* For this trip, you will have to arrive the night before the departure date at the South Rim. This nightâ€™s stay will be an additional cost.
* On the day of your trip you will meet your hiking guide at 4:45 a.m. in the lobby of the Bright Angel Lodge for your 9.5-mile hike down into the Canyon with your personal gear.
* On your last day, you will arrive at Whitmore Wash where you will take a helicopter out of the Canyon to the Bar 10 Ranch. From the Ranch you will take a charter flight back to the South Rim or on to Las Vegas. The outfitter recommends not arranging for further flights out of Las Vegas until after 5:00 p.m.
* Please note: In September and October, the National Park has decreed that helicopters are unable to fly into the Canyon except for emergencies. As a result of this new rule you will have to hike out at Whitmore Wash: this hike is about an hour long and upon arrival at the Rim you will receive a bus ride across the lava field to the Bar 10 Ranch to take your charter flight.
