havasu falls

Join us for a Thanksgiving you will never forget! We will travel to the Supai campground and world famous Havasu Canyon during Thanksgiving Break. This will involve a moderately strenuous backpack of about 10 miles to/from the campground.

The price of this trip is $575 for the USD community. Space is limited. Financial Assistance is available.

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 Thanksgiving 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.

Additional Information


We'll drive to Mojave National Preserve where we will camp for the night. On day two we will wake up early, finish the drive to the canyon and backpack to Supai campground. We will spend 3 nights in Havasupai Canyon before hiking back out to the trailhead and starting our return to San Diego.
