When you hike with Canyonology Treks, you hike with a medically trained, Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certified guide. But backcountry safety is about much more than responding to emergencies — there’s nothing like an attentive, experienced, well-equipped guide who knows shady rest spots with great views.
We are Grand Canyon.
It’s in our name. Canyonology Treks operates exclusively in Grand Canyon National Park. We don’t do tours in Las Vegas, Sedona, or Phoenix. We don’t waste energy on a retail gear operation. Grand Canyon is our bread and butter.
We specialize in guided day hikes.
We do one thing, and we do it well. Other companies do a great job leading multi-day backpack trips all over the West. We do a great job leading day trips into Grand Canyon. We share our specialized knowledge in a special place.
You get local knowledge from a local guide.
Big tour companies hire guides with no local connections. Your guide lives and works in Grand Canyon National Park. That means local knowledge, local expertise, and local experience.
This is Grand Canyon done right.
The best way to experience Grand Canyon is on a hike beneath the rim. A typical tourist can drive to a crowded overlook, pay for an overpriced cafeteria lunch, and spend less time in the entire park then you spend on just one of Grand Canyon’s world-class trails. Hikers enjoy fresh air, solitude, and a picnic lunch prepared just for them.
People really like us.
A friendly and personable guide is just the beginning. People also love our ability to answer all kinds of questions, from the common queries to the curveball stumpers. Hiking with us is like having a park ranger all to yourself.
Booking is easy.
Grand Canyon is more fun with a guide.
This is the bottom line for us. If we couldn’t provide a great experience, we wouldn’t be in business. Travelers spend hundreds of dollars getting to this remote and amazing place. Our job isn’t just to lead a nice hike — it’s to provide the payoff for the time and expense that you spent getting here.
We back up our promises.
This is the bottom line for you. We put our money where our mouth is and offer a satisfaction guarantee. If we didn’t meet your expectations, just let us know within three days — you’ll get a full refund. It’s that easy.
