When are multi-day backpacking trips into the Grand Canyon and Havasuapi available?
Most Grand Canyon multi-day backpacking trips are guided year-round with the exception of our Rim-to-Rim trips which take place from May to November. Havasupai is guided from March to December. Instead of only offering tours on specific dates, forcing you to join a pre-existing group, CenterFocus will work with you to schedule a trip for when it is convenient for you. As a result, we accept reservations for any dates, year-round. Upon submitting an information or reservation request via telephone or email for your desired dates, CenterFocus will provide you with the dates that we already have groups scheduled for. You are welcome to join one of these pre-existing trips, or request your own trip dates. If you request your own trip dates, CenterFocus will immediately begin to work on permitting for these days. You will be notified shortly regarding whether or not permitting was possible. If permitting is possible, we will reserve and guide you on your requested dates.
Booking a backpacking trip with CenterFocus:
Backpacking trips may be booked from 2 days to a year in advance. However, as backpacking permits in Grand Canyon National Park can be difficult to acquire, we advise you to make a reservation 4-12 months in advance. The sooner the better, as we cannot guarantee availability for these trips as guests come to the Grand Canyon and Havasupai from around the world.
