Arrive Phoenix, Arizona / Scenic Drive to Grand Canyon National Park
Arrive in Phoenix, Arizona and secure your rental car (arranged independently). Drive 3.5 hours north to the most iconic landmark in the American West, the Grand Canyon.
Enjoy the rest of the day exploring Grand Canyon National Park. We recommend taking an afternoon walk on the Rim Trail. This flat trail follows the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, offering spectacular views and photography opportunities from the top of the Canyon. You can begin hiking from any viewpoint in the Grand Canyon Village or along Hermit Road. The Shuttle Bus makes many stops along the trail. The Rim Trail covers 13 miles from the South Kaibab Trailhead to Hermit's Rest, most of the trail is paved. Hike as much as you like and then catch the shuttle bus back to your starting point.
Overnight in or near the National Park in the best available accommodations. Lodging based on double occupancy.
