South Rim Mule Trip to the River



Description:

Not that you don't have to be physically fit, but riding a mule down to the canyon floor and back is a lot easier than riding your legs. The mule trips in the canyon are guided tours and you can expect to ride with a thick group of people. The overnight tour costs a little over $400 but includes food and lodging for the days and night you are riding. These trips fill up quickly and can be scheduled up to thirteen months in advance. Schedule a trip with Xanterra Parks & Resorts. Call (303) 297-2757 or toll free (888) 297-2757, or FAX (303) 297-3175. Visit: www.grandcanyonlodges.com.plan ahead for Mule Trip details.

Day 1 - Grand Canyon


Since you will have made reservations for a mule trip at Xanterra Parks & Resorts, (303) 297-2757 or toll free (888) 297-2757, or FAX (303) 297-3175, most of your work is taken care of. For the night before the ride down, stay at one of the lodges inside the canyon, found at grandcanyonlodges.com. El Tovar is the most elegant and also the most expensive. Yavapai Lodge, Bright Angel Lodge and Maswik Lodge are all fantastic choices as well--as long as you're on the rim of the Grand Canyon, all is good. One last option for lodging is pitching a tent on one of the campgrounds on the rim. All of these options require reservations, so visit or call the appropriate Grand Canyon sources to secure a place to stay.
