Advanced Grand Canyon Hiking Tour

"The Sky Island Extreme"

Hiker deep in Grand Canyon

This is an extreme Grand Canyon hiking adventure for physically fit adults and teens.  The trail drops dramatically and precariously into the canyon along steep and narrow ledges.  After descending 3000 vertical feet into the canyon, participants arrive at a flat mile long mesa that extends into the canyon.  Evidence of a 100 year old mining camp is strewn about, and there is a deep karst cave that is open to exploration.  Standing atop 1000 foot cliffs while surrounded by towering pinnacles and buttes participants may feel as if they are walking along a "sky island".

  • A strenuous but rewarding adventure in the Grand Canyon!  Transportation to and from your hotel directly to the trailhead.
  • We provide everything that you need:  all necessary gear.  Experienced hikers are welcome to bring their own equipment.
  • Devour a fabulous lunch on the sky island.
  • Your hiking guide is well versed in the geology, flora and fauna and human history of the canyon.  In addition, all hiking guides are trained Wilderness First Responders.
