Spring Break Havasu Falls

havasu falls

Join us for a Spring Break you will never forget! We begin by backpacking to the Supai campground and world famous Havasu Canyon and waterfalls. This will involve a moderately strenuous backpack of about 10 miles to/from the campground. After four days in the canyon, we will transition to the Grand Canyon for some amazing views and spectacular day hiking.  

The price of this trip is $645 for the USD community. Space is limited. Limited financial assistance is available fur undergraduate students thanks to generous support from Associated Students.

Havasupai Canyon

Havasupai Canyon, considered by many one of the most beautiful places on the planet is a tributary to the Colorado River. With turquoise water, clay cliffs, 200 foot waterfalls, and natural pools, it insures an incredible destination for Spring Break. We will backpack 10 miles into the Supai campground and then spend our break dayhiking and exploring one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The hike into and out of the Supai campground is rated as moderately difficult, while the dayhikes around the falls will generally be less challenging.
