Thank you for your support over all of these years. Unfortunately CenterFocus Experiences is closing after 10 years of dedicated work to serve the public, our local communities, and our land.

Check out, as they are picking up the same ethic and quality of service that CenterFocus represented during the past decade. The owner of this company was the operations manager for us through all of our experiences here at CenterFocus, and will continue to carry our mission forward.

If looking for canyoneering instruction, you can email ACA certified pro guide Garrett Bennett at It has been both a challenging and rewarding chapter in my life running this company, and I wish everyone the best of luck in your future endeavors in the wilderness environments.

Cheers – Garrett Bennett and David Malpas, Founders, CenterFocus Experiences

Grand Canyon Backpacking

CenterFocus provides guided Grand Canyon backpacking trips and tours from two days to one week. Our trips are perfect for those embarking on their first desert backpacking experience, or for the experienced hiker looking to be taken off of the beaten path. Our guided Grand Canyon backpacking trips will take you to remote oasises filled with springs and pools, into adventurous slots through beautiful pink walled granite, and across airy vistas with huge views. Our guides are experts on the geology, history, flora, fauna and archeology of the canyon, and they will provide interpretive information throughout the hike. All of our guides are Medical First Responders though the National Outdoor Leadership School to assure that you are safe throughout the trip. High quality equipment is provided, and all permits, meals, snacks and drinks are included. These tours can be adapted to meet the need of the backpacking novice, or that of the advanced hiker.

For those looking to experience an overnight backpacking adventure into the Grand Canyon, but don't want to carry a heavy backpack, we offer Porter Assisted options for these journeys. Enjoy being deep in the Grand Canyon going from Rim to Rim or down the Hermit trail with the convenience of only carrying a day pack.
