Grand Canyon Field Institute Opportunity
Grand Canyon Association is excited to announce aGrand Rim Adventure, a daily half-day walking tour led by our expert Grand Canyon Field Institute instructors, available for same day booking, from June 13 to August 31.
A Grand Rim Adventure will share the compelling stories of the canyon’s rocks, plants, animals, landmark structures and colorful historic characters—all told against the spectacular backdrop of the canyon itself. And if you are lucky you just may have encounters with California condors, desert bighorn sheep, flowering plants and perhaps even a rainbow or two!
A Grand Rim Adventure is an ideal option for families with children, adults not interested in hiking below the rim, anyone visiting the park for a single day or less, or even for hardy backcountry types who are seeking a more leisurely but enriching experience.
With a maximum of 10 participants per tour, this 3.5-hour walk begins daily at 1 p.m. Reservations can only be made in person at in Verkamps Visitor Center (just east of the El Tovar Hotel) in Grand Canyon Village up to seven days prior to one’s desired tour date.
