We offer both popular and extreme trek itineraries at Grand Canyon. Popular treks use existing trails to campsites. Geology, natural and human history are interpreted by the guides. Parties consist of 1 to 9 clients. On extreme itineraries groups are off trail in the remote canyon for 6 or more days. These are expedition level treks for experienced travelers.
Guides cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We attempt to start on the trail early each day, taking breaks as needed and setting camp in spectacular settings. Rest days are often included for dayhiking and exploration. All treks are created around clients' desired dates and interests.
We have guided clients from age 9 through age 65 on popular treks. Families, singles, couple, seniors, and coworkers groups have had the trip of a lifetime with Sky Island Treks.
All needed camping gear is provided. We use the highest quality lightweight backpacking gear from many manufacturers. Tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mattresses, and kitchen gear are appropriate to the season and conditions to be encountered. A specific list of personal clothing needs is provided.
Physical training is recommended. Good general health and strength is needed. We work carefully with clients to insure that the proper itinerary is selected for their abilities. Pets are not allowed.
