Hiking rim to rim is the most famous hike in Grand Canyon! A Rim to Rim backpacking trip offers the best overall impression of the Canyon because it allows one to truly see the diversity of the North Rim and the South Rim. We begin backpacking in the cool spruce and fir forests of the North Rim, descending the North Kaibab Trail. As we make our way down this relatively wide and well-maintained trail, the dramatic views unfold with every turn. We pass Roaring Springs, an idyllic watery oasis bursting from the canyon wall. Near the banks of Bright Angel Creek, Cottonwood Camp offers an intimate and peaceful first evening to enjoy the setting sun on the soaring cliffs.
The wondrous Ribbon Falls and serpentine turns of The Box highlight your second morning, with the afternoon offering the opportunity to explore historic Phantom Ranch & the Colorado River or relax beneath the shady cottonwoods in Bright Angel Camp, our home for the evening. We then cross the mighty Colorado and continue our trek southward, up to Indian Gardens and Plateau Point where we’ll enjoy sunset at one of the most incredible vantage points in the park. Our journey ends on the South Rim on Day 4.
A Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hiking tour is the finest way to experience what this incredible National Park has to offer.
In Sedona we will stay at a high end haven tucked into the heart of Sedona...
For 3 days we will enjoy this gorgeous, spacious high-end home with stunning red rock views, a hot tub, in-ground pool and an outdoor lounging area. It is also conveniently located near hiking and biking trails, vortex sites, restaurants, galleries, shopping and more!
The home provides plenty of privacy and a place to retreat for peace and relaxation. We will enjoy meals and downtime at our little getaway when we are resting from the amazing hikes taken in Sedona.
Views of some of the most famous vortex sites can be seen from the home - Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock and Chapel Of The Holy Cross. You will not be disappointed by this breathtaking retreat that is in the center of town but feels “away from it all.”
While backpacking we will enjoy delicious meals prepared by our guide. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all provided throughout the backpacking portion of the trip. All dietary needs will be met.
The cuisine in Sedona is absolutely outstanding! You will be served healthy breakfasts each morning out by the pool which will include eggs, fresh fruits, home baked breads, muffins, juices, coffee and tea.
Sedona is a great foodie destination where restaurants cater to every taste, from organic vegan options to sophisticated, international cuisine and indulgent, chef-driven menus served amid the legendary Sedona red rocks. You will enjoy views that are to die for while you dine and meet amazing people along the way.
Come and enjoy the sight of The Grand Canyon & Sedona. Ribbon Falls + The Colorado River are calling your name!
On day two of the trip you will hike down the North Kaibab trail into one of the biggest wonders of the world. You will experience some of the most expansive views you have ever seen. We will make a pit stop at Rainbow Falls, one of the most beautiful and mystical waterfalls in the canyon. As you soak in the views you feel that there is much more to this area than you realized and you feel rejuvenated and inspired.
At the campsite at the bottom of the canyon near Phantom Ranch you will have a chance to relax and dip into the refreshing Bright Angel Creek. After dinner you will enjoy an unforgettable sunset right on the banks of the Colorado River. You sit in awe with your fellow travelers reminiscing the day and your guide will share his/her wealth of knowledge and stories about the area.
On day three we will hike out of the canyon on The Bright Angel Trail enjoying big views of The Colorado River. It is the grandeur and strength of this amazing river that created the Grand Canyon. Hiking out on the Bright Angel Trail offers different views and sights than the hike down into the canyon.
While in Sedona you will enjoy the wide open vistas, some of the best hikes in the area and learn about the mystical vortexes.
Whether or not you believe that energy vortexes exist, one thing is for certain, there is “something” about Sedona that has made people travel there for something more than just its incredible beauty. You will visit a few of the strongest vortexes in the area - Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock and Boynton Canyon.
Sedona’s vortex energy is powerful and you will experience the benefits just by being there. Spiritual leaps and transformation can occur more quickly and easily in Sedona because of the vortex energy.

About Your Guide :-)
Hi, I'm Heather Feather. I have been drawn to hike in lodges, lodges you can only reach on foot, for a long time because they are off the beaten path and offer up a physical challenge - two of my favorite things! Physical challenges grow me in so many ways and are an essential part of my life.
My first experience visiting a hike in lodges was to Mt Leconte in The Smokey Mountains. It was outstanding and I just had to see more. After hearing about Phantom Ranch in The Grand Canyon I knew I had to go! Plus, the hike to Phantom Ranch would provide a bigger challenge.
I love out of the box experiences and have always been exploring beyond my limits. I believe a dream life is possible, won't settle for "just ok" love and and relationships, love exploring my physical limits and pushing my body to see what I am capable of. You don't have to settle!
That’s why I created “A Journey To The Unlimited Self” Grand Canyon Rim To Rim Hike + Sedona Excursion. This trip is a bucket list experience that will give you the opportunity to explore your physical as well as mental possibilities. You are stronger than you think!
I have never limited myself to what everyone else is doing or what I think I should do. I want that for you too!
I can't wait to share one of the amazing wonders of the world with you while pushing you beyond what you thought possible.
