This is an incredible way to spend Spring Break! Come explore one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Havasupai campground sits central to 5 waterfalls, each with their own unique beauty. The main attraction is Havasu Falls falling 100’ into a serene teal travertine pool contrasted by the orange Arizonan sandstone. Because this bucket-list trip has become so popular, getting a permit has become very hard. Let us navigate the permits and the driving, so you can enjoy the journey! Some hiking experience as well as a moderate level of fitness is required for this rigorous, but well worth the effort, trip. Trip price includes guides, transportation, equipment, camping fees and food while in camp. Space is limited so sign up early! Minimum age is 18.
If we have issues obtaining the permits, in early February notice and a full refund will be provided.
