More About Inn-based Grand Canyon Tours

Is an Inn-based Hiking Tour Right for Me?

Our Inn-based Grand Canyon hiking tours give guests the ability to discover and explore the Grand Canyon with a maximum amount of comfort. We hike big, eat well, and sleep well. Guests also learn a tremendous amount about the natural and cultural history of the Canyon and the South Rim Village, including amazing stories of early pioneers and canyon entrepreneurs. We hike famous Grand Canyon trails like the South Kaibab Trail and Bright Angel Trail, but we also explore more wild and obscure trails like Hermit and Grandview. All in all, an inn-based tour is a great option for anyone looking to get to know the Canyon on foot and who enjoys all the modern creature comforts.

The Wildland Inn-based Experience

Wildland Trekking inn-based tours are unique in that we still make it our top priority to introduce guests to the wild side of the Grand Canyon, despite the fact we're staying in hotels or lodges. You can expect to go on long, amazing hikes that get you far into the Canyon. But you can also expect wonderful meals and cozy accommodations.

When to Hike Grand Canyon?

One of the beauties of inn-based tours is that they're great year round! In the Spring and Fall everything is great in the Grand Canyon, so that's easy enough. Winters are quiet and pristine, day time temperatures are perfect for hiking, and the chilly nights make for cozy sleeping. Summers can be very hot at the bottom of the Canyon, so on Phantom Ranch Tours the air conditioning feels amazing; and our rim-based tours stay in the cooler, upper half of the Canyon which is quite comfortable.
