More About Grand Canyon Basecamp Tours
Is a Basecamp Tour Right for Me?
Our Grand Canyon basecamp hiking tours are fantastic for guests looking to have a diverse hiking experience of the Grand Canyon and a general outdoor experience, particularly in the late spring, summer and early fall. The bottom of the Grand Canyon gets extremely hot in the summer (105+ degrees fahrenheit in the shade), but the rims are still quite nice as they are 4500-5500 feet higher than the bottom of the Canyon. That's a massive difference! What it means is that while a hike to the bottom isn't right for everyone in the warmer months, a fantastic hiking and camping experience can still be had. Our basecamp tours also provide a very high level of value - transportation, meals, gear, entrance fees, permits, and guides are all included in the trip cost!
The Wildland Basecamp Hiking Experience
On our Grand Canyon basecamp tours you can expect to enjoy a comfortable, outdoor experience at the South or North Rim while getting fantastic hikes in and eating wonderful meals. You'll get to know the Grand Canyon by hiking multiple trails like the South Kaibab, Bright Angel, North Kaibab, Grandview and more! And you get to focus 100% on the Canyon and on hiking while your guide(s) take care of everything.
When to do a Grand Canyon Basecamp Tour?
We offer basecamp tours at the Grand Canyon in late spring, summer and early fall. As mentioned above, the rims are 4500-5500 feet higher than the bottom of the Canyon. The South Rim is at approximately 7000 feet, and the North Rim is at approximately 8000 feet. At these elevations spring can remain quite cool and fall temperatures can dip low. But in the shoulder months and the summer, it's perfect, because while the bottom of the Canyon gets too hot for many people, the rims are perfect!
