Havasupai Falls is a literal wonderland. No place on earth has this mix of stunning blue water, enormous waterfalls, and steep canyons.

It is LITERALLY in the Grand Canyon people. The canyons surrounding Havasupai Falls could NOT be better, after all there is no place on earth called the Grander Canyon…

Stop 1 – Havasu Falls

You will finish your hike down the Grand Canyon by being treated to one of the most stunning waterfalls EVER! Havasu Falls. 100 feet tall, blue water flowing over red rocks into a deep pool below.

Stop 2 – Camp Havasupai

Selecting your campsite in Havasupai Falls is CRUCIAL to having the time of your life. We will share all of our tips and tricks we learned on the ground.

Stop 3 – Mooney falls

After you select a campsite, you can head to the South end of the campsite to see Mooney Falls. At 200 feet, twice as high as Havasu Falls, and even more beautiful, if that is even possible.

Stop 4 – Beaver Falls

During your 3 night trip (you can only go for 3 nights now starting in 2019…) you HAVE to go to Beaver Falls MULTIPLE times. Beaver Falls is Julie’s favorite place in the world. Not saying that as a figure of speech. It is her favorite place in the world. Period.

Stop 5 – Confluence

If you feel up to the task, the Confluence of Havasu Creek and the Colorado River is 8 miles EACH WAY, but oh so worth it! Havasu Creek = BLUE. Colorado River = Brown. When the two rush together, the colors don’t blend, they swirl. Like a cotton candy & chocolate frozen yogurt creation!
