Taking a backpacking and camping trip to Havasu Falls is an epic vacation you have to do at least once in your lifetime. Disconnect from our busy, materialistic world and rely only on yourself, the experience of your professional guide, and the gear you carry on your back. Backpacking is the most strenuous way to visit Havasu Falls. You will carry all of your gear including tents, sleeping bags/pads, food, and even group gear like the kitchen equipment will be shared among hikers. You must be comfortable carrying 35-45lbs on your back during the (10 mile) hike in and out of the canyon. Don’t have the gear? Rentals are available.
