New Activity Option: Spend the Night Below the Rim

ALE is excited to announce a new offering to our long list of available activities. Starting in the Spring of 2019 we will be adding the option of camping below the rim in the Grand Canyon on to our special outfitting services.

The opportunity of camping below the rim of the Canyon is one of the top hiking and backpacking destinations on earth, and is on many visitors to the Canyon’s “Bucket List”. We wanted to have the ability to assist our guests that would like to have this incredible experience by providing a safe, informative, and one of a kind experience, as an optional add on to our activity offerings while on tour with us.

You, and one of our professional guides will hike down one of the inner canyon trails and spend the night (or two), at a camp below the rim of the Grand Canyon. Phantom Ranch, Indian Gardens, and Hermits Rest are just a few of the possible campsite locations within the inner Canyon.

You will have the choice of spending 1, or 2, nights below the rim of the canyon, as your own personal guide leads you down (and most importantly back up), on some of the most desired hiking trails, and backcountry destinations in America.

Along with your own private tour into the Canyon, we will provided you with a backpack for your clothes and personal items, that will also include a sleeping bag and liner, additional essential supplies, along with food, and snacks, all prepared especially for you.

By ALE providing everything you will need, we can make sure that the weight of the pack, along with the supplies will be lightest, and most comfortable possible by utilizing the best backcountry equipment available.

Your ALE guide will assist with everything from the setting up of your camp, to the preparing all of your meals, as you relax and take in the beauty, and solitude of the inner Canyon.

Our National Park certified ALE guides have spent years, and hiked hundreds of miles below the rim, and will share their experiences and knowledge, as well as uncovering the hidden secrets of the inner canyon, as you explore, and hike deeper into some of the oldest geological rock formations on earth, and embark on your own epic journey that will provide memories, and experiences that will last a lifetime.

* Due to the popularity, and the limited availability of permits issued for below the rim camping, advanced notification of this activity is highly recommended.
