Trip Info

Take on this adventure with Good Trip Adventures to learn all about the Grand Canyon National Park- named one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World for a reason. In addition, you’ll get to explore the nearby vast red rock landscape of Sedona- the perfect place for a mix of luxury and adventure.

This tour was super informative and enjoyable for me and my family! Our guide worked with us from the start to find short hikes and great locations to explore in the park! The day was packed but it had a great flow to it with a lovely picnic lunch to break things up. We learned a lot and could tell our guide had a lot of knowledge and respect for the park! Looking to book a trip with the company up in Yellowstone when we visit next year!

Weather

One of the best times to hike in the desert is during the fall. Temperatures will range between 70-90s with cooler evenings in the 40s-60s. You could anticipate an odd fall thunderstorm. Grand Canyon National Park sits at a higher elevation than Sedona, temperatures may vary.

Group 

This trip is open to Travel Agents and up to one adult guest. We’ll be driving and heading to activities as a group, led by your Good Trip guide. The group size will range from 8-9 total guests.

Intensity – Moderate

Expect to spend 3-8 hours walking or hiking over the course of the day with mild to moderate elevation change while carrying daypacks with water and snacks! Suitable for most fit people with a bit of hiking experience. While on a group trip, your guides will ensure the day is tailored to you!

Meals: D

Day 2

Today calls for an early start! You’ll spend the day hiking the trail down in Grand Canyon National Park. Your guides will take you off the beaten path for never ending sights, mesa views, and more. Learn about how the canyon was formed, the park’s flora and fauna, park history, and indigenous people! While at the Grand Canyon, keep in mind that what goes down- must come up! This is a moderately difficult/ strenuous hike that does require significant elevation gain. Breaks will be taken to ensure safety and accommodate various hiking levels. Take the evening to relax onsite soaking in all that your glamping stay has to offer- don’t forget the smores! Be sure to take a look up at the night sky- you might get to see the milky way.
