What should I bring and what should I wear for my trip to the Grand Canyon?

You should wear comfortable shoes, a hat to keep your head protected from the sun, sunglasses, and sunscreen. It may be cool in the early morning or evening and can get very hot in the afternoons. A light shirt, shorts and a rain jacket are recommended in warmer months. It does rain in Arizona so you may also want to carry an umbrella. Light day packs are great for carrying everything you will need and for filling up with all of the wonderful souvenirs that you will find at the many gift shops. Of course, don’t forget your camera with plenty of film.

For those going on the Colorado River Rafting Adventure, please wear shoes that are ok to get wet. There will be an opportunity for swimming; swimsuits & towels are optional.

What will the temperature be at the Grand Canyon?

Spring and Fall weather is extremely unpredictable. Be prepared for sudden changes in the weather during these seasons. Summer temperatures on the South Rim are relatively pleasant (50°s – 80°s F / 10°s – 20°s C). Inner canyon temperatures are often extreme. Daytime highs often exceed 100° F / 38° C. In the winter you can expect cold weather and possibly snow.

“I can’t decide between the Colorado River Rafting Adventure and the Grand Experience Tour. What do you suggest?”

If you have not already seen the Grand Canyon, then choose one of our Grand Canyon tours. The Colorado River Rafting is above the Grand Canyon in Glen Canyon. This tour focuses more broadly on the Northern Arizona area, whereas our Grand Canyon tours focus almost entirely on the Grand Canyon. You will not see the Grand Canyon from the rafting tour. The river rafting tour is a wonderful compliment to one of our Grand Canyon tours, and it’s a lot of fun! Plus, if you reserve both tours you will save 10% off of each tour!
