Grand Canyon issues backcountry permits through a lottery system.
We are required to have at least one registered guest to apply for a permit.
We apply for permits 4 months in advance on the 1st of the month (see table below).
Month You'd Like Trip to Start
You'll receive a 5% discount for registering pre-permit and can pick any dates you'd like.
We have a good success rate with securing permits.
If unsuccessful your deposit is fully transferrable or refundable.
Small groups (5 or less) have a higher success rate than large groups (6 or more).
If possible, it's best to provide backup dates and itineraries.
Backup dates are best as broad as possible (i.e. "any time in March" or "between March 1 and 15"...etc.).
