Grand Canyon Biking - 5 Days

Duration

From
$1,295 USD

While nearly all of North America reels under hot summertime temperatures, the North Rim, at 9000-feet, offers delightfully cool, high altitudes escape. A raw-cut jewel in the national park system if not one of the most awe-inspiring features on Earth, the Grand Canyon’s incomparable majesty sunders nearly 280-miles of Northern Arizona highlands. No less than two-billion years of the earth’s history is on display here in the vermillion cliff-faces and golden canyon walls that rise a mile into the sky. From his dory that plied the unbridled Colorado River, early explorer Major John Wesley Powell compared it to “leaves in a great history book.”

This geologic virtuoso, one of America’s first national parks, was one of the tour operator's three original trip destinations. Gazing over the Canyon’s 9,200-ft North Rim, the immediate reaction of guests runs from fear to reverie, and all agree that the old Arizona and Rainbow Rim Trails are the best ways to experience the Grand Canyon.

Concealed in big Ponderosa pine and shimmering Aspen groves, the trail through Kaibab National Forest wends to a place that few have visited: the East Rim View. From the campsite on the edge of the Kaibab Plateau, you will savor extraordinary views. Trails brimming with wildflowers bring you to exhilarating hikes along the rim. Crossing over to the west side of the plateau, you will camp alongside one of the most scenic mountain bike paths in the world, the Rainbow Rim Trail.

Providing gently rolling terrain of lung-expanding dimensions, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon has been long-held as almost sacred ground to hikers and cyclists. For trekkers and active travelers of all levels, the chance to experience this singular section of Eternity is nothing less than the opportunity of a lifetime.

Private/custom tours/family getaways are also possible outside of the specified dates. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
