This is the best part of the grand canyon!! We visited in May 2003. The hike was not as bad as we had imagined. The hardest part is walking in the deep sand in the village. I cannot describe exactly how I felt when I...More

This was a great trip, with challenging hikes and awesome views. I would recommend using a guide service (we used AOA) and hiking down to the canyon. The hike in and out are about 10 miles each way and rigorous but well worth it. The...More

This is probably the most famous of all the stops you will be making on a river trip down the Grand Canyon. Havasu Canyon is easily spotted by the crystal clear water flowing out into the Colorado. The inlet into Havasu creek provides the perfect...More

Amazing side hike while rafting the canyon with AZRA. This is a daylong hike from the mouth of them canyon. Popular with rafters so you can go as deep into Havasu as you want.
