Inner Canyon, Grand Canyon National Park

(5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Explore the quite different interior of the Grand Canyon, with shadeless desert contrasting against cool forests at Inner Canyon. Although summer temperatures around the Colorado River reach well over 38 C (100 F), the abundance of springs and streams create pleasant oases, with many sandy beaches lining the river itself. Observe the waterfalls, spring wildflowers, and cactuses as you reach the bottom of the canyon by hiking, mule-riding, river rafting, or via an aerial tour. With the proper permits, you can camp under the rim of the canyon at campgrounds with running water, toilet facilities, and phone lines. Alternatively, you can stay at a ranch with cabins available as part of the mule tour.

  • What an amazing trip, the views are excellent. We hiked down in July and it was so hot!! But the views made it worth it. 
  • It is a unique experience. I recommend you to visit the place because the natural beauty of the grand canyon is indescribable

  • Indian Gardens' campsites offer a nice shade, serenity and seclusion after a good days hike. Running water and outhouses were a welcome bonus.
