Arizona's canyon country is justly famous. From the colorful chasm known as the Grand Canyon to the high waterfalls, sparkling pools, and blue green stream of Havasu Canyon to the red rocks of Sedona, it is a never ending feast for the eyes. The best way to see it is on foot, and we'll combine lots of hiking with time to relax and absorb the beauty of the area as we explore these three very different areas. If you have been wanting a more intimate view of the area than most people ever get, please join us for seven days of hiking, eating, relaxing, and laughing. $2350 Rating: 1 2   5.
