A Grand Canyon Vacation: Enjoy Hiking, Rafting and Flightseeing Tours by Chad Stetson

A visit to the Grand Canyon is a dream getaway for any outdoor enthusiast or nature lover. The breathtaking beauty and abundance of outdoor activities makes this a top vacation destination for anyone who appreciates the grandeur of the Southwest.

What are you waiting for? There is no better time to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Start making your plans for a vacation of hiking, rafting and flightseeing at one of the world’s great natural wonders.

There is nowhere else in the world like the Grand Canyon for hiking! You can find any type of hike imaginable, from easy 15-minute hikes to hiking expeditions that last for two weeks or more. If you are more adventurous, there are even unmaintained trails that will take you well off the beaten path. Use caution when hiking in the Grand Canyon. This is the Southwest and it can get very hot and the elevation changes in the canyon can cause stress on the body. Take plenty of water and rest frequently during your hiking trip.

The most popular hiking trail in the Grand Canyon is the Bright Angel Trail. The trail will take you to the bottom of the canyon and then back up again. If you are only at the Grand Canyon for the day, you will need to stop and start heading back when you hit the Indian Gardens, which is about a 9.8 mile round trip. To get to the bottom of the trail and back, you would need to hike 19.2 miles.

Another popular outdoor activity in the canyon is white water rafting. Guided rafting trips are offered daily during the summer. Most trips last a few days or so, but they can be as long as 18 days. If you are looking for a one-day ride, you will need to contact Rafting America. They are a national rafting referral service that will hook you up with the perfect company to meet your needs. You don’t need to embark on a white-knuckle adventure; you can choose a relaxing float down the river, which is ideal for families.

If you would rather head out for several days, contact Arizona River Runners. This is one of the most experienced touring companies in the canyon and they offer trips for three, six, seven, eight and 13 days. They will provide you with all the equipment and gear you need during your excursion. This company is passionate about maintaining the beauty of the environment, so make sure to respect the scenery and wildlife during your adventure.

Another great way to view the canyon is by taking a flightseeing tour. These tours are provided by helicopters or airplanes that take you on a scenic flight over the canyon. One of the more popular flightseeing tours is provided by a company operated out of Las Vegas, called Maverick Aviation Group. You can tour both the south and west rims of the Grand Canyon by taking either a plane or a helicopter.

The Grand Canyon is an awe-inspiring sight. The beauty and magnificence will take your breath away. If you love the outdoors and enjoy outdoor activities, this is the perfect vacation destination for you. You'll enjoy beautiful views, white water rafting and exhilarating hikes.

Don’t forget to pack your spirit of adventure when next you visit the Southwest. The Grand Canyon is the perfect vacation destination for those looking to get away from it all and test themselves physically.
