OARS' Rim to River hiking adventures take you into one of the deepest parts of the Grand Canyon with an overnight stay at historic Phantom Ranch.

Your adventure begins with opportunities to explore Walnut Canyon and Wupatki National Monuments for a glimpse into the ancient past of the local inhabitants. You'll then spend a restful night at the South Rim in preparation for the invigorating hike into the canyon.

The South Kaibab Trail opens your eyes to panoramic vistas that overwhelm the senses as you take in the canyon's grandeur.

At Phantom Ranch you'll find a relaxing retreat to enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the canyon. The next morning, lace up your hiking shoes again and conquer the Bright Angel Trail for the trek out of the canyon. A well-earned celebratory dinner culminates the hiking adventure.

The next day, experience the canyon from above as you hike along the rim before your return to Flagstaff.
