our favorite adventures that you can experience during your stay:


Take a National Park Tour 
Explore Grand Canyon National Park in a manner consistent with its magnificence.  Tour highlights include Grand Canyon Village, Yavapai Point (most expansive view of canyon), Mather Point, Grandview Point, Tusayan Ruins, Lipan Point, and Desert View. Throughout the day you will see stunning desert landscapes and expert guides will share their knowledge of local geology, flora and fauna, biology, natural and cultural history.


Relax with a Jeep Sunset Safari 
Bypass long waiting lines and venture off road down historic stagecoach trails through the Kaibab Forest in search of elk, deer and turkey en route to the Canyon’s edge where you will witness one of the world’s most magnificent vistas – sunset at the Grand Canyon.  You will see viewpoints along the Canyon’s edge while learning about geologic formations, inner canyon trails and the Colorado River. The day will end at the best sunset spot – spectacular Grandview Point where the fading sunlight turns the Canyon into a kaleidoscope of colors.


Explore the Scenery with a Guided Hike 
Make your way onto the peaceful desert trails by foot with time to take it all in. Expert guides can help you adventure away from the beaten path of Grand Canyon National Park with off-trail exclusive hiking routes, where you’ll spend the day encountering terrain only the locals can navigate. No matter where you choose to go, your trip will educate and entertain you while you view some of the most incredible and breathtaking scenery on the planet.


Bike Your Way Around the Rim 
No trip to the Grand Canyon area is complete without an exhilarating bike tour. Hop onto a bike and ride along the historic Hermit Road route that winds along the Canyon’s Rim for 5.5 miles and is closed to public vehicle traffic.  This is hands down the best scenic bike route to do in the West and boasts some of the grandest views of the Grand Canyon.  The tour starts at Hopi Point and ends at Hermit’s Rest.


Experience Whitewater Rafting 
Explore the Grand Canyon by rafting through the rushing waters of one of the Smokies’ rivers. You will spend your time relaxing in calm waters, tackling exhilarating rapids, viewing wildlife, and soaking in the sunshine… all while taking in the stunning surroundings of a top seven wonder of the world.
