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 www.phoenixwildernessadventures.com, 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 email@example.com. 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

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.
- Cancellation Policy: See Terms & Conditions
- Maximum backpacking group size is 11 people including our guides
- There is no minimum group size
- Havasupai has no group size limit
- You will be provided with quality meals prepared by our guides during your trip.
- Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free, and other dietary needs can be met upon request. Additional fees may apply.
- Snacks are included.
- Please notify us in regards to any food allergies.
Gear and Equipment:
CenterFocus will provide you with everything that is necessary to adventure with us in the Grand Canyon. We only use the finest packs, tents, sleeping bags, and equipment on all of our backpacking journeys. For more information please click here.
Our day hiking and backpacking tours are rated on a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being a couch potato and 10 being a marathon runner. Moderate to solid physical fitness is required for our backpacking trips. Participants should be active people hiking prior to our trips. More advanced journeys may require a higher level of fitness as well as some desert hiking experience. At CenterFocus, we will consult with you in regards to the prerequisites associated with each individual journey when needed.
How Do You Prepare:
We can, at your request, work with you to outline exercise programs and other creative ways, conducive to where you live, that will help you train and prepare for these once in a lifetime adventures.
