What is there to do?

Grand Canyon: It's What We Do! Nobody knows Grand Canyon like our team of instructors, which includes professional geologists, biologists, anthropologists, botanists, archaeologists, historians, artists, as well as National Park Service resource specialists. When you join a GCFI class you can expect an authoritative, in-depth immersion into the grandest of canyons. Our classes are intimate (2 to 12 participants), and visit more intriguing destinations from rim-to-river than any other company in the business.

We offer fun and informative educational classes and tours for everyone, from thrill-seekers to chill-seekers. On day hikes, backpacks, and whitewater rafting trips, GCFI’s expert instructors share the must-see wonders of the Grand Canyon with park visitors. We treat young and old, small groups and solo travelers, to what is often described as the trip-of-a-lifetime!

Grand Canyon is a must-see destination! The Grand Canyon is one of the crown jewels of the National Park System, it is a World Heritage Site, one of the few land features on the planet visible from space, has more biodiversity than any other national park, harbors an archaeological record spanning 12,000 years, cradles the mighty Colorado River with its world-famous whitewater rapids, and attracts 4.5 million visitor per year (second only to Great Smoky National Park). So what are you waiting for? Sign up today for the grandest trip of your life!
