To provide fantastic food to our Grand Canyon hiking guests we customize our menus based on the preferences of the group, and we do not use dehydrated backpacking meals - you can expect abundant, delicious food to fuel and motivate you on your Grand Canyon hike! We also regularly accommodate specialty diets.

Gear must be optimally dependable, durable and functional, so we purchase from only the best outdoor gear companies like Osprey, Black Diamond, and MSR. Our Grand Canyon trips include equipment with a retail value of up to $1,000 per guest.

4. Comprehensive Risk Management

Safety on our Grand Canyon hiking tours and Grand Canyon backpacking trips is the number one priority. All Grand Canyon hiking guides are certified Wilderness First Responders or EMTs, and each carries a field-issued first aid kit, comprehensive list of medical protocols, and a state-of-the-art emergency communication device. We also have a 24-hour on-call line that our staff, guests, and family members of guests can call any time (literally) to speak with a company representative.

5. All-inclusive Tours

Some Grand Canyon hiking companies don't provide sleeping bags, sleeping pads, backpacks and other items, or they charge "gear rental" fees for use of these items - on our trips those items are fully included in the trip price. What about meals, permit fees and transportation fees? All totally included. (Some Grand Canyon day hikes meet inside the Park and do not include transportation.)

"I can't imagine a better way to experience the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim. Our guide was super amazing. Myriam shared her expertise and love for Grand Canyon throughout the trip. She prepared us for the Canyon conditions, equipped us with everything we could possible need and fed us fabulous meals. We loved that she shared the history and making of the Canyon, the formations and its inhabitants. We thoroughly enjoyed our adventure! Thank you Wildland Trekking! Cheers!" - Janet Y.

"Amazing challenging and beautiful trip -- I can't imagine doing this trip without a guide that knows where all the emergency phones are on the trial (along with a satellite phone) just in case they are needed. Our guide, Michael Wichman, was wonderful; he cooked delicious meals for us as well as provided interesting and knowledgable facts along the way." - Curt and Lorna Westfall

"Shayne was a truly outstanding and professional guide. He made my first experience hiking the Grand Canyon unforgettable. I felt like I was hiking/hanging out with a close friend or family member! He shared my energy and enthusiasm which made the day so meaningful and worthwhile. His knowledge and expertise was so impressive, I received a full geology lesson of the canyon as well! I really can't say enough great things about my experience or thank Shayne enough for being such a wonderful guide and enjoyable company!" -Mala Lall
