HAVASU CREEK IS NOT EASILY ACCESSIBLE - Grand Canyon and Havasu Creek are not for individuals looking for a day trip with inner-tube floats and easy strolls. Please keep reading before calling.
Western River Expeditions offers 6-7 day rafting trips through Grand Canyon which can include half a day spent exploring the first two miles of Havasu Creek where it meets the Colorado River. If you want to visit Havasu Creek with Western River Expeditions, you’ll need to be willing to spend 5-6 days rafting 150+ miles of the actual Grand Canyon, seeing all kinds of other amazing waterfalls and sights the Grand Canyon has to offer. If that interests you, then keep reading - or give us a call!
We do not offer guided backpacking tours. If you want to hike to Havasu Falls from the rim of the Grand Canyon, be prepared for an 8 mile backpack trek from the rim of Grand Canyon through the Havasupai Indian Reservation. You will need to contact them for a hiking permit. Learn more on sites like NPS.gov and others.
A few popular viral videos seem to depict the Grand Canyon as easily swimmable through turquoise waters. In reality, only about 100 yards of Havasu Creek are depicted in one 30 second video, making it appear that ALL 10 miles of Havasu Creek are easily swimmable, or accessible by kayak or raft. We love to explore the lower section of Havasu Canyon, but exploring all 10 miles of Havasu Creek is a significant endeavor with elevation gain and rough hiking trails between each pool along the creek.
