Grand Canyon Guided Backpacking Trips

Experience the wonders of the Grand Canyon on a guided backpacking tour

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a dream shared by millions of people around the world. Every year travelers come from far and wide to stand on the edge of one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, but relatively few of them climb over the rim and explore the canyon’s inner reaches.

A guided backpacking trip is an excellent way to become acquainted with a more demanding level of outdoor adventuring or to explore a new and unfamiliar wilderness region. AOA’s outdoor guides are highly-skilled, professional, wilderness first responder certified with all the know-how and experience to make your backpacking trip the adventure of a lifetime.
